    Overall, it's pretty much what you'd expect in an expansion: more stuff. And even if that stuff isn't well thought-out, there's enough of it here that High Treason is well worth your time and money.
  2. High Treason is a great game all around, but will most likely not gain the attention of most gamers, due to Atari’s muted response Direct Action. Without more online players, and with other competing modern-warfare RTS’s, High Treason is likely to slip under the radar, never gaining the popularity it deserves.

    It's still a mimic of "Command & Conquer" at heart, and it still screws up some basic stuff. [May 2006, p.80]
  4. That there are a couple more modes for fighting other humans underlines that this is a pack that exists primarily for those who play online - and without even giving a decent experimentation zone to play with the new possibilities of the ships without embarrassing yourself in front of a peer by crashing into a pier. Or something.

    Unbelievable game- sacrifices some realism (i.e. no US carriers or F-22s, and F-117s can be accessed by all) for balancing but the campaign Unbelievable game- sacrifices some realism (i.e. no US carriers or F-22s, and F-117s can be accessed by all) for balancing but the campaign is great fun and the single player is emjoyable no matter how many times you play it. A very accurate modern RTS with detailed combat on land, sea and air, and a very good buy. Full Review »

    Cool Game and would recommend it to any hard core RTS fan looking for something new. The graphis are amazing. Anything from the explosins to Cool Game and would recommend it to any hard core RTS fan looking for something new. The graphis are amazing. Anything from the explosins to the water effects will stun you. The story is a little flaky but the gameplay is great. Full Review »
