Game Review – War Commander: Rogue Assault
For all you gamers out there, here is an all-new version of the military strategy game, War Commander: Rogue Assault. Updated as recently as January 2017, this game promises – and delivers – a stunning battlefield experience in 3D. Thus, putting this game in a league of its own when it comes to gaming on your smartphone. Available on both the iOS and Android platforms, the game is compatible with multiple devices.
The Creative Director behind the game is Louis Castle, the co-creator of Command and Conquer, which in itself makes it stand apart from the crowd in terms of expectations. The game is free to download (with in-app purchases) and to begin with, will take up only 123MB on your smartphone. You can choose to make in-app purchases to enhance your gaming experience, including ‘gold’ in various packages at different price points. What you need to keep in mind though is, that even the single-player games requires the player to be connected to the Internet. What makes it addictive is the fact that it is a great-looking game, with some impeccable detailing on the battle grounds, tanks and buildings.
When it comes to the gaming experience, the game moves smoothly, and while you will be playing on your smartphone, pinching the screen to zoom in and out will not affect the frame rate or even the gameplay negatively. Another plus in favour of the game is its audio elements, with some sharp design that provides life-like sounds for elements, including artillery shells, gunshots and other battle equipment. To take your experience up a notch, you could plug in your favourite headphones and play. All these features make it the best game in it’s class, and rank it high up there when it comes to some of the best mobile phone games available today.
Let us now take a look at some of the game features. It is easy to navigate this game, owing to the fact that a gamer has complete control over the troops that they are commanding in battle. The interface allows the user to manually control the game if so required, customising the game to the extent that you can change the default behaviour of your troops, which otherwise target the object nearest to them.
Like with all smartphone games, you need to build your resources, which allows you to keep the continuum going, but remember that the metal allotted to the player is limited. If you wish to move up faster, it will necessitate in-app purchases of gold, and should you wish to keep it simple (and minus any purchases that cost actual money), you would need to keep at mundane tasks to up your stash of metal.
Does the game keep you occupied for long periods of time? Yes, because given the complexity and number of levels with various upgrades within the game, you can comfortably spend a long time playing the game and upgrading battle equipment. In conclusion, in the war genre this is one of the best games out there.
