    Competently put together, with some lovely graphics at times, but totally lacking in any originality, personality or a reason to buy it.

    Not much innovation, but a solid 3D RTS that purists and online addicts should enjoy. [Oct 2000, p.139]
  3. An often entertaining and graphically stunning title that fans of the genre will want to play.
  4. My only major beef with the DR2 is that the problems of unit pathfinding that plague just about every other strategy game are alive and kicking here as well.
  5. "Dark Reign 2" might fail to stand tall with titles like "Ground Control," "Homeworld," and "Starcraft."
  6. There's nothing all that special about the units or the missions, and there's absolutely no innovation to the gameplay itself.

    If you mastered and loved the previous "Dark Reign" you will probably despise this game despite its beauty.
  8. Lack of game speed control, poor pathfinding and AI, and other problems put Dark Reign 2 at the lower end of the scale for RTS games.

    A solid if unassuming 3D real-time strategy that will score well with "Dark Reign" and multiplayer fans.

    Well balanced single player campaign caters to noobies to serious RTS strategists, on and offline multi is good, quite a good looking RTS for Well balanced single player campaign caters to noobies to serious RTS strategists, on and offline multi is good, quite a good looking RTS for its time. DR2 loses points however due to slow game speed, more lack of a game speed bar at all, very small unit and build trees. Full Review »

    This game is one of the best games I have played. I especially like the multiplayer part of it.
