Description official description

From the creators of Aliens vs Predators comes Gunlok, a 3D isometric team-based real-time strategy game. The human race has advanced technologically to the point that robots now do all the work while the humans enjoy a life of leisure. One day mankind gave up control of the robots and soon the machines realized they had unrestricted power and waged war against themselves and the human race. Soon the machines settled their differences amongst themselves and turned their animosity towards man. This is where you come in. Play as Gunlok, a human with power armor and a radical new energy technology - Earth Power to once again bring the machines back into order.

Control Gunlok and four robot/mechs on missions to infiltrate The Corporation and take control of a world gone mad. Each character has their own special abilities in which you will need to use to advance in the war against the robots like a lightly armored robot that is good at scouting to a heavily armored "tank" robot that can take allot of damage as well as give it out to a repair-bot that can not only heal/repair damage but can also immobilize enemy robots. Weapons are many and varied from plasma pistols to missile launchers to a weapon called a Nanofragmenter that sprays energized nanobots that dismantle enemies at the atomic scale. Every character including Gunlok can be upgraded with modules to enhance the robot from scanners to scan the terrain (your in-game mini-map) to hologram generators to fool the enemies.

Enemy robots have the ability to see and hear you and you have the ability to cloak yourself in junk piles or in water that is deep enough. Also use audio mines to distract your enemies to sneak around them. Gunlok has a re-con ability which is seen in first person mode that allows you to identify your enemies and fire the Energy Pulse Weapon which does heavy damage to the enemy at a health cost to Gunlok.

Play 15 huge single player levels or play in several types of multiplayer modes including co-operative play on single player levels, death match, capture the flag and rescue the president.

Superb but difficult action strategy game set in the future

The Good
The graphics are very advanced and conjure up a world of future destruction well. The levels take you through blasted locations with huge smashed technological buildings like radar dishes and bunkers lying rusting on the ground and providing cover for your units.

The Bad
Maybe it is too hard to begin with, but once you get the hang of the 'active pause' mechanic of the gameplay, playing gets much simpler. This combination of action and planning is really original and allows both fast paced action and strategic movement to be used.

The Bottom Line
If you like movies like Terminator and Mad Max, then this is similar but with robots. The story is compelling too and quite deep. The graphics engine is wonderful at showing the glowing plasma beams and strange lighting effects.A challenging title that stretched the strategy genre. Quite a steep learning curve, but great scenario and satisfying at the end.
