EndWar: Paris siege

There’s something oddly disturbing about seeing Paris being bombed in a video game. I’m beginning to understand why Venezuela was irked by Mercenaries 2 (few countries or cities have embraced their silver-screen career like New York has).

Other than that, not much to say about the game; the voice commands seem to work well (for this particular demonstrator, although they’re shown more extensively in the other three-part walkthrough), but judging from the videos, and my very limited knowledge of RTS games, it doesn’t look like you have to do much by yourself — which may after all be a realistic simulation of a Presidential war room, and at any rate makes the game more accessible. This is clearly no Starcraft.
