The denizens of Visitor range from cutthroat to clueless, with a lot more of the former than the latter, but the bottom line with 10-Six is that Visitor is a lonely and boring place if you prefer to avoid other players. To succeed and enjoy yourself, you have to be willing to network figuratively and not just literally�if chatting with strangers makes your skin crawl, you are definitely better served playing a host of other sci-fi strategy games online. The very least that can be said of 10-Six is that, so long as Heat.net continues to offer a free trial week of play, checking the game out is worth the several hours it takes to download. That is more than enough time to build a good base camp, make some allies, explore Visitor, and decide for yourself whether you want to subscribe.

Da die Jitter per Zufallsgenerator ins Haus flattern, kann es vorkommen, dass man eine halbe Stunde und länger ohne Baumöglichkeit dasteht. Ein weiterer Knackpunkt ist die Steuerung. Während man nämlich als Verteidiger seine Truppen noch recht elegant via Zugrahmen und scrollbarer Draufsicht der Basis heraus befehligt, haben Angreifer nicht bloß mit dem Feind, sondern auch noch mit unübersichtlichen Grafikperspektiven (wahlweise Egosicht oder Heckkamera à la „Tomb Raider“) zu kämpfen. Tröstlich zu wissen, dass die texturierte Polygonoptik immerhin recht nett aussieht und auch ganz hübsche Lichteffekte aus dem (optionalen) 3D-Beschleuniger kitzelt. Der Sound beschränkt sich auf etwas Musik, Effekte und ein paar Brocken englischer Sprachausgabe. In der Summe also ein originelles, aber nicht gänzlich ausgereiftes Online-Game - Verbesserungen im Detail sollen jedoch immer wieder per Auto-Patch beim Einloggen nachgereicht werden.

A steep learning curve doesn't ruin an intriguing new online-only persistent-world RTS at HEAT.NET.
Unlike playing a game of C&C or Dark Reign2 over the Internet, the communities that exist in persistent world games like 10six and Allegiance are really what keep people coming back. 10six is not for people who like to base-build and keep to themselves, in fact you probably wouldn’t survive an attack on another claim supported by an MDN. Looking past the low-quality “representational” graphics, 10six is a good game for players who like to interact and plan strategies with others. If you want to be alone with a fast-paced game and mind-blowing graphics, get Dark Reign 2.

10Six certainly offers something fresh to the gaming world with an off kilter style of play that hasn't quite been done before. However, a few factors taint the surface of Visitor that may make it unplayable for some gamers. The lackluster graphics and sound effects are certainly a turn off, but could be forgiven in favor of immersive gameplay and an obscene number of fellow players. The biggest stain that hurts this package though is the harsh learning curve that you're in for if you decide to sign up. Several users probably will never get past it, and those that do may underestimate their enemies' forces and end up taking a dirt nap quite early in the adventure. It seems just a hair too complicated and tedious to have widespread appeal. However, to those who are die hard enough to persevere through the first few agonizing days or weeks of learning time, a happy home may be found on Visitor.
SegaSoft, Inc. tries to break away from the pack while still cashing in on the online trend with 10SIX, a persistent online real-time strategy game. While blocky graphics and minimal sound effects dull the experience, the worst problem is the lack of things to do while waiting between the short bursts of unfulfilling action. The loading screen for 10SIX pretty much sums up the totality of game: "Own, Mine, Defend, Attack, 24/7".

10Six n'est pas un mauvais jeu, il est juste ennuyeux, plat, insipide, et ne vaut définitivement pas son prix.
Your units’ AI is brain-dead; there are some interface bugs; it’s impossible to shoot anything accurately even with a good ping: and everyone else seems to have massively-powerful weapons. This one’s got a long, long way to go before it has a chance at its 10^6 player goal.
