"I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones." - Albert Einstein
2011 - 2014 The world enjoys an unprecedented era of peace as enhanced defence technology eliminates the threat of nuclear war. But can it last?
2020 Constant depletion of resources has international tensions at a breaking point. One spark will ignite what no one thought could happen...a third and final world war.
Introducing Tom Clancy's EndWar, the first new Clancy I.P. since the highly acclaimed Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell launched in 2002. EndWar will bring World War III to life in a way only Clancy can.
Strategy for the next generation: Led by creative director Michael de Plater (Rome Total War), EndWar will redefine strategy gaming. Designed exclusively for next-gen consoles EndWar will create a theatre of war, immersing you in the drama of World War III in a way you never thought possible.
Fight For Your Nation: Pick a side US, Europe, Russia - the fate of the world is in your hands. If you don't step in to save your homeland, who will?
Command Your Army: Grow your army into the most powerful force on the planet. Your army is completely customizable, and experience breeds strength - your units grow more powerful with every campaign you fight.
Light Up The City of Lights: Tom Clancy's World War III won't be won by capturing remote deserts or grasslands but by striking countries in the heart. Paris, Moscow, Washington D.C. will all erupt in flames as you battle your way through the fully destructive playground.
A Whole New Kind of Massive: EndWar will be an online multiplayer experience unlike anything you've ever encountered. 16 player matchups? Try hundreds. 30 minute battles? Try persistent matchups lasting for months at a time. This isn't a skirmish, it's World War III.
Talk Your Way to Victory: Put the controller aside and start shouting commands. EndWar can be played almost entirely via voice command.

EndWar is a crippled strategy game. The camera is locked to units and so close as to actually cause problems, multiplayer has been disabled, the AI is pathetic, and super weapons can be devastating to the point of being overpowered. The maps are so small, and the units so slow (and you have access to so few of them at a time), that I've actually lost over half my army to an enemy super weapon.
These are only the problems you'll encounter if you can get the game working, however. The version of EndWar sold by GMG contains a version of the DRM service Tages that was designed for older OS. In order to play EndWar on a modern system, you'll have to update Tages yourself.
So, if you can get past everything listed above, your left with single player and the ability to control your units with your voice. While highly inefficient compared to mouse + keyboard control, voice control (when it works) is a definite amusement, and is definitely worth toying with for anyone who has a speech impediment (like myself). If you have no interest in voice control, nothing else about this game is worth your time. There are too many better strategy games.

Like a future World War where you can control various regions of the world battling it out.
Controls various factors of your team/command. If you can get 16 player games it can became pretty fun.
You know the usual from Tom Clancy games.
