Description official descriptions

In the future, on the planet Allium, the situation has become desperate. This world has suffered from global warming, causing the polar ice caps to melt. The rising sea has resulted in the amount habitable land to decrease dramatically. All that is left are island chains, making land the most valuable resource on the planet. The entire population must survive and compete over these islands.

Currently, there are two distinct civilizations on Allium, settled into an uneasy cease-fire. There are the scientifically advanced Forseti and the aggressive Muspell. The Forseti have recently developed the most advanced combat vehicle in existence, the Battle Engine Aquila. The Aquila is both a four-legged mechanized tank and a combat jet, it is capable of switching modes at will. Players take the role of Hawk Winter, a Forseti cargo loader operator who has been conscripted because of his piloting skills.

Battle Engine Aquila is a mechanized shooter taking place in a larger battlefield. The player plays only a single, yet important, role in a larger war effort. A large part of the gameplay consists of supporting and being supported by the allied forces. Players will have to fight naval, air, and ground forces in both modes of their battle engine.

Some great design and with an epic scale, but somehow unengaging.

The Good
Huge battles raging across entire islands with hundreds of tanks, aircraft and troops in the mix. A host of unlockable extras that includes some absolutely peerless concept art.

The Bad
Unfortunately the implementation doesn't rise to the quality of the concept. Somehow this game is less than the sum of its parts. Oh, and don't mention the voice-acting!

The Bottom Line
Epic in scale but perhaps an aquired taste. Big in ideas but ultimately lacking in atmosphere and variety.
