But World in Conflict is different, and very special. It has the story, it has the characters, the cast, the talent, and the beauty. It has the tightly tuned mechanics, outstanding missions, and unique additions to the gameplay model. It is, in a word, the kind of game almost anyone would want to play—particularly those who don’t normally like the RTS format. In fact, the only people I know who didn’t like World in Conflict are the really annoying strategy buffs, the ones who are unable or unwilling to accept any kind of realignment in their precious, hexagonal universe. Everyone else, even if RTS is a style of play that has never interested you, I say you’re doing yourself a disservice to ignore this one. It is a masterpiece, a towering achievement that has already found a home among my Most Beloved games.

World in Conflict is a triumph for Massive Entertainment. The developers have managed to take a quirky "action game" take on the real-time strategy genre and wrap it in an instantly appealing, accessible and highly polished package. Everything from the game's beautiful graphics to the great story and especially the adrenaline-fueled mayhem of online multiplayer matches make this a must-have for the strategy game set and a serious purchase consideration even for those who never thought of themselves as strategy gamers. Pozdravlyayu i Uspekhov, Massive. Your game is yzumitelno!

All in all, World In Conflict offers an awesome amount of bang for your Buck (or Quid if you’re like myself, or perhaps you’ll be spending Euros or Australian Dollars), features plenty of Kablammo! Kicks an awful lot of ass, shows the strategy genre a slightly alternative route and offers hours of intense, cringe inducing (in a good way – only because you’re imagining that poor sod you just nerve gassed) entertainment, suitable for fans of all branches of strategy, and is a fantastic ambassador for bringing in those who wish to start playing strategy games!

Overall: World in Conflict is a solid game that might very well be the Counter-Strike of RTS games: long after the novelty of its innovative gameplay is worn off, and its beautiful graphics long since dated, it's played and respected as a pioneer.

Developer Massive Entertainment has been making real-time strategy games for almost a decade now, but World in Conflict is undoubtedly the studio's masterwork. Everything about this game is top-notch, from the addicting gameplay to the amazing visuals. More importantly, World in Conflict offers up a refreshingly new approach to strategy gaming. So if you're a strategy fan, you should definitely try World in Conflict. And even if you're turned off by standard real-time strategy games, you owe it to yourself to try out what Massive has come up with in this exquisite package.

Ultimately, where World in Conflict succeeds is in every aspect that truly matters in the final judgment of a game’s quality. It’s a fun, addictive, fast paced, and fresh take on a very stale genre. This is not only one of the PC’s best this year, it’s one of the best games in the genre, period; and we’re talking in the infinite sense. This will go down as an all-time classic among the likes of StarCraft, Total Annihilation, WarCraft, and Age of Empires. It’s simply an amazing game that shouldn’t be missed.

WIC excels in so many areas, it’s hard to fault. It’s one of the most attractive games we’ve ever seen, has a truly interesting storyline, offers plenty of variety considering it could have so easily been a one-trick pony, and redefines the expected feature-set of an online RTS. It smashes down the barriers that prevent many folks from enjoying strategy games, while at the same time offering the depth that the genre is renowned for. Whether you’re a strategy fan or not, you’d be silly not to take a look at WIC. Without doubt, one of the finest, freshest RTS games we’ve played in years.

This RTS taking place during a fictional World War III is an excellent playthrough with only minor irritations in the story to detract from its gorgeous visuals.

Before you groan and think ‘just another real time strategy’, we urge you to throw away what you already know. World in Conflict has everything in place to redefine what gamers perceive about the well worn genre. In World of Conflict there are no bases to build, installations to research, resources to gather or mine. The micromanagement that plagued titles like Earth 2160 are nonexistent and the graphics, whilst they may need a powerful PC to run at their best, are quite simply spectacular.

It’s not very often that a real-time strategy title comes along and changes the way you think about the genre. World in Conflict is one of those, not because all of the ideas are totally new, but because they’re all put together in such a successful way. This game is unlike most real-time war-games for its tactical nature and reliance on teamwork. Because of this, the multiplayer is one of the best experiences on the market. While the single player plays second fiddle to the multiplayer (at least in my mind), it also provides explosive and well-conceived missions that build up the ideas of team-play through the various objectives given and an exceptionally well-presented story. When all is said and done, 2007 is going to be an amazing year for strategy titles and World in Conflict will be there among the best of them.

The conclusion is short and simple: buy this game. Finish the great single player mode as soon as possible and enter the online battlefields, where you'll truly find out how challenging this game is and how much practise you'll need to become really good. You get off on graphics, single player experiences, online battles, ...? World in Conflict has it all!

It's a stunning achievement and one that puts it firmly at the head of RTS titles for the year. Can the forthcoming COH: Opposing Fronts topple it? That remains to be seen, but one thing's for sure. World In Conflict isn't going down without a fight. It's got nukes. And isn't afraid to use them.

Selbst der abgebrühteste Friedensapostel, wird in „World of Conflict“ seine kriegerische Seite entdecken. Zu packend ist einfach das Szenario, welches uns eine gänzlich andere Entwicklung im Jahre 1989 wiederspiegelt. Alternative Universen sind inzwischen auch bei Spielen eine immer beliebtere Variante und haben mit „World of Conflict“ jetzt die passende Krönung spendiert bekommen. Gleiches gilt für das Genre an sich. Es müsste schon mit dem Teufel zu gehen, wenn „World of Conflict“ noch vor StarCraft 2 von der Poleposition verdrängt werden würde.

Atomic Gamer
World in Conflict is one of the more enjoyable strategy games in recent memory. The multiplayer is fast and furious, and seems that it will lend itself well to casual gamers and hardcore, clan-based competitive types. And for those that only get PC games for the single player experience, the one here is still pretty damn fun, though it is just going to tempt you to take the game online anyways to see just what it has to offer. If you have played any of Massive's past RTSes, are a fan of the genre, or just want something new to play, give World in Conflict a shot. And hey, if you buy the collectors edition, you get a pretty rockin box and a piece of the Berlin Wall. I'm not kidding.

Der Echtzeitstrategiehit im Jahre 2007 wird auch zu meiner Überraschung aller Voraussicht nach nicht Command & Conquer: Tiberium Wars heißen, sondern World in Conflict. Was die Entwickler von Massive hier für eine Softwareperle abliefern ist schon mehr als erstaunlich, bei World in Conflict stimmt fast alles. Einzel- und Mehrspielerfans werden ebenso klasse unterhalten wie Actionfans und Taktikliebhaber. Wer auch nur ein wenig Interesse für RTS-Spiele zeigt, sollte WiC auf jeden Fall eine Chance geben. Technisch und spielerisch werdet ihr derzeit kein besseres Spiel im Genre finden, da muss sich wirklich selbst mein geliebtes C&C geschlagen geben.

GameSpot (Belgium/Netherlands)
World in Conflict is een meesterwerkje, van de verslavende gameplay tot de verbluffende graphics. Misschien nog sterker is de geslaagde keuze voor een heel nieuwe manier om een real-time strategiegame in single- en multiplayermode te beleven. Zeker proberen dus, zelfs als je geen strategiefan bent.

WiC is een huzarenstukje geworden. Zowel de gameplay als het grafische is grensverleggend en perfect afgewerkt. Nog nooit werd een oorlogsbeleving zo intens en realistisch op het scherm gebracht en je hoeft niet eens een doorwinterde bureaustrateeg te zijn om ervan te genieten.

GamingHeaven / DriverHeaven
Playing WiC it is sometimes hard to tell that the game was developer primarily as a multiplayer game. Sure enough the online modes and mechanics are amongst the best, and you’ll probably experience some of the best moments of gaming here. It is the singleplayer that really shines though. The very action paced campaign will give you almost no time to breathe, and even the few moments of respite you’ll get will probably be spent being angry, sad and happy with the on-screen characters. And it will be during these moments that you’ll realize that WiC is more than just a strategy game. After all, when was the last time you wanted to smack somebody up when playing Warcraft?

ActionTrip
World in Conflict deserves the attention of all gamers regardless of what their preferred genres are. There's enough action and content to guarantee hours of continuous fun, which stands for both single-player and multiplayer modes. The range of units and a vast number of air support that can be called in, makes for some exciting and well-balanced multiplayer battles. Also, it's easy to coordinate attacks with players via the built-in VOIP chat system. Even if you cannot enjoy this aspect of the game, playing without a headset is entertaining enough. Battles can last for hours, with a potential of reaching a climactic full-on nuclear blast (you can read more about the multiplayer aspect of the game in our aforementioned hands-on impressions). So, the game comes highly recommended, in spite of a few technical glitches, which aren't going to get in the way of a great RTS experience.

World in Conflict est-il l’opposé total de Supreme Commander. Difficile de voir deux jeux appartenant au même genre plus différent que ces deux là. SupCo est le jeu le plus bourrin au monde ; tout le contraire de WiC qui draine des mécanismes de jeu très tactiques. C’est exactement l’opposé quand on oppose les centaines d’unités que l’on dirige sur une carte de SupCo et la poignée d’unités micromanagées de WiC. Et c’est également l’opposé quand on sait que SupCo n’a pas plu à tout le monde à Eurogamer. WiC fait clairement l’unanimité.

Good Game
If you’ve played Company Of Heroes right through, you’ll know this one level where you have to hold 3 bridges, and then everything goes nuts and you have to pull out. WIC is like this all the way through. It’s hectic and fun I’ll give it a 9 as well. It’s good to see something that claims to be a different type of RTS, and actually is.

TTGamer
There is really very little reason why any PC gamer shouldn't give World in Conflict a go because it is just so accessible and appealing. You don't have to be an RTS nut to enjoy this game, but on the other hand you don't not have to be one either. The single player campaign mode is a little bit of a disappointment and probably won't offer much more than a 'once and done' experience, but thankfully the game's awesome multiplayer, which has got to be the most well balanced and enjoyable multiplayer I've experienced in an RTS for a long time, comes to the rescue and really sets this game apart. This is a must have title for PC fans who want plenty of action and minimal fuss, and the likelihood many game design decisions were shaped by the fact a 360 release is also pending doesn't detract from the appeal at all. Titles like World in Conflict are really making PC gaming look great right now.

"World in Conflict" é uma das gratas surpresas de 2007. Abre espaço para um novo jeito de jogar games de estratégia em tempo real e merece uma chance mesmo daqueles que "se cansaram" do gênero. Indo além, é a prova de que é possível inovar mesmo em um estilo de jogo amplamente explorado. Dos gráficos à trilha sonora, passando pelo foco na ação, mas sem perder a porção tática, "World in Conflict" é um título para gente grande.

Taking the fight online yields another fresh RTS experience. Players team up to take on armor, air, support, and infantry roles, each with special units that uniquely contribute to an overall match. We dug using helicopters to rain down guided missiles of justice, but found the support role not as useful as the other offensive classes. Online niggles aside, World in Conflict is one of the most accessible and action-packed strategy games we’ve ever played.

World in Conflict löst Battlefield 2 ab, meinen bisherigen Favoriten für mehr als zehn Spieler. Ganz andere Kategorie? Schon, dennoch ist das Strategiespiel genauso faszinierend und spannend und nicht zuletzt immer wieder für eine schnelle Partie zwischendurch gut – und spielt grafisch eine Liga höher. Sie befürchten wenig Tiefgang? Wer das Spiel meistern will, braucht auf jeden Fall strategisches Gespür, gutes Reaktionsvermögen und Köpfchen. Fallschirmjäger spionieren hinter feindlichen Linien, Helikopterkommandanten werfen Jeeps für Reparaturen ab oder ziehen im Verbund mit der Luftabwehr los ... Wir werden den Titel natürlich noch intensiv im Internet spielen, sobald die Server online sind. Ich bin allerdings mehr als zuversichtlich, dass wir unsere Wertung dann bestätigen können.

AceGamez
Perhaps the only real problem with World in Conflict is that it isn't a game that does anything particularly new, or at least nothing groundbreaking. The action might be more adrenaline-inducing and the pace ramped up to such a degree that half hour battles fly by in what seem like ten minutes, but at the end of it all it's still a strategy game that follows the usual formula of its entire ilk and not too dissimilar in style to its ancient cousin, Ground Control. But that's just fine, because World in Conflict isn't about revolutionising the genre - what it does do is reinvigorate it. Combining its fast paced almost action game style single player campaign with a multiplayer component that does actually manage to be sufficiently different from the norm, what you have isn't just a damn good strategy game, but one of the best strategy games of the year.

Pro-G
So the sheer fun of the multiplayer warrants an extra review point. The game is a must buy for RTS fans. Experts will tear through the campaign quickly enough, but it's just the starter, whetting the palette for the main course, a hugely engaging multiplayer extravaganza. World In Conflict is brilliant RTS fun for experts and newcomers alike.

Games Radar
Not happy with the finest and most inventive RTS multiplayer experience around, Massive have also added 14 levels of cinematic, action-packed mayhem, complete with a slightly silly premise made believable through some well-drawn characters and intimate cut-scenes, and wrapped the whole lot in the lushest and most drool-worthy RTS engine we've ever seen. It's a stunning achievement and one that puts it firmly at the head of RTS titles for the year.

Gameslave UK
World in Conflict is a beautiful and well made strategy title that strays from the norm and for the most part pulls it off, it has a compelling story line that's conveyed well by some great voice acting and music choices. There are tonnes of multiplayer options and maps to keep you and your friends going for a while. Finally, it's easy to play but hard to master and that's the sign of a good game in my book. As to whether it's the best RTS game ever? Probably not, but it is deserving of some of any strategy gaming fan's cash.

Action packed, adrenalised and undeniably spectacular, World in Conflict is the first RTS to give Company of Heroes a run for its money, and the current front-runner for RTS game of the year.

TotalVideoGames (TVG)
It's the immediacy of World in Conflict that drives it beyond anything else in the genre. The constantly fast pace, the race to accumulate Tactical Aid points, the relentless explosions and surges make for one of the most exhilarating experiences you'll have from a strategy title. On so many counts Massive Entertainment have delivered on the "easy to learn, difficult to master" mantra, a strategy game that can be enjoyed by anybody.

I love World in Conflict, love it to bits, but something about it makes me hold back from giving it the golden seal of praise which is 10/10. To use Tim’s words, “if we marked out of 20, I’d give it 19/20” – a statement which belies the fact that although World in Conflict comes close to RTS perfection, it still falls short by the smallest of slithers. It’s an awesome game and you should definitely go out and buy it right now, but the sad fact is that here at bit-tech we mark out of 10, so we have to give it...

So don't come to World in Conflict looking for a game that reinvents its genre. Come to it because it's an instantly appealing refinement of smart ideas, served up with gorgeous production values and back-to-basics strategic muscle. It's intelligently structured, so you can lose yourself for hours or indulge in a quick twenty minute skirmish, while the multiplayer mode is an absolute monster if you're willing to submit to its co-operative style. The ability to unleash monitor-rattling nuclear destruction at will is what will inevitably garner the most attention, but thankfully World in Conflict has the steak to go with the sizzle. Combining bite-sized accessibility and formidable depth in a genre as established as real-time strategy is no mean feat, but Massive has pulled it off. An absolute beast of a game.

GameStar (Germany)
Es ist lange her, dass ich von einem Strategiespiel so gefesselt war. Massive hat eine Kampagne entworfen, die in Sachen Geschichtenerzählen und Charakterentwicklung jedes aktuelle Strategiespiel deklassiert. Überhaupt merkt man, wie viel Liebe und Hirn in World of Conflict steckt - sei es bei der hervorragenden Bedienung, den intelligenten Funktionen oder dem durchdachten Missionsdesign. Schade nur, dass der ganze Spaß, die Dramatik und Action nach zwölf Stunden vorbei sind. Macht aber nix, dann werfe ich mich halt in die großartigen Mehrspieler-Gefechte.

Kaiken kaikkiaan World in Conflict on genrensä ehdotonta eliittiä. Sujuva pelattavuus, hienot grafiikat ja äänet sekä mukaansatempaava välianimaatioilla ja kuvilla ryyditetty tarina pitävät tunnelman korkealla. Jos et ikinä ole pelannut tosiaikaista strategiaa josta pidit, WiC tuskin on sinun pelisi sekään, ei se nimittäin mitään hirveän hienoa ja uutta genreen tuo. Jopa kaltaiseni pelityyppiin kyllästynyt kyynikko sai kuitenkin näin hyvästä toteutuksesta hyvän määrän iloa irti, joten uskallan väittää, että niin saa kuka tahansa muukin jota tämän kaltaiset pelit edes vähän kiinnostavat.

Gaming Target
World in Conflict's single-player campaign has plenty of polish, but it won't tax most players' tactical abilities or attention spans: its fourteen missions can be completed in well under an hour each. And its simple hit point system for all vehicles pales in comparison to complex ballistic and armor modeling setups in other recent strategy games. On the other hand, its multiplayer system offers fast-paced strategic action balanced for rich team play. Get the game, find a good server (or group of friends) and have at it. Use the single-player campaign as an extended tutorial for on-line play.

World in Conflict — не Command & Conquer 3, которую стоит пройти ради видеороликов и внутренней энциклопедии. Динамичная, доступная, красивая, с превосходным мультиплеером, она кажется глотком свежего воздуха среди сиквелов и аддонов. Впечатление обманчиво — настоящей революцией была Ground Control, WiC просто развивает ее характерные черты. Но это не делает ее хуже.

World in Conflict überzeugt in Sachen Grafik und schnellem Gameplay. Actionreiche Einsätze, in denen es an jeder Ecke brennt, stehen dabei an der Tagesordnung und fordern vom Spieler einiges an Koordinationsvermögen ab. Die Geschichte wirkt klischeehaft und typisch Schwarz-Weiß gemalt. Was zudem noch schade ist, ist die Tatsache, dass man nur auf Seiten der USA und NATO spielen darf, anscheinend lässt sich Massive Entertainment noch Luft für Erweiterungen mit einer zusätzlichen Sowjetkampagne und eventuellen neuen Fraktionen - wer weiß. Die vorhandenen Parteien spielen sich nämlich leider viel zu ähnlich. Strategen kommen dennoch auf ihre Kosten, da das Truppenmanagement durch das Punktesystem sich gut vom normalen Basisbau-Standard abhebt.

Neue Helden braucht das Land. Das Spiel hat die Qualität zum ganz großen Erfolg. Ob es sich eine unangreifbare Spitzenposition unter den Strategiespielern erkämpft - darüber müssen nun die Fans mit ihren flinken Mausfingern abstimmen. Die Hintergrundgeschichte des Einzelspieler-Feldzugs ist packend und dramatisch inszeniert, Sie werden förmlich mitfiebern. Die Präsentation setzt unter Strategiespielern Maßstäbe. Stufenlos können Sie jedes Detail auf dem Schlachtfeld heranzoomen, Explosionen sind dem Knallfroschformat entwachen und die Spielumgebung verhält sich weitgehend physikalisch korrekt.

AusGamers
All in all, World in Conflict is a worthy purchase for any real-time strategy fan or any team-based shooter regular that wants to try something different. The singleplayer, while well fleshed out, is ultimately forgettable, but the work invested in the multiplayer platform provides the potential for countless hours of real gaming entertainment here anyway. It's certain to please most visual-quality nuts and those nukes look spectacular no matter how you configure your graphic settings.

Eigentlich habe ich ja fast die Lust an der Echtzeit-Strategie verloren. Zu ausgenudelt und seelenlos die Szenarien, zu gleichförmig der Spielablauf. Krönung: Supreme Commander, das auf mich wie frisch vom Fließband wirkt. Aber das alles ist vergessen: World in Conflict hat mir die Freude am Taktieren wiedergegeben. Kein schnarchiger Aufbaupart stört den Spielfluss, ständig passiert etwas, ändern sich hier Missionsziele, muss ich dort umdenken. Und das Szenario ist weltklasse! Schlüsselszene: Ich muss eine Atombombe über einer Siedlung in den USA(!) abwerfen und zögere, der Kommandant bellt ins Mikro: "Wirf sie ab, wirf sie endlich ab..." Warum keine 90? Weil die Wegfindung manchmal nervt, weil's manchmal etwas unübersichtlich ist. Vielleicht mach der Mehrspielermodus das wett.

World In Conflict s'impose comme l'un des STR les plus réussis du moment. Superbement réalisé, accessible et cependant très riche, le titre de Massive Entertainment parviendra sans peine à conquérir le coeur des amateurs du genre, tout comme celui des nouveaux venus. Tout juste pourra-t-on regretter la relative brièveté de la campagne solo ainsi que le manque de véritables innovations. Un défaut largement compensé par une jouabilité aux petits oignons et un multijoueur passionnant, pour peu que l'on s'y investisse et que l'on parvienne à surmonter l'affront des inévitables premières déculottées.

Let us get this straight; multiplayer will never excuse a short single player experience, no matter how exciting those short hours are. It is especially insulting when the game is just so well balanced, so well designed and so fun to play. This attitude cost this review a full point on our 10 point scale. The game is still good, but being what it is kept it from greatness. All I can do is hope the modding community fills in the story because I really wanted to finish this war and punish those dirty Soviets for invading the US in the first place, not end it with the Russians and Chinese running away from Seattle as the USSR still peddles around in Europe. Still, World in Conflict should offer up an example of a different breed of RTS that other companies should take note of and try in their own, unique ways. The concept and execution was plenty good to warrant copy-cats.

Bagi Anda yang mengagungkan sebuah RTS yang mengedepankan unsur manajemen mikro seperti Command & Conquer 3, atau RTS yang mengedepankan kecepatan mengeklik mouse seperti Warcraft, boleh jadi Anda kecewa sama apa yang disampaikan World in Conflict. Tapi kalo boleh saya sarankan, coba Anda set tingkat kesulitan ke hard dan rasakan gimana asiknya berstrategi di game ini. Kelemahan di game ini sih sejauh kami mencoba cuma satu, AI tidak cukup pandai untuk memanfaatkan unit-unit yang dimilikinya. Mereka seakan terbiasa untuk jalan lurus ke baris depan, tanpa memikirkan untuk mencoba mengepung lawan dan menyerang bersama-sama, ataupun memanfaatkan lingkungan sebagai pelindung.

In spite of its problems, World in Conflict undoubtedly has that ineffable "it" that makes an enjoyable game. In a market glutted with RTS games that are little more than reskins of each other, Massive deserves credit for trying something genuinely new. Sure, it's risky to rock the boat, but that's what capitalism's all about -- you don't see North Korea coming up with new RTS ideas, do you?

World in Conflict is a gorgeous game that can be as rewarding as it is demanding. If you're playing it alone, you're not going to get a lot out of it beyond pretty graphics. But with other players, and especially with other players who understand a) how it works and b) that they have to work together, this is a unique and gratifying real time strategy game you won't want to miss.

World in Conflict est un bon jeu. Il ajoute ce qui manquait à Ground Control : un univers un peu plus parlant. Accessible sans être simpliste, beau et bien fini, c'est un STR plaisant à jouer. Il est dommage que la campagne solo soit bien trop courte. En multi, WiC privilégie les parties rapides et les petites escarmouches plutôt que la stratégie à grande échelle. On s'amuse beaucoup mais cela risque de rebuter les amateurs du genre à la recherche de quelque chose de plus poussé.

Overall, World in Conflict is not bad, but if you've been keeping up to with other RTS titles, it will not come across as much other than a well-written single-player experience. But for folks who have not jumped on Company of Heroes – and if you haven't, what's wrong with you? - World in Conflict is a perfectly viable game. It's not bad – it's just not particularly good, either. At the end of the day, World in Conflict would have made a better movie.
