Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
Hegemonia, despite its top-notch visuals and presentation values, is like a trip back through time. In many ways, it’s most similar to a game released in 1990: Dune. This was the prequel to the release that sparked the RTS revolution. Indeed, this isn’t surprising, as listed among the credits for Hegemonia is Cryo, the party responsible for Dune, now a partner of DreamCatcher Interactive. The games have a lot in common, not the least of which is their ability to negate most of the features that they employ through redundancy and self sabotage. Despite their depth and host of options, they’re superficial RTS games where only one strategy is necessary or viable. Perhaps history will repeat itself and Imperium Galactica III will spark the next revolution.
