The AI programming function is superbly designed and well-implemented. In fact, if you are considering learning a language you could do far worse than buy Omega for that purpose and no other, as it is very easy to learn. My one reservation is that non-programmers, who only use the modules, may feel that much of their money is wasted. Even so, full marks to Origin for the high degree of innovation. My recommendation? Buy it.

Programmers love this "simulation." Design-your-own tank and program it in quasi-computerese to survive the combat environment. If "Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" and you personally "Dream of Assembly and C," you'll love it. Otherwise, it's all geek to me.
 
As wonderful as Omega is — it is not for everyone. This is a game that will require thoughtful design work on the part of the player. The massive 250+ page manual will have to be read nearly in its entirety to get the most out of the game (although you can get by with less and still have a lot of fun). To those of us that are willing to spend the time, Omega will reward the effort most handsomely. Omega is the kind of game that is sure to develop the same kind of dedicated following that Robotwar had. It's release has been anxiously awaited around the offices of CGW. It is a real winner.
