Introduction The unholy war is an action/stratgey game from Crystal Dynamics and Eidos interactive. At first glance it doesn't seem all that impressive, so I was reluctant to purchase it. But I was always taught never to judge a book by its cover. So I bought it. Well I must say that I like it. The Mayhem mode is fun if your not into that strategy thing, and the Strategy mode is fun if you want more of a challenge. If you haven't guessed already this is my first FAQ.

Modes Of Play The Unholy War is divided into two type of games. Mode one is Mayhem mode, which is just a one-on-one battle between you and the computer or another human player. Mode two is Strategy mode, which is a strategic battle where the two forces clash in campaigns to capture bases. During this mode Mayhem mode will come up when two warriors fight over the same hex. There are some different options in each mode. But good for you I have laid them all out for you! ( gee aren't I so nice ^_^ ) Mayhem Mode ----------- The First thing you do is select your team.

Power ups What game would be complete without powerups. Just pick one up and super charge your warrior! When a power up is shows up and the battlefield an arrow with point to it. Not all the power ups will be battlefield at one time, what fun would that be ^_^! I'll do my best to describe them for ya... 1. Health - Raises Health - looks like an anhk 2. Speed - Increases Speed, temporaily - looks like a ball with a smaller ball rotating around it. 3. Super Jump - Increases jump altitude for a short time. Flying characters rise more quickly. - looks like a ball that moves vertically. 4. Engery Jolt - No energy loss when you use a weapon; lasts for a short time. - looks like a ball with an aura. 5. Invincibility - Warrior is indestructible for a short time. - Looks like a ball with a very bright aura. VI. Tips & Hints I have none as of yet. But if you want to submit some just Email them to me.
