  • Summary: It is the 7th of December, 2150 and the Earth is quickly coming to an end. An ongoing feud between the Eurasian Dynasty and the United Civilized States has left the planet in disarray - people are hungry, resources are scarce and agricultural production has stopped. But the situation is getting even worse. A series of nuclear explosions near Antarctica have altered the Earth's orbit around the sun, making glaciers melt and the seas rise to threatening levels and the catastrophe has been worsened by meteorite showers that have buried whole parts of the planet. Thanks to a group of scientists from the Lunar Corporation, a long forgotten colony on the Moon, many people have managed to escape the terror and make their way to the nearby safety of Mars, but an unlucky few - the Lost Souls - have been left behind. And now they are seeking revenge. [Strategy First] Expand

  1. If it's a strategic challenge you're after, Lost Souls might well be the game for you, and we don't hesitate before recommending it for anyone with the pang for tactics.
  2. It packs plenty of punch for series newbies. [Holiday 2002, p.107]
  3. It’s one of the most detailed, old-school RTS titles we’ve come across since "StarCraft."
  4. The game is, admittedly, a bit slow compared to games like StarCraft, but it’s more complex than that, as well. Either way, Lost Souls is a game that tries new things, and even if they don’t always seem that great, at least it’s a breath of fresh air.
  5. Earth 2150 trilogy fans will be overwhelmed with this game. The rest of you would be better off with something else.
  6. Its many positives cannot escape the pull of its non-intuitive interface and plodding pace.
  7. Just a bunch of single-player missions that could have been made with the scenario editor. [Jan 2003, p.118]
