  • Summary: Amazons & Aliens has no lasting appeal if you're experienced with other empire-building real-time strategy games.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 1 out of 8
  2. Negative: 4 out of 8
  1. It is not overly challenging in terms of resource management, but the strangeness of this world’s inhabitants and their civilizations make this a nice little program.
  2. It's more amusing than "1602 A.D." because of the differences in each race but gameplay is strikingly similar.
  3. While the game played rock stable and had bells and whistles galore, the lack of needed documentation gave me constant fits of frustration.
  4. But the FPS of the characters rendered their movements choppy and the general artistic schemes – the pudgy blue Pimmons and boringly animated Amazons – were less funny than they were just not to be taken seriously.
  5. 43
    Ham-handed implementation and lackluster production values obscure what few clever devices are buried within.
  6. Tedious micromanagement kills the fun before the going gets good.
  7. Klutzy controls and instructions, tiresome micromanagement, and uninspired audio are wearying once the novelty of the game has worn off.
