Future Wars isn't that impressive. It's fairly minimalistic, the graphics are dated and hideous in some parts, and the design choices are fairly uninspired. That said, it plays well enough, and it's a decently fun distraction. If you want a great turn-based strategy game, look elsewhere. But if you want an intro to the genre, or a cheap game that most systems can run, it's good.

This is the one of old school game like it was Battle Isle or History Line. It's turn based strategy with very simpatic graphic and very good gameplay. On the beginning this game could be boring to you, but after couple of levels it will start to be highly addictive.
Quite addictive :)DanielZo0 | June 12, 2013 | See all DanielZo0's reviews »
Old-school round-based strategy game with well balanced game-mechanics. Don't mind the little bit ugly looks af the game. I know many better looking games that are much less fun than this one. I loved playing it - up to one of the later missions where I just can't beat the opponent

For what could have been a fairly original title, I found Future Wars to be a little lacking in polish when it came to the enemy AI, which often walked right into the traps I had set up, or thought 20 moves ahead and cooked my goose, even on the earlier levels. Even with that, though, I still like Future Wars. The story in the campaign is at times so wacky it's funny, and the units are well-detailed, along with the various maps you'll be fighting on. The activities you'll be doing are quite varied, and don't totally revolve around battle after battle. Overall, I recommend this title, but prepare yourself for a sometimes quirky AI. The story is worth it, though.

...you like the high rated "Advanced War" on the Nintendo DS (or similar games). This is an highly tactical, but simple in control wargame. It is very easy to learn (it has a long but entertaining tutorial) but it grows into a very strategic game later. This game is turn-bases and thats good for several reasons. You will think a lot about what to do next. Not because it isn't obvious what you "could" do, but because every move can be the one who makes, or crushes the day for your army. In the beginning it is enough to build units that overpower your enemys units in a rock-paper-scissors manner. But later you need a lot of understanding about how the battlefield serves you in the right way. You will surely have to start some missions again and again. I personally think it is very hard in the later levels. Don't get me wrong, it is a very fun game, but it can be very frustrating in times. The graphics don't look good today and the sound is a 3 of 6, but thats not the point in this game. If you like turn-based-strategy-games, give it a try. You can get hours and hours of gameplay out of it if you are into this kind of games.
