Act of War continues to genre of military strategy war games, but does it on a grand style. It's near future plot strikes close to home, placing the American public at the mercy of huge gas prices controled by an evil criminal organization. The United States has no choice except of course, to invade. The USA army is dispached, along with an elite military task force led by you.

The game has a impressive graphics engine, and it appears with all the bells and whistles of a 2005 game. Going farther beyond most games however is the story. Revealed through both ingame events as well as live action movies the story and its accompanying game are sure to please fans of the real time strategy as well as traditional gamers.
