The sequel to Dark Reign: The Future of War comes in real 3D, which is not the only new feature in this title. Gameplay is still the same like it used to be some years ago - just another RTS from that point of view. Music is dynamic and changes when it comes to a battle. Between the missions are short rendered clips. The coordination of the units is easy, and the terrains are unique in this game.


Dark Reign 2 Windows What would an RTS game be without harvesting (ahumm, Myth was fine without it).
Dark Reign 2 Windows Defensive towers are also used to create energy walls.
Dark Reign 2 Windows The danger is coming from the sky.
Dark Reign 2 Windows Look at the flying fortress in the sky... It can drop a big explosion on the ground.
