SummaryThe Linux release is a good port of the Windows release, with the exception of network play
The GoodThe game is a lot of fun and gives you a lot of different races to play around with. The best part about the game is that it is simple enough to learn in less than an hour, but has enough gameplay depth to play for months. The sounds effects and graphics are top notch.
The BadI didn't like the fact that network play is only supported with other Linux players and not with players on the Windows version. This is not really Loki's fault since they would have to reverse-engineer DirectPlay in order to be compatible, but it is a disappointment. Also, while gameplay is generally balanced, some of the factions are quite a bit weaker than the other factions in unit strength, and the cheapness of their units doesn't make up for it.
