Before you start playing War 2 Glory, you have to create the commander that you will have to be. You can choose to be either a male or female commander. There’s nothing special about the male commanders but the female commanders’ portraits will look familiar to some people. One of the female commanders looks like pop diva, Christina Aguilera, while another closely resembles Britney Spears. I’m pretty sure this game got pictures of hot models to attract its target audience, but I highly doubt girls like that will ever become army commanders…
War 2 Glory a traditional RTS game. Before you head off into battle, you will need to build houses for your soldiers to live in and build your base. If you are not a fan of the RTS genre, there’s a chance you probably won’t like playing this game.
This is mainly because a bit of patience and a lot of skills are required to enjoy these types of games. Much like most other games, you will be left with low resources and skills at the very beginning. It can be a bit tedious having to build all the necessary buildings to allow your military to prosper.
The tutorial is very brief and does not tell you much in the way of handling combat. All it tells you is how to build your military base and prompts you to visit the game’s official website for a FAQs page. The FAQs page is helpful, but I would rather have the game itself explain everything to the player instead. Once you get all that boring stuff out-of-the-way, only then can the real fun begin.
The great thing about War 2 Glory has that many other browser-based titles don’t, is that there’s actually some audio in the game. It can be a little boring playing a war-based game without any sounds of explosions and gunfire on the battlefield.
The online community is helpful too as there is a chat feature integrated within the game that allows you to ask them for any hints or tips you may want answered. With that being said, you are able to also just declare war with any of the other players in the gaming world you occupy.
Before you declare war, you have the option to even “scout” your enemies by sending out your troops to spy on what they are doing. Unlike other military-based games you have the option to strike from the air, sea or by land.
Graphically, the game is highly detailed and resembles many RTS PC games that were released back in the late ’90s. It’s good to know that the developer has kept things authentic as you have the option to choose from over 40 WWII vehicles. The world map is really huge so you can expect hours of gameplay conquering other people’s bases.
War 2 Glory is a great game for the patient RTS player. The only flaw in the game is the “Rookie Protection Mode”. This feature prevents rookie players from engaging from any combat for 7 days unless they level up. It does get a little time-consuming but once you build your army, destroying other people’s armies can be dangerously addictive.
