Future Wars


Game Summary

Once upon a time strategy games actually were easy to get into and fun to play for everyone. An intuitive and clear set of rules and an appealing story line helped titles such as "Advance Wars", "Battle Isle" or "Military Madness" to acquire a legendary reputation amongst all gamers. Over the course of the last decade turn based strategy games on PC have turned into complex monsters through the bigger-better-more philosophy, causing strategy titles to become more and more a niche phenomenon for a very hardcore audience. Future Wars – developed by one of the leading German studios and the creators of Drakensang – takes turn based strategy gaming away from the micromanagement overkill, reopening it for a wider audience. 

A modern 3D engine, the proven rock-paper-scissors principle surrounded by an enthralling plot and challenging gameplay create an easy to grasp but hard to master strategy game experience on PC which was until know only known to the console gamers, opening the game for newcomers while appealing to the hardcore gamer just the same.

Review This Game


This is a poor game that tried to be advanced wars but failed. there's really not much else to say other than that. I struggle t...o find redeeming qualities but there isn't any. 2/5 because it's not the worst game of all time.


This game is an attempt at cloning Advance Wars, only it isn't very good. The characters and story are below average. Gameplay-w...ise, it's fine, but that's because it copies Advance Wars, which was a good game. The controls work fine and the graphics are okay, but this is a very basic game that doesn't have any innovation. There's no naval combat, which is weird considering there's lots of water in the game and that could have added some more depth to this already shallow title. It's not a very long game, which is a good thing in this case, since you won't want to play it much anyway. There are many far better strategy games out there to choose from. This one should not be on your radar.


Future Wars competently mimics the basic mechanics of Advance Wars, but with none of its charm or entertaining characters and of its clever level design. Worth playing if you're absolutely desperate for an Advance Wars-style strategy game on the PC, but don't expect much.
