Nuclear War is a game with a very simple objective, and that is to kill everyone on the planet and make your nation
the only one left alive.(There were two sequels NW2
and 3) This single player strategy game is released in 1989, when the Cold War was still a thing, and it became a big success very soon. You play against three other computer controlled players and, by using propaganda
or sheer nuclear power, you have to destroy them, making you the last man standing. The game is a satire
in itself, since it uses a very serious problem at the time and makes it into a mockery. Even the character names are satirised, such as Ronnie Raygun
who is actually Ronald Reagan, P.M. Satcher
actually being Margaret Thacther and so on. The graphics are really good for the time it was made and the sound is more or less average but the gameplay and the idea of the game themselves are the real reason why this game was such a hit. The game has a very original idea and is very funny and fun to play, so I recommend it to all strategy lovers.
