    JBlack11's Tom Clancy's EndWar (PS3)

    [December 10, 2012 09:37:53 PM]
    The game that I have chosen to write about this week is an addition to the Tom Clancy series of games and is called EndWar. EndWar is a real-time strategy game, where the user uses a headset to issue commands to your units by speaking your wishes to your squads. The basic core of the game is revolved around the three factions of the future, the United States of America, Russia, and Europe and their battle to conquer the world. All of the factions create the same kinds of troops and attack vehicles with each being particularly strong against a different troop or vehicle and also weak against another kind of troop or vehicle. It is the players job to command their force to victory by taking strategic places in the world and defending places as they conquer the other two factions.
    Your headset has an enormous impact on the experience and is the basis of the gameplay of the game. To order your units about, you issue a series of preset commands by holding a trigger and speaking your directive into the microphone. This runs the gamut from attacking enemy squads ("Unit two, attack hostile four") and bringing in reinforcements when they are available ("Deploy gunships") to centering your view on a particular group ("Unit three, camera") and ordering special attacks ("Air strike, hostile six"). There are limited possibilities, so don't expect to plan out multiple waypoints or set up tank patrols. Nor can you rely completely on the microphone--at least, not if you intend to be competitive. Actions like garrisoning infantry into a building or ordering your units to unleash special attacks require some button presses, so there is a bit of light micromanagement in this regard. Additionally, if you don't have a microphone or just don't want to use one, you can use just the controller, though given the uniqueness of the voice commands, that isn't ideal.
    Overall EndWar is a great game and a cool experience to be able to use your headset fluently in a game and I would recommend this game.
