I usually love bargain bin games. I mean, lets face it; our beloved hobby comes at a premium. The bargain bin will often brim with quality games simply too old for prime real estate on store shelves. WWI: The Great War, however, is not one of these games. It didn’t have an illustrious run on the “new release” shelf and get demoted over to the bargain bin. No ladies and gentleman, this historical RTS locked on and shot over to the bargain bin from the get-go.
It’s a shame, because The Great War focuses on one of the most important events known to man: the First World War. Surprisingly, the RTS genre has all but neglected WWI until now. Game developers have made tons of sci-fi, fantasy and WWII RTS games, but never bothered exploring the first big war of the 20th century. Now that we have one such game, it seems we could have waited a little bit longer.
