For hard core strategy fans

Theatre of War 3: Korea brings a very realistic RAS strategy war game to the table. Sight lines on tanks are long, one or two mortar shots can completely destroy an infantry squad, and tanks have a dynamic damage system where they can get hit in certain areas and it will effect their performance on the battlefield, this is just a couple of things you'll find in the game. One thing to mention that I really respect the developer for doing is making a game about the Korean War; we don't see many games (or any) about the Korean War and I respect the developer for touching on a war that for some reason no one else has tried to do. However, the game is not without some problems. The whole UI is very awkward, it took me a while to find out how to make a unit simply turn. The Ai can seem very wierd at times too, sometimes they move without any orders given, and their pathfinding is really bad, this can be problematic considering the maps are very mountainous, if you tell you unit to go around a mountain they'll simply go up it. There's also some problems like the game crashing after I load a save game, and completely killing everyone on the map and the mission doesn't end. All in all Theatre of War 3: Korea is a good game, but some people may be pushed away by some of the problems it has.

I don't know why not more popular?

What Theatre of War did well and Theatre of War 2 polished, Theatre of War does even better and improves even more. And guess what, people don't love this game as much as they love the earlier games. I don't really know why, probably because it moves away from the oh-so-popular World War 2 setting and exchanges it for the less popular Korean war? Maybe because missions get slightly monotoneous after a while? Maybe because expectations grow faster than the series developes? I don't really know because I found this game at least as good as the previous ones, and appreciated the fact it overs one of the least popular conflicts - the Korean war. This very fact alone is a good enough reason to get this game and give her some of your time.

Great killer apparatus costume

michalmichal | Oct. 1, 2013 | See all michalmichal's reviews »

Now this is an awesome new skin for the assassin! Full of good old steampunk (or maybe even clockworkpunk) feel to it, makes the assassin look even better - just as if he didn't look good enough. With many gears on his arms and torso, pickelhaube-inspired helmet, and retro goggles, the assassin looks like a sophisticated mysterious apparatus created only to destroy and kill. I may be biased, being a huge fan of all these retro cyberpunk derivatives, but this costume looks really amazing. If you are into expanding your Borderlands 2 game with additional alternate outfits for your characters, this one would be a must-have if you think like me.

Could of been better

ker0ppi | Sept. 30, 2013 | See all ker0ppi's reviews »

This game has is good because of the many small details they put into the campaign and battles. The combat itself it smooth, but still can be buggy. The UI is complex and there isn't much help with understanding it. At times this game can be exciting, at other time it can be annoying cause of the bugs. I feel that this game could of been a lot more better if the developers fixed a lot of the small stuffs. Overall this game is great, but could use more help still.

A good strategic

Cavalieroscuro | Sept. 30, 2013 | See all Cavalieroscuro's reviews »

Theatre of War 3: Korea is the new chapter of the Theatre of War franchise, adding a new campaign based on Korea war facts. The interesting thing of this chapter is that campaign will modify randomly during your play, so each campagin will not be the same. The what if generator is interesting too, so the solo replay valuse of this chapter is very high. Graphic is good enough, so the soundtrack.
