So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

What do these ratings mean?

"In classic techno-thriller manner, a group of super-villains have concocted a devious world-threatening scheme which the player must foil. At the start of the game we find ourselves on the eve of the U.S. Presidential elections when simultaneous terrorist attacks hit both candidates. Clues point to corrupt elements within the U.S. military and on to the Consortium, and as the story unfolds with one incredible plot-twist after the other, we slowly lose any connection to the real world -- as in the best examples of the techno-thriller genre." - GR

This Game Revolution summery barely puts a dent in the actuality of Act of War: High Treason. High Treason picks up about a year after its prequel Act of War: Direct Action, and furthers the plot. We begin with an apparent hostage situation in progress involving a U.S. Senator. Sergeant Major Jefferson is back with his men to try and end the situation. We later find that the CIA is taking the senator into custody for unknown reasons. This story hits so many plot twists and corrupt military officials you’re left begging for more at the end of the game. This game has a minor obstacle, you can purchase the mod version or the full game.


The game developers have added quite a bit more humor for our voice actors and videos, the prime example being the Game Completion video. During a few missions in the single player campaign the A.I. becomes relentless and uses every strategy it can think of to win. Developers continue to amaze the player with high quality graphics and top-of-the-line voice acting. New units further expand the game by creating more in-depth strategies and war moves. Many people may say “This is just a supped up C&C Generals”. Well, they are wrong. This game has more difficulty in that nothing is too highly overpowered or unbalanced. Whilst the game adds a navy (Playable in the Navy Invaders Mod against AI, or online against humans) they balance the naval forces out with new helicopters, tanks, and other military hardware. This game is top-notch and is a worthy buy. Great on slow computers, almost any gamer can feel this game in its fullest. Although the camera zoom function lacks a lot of features, the cut scenes in-game and prior to mission beginnings are great.

A+ all the way folks. Great buy.
