Der Sound des Spiels kann als hervorragend bezeichnet werden, was nicht zuletzt darauf zurückzuführen ist, daß ROB HUBBARD dafür verantwortlich zeichnet. Auch der Sound während des Spiels kann sich durchaus hören lassen. Überhaupt sind Musik- und Geräuscheffekte das Beste am ganzen Spiel. Wer also unbedingt als tapferer Sternenkrieger sein Glück versuchen will, der ist mit WAR sicherlich gut bedient. Wer allerdings Uridium schon besitzt, der kann auf WAR ruhig verzichten.

Daß es "W.A.R." an Originalität mangelt, ist keine Frage, denn viel offensichtlicher kann man eigentlich nicht bei einem Komkurrenzprodukt abkupfern. Die Qualität des Vorbilds wird auch prompt nicht erreicht. Dieser Software-Clone ist nun so übel auch wieder nicht; technisch ist das Spiel sauber gemacht und hat durchaus einen gewissen Unterhaltungswert. Ein Tip für Actionfans.

In my view W.A.R. is a game that had a lot of potential which failed to come through. Summing up best done by quoting someone who played the game by saying 'it's a 2nd class Uridium'.

W.A.R. is without doubt a professionally produced game. The gameplay, graphics and sound are what we have come to expect from Martech. But the game is so similar to Uridium that if you already played the original, it makes W.A.R. seem outdated and dull. If you've already brought Uridium, you'll not give this a second chance. If you haven't played either game, give both of them a test before you buy. My money's on Uridium every time.
The game itself is a really dull one - just sitting around waiting for the time limit to finish so you can land. Shooting loads of dots and the occasional craft isn't my idea of fun. The graphics aren't too bad, it's just the game is lacking any freneticism or panic, qualities which are essential in a shoot em up.
