I wish I could say that I’m back, but unfortunately I’m not just yet. I still have no internet at home, but I really wanted to review This War of Mine because I think it’s a excellent game and it deserves to be reviewed.This War of Mine is unlike any game I’ve ever played. It lets us see a war from an entirely different perspective. We’re not playing as a soldier fighting through mobs of enemies. Instead we get to play as the normal everyday people that were affected by it.
When I started This War of Mine I was very skeptical. I didn’t think it would be a very good game to play. I thought it had a good idea, but lacked gameplay. Five minutes later I was hooked. I love running around and gathering resources to keep my small band of survivors healthy, and protected.
During the day you can use the resources you have to build beds for you to sleep in, a heater to keep you warm, or just a radio for you to listen to so you’ll know what the weather will be like or just to cheer the place up some with some music.
As you collect more materials you’ll be able to upgrade your stove, workbench, and various other things so you’ll be able to build even more items to help you survive the war.
At night is where things get interesting. When the sun goes down you’ll be able to send one of your people out to scavenge for food, weapons, or materials. You’ll have to be careful because you’ll most likely run into other people trying to do the same thing and you don’t want to risk confronting them. If your character takes any damage from a fight they’ll be wounded and will need medication to get better.
If a wound is unattended for too long it’ll worsen and your character could die. When a character dies they’re gone forever. This game does not hold your hand, but it’s not very difficult once you learn it. It’s up to the player to decide what’s most important to them.
If you find yourself struggling to find medical supplies or food you can always trade for them, but they’re really expensive. People will most likely require you to trade a lot for them.
Special events can happen from time to time. A neighbor might need help saving people from a burning building or breaking into a secure building. It’s up to you on whether or not you’ll want to risk one of people to do the job.
This War of Mine is a surprisingly good game. I played it for hours and never once got tired of it. This game is different than most games that come out today and it’s definitely worth $17.99 on Steam.
