Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (6 ):

The game's story is told through outstanding cut scenes and in-game narration. World in Conflict spends a lot of time developing character personalities -- the player can identify with the turmoil some of characters are going through. Players get to focus almost entirely on battlefield strategy, rather than micro-managing the collection of gold, wood, oil, etc. As good as the single-player campaign is, the game really shines with its multiplayer options.

Like Battlefield 2 and other recent online war games, the leader board has a whole host of medals, ribbons, and awards for players to win. Teams that work together in multiplayer mode have a huge advantage, since each player only specializes in one area: air, support, infantry, etc.
