War takes place during World War 2 in Nazi-occupied Europe. It is
a colourful story of an adventurer, involved in his own private war
in those darkest of times. The game has a very elaborate plot, with
its own brand of lively action, style and humour. You will find many
allusions to classic books and movies, like "Raiders of the Lost
Ark", "Allo, Allo", "Catch-22", "Saving
Private Ryan", and "The Dirty Dozen" amongst others.
Wanting to save his friend from the Nazis, our hero gets caught
up in a bloody intrigue between the warring superpowers. The plot
starts in a small town in occupied France. The only things reminding
us that war is raging is the heavy presence of German gendarmerie
patrols on the streets and groups of Wehrmacht soldiers on leave
occupying the local cafes. However, the finale takes place in the
hell of an under siege Leningrad where our hero stumbles upon one
of the most secretly guarded projects run by both Soviet and German
Another War's interface is modelled on those of classic cRPG games,
mainly on the Baldur's Gate and Fallout series. The game has 2D
rendered graphics in an isometric view with pre-rendered characters.
The backgrounds include many architectural and natural details in
a variety environments. Uniforms, weapons and equipment have also
been pictured in detail. Extended battle and character development
systems have been implemented.
Another War also takes advantage of active lighting, smoke, explosions,
flames and atmospheric effects as well as surround sound.
