Ground Control


Apart from some shortcomings and designing issues, you will find Ground Control as one of the best war game developed so far that has challenges and rewards waiting for the gamers.

 


 

It looks completely fabulous and its 3D engine makes the entire animated military unit realistic. The on-going scenary looks gorgeous and the game map describes everything in detail. While moving forward, you will see some sand dunes along with some bugs buzzing around you creating a dense situation in your sorroundings. Every single character is loaded with hi-tech military weapons that are capable enough to toast the enemies.

Talking about special effects, Ground Control has everyting right from the tracers of the tank’s weapon to the bright explosions that gives you an experience of real war like situation. This game has different lighting effects to differentiate all the battles happening everyday. Even the flying unit of the Ground Control performs very well and dives above the battlefield to destroy the enemy base. While playing Ground Control, you will get an immense feeling in the battle due to the high quality sound. Upon zooming in the camera view, you will be able to distinguish the sound of the unit’s that are closer to you. You may not consider the entire sound quality noteworthy but this zooming in feature will give you enough evidence on the sound quality of this war game.

Talking about its graphics and presentation, you may find it difficult to control different units, as the view of this game is raised to an isometric perspective so as to comfortably fit couple of units onscreen. Even if you add high resolution to the view, it gets so difficult to differentiate between the units from such high view. But its user interface is very friendly, as even if you have played once, you will get used to the user-interface very soon. To rotate or tilt any view, you have to use mouse and all the other controls are available on the keyboard itself. As it gets difficult for gamers to use on-screen buttons, you can map them on your keyboard’s hot-keys to use those functions in the battlefield. Some of us find it hard enough to understand any battle game properly. To solve this issue, Ground Control comes with an easy to follow step-by-step tutorial that helps you in understanding the game and controls to use during battles. Once you have selected all the units, you have to issue an order to entire squad. Once they receive orders, all the units may fire and behave independently that makes the situation out of control.  You have to make sure that all the units are under control and are following your orders. Sometimes, you have to split up the entire squad into small groups or may have to control it as a whole to ensure your win in the battlefield. Also you have to keep checking individual’s unit health so as to decide which unit needs medical backup and which unit has to move further.  You have to pay attention and be active all the time or else, situation may get even worse. It may be possible that you don’t get time to attack your enemies in case you are not well prepared.

Play Ground Control war game and experience real war like situation in gaming world.
