Ratings and Reviews
Great turn-based war game
Has all the expected units with appropriately balanced strengths and weakness to reward good strategic planning. A good campaign mode that makes sure you learn the skills and strategies that will be essential on later levels. On easy mode it is quite easy to work out what you did wrong and win with a modified strategy. Harder levels are too tough for me at the moment so I expect there will be lots more to learn or even more powerful units to unlock. The best part is learning to fight on multiple fronts, holding one front while attacking another or retreating and regrouping. It is more involved that quick attacks although they have there place in this game as well. I like the advantage or getting a sniper on high terrain... Neutralising an enemy sniper on high ground is great fun. The characters have cute sayings when they die that vary a little bit and have adjustable settings. They also do gestures to wave their colleague forward etc. My favourite part is having a 'heroic' unit that gets sent into danger, takes heavy fire but survives to inflict damage on the enemy---these units get promoted and get a health boost to continue being 'heroic'.
GLWG: It really is a great little war game!
This is the app that I have been waiting for. It's fun; it's strategic; and it is nicely put together. The AI is a little too easy to defeat, but is still capable of slowing your achievement of awards.
The game is reminiscent of Worms, and has the same easy play style. Character animation is comical at times, especially when infantry units duck to avoid incoming missiles.
The game looks good, plays well, and is highly recommended.
I would like to see more customization of AI strength, and a larger array of available troop and vehicle types and upgrade options... But then we'd have a turn-based Command and Conquer game on our hands. What's wrong with that, I say?
Can't wait for GLWG2!!!
Glwg review from merp700
This game is a very entertaining game due to its substantial thinking of strategy and its colossal activity of dialogues and comedy sarcasm. I without a doubt enjoy using new units and especially navy and air units. It's skirmish mode is to the extreme entertainment as the bases are ridiculously close.
Although I do admit it that some levels are very hard to accomplish and especially hard to get a trophy. And the fact that your army side receives a great disadvantage is heck annoying.
But overall this game is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!
