Description from the packaging.

Terrorist forces are threatening the free world...

And the only power capable of stopping them is the U.S. Military.

The outcome is uncertain, but, as history has shown, leadership matters. You control the balance of power. Choose your side, marshal your forces and make real war upon your enemy.

Real War is the only real-time strategy game where you are in command of today's armed forces. All jets, ships and ground vehicles are taken directly from today's military with a few special items right off of the Pentagon's drawing boards.

In Real War- based on the official Joint Chiefs of Staff training game- you will.

  • Engage in 24 missions, 12 and the U.S. Military and 12 as the terrorist Independent Liberation Army. Win as either side.
  • Control more than 60 military units, all of which become tougher and faster with experience.
  • Deploy special units including spy satellites, propaganda planes, stealth bombers and electronic jammer planes.
  • Encounter military artificial intelligence as used in the official training game.
  • Build and protect supply lines to bring in resources. No artificial resource gathering.
  • Utilize special forces on terrain where no other units can go.
  • Employ anti-personnel measures from mines to nuclear missiles to biochemical weapons.
  • Fight online against up to 3 other commanders over the Internet or LAN.

With the voice of R. Lee Ermey, the drill sergeant in "Full Metal Jacket."

Real Weapons, Real War.

You are the commander. Know your enemy.

  • Use aircraft carriers to launch attacks against land targets.
  • Attack enemy outposts and strongholds with long-range artillery.
  • Strategically position and engage authentic SCUD launchers for surprise attacks.
  • Destroy key access points with authentic bombers and fighter jets.
