PSX Extreme writes: "The Tom Clancy franchise has done a lot for Ubisoft as a whole. Let's face it, without the Tom Clancy games, Ubisoft wouldn't be anywhere as successful as they are today. The brand really drives sales for the third party publisher, allowing it to quickly join the ranks of other mega publishers like EA and Activision. The franchise continues to constantly evolve, branching out from Rainbow Six with Ghost Recon, and creating Splinter Cell. Now, more spin-offs are on the way with the likes of HAWX and EndWar, the latter of which is the game in question.
The superbly talented bunch at Ubisoft Shanghai is behind EndWar, and the team is lead by director Michael de Plater. Development of the game has been underway for quite some time now, based on the overall polish of the product, it shows. Unlike other war games, EndWar is more akin to the direction Call of Duty 4 is heading: as it takes place during a fictional rendition of the third world war. But of course, COD4 isn't about WWIII, so don't think that that's what both games are about. In any case, the goal for EndWar is to showcase a strong real-time strategy game that can compete with the likes of Command and Conquer."
