Real Time Strategy with the Weapons of Today's Military!

Based on the Official Joint Chiefs of Staff training game developed for the US Military!

Terrorists are threatening the free world - and the only power capable of stopping them is the US Military.

The outcome is uncertain, but, as history has shown, leadership matters. You control the balance of power. Choose your side, marshal your forces and make real war upon your enemy.

Real War is the only Real-Time Strategy game where you are in command of today's military - with a few special items right off the Pentagon's drawing boards.

Special Operation CenterThe Story:

After unknown terrorists attack a foreign USA base, the United States of America launches a missile strike against the terrorist compound. When the USA missile attack sets off a nuclear weapon hidden within the base, the terrorists accuse the USA of launching nuclear weapons.

After word of the USA attack spreads, many nations in the eastern hemisphere begin to believe that the USA has become too powerful and has turned into a power hungry nation. These nations join forces to create the Independent Liberation Army (ILA) and devise a plan to rid the eastern hemisphere of US military influence.

In Real War - Based on the Official Joint Chiefs of Staff Training Game, you will:

Engage in 24 Missions: 12 as the US Military and 12 as the terrorist Independent Liberation Army - win as either side.

Control more than 60 Military units, all of which become tougher and faster with experience.

Air Command Center Deploy special units including spy satellites, propaganda planes, stealth bombers and electronic jammer planes.

Encounter Military AI as used in the official training game.

Build and protect supply lines to bring in resources - no artificial resource gathering.

Utilize special forces on terrain where no other units can go.

Employ anti-personnel measures from mines to nuclear missiles to bio chemical weapons.

Fight online against up to 3 other commanders over the Internet or LAN.

Game Developer's Connection by Foyleman

"I was very happy to be able to play this game right out of the box. So many games these days are shipped with bugs. I end up having to download a patch before getting to play a game that I just purchased. Not with this game. Although I was able to find one bug in the game, I can't be sure if it was caused by my computer or not. The game crashed once and I could never re-create the error.

Anti-Submarine Helicopter"The graphics on this game are rich and full. I would say that is the best part about this game. Opening cut scenes are beautiful and the graphics carry over into the gameplay too.
