interesting, haven’t we seen it all before though?
WM is primarily a single player game; it houses an earth shattering
60! Count them 60! Single player levels and 8 Multiplayer ones.
All are vast terrains being calculated in real time, including
fog effects, particle explosions, smooth smoke trails, real
time lighting and if your lucky enough to have a G400 (Matrox
where’s mine?) then Environmental Bump Mapping too. As an addition
to that, with a G400 it also supports Duel Monitors, basically
meaning you can watch from two different viewpoints at the same
time. Ideal if you want to call up a tactical satellite map
and play the game as well, this is what real time games are
all about! WM is now quite well into development and release
times are hinted towards Q4-99 but you never know if somehow
it’ll creep into 2000 without us knowing it.
can’t help wondering whether or not WM will be another more
advanced but just as cheesy ‘Machines’ / ‘Warzone2100’ clone
or a totally original take on the action/strategy universe.
With the likes of Hostile Waters coming up around the same time,
it’s sure to have a tough fight ahead of it, hopefully when
it arrives it will prove to us just how good it really is. Until
then, the game looks smooth, sexy, playable and has a lot of
unusual yet useable and unique features to it that we look forward
