Great Big War Game (Version: 1.4.1)

Reviewed by Matthew Chan on Feb 7th 2013


Quick Rating: 9 out of 10

What is it?
► This is a fun 3D turn based strategy game with bizarre humor campaign mode. On top of that, there are also a skirmish and online asynchronous multiplayer modes.

Pro:
► Wide variety of missions in campaign mode: resource management, assassination, invasion, evacuation, etc. Between the missions, there are also cut scenes fill with bizarre humor.
► Great number of distinctive units for you to command: grunt, sniper, bazooka, engineer, scout, grenadier, commando, technician, jeep, recon tank, supply truck, anti air, battle tank, tank killer, scout boat, ferry, destroyer, aegis, cruiser, fleet oiler, etc. You can also airborne and seaborne units.
► Unique cute 3D models and funny looking terrain gives you refreshing gaming experience
► Add a new gaming dimension with “Fog of War”, which is a welcome addition to its prequel Great Little War Game
► Excellent replay value with skirmish, pass-and-play multiplayer and cross-platform online asynchronous multiplayer modes

Con:
► Without an accurate action point system, it is very difficult to plan a multiple turns tactic. If the developer add an action point system, this game could be one of the best hard core turn based strategy game in the Appstore.

In-App Ad:
► None
