Graphics/Interface (3 out of 5)
The game looks great and the interface is easy to use but has a few problems. The first problem with Global Warfare’s interface is that it is quite small in your browser. It would be nice if the game occupied just a bit more space. On the plus side, the game map is easy to navigate and the cities are clearly labeled. The game could also use a full screen mode. When sending gifts to your Facebook friends you need to reload the game when going back to it, which is a bit annoying. Overall, the negative points are minor and the game is still good.
