“This War of Mine is a gripping survival sim, and a great study of survival during wartime and civil collapse.” - 8.4 – IGN UK
“This War of Mine shows the horrors of war in a way, that we rarely can experience in a game.” - 9 – Giga Games
“Is this a game you want to play? No. Is it a game anyone with a beating heart should play? Yes. A million times yes. It's a longform exercise in empathy, a sobering piece of work that fills in the blanks left when all we see of war are the headshots. It's a much-needed course correct in the current shoot-first-ask-questions-never gaming landscape that supposes war is won because one supreme badguy caught a bullet through his brainstem. No: It's won when the people who lived under his boot get to go home.” - 8 – Gamespot
In This War Of Mine you do not play as an elite soldier, rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city; struggling with lack of food, medicine and constant danger from snipers and hostile scavengers. The game provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle.
The pace of This War of Mine is imposed by the day and night cycle. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout: crafting, trading and taking care of your survivors. At night, take one of your civilians on a mission to scavenge through a set of unique locations for items that will help you stay alive.
Make life-and-death decisions driven by your conscience. Try to protect everybody from your shelter or sacrifice some of them for longer-term survival. During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival. The sooner you realize that, the better.

The atmosphere of this game is very beautiful, and with the use of a dark and colorful environment, made to create a dead and airy atmosphere war for players. In fact, The game environment is full of details and looks great for an independent game. Game sounding is also acceptable, conversations are displayed above the top of each character, but they do not speak. The music played back in the background matches the game environment and helps to understand the tragic atmosphere of the game. It's interesting to know that the game does not follow a particular story process and its purpose is just and only to survive. If a member of a group is killed for any reason, then he will not be able to return to the game and you will lose him forever. This War of Mine gives the player the experience of the difficulty of the war. Of course not in the front line, but in the ruins of the city as a typical citizen.
This War of Mine gives the player the experience of the difficulty of the war. Of course not in the front line, but in the ruins of the city as a typical citizen which I saw in fewer games. It's interesting to know that the game does not follow a particular story process and its purpose is just and only to survive. If a member of a group is killed for any reason, then he will not be able to return to the game and you will lose him forever. Unless you start the game from the beginning! However, sometimes people are found to join your group and fill out the rest of the members. The game will continue to the extent that all of the group's members will be eliminated, depending on how long you can keep members alive, and how you manage it. Definitely, this game can be called one of the best titles that has been released in its genre.
This War of Mine is an ideal game which shows the faces of wars from the side of ordinary people. It is incredible that the game is capable of playing on our emotions. This is a completely different experience than if you were playing Battlefield or other Call of Duty, in which a player is a machine for killing and no-one cares that we just shattered the head of a friend just because he wore another uniform. Here is completely opposite. It is an absolute gem!
This game brought out more feelings in a few minutes than most games do through an entire playthrough. I have never wanted a virtual human to live or die more in any other game. You are not soldiers. You are civilians caught in the worst possible circumstances. Will you kill and steal from innocents to survive? Will you give to those in need if it means you have to suffer? Will you help people in distress even if it means you may get injured or die? Your morality will be tested like in no other game. The soundtrack is brilliant and adds so much more to the already grim atmosphere. There are not enough words to describe the rush you feel listening to this music while saving a life. My only complaint is that I didn't pick up this game sooner. The rollercoaster of emotions evoked from this masterpiece make this game one not to miss.
This game first caught my attention as it was being played by one of my most favorite youtubers and after I saw a couple minutes of gameplay I instantly got the game and started playing like there's no tomorrow playing around 9 hours a day and when you move forward in the game you start getting emotionally attached to the character you're playing with and it teaches you to always plan for everything and always be ready. this game really gets to you sometimes you have to make the decision to either help others and put yourself in a bad situation or just be selfish sometimes you have the opportunity to steal from others causing them to probably starve to death because of you. you actually feel the consciousnesses of your actions. If you haven't gotten to play this game I recommend it to you because it's just a great game.
