"Under Siege" hat es geschafft, endlich ein brauchbares Echtzeit-Strategiespiel auf einer Konsole. Das Spiel bietet fordernde Kämpfe, eine erlernbare Steuerung und die wichtigsten strategischen Grundlagen. Mit Zwischensequenzen und Dialogen zum Mitlesen wird versucht, die Geschichte ein wenig voranzutreiben. Ein weiterer großer Pluspunkt ist auf jeden Fall der leicht zu bedienende Karteneditor.

Para responder então à pergunta inicial. Sim, a julgar por Under Siege, o que é nacional é bom. É um jogo divertido e acessível mesmo para quem nunca ponderou o género, as ferramentas de criação e partilha de níveis, e até de campanhas, assim como os modos para vários jogadores dão um toque especial e a SEED Studios está de parabéns pelo seu trabalho. Consegue oferecer uma das propostas com maior valor de retorno em todo o catálogo do serviço. Além do mais, todo este mundo apresentado consegue cativar, ficando o mote para mais trabalhos do estúdio e ficamos à espera de um Under Siege 2.

In short, Under Siege is a fast-paced, good-looking, accessible RTS that falls down only due to its sudden difficulty spikes and unremarkable story. The lack of tactical depth is balanced by brutal combat, the lack of variety offset by colourful graphics and relatively small missions. Perhaps best enjoyed as a multiplayer experience, Under Siege is still a lot of fun on your tod – and if nothing else, it certainly helps to occupy the RTS-shaped hole in the PS3’s catalogue.

Under Siege is a well-done RTS, although a bit too challenging for its own good. Featuring a high caliber production value and control scheme for a downloadable title, there’s a lot to like in this maiden voyage for a new studio. Still, it’s hard to appreciate all Under Siege has to offer with so much dying going on.

Under Siege bewijst met een goede besturing dat strategiespellen ook op de console goed speelbaar zijn. Waar de game strategische diepgang mist, maakt dat het goed door een beroep te doen op je snelle tactische beslissingen en een hoge moeilijkheidsgraad. De leercurve had alleen wel iets minder steil mogen zijn.

Game Chronicles (Jun 26, 2011)
Finally, adding some longevity to the game, Under Siege includes a fairly powerful level editor that's at least on par with most PC games. While the game's light on actual strategy and heavy on micromanagement and instant to instant tactics, it's still not a bad choice for people looking for quick, RTS-style skirmishes on the PS3.

PlayStation Lifestyle (Jun 15, 2011)
When the dust settles from battle, Under Siege is an RTS game that deviates from the formula most of us have grown accustomed to, and plays more like a dungeon crawler. Lacking in buildings or resources, players will be left to manage troops real-time in an unforgiving world where enemies come from all angles, and players must stay on their toes at all times. PlayStation Move adds to the experience and the online/offline modes are fun – that is if you can find a game online. Editing current maps or creating new ones gives players the tools to get creative, but the ghost town that is the online mode doesn’t give too much incentive to do so. If you are in the market for an RTS experience that will test your mettle and only lightly dent your online wallet, then Under Siege is a game you want to look into. Those wanting something that stays closer to the traditional formula of games like Starcraft won’t find much comfort here.

Under Siege is a good game that provides a few quick battles and some very tough challenges. It has some off-putting quirks, but Under Siege can still be a captivating game.

With a slightly less uncompromising approach, Under Siege could have been a great gateway drug for those otherwise resistant to the allure of RTS - especially with multiplayer and level editing waiting in the wings for those who really get into it. As it stands, though, Under Siege is a game that requires a degree of patience and tolerance before it truly clicks. If you have the required resolve, there's plenty to admire.

Edge (Jun 02, 2011)
Under Siege may be a downloadable game, but it’s certainly not throwaway. It’s engaging and, if the controls can be mastered and the bugs forgiven, a satisfying sampler of RTS thrills for the uninitiated, and a stamina test for anyone who thinks they’re hard enough.

4Players.de (Jun 16, 2011)
(...) Under Siege ist überraschend hart für ein Strategiespiel, das auf der Konsole erscheint. Normalerweise haben gerade solche Brocken per se einen Stein in meinem Wertungsbrett. Aber in diesem Fall entsteht auf Dauer zu viel Frust und der Anspruch nicht aufgrund fordernder KI oder taktischer Tiefe, sondern aufgrund der schnöden Übermacht des Gegners. Letztlich trübt dieses ewige Trial&Error das Spielgefühl. Die Seed Studios meistern zwar die Steuerung, ihnen gelingen trotz technischer Probleme von Rucklern bis zum Absturz auch einige ansehnliche Landschaften und Einheiten. Sie scheitern auch nicht in erster Linie an der langweiligen Story, sondern vor allem an den armseligen Möglichkeiten im Gelände sowie der Führung – man kann kaum etwas abseits der Attacke planen, es gibt weder Hinterhalte noch Haltungen, so dass irgendwann nervige Automatismen greifen und das Ganze zum Actiongeschnetzel mit der Aktivierung von ein paar Sonderfähigkeiten mutiert.

Under Siege è uno strategico poco più che sufficiente. L’idea di sfruttare intensivamente il Move è sicuramente vincente, ma il prodotto si scontra con alcuni difetti purtroppo capaci di pregiudicare l’esperienza in più casi. Multiplayer, editor e meccaniche semplici ma soddisfacenti salvano comunque Under Siege dalla catastrofe. Purtroppo la sua natura ibrida non lo rende consigliabile né agli amanti del genere, né ai neofiti. Consigliato solo a chi vuole godersi a tutti i costi un titolo tattico che sfrutti il Move.

IGN (Jun 15, 2011)
Under Siege totes an online mode, and it felt a little more even-keeled to me than the campaign. In fact, I won my best-of-three encounter with a random player online 2-0, which surprised me considering how badly I was getting beat in the campaign even when I dropped the difficulty level. Under Siege also has a split-screen competitive mode if you want to play with a friend (or foe) locally. There's PlayStation Move support, which seems to make sense, but doesn't work well at all. You'll find that the DualShock controller works just fine here. Then again, you'll also find that controls are the least of this game's issues.
 
Gameplay (Benelux) (Jun 24, 2011)
Under Siege heeft een fantasy verhaaltje van dertien in een dozijn en het is jammer genoeg niet mogelijk om een gewelddadige kok te controleren die na elke kill plechtig "I also cook!" debiteert, maar met de gameplay zit het verrassend goed.
