    It bored me a bit. Without any real history or story behind the factions fighting, I just felt kind of disjointed the entire time I was playing.
  2. A been-there-done-that title that does pretty well by itself. [May 2002, p.93]
  3. A typical RTS with some atypical races. It would be a nice introduction to the newcomer to the genre, and veterans of this mode or warfare will find it challenging.
  4. It also has an interface that seems designed to shield you from actually playing the game.
  5. There's not an original idea in this competent but dull game's pretty little pre-programmed head. [June 2002, p.61]
  6. Could be a solid RTS if not for the lack of story and the cluttered and variant interface.
  7. A prime example of how amazing graphics can't make up for lackluster gameplay.

    Fantastic, ahead of it's time visuals. Under appreciated.
