Wars and Battles 

 

My favorite style of video game is turn based strategy. Wars and Battles is a turn based strategy. It is based on a variety of battles and wars. There are even what if scenarios in Wars and Battles. Since Wars and Battles is based on war expect to see violence. I see Wars and Battles as a game for teenagers and above. I know what Apple said, and we are quibbling over one year.

Wars and Battles has long loading times with decent looking graphics. iPad owners can swap between 2D and 3D graphics in Wars and Battles. The 2D graphics can save some of the battery drain from this downloadable only hand held tablet video game. It might also stop some of those pesky game crashes we ran into. I think surrounding an enemy and having everyone go after them at once may have been a bit too much for Wars and Battles at times.

I wish Wars and Battles was on the PS Vita and/or Nintendo 3DS in the physical format. I know plenty of strategy gamers that only play physical copies of games. Many of them would go back to an older Shining Force game before downloading a game. Maybe Wars and Battles will progress to the physical realm at some future date. I would buy one for twenty to thirty dollars.

Wars and Battles has this real cool feature called stacking. This allows the player to merge multiple units on the same space. They become more powerful thanks to the merger. This is a great way to overwhelm defenses and capture cities. Which is one of the main early on missions for the Allies in Wars and Battles. In case you were curious, you can play the Axis in Wars and Battles too.

The music can feel epic at times, especially while watching the loading bar crawl along. An ant walked across the screen and beat the loading bar. Man I really miss plug and play video games. There are some in-app purchases for additional areas after already paying $6.99 for the app. Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download code for Wars and Battles for this review.

I like the strategy and objectives in Wars and Battles. It was weird that the terrain was flat in the 3D mode. I also found it odd that human troops were taller than tanks in Wars and Battles. There are some words in Wars and Battles that your family may find offensive. They describe battles, and the nature of war. I noticed them on numerous screens while playing Wars and Battles.
