Final Breakdown


Can you handle gameplay that's no different from a 14 year old title?


The graphics are as solid as they can be, though it won't zoom in quite as far as one might like.

Sound and Music:

Enjoy the voice acting. Some of it's good, some of it's bad. The music is recycled.


Don't expect a challenge unless you crank the difficulty level way up.

Controls and Interface:

Between friendly AI set on "dumb as rocks" and the difficulty of selecting anything other than "units onscreen" or "all units", the interface proves that a controller simply can't do what a mouse and keyboard can.


If you really want to see the prequel storyline, rent it or wait for it to hit the bargain bin.
