This is what real-time strategy games used to be like before age of empires....

It has a real cool premise and the full motion video sequences are surprisingly good. They had better Aircraft then Empire Earth...
The gameplay, graphics and ai suck, horribly. The enemy will send wave after wave of enemies that get killed nearly instantly by your fortified buildings. Super units will demolish your base (or theirs) instantly. Forget strategy. Although there are some of the "tank good against infantry good against anti-tank" kind of thing, you can just build all of the biggest units you can build and attack. Most of the units look like crap and have little detail. Age of empires looks alot better.
The Bottom Line
Don't bother with this game. It is a game from an era that didn't know Age of Empires.
