    Very strange game, this. I'm all in favour of smaller developers, but I can't help but get the feeling the team behind APOX got so excited about having made the basis of a game that they forgot to polish it to the point where players could derive enjoyment from actually playing it... and just released it.

    The whole thing just seems a long way short of ready in that rather hard to
    Very strange game, this. I'm all in favour of smaller developers, but I can't help but get the feeling the team behind APOX got so excited about having made the basis of a game that they forgot to polish it to the point where players could derive enjoyment from actually playing it... and just released it.

    The whole thing just seems a long way short of ready in that rather hard to quantify way that I shall simply describe as "nothing feels right". The ammo and fuel supply systems are quite nice, but the pace at which they work just feels to slow. The complicated unit micro smacks of a load of ideas that sound cool on paper being implemented verbatim from the spec then never tweaked and battered into anything cohesive. The unit balance appears to have had a helping hand from rand(); , and the AI is very heavy on the Artificial and rather low on the Intelligence (with the former being a cheap attempt to make up for the latter).

    In short, avoid like the plague unless you're so heavily into RTS games that your live won't be complete without playing it, or are stuck with a choice of APOX or staring at blank wall.

    This game looked like it had a lot of potential, but really there was nothing new or novel about it. Your troops can't fight there way out of a wet paper bag without your constant micro management, generally combat is not very dynamic, and oh yeah, you need to be online to due the tutorials or skirmishes against the AI, which would be a lot more tolerable if you weren't constantlyThis game looked like it had a lot of potential, but really there was nothing new or novel about it.

    Finding good matches is not easy in APOX's sluggish community, however, and I cannot fathom why anyone should play this instead of the exponentially better games that it tries to emulate. [June 2011, p.77]

    Some interesting ideas can't save this dull, sloppy attempt at reinventing the RTS genre. [Apr 2011, p.56]

    Despite some interesting ideas and huge ambitions of its creators, APOX is just another low-budget RTS.
