The highly anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed game Act of War: Direct Action picks up where the techno-thriller left off. On the eve of the U.S. Presidential elections, simultaneous terrorist attacks hit both candidates. Clues point to corrupt elements within the U.S. military, but also to the shadowy organization known as the Consortium. You take on the role of U.S. Army Brigadier General Jason Richter, a career soldier and former commander of the 1st Special Forces (Delta Force) who has been given control of an elite new anti-terrorist unit: Task Force TALON. From massive enemy assaults to delicate hostage extractions, from classified spy missions to search-and-destroy onslaughts, Task Force TALON is deployed to engage the enemy in hotspots around the globe. Using near-future weaponry, Richter's men will be pushed to their mental and physical limits to contain a powerful unpredictable enemy bent on toppling the governments of the world.

Act of War: Direct Action was an extremely underrated game, and one that was overshadowed by larger games being released. But it was a solid and fun experience. And High Treason is no different. While maybe a fraction behind the original (as many sequels are), it continues the exciting and fast gameplay of Direct Action. I love the focus on semi-realism and the real-world type scenarios that could have been ripped from the headlines in some ways. It is still a blast to play today, and in my mind, was better than many more well-known RTS titles that have come out since then. Highly recommended if you like the RTS genre. The graphics aren't next gen or anything (considering how old they are), but they are certainly good enough, even today. I wouldn't hesitate to jump in, especially for the price.
This is quite a good Real Time Strategy game. The graphics are good and even though this game is old, they have aged nicely and fit well. The music is good too. The gameplay is simple and addicting. Fights can get huge and detailed. You can build your own base to attack, and this game has naval units as well. Game features single player as well as multiplayer. There are no bugs and it runs smoothly. Overall, a great game that has held up well, 8/10.
