Faces of War delivers stunning visuals with fully destructible environments. Large objects like buildings crumble and fall when hit by artillery or tank fire, while barrels and crates splinter under extended fire. But these effects play an important role in gameplay as well. Walls, trees, rocks and the wreckage of over-turned vehicles will all provide cover (while they last). Knowing how to take away your enemy’s advantage of cover is equally important. Having trouble advancing past a MG42 holed up in a building? Send a rocket their way and blast a hole through the wall leaving them vulnerable - if they survived the attack, that is.

DescriptionDespite destructible environments and extensive multiplayer, Faces of War falls short of total victory with frustrating AI and extensive micro-management duties.
