The game revolves around the story of War, one of the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, who believes he is summoned into the final battle for Earth only to find he has been tricked. Stripped of his powers and forced onto a lead by the Watcher, War returns to Earth nearly a century after its destruction to right the wrongs he was tricked into committing. War is a likeable character, though lacking in any real attachment. He's a man on a mission, and doesn't care who dies in the process - think Bruce Willis in Die Hard. It's a basic enough storyline, but told well with some interesting and unique NPCs who'll help you out.
