Summary

Unplayable, not fun

The Good

The truth? I can't think of much things I loved about the game. There were some good ideas, but they weren't implemented well - like having the option to be in your command center and see the map, and then actually being outside. The idea is nice - but they should have made it more useful.

The Bad

The graphics - the game was released last year, but we saw other games with much more impressive 3D engines. The controls - don't they want us to play the game...? It took me a lot of time to understand how to navigate outside in the battle, and the manual certainly didn't help. Also, the gameplay isn't unique or something. They're just trying to hide the boring gameplay in the new 3D map, which wasn't implemented much yet then.

The Bottom Line

Not a good game at all! It isn't really interesting, old graphics, and almost impossible controls.
