'Where Great Big War Game truly shines is in the sheer depth of the package itself'

Great Big War Game offers up true hexagonal strategy on a small screen. The core land/sea/air units are tuned to perfection, making every battle a close tug-of-war. But where Great Big War Game truly shines is in the sheer depth of the package itself. 50 single-player missions, online turn-by-turn multiplayer will keep gamers busy for countless hours. Great Big War Game also never takes itself too seriously, ensuring the hours-long campaign always keeps a smile on your face. more...

'We've been playing Great Big War Game for days now, and it's not letting up'

'Bit presumptuous to call it great. Oh wait, it is pretty great.'

GBWG has that big new thing in the shape of asynchronous multiplayer. You can play against people the world over, and you donít both have to be sat with phone/tablet in hand all the time the game is on. Turn, send, wait for their response, rinse and repeat. And itís even better than we might have guessed. A truly brilliant game. more...

'Great Big War Game continues where its prequel left off with the same great turn-based tactical action that we've grown to love.'

With the inclusion of asynchronous multiplayer, Rubicon has done a great job implementing the one feature missing from GLWG. When you include the large single player campaign, skirmish mode and maps, along with the excellent gameplay from its predecessor, there's very little to complain about in Great Big War Game. It's simply an amazing turn-based strategy game and a worthy sequel to the series. more...

'Replay value is outstanding, as the AI is surprisingly clever and a worthy adversary with multiple difficulty levels. '

App of the Week 'The multiplayer mode is where the fun really starts though, offering either Pass and Play gameplay, or the option to pit your wits against someone online.'

All this is supplemented by smart quips from your troops and a catchy military-band soundtrack that keeps you constantly absorbed in the gaming experience. more...
