    It's really not a bad game. It's hampered by a few flaws pertaining to the interface but beyond that, it's an enjoyable game. It's certainly a lot better than the hundreds (exaggeration) of RTS games out there, but while it isn't as good as "Battle Realms," it's still worth checking out.

  1. In the AI department, Dark Planet is consistently inconsistent.
  2. Could be a solid RTS if not for the lack of story and the cluttered and variant interface.
  3. Call it a "StarCraft" homage, call it a "Starcraft" clone, Dark Planet is still a good, entertaining RTS. [June 2002, p.90]
