World at Arms
The bore war
by Paul Devlin 12/2/2013
Product: World at Arms - Wage war for your nation!
Format: Android, iPhone, iPad
Genre: Multiplayer, Strategy
Although the trio of currencies needed to keep playing Gameloft's latest would be deemed excessive by even the most staunch freemium defender, the not so stealthy in-app purchase issues pale in comparison to how blandly this so-called strategy game actually plays.
With its low-res visuals, spoon-fed missions, and toothless tactical combat, you'd have more fun on a package tour of Afghanistan's roomiest caves.
Taking pot shots
In World at Arms's parallel universe, pariah nation du jour North Korea - sorry, the KRA - has finally got around to invading the US, and it's up to you to fend off the enemy incursion from a tiny military base that hasn't actually been built yet.
Drab to look, dull to play, and desperate for your cash, Gameloft's barely social strategy title is barely worth shelling out a penny on
