Sure, it looks pretty. But it's just another RTS made for those hyperactive ratmasters. I don't mind real time, as long as the scale is manageable and small enough to be interesting, or that the scale is large enough and the units aren't complete dumbasses (like SupCom).
This seems to do all the same mistakes that I've seen over and over. Infantry stand in open ground when they are shot at. They should at least git tha **** out and seek cover, instead of relying on the grass to protect them. GRASS!
Special abilities that need to used by me. ME! The commander of the frigging platoon!"This command to corporal Jack. You now have permission to run for cover"
"Thank god. We wouldn't have made it in time with our present speed."
"This is command to lieutenant Bill. Deploy your anti armor missiles against enemy tanks."
"About time command, they've been shooting us for ten minutes already!"
And stupid life bars on tanks. Were they needed in Faces of War? Hell no!
, this does nothing better than FoW. No, that's not right. I enjoy watching A-10 strafe tanks...
But other than that, the Russians win this one with FoW. Again.
If WiC would at least allow issuing orders during pause, I wouldn't be whining at all.
