Summary

The only Action/RTS game that truly does both genres well

The Good

Most about this game that works me is the working concept of the game. . . the ability to both play it in RTS fashion and to play it as an action title. Both are done very well, and play perfectly. As well, the aspect of attrition warfare akin to Total Annihilation. A groundbreaking game that is underated.

The Bad

The interface takes time getting used to, almost like a pseudo-windows GUI interface. . . (ie. resiszing windows while in action OR rts mode etc) The unit balances aren't exactly spot on, but they do the job.

The Bottom Line

Akin to Battlezone 1 and 2, Uprising, Total Annihilation and Command and Conquer series. The action part of the game plays almost like a future version of Dungeon Keeper (playing as the units) and the rts side a mix between Total Annihlation/CnC.
