It's about the best analogy IGN has heard for your first time playing EndWar – it's like Guitar Hero for RTS fans. It has that same intrinsic public-spectacle-factor that needs to be overcome before you can truly get comfy with shouting commands to your TV screen. Thankfully, Ubisoft has managed to nearly perfect the voice-recognition software built into Tom Clancy's EndWar, meaning that you're less likely to be repeating yourself over and over and rapidly lose your composure in front of your mates or spouse. IGN sat down with Vinh-Dieu Lam, Lead AI Programmer on the new series to chat about the technology and where it's heading. He also sheds some early light on the sequel, plus the next Ghost Recon.
