Topic: Realistic War Game: U.S. Military Tournament


Hello-

I'm the official rep for the Military Tournament between ALL of the Divisions for the upcoming computer game "Act of War." We wanted to create a fun exclusive tournament for Military personnel only and this is it. If you know someone who might be interested please send this to them.

This is the game that was created by Retired US Air Force officer and novelist Dale Brown, and is getting rave reviews as one of the most amazing and groundbreaking military games ever made.

The graphics are incredible, the game play is outstanding, and best of all, the game uses real military strategies. The interaction between your ground troops and air forces is key, but the best gamers are the ones who can adapt to whatever situation they face just like reality. There are real weapons used in the game and even future technologies that are still being developed! There is also over an hour of REAL 35mm film that is integrated into the game. If you haven't heard of Act of War before you can check out the beautiful screenshots, read about all of the features and reviews, and even download and PLAY THE FREE DEMO here:

After checking that out, or if you've already seen the game, you'll surely be interested in signing up for our FREE Tournament. We want to create a huge tourney between all of the military divisions, which should create a lot of fun for all, and major bragging rights for some, but we can't do this without your help. If you are interested in this free tournament for Act of War, and you are in the military, you need to sign the petition in order to make it happen:

Well, there's one big difference. Dale Brown didn't help make Real War. I haven't played Real War but I'm sure the realism on Act of War is much better. Act of War might have some features that are similar to Real War and/or Command and Conquer, but the reviews are that it's far superior across the board.

Has anyone played the demo yet? You might want to check out this site for some good info and interesting pics:

Yeah? Well Real War wasn't made with Gunny
I'm downloading the demo now.
I just hope the weapon performances are realistic. The thing that turned me off about C&C was that the weapons were given real names, but their performances were bullcrap.

C&C is a good game but they just went totally wrong with the story line.

Let me know how you like the demo...

I know a handful of people complained about the same thing you did in regards to the C&C weapons, so I heard Act of War made it a point to make the weapon performances more realistic.

For what it's worth...everyone I've talked to enjoys AoW a lot more than C&C.

If you're not familiar with the story line behind Act of War, you might want to check out this Q&A Overview of the game with Atari's senior producer.

Another good Q&A is with the creative mind behind the game, Retired US Air Force officer and best-selling author Dale Brown.

Im not saying that Act of War is a bad game. I think its a great game and when it comes out on March 11th Im getting it. I would still have to say that C&C is a great line of games.

I see what you mean. I got a lot of entertainment out of C&C too. It's just that I don't expect to play it ever again when I get my hands on an advance copy of Act of War.

So how do you like the AoW demo OutcastHuman?
