Summary

An amazing RTS expansion, way better than its Warcraft cousins.

The Good

What I like about this game is that it's such an open-ended game. Each unit and building can be used in multiple ways, so the possibilities are practically endless. The multiplayer is just amazing. I also liked that there are three different races and each of them have different advantages and disadvantages. I liked the part where you had to mine 2 different types of resources, rather than 1 type or 6 different types, it's the perfect amount.

The Bad

There are a couple of small balance issues, I also didn't like when the other players lagged and slowed down the game (in multiplayer). I didn't like that the computer could simultaneously control 30 units and such. The last thing I didn't like is that the game can sometimes run slowly if there are other programs running in the background.

The Bottom Line

This game is an open-ended game with multiplayer, and single player story, although, I would like to see a multiplayer story mode in a future release. [Some information on this game was provided by my good friend Colin]
