In an alternate reality created by Larry Bond where the Berlin Wall never fell and the Soviet Union has invaded American soil, gamers must rally armies of units to soothe a World in Conflict. Battles take place in the destructible fields, forests, and strip malls of Middle America. Single and multiple players must command squadrons of Soviet, American, or NATO tanks, trucks, troops, planes, helicopters, and nuclear weapons in order to hold off the advancing enemy and maintain their position while attempting to move the line forward.
To successfully complete a game, gamers must guide their infantry and aircraft towards the enemy's capture zone. Each zone is protected by multiple circles of units that increase in number when the area is protected for long periods of time. Defeating at least one circle of defense turns the zone into a neutral space. During the game, players earn tactical points by sending their army into battle. These points can be used later in the game to call for air strikes, perform a radar scan, or to drop a nuclear bomb. By connecting to the Internet, gamers may declare war on multiplayer maps that support up to 16 players.
In addition to a full copy of the game, the specially packaged "Collector's Edition" of World in Conflict includes a "behind the scenes" video, a History Channel documentary, and an actual piece of the Berlin Wall. ~ Gracie Leach, All Game Guide
