IGN gives 9.3/10 to World in Conflict

It's not very often that a real-time strategy title comes along and changes the way you think about the genre. World in Conflict is one of those, not because all of the ideas are totally new, but because they're all put together in such a successful way. This game is unlike most real-time war-games for its tactical nature and reliance on teamwork. Because of this, the multiplayer is one of the best experiences on the market. While the single player plays second fiddle to the multiplayer (at least in my mind), it also provides explosive and well-conceived missions that build up the ideas of team-play through the various objectives given and an exceptionally well-presented story. When all is said and done, 2007 is going to be an amazing year for strategy titles and World in Conflict will be there among the best of them.

The story is too old to be commented.

Wow, it's the first time a site issues two reviews of the same game in less than 2 hours. IGN and IGN AU reviews both at the same time. 9.3 and 9.4. Great scores indeed.

The review does not reflect the 360 version. It's important since the controls are a major issue for RTS games.

Actually you can't say that untill that version is reviewed also.

BTW controls on a console has made a stap foreward with the new implementation of controls for example on C&C3 and last years Lord of the Rings: BFME II.

One thing is for sure, the gameplay itself rocks and if they manage to do the controls right, another RTS hits the 360. For sure it doesn't hit the PS3.

So if you own a 360 and you're a RTS fan it seems another great game comes to the 360. It's pretty much an advantage that games move over from the PC to the 360 also. Many PS3 fans complain about MS exclusives not being 'exclusive' to the 360, but at least its console exclusive also.

In short: curious about the 360 reviews on this game!

true but having the PC version of the game get a high score doesn't hurt

The mart would be the only person to find a reason to bring the PLAYSTATION 3's name into this discussion.
