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.
