SummaryA great (but forgotten?) 3D Real-time Strategy game
The GoodThis game is wonderful! The post-apocalyptic story-line may not be very original, but it works and the intro movie is nice to watch. :) The way you research new technologies and design new units works perfect, the graphics are good enough and the music is great. The camera can be rotated both horizontal and vertical and you can lock it on your units to follow their movements (though you can't zoom very much). The AI is good (though i've seen it construct buildings at the only exit out or their base, making sure none of their combat units are being able to exit the base one time). You can also attach your units to radar sensors and commander vehicles to make the sensor/commander to determine a good target and make the units attack it (commanders may also be given artillery support, making all your base defense with firing range enough to fire at the commander's target).
The BadThe ctrl+new target described in the manual to detach units from sensors and commanders doesn't always work.. which can get a little annoying. The drawing distance is also quite short, making it impossible to enemies far away unless looking at the radar, even if the area is discovered. The way you upgrade factories and research centers could have been less confusing too. Your constructing vehicles has a "build factory upgrade"-button, but it doesn't work, you have to left click on the factory directly instead, which makes me wonder why there is a "build upgrade"-button in the first place.
