Final Breakdown

Gameplay:

Can be fun to some people, but too much emphasis is based on resource management and making quick decisions under attack is very difficult. The battles are only decent and many control options are missing. There is no option for addons or extra maps or anything. The combat is too simplistic, just run in and kill. No planning or strategy is involved.

Graphics:

Graphics are almost depressing. Lack of detail, and pixelated. The units are sort of detailed, but they are all obstructed by the overhead view which limits view size. The screen resolution is a claustrophobic 800x600 and adding that interface bar on the side also kills more room.

Sound and Music:

Uninteresting sound effects kill the decent rating to get by the musical soundtrack, which also is very limited to only one song.

Multiplayer: N/A

None

AI Intelligence and Difficulty:

Not much to say about the AI, just that it's a bunch of trigger mechanisms by landing somewhere or another event. The enemy will just come and rush you and wipe you out as soon as possible.

Controls and Interface:

Difficult keyboard commands with virtually no faster way to get to your buildings and resource management. The interface on the right is extremely time consuming and lacks the speed to beat a crucial moment in the game.

Overall:

Just a subpar game. Might had been better if better graphics, control, and sound were implemented.
