Amateurs d'échanges commerciaux et de stratégie militaire, voici un jeu taillé à votre mesure.
Still, Third World War isn't all bad once you've gotten the hang of it. There's an appeal to nuking the French or invading South Africa. And with five scenarios and 16 countries to command, there's a variety of ways to challenge yourself.
Students of geopolitical economics and current events will get the most enjoyment from Third World War. Action-oriented gamers will find this war slow, their jet-jockey reflexes sidelines by ponderous decision making.
Video Games & Computer Entertainment
The detailed gameplay and total absence of action scenes make Third World War an excellent choice for war and strategy gamers, but there isn't enough audiovisual pizazz (especially for a CD) to hold most players' attention.

A war simulator with several scenarios, where you can build a military and economic superpower, among other things. This one involves a lot of statistics and is geared more toward strategy lovers than anyone else.
But while it's hard to dislike any game that includes options like ''aid terrorism'' and ''manipulate media,'' Third World War is a bit dull-by the time the shooting starts, you'll probably have tuned in CNN to catch the real thing.
