A Bit Like the gingerbread house from fairy tales of old, War On Terror beckons you in with its flashy models and pretty bloom lighting, but when you get inside you realise you're trapped in a dingy cottage with a murderous, wart-faced hag, and she's got a shit single-player campaign and some of the worst waypointing ever made.
That's right, underneath War On Terror's alluring exterior lurks a far less attractive strategy game tarnishing the capable game engine. Right off the bat I'm struggling to move my troops around a corner, with a terrorist leader refusing to attack me and the chopper that just dropped off my reinforcements doing an infinite barrel-roll, like a cat with a rotisserie shoved up its arse.
Even the holiness of Canterbury Cathedral can't save War On Terror from a pit of mediocrity; the generic units and plot premise do very little to inspire and combat is completely barren of any sort of excitement or strategy. Sloppy implementation makes this already average strategy game just forgettable. But perhaps I'm being too harsh; the environments are very pretty, and at least developers Digital Reality have gone out of their way to create some longevity with the three playable sides. Nope, wait, my tank's just got stuck in a hedge again.
