- Summary: EARTH 2160 is the official sequel of the award winning, very popular and top selling EARTH series and continues the brand of "Earth 2140" and "Earth 2150." Only a few thousand humans managed to escape from the Earth before its collapse in 2150 A.D. They spent the next few years on the terra forming of the red planet, developing new technologies and building up new civilisations. Somehow each of the three fractions "Eurasian Dynasty", "United Civilised States" and "Lunar Corporation" did this independently and separately from each other - but in the year 2160 something strange happens in this new world. If ED, UCS and LC join forces or continue their old war against each other - is possibly now, up to the player. Beside the usual venues in the solar system, there are some strange looking locations: planets with moving and reflecting liquid surfaces. And beside the standard RTS - resource acquisition, base building and destruction of enemy bases, the year 2160 will have some adventure inspired tasks for the players. [Zuxxez]… Expand
TimL.May 25, 2006Awesome game! Fantastic graphics, great gameplay and a community that works with the developers. Buy it!
ChadlyApr 13, 2007Great Great Game! You have to spend some time with it though. I have personally experienced the intelligence of the A.I. They sent in a few planes to test out my defenses, when I saw them get shot down I didn't think twice, but about 4 minuets later they brought in a whole fleet, took down my air defense and also a big cannon. And then 10 seconds later they sent in there ground troops. The voices are horrible, but you do get used to them. And at first there were some technical issues (my units still get killed when put in a structure) but with the patches and a few tweaking it works. There are also some mods out there. To be honest, it is a bit rusty, but it is the best rusty strategy game I have played ever. In fact, I wish I could play it now, but I am at work and will have to wait.… Expand
MichaelC.May 15, 2006it has the beautiful ghrapis and it has non-stop action.You can even customize your own vehicles! What can't you do?
MartinGrecaApr 11, 2006Not as complex as the prequel.
But still one of the most innovative rts games lately. Plus the great engine, both showing good effects on low performance systems, and the currently most amazing graphic in rts games for high performance systems.
Rts Fans will feel very comfortable with the 4 extreme different races (including Aliens, LC, ED and UCS), and the great Single Player part.
The Bugs wich were really disturbing in the beginning have been fixed after several patches.
Annoying things about this game are the less of care with wich reality pump and zuxxez are handling there costumers now and the missing of "Earth Net 2", wich has been promised a long time ago for this game.
The only way to play balanced in the mp mode is to use the "Reba Mod" wich you can get at http://www.insideearth.de/ . But Reality Pump has promised to distribute a new Patch including this Reba Beta and the Earth Net 2.
Another problem are the aliens wich aren't balanced in the mp mode.
You should first try the demo (wich can be downloaded at http://www.earth2160.com/) and then think about downloading this game.
All in all a great RTS game, especially for Single Player fans, the only really disturbing thing is the MP Part, wich will hopefully be fixed by Reality Pump in time.… Expand
SamoryS.Nov 3, 2005Good graphics, good perfomace, some what so so interface, complex, Very complex. Agents animation: Bad. Voices... ranges from 4 to 8. Give it a try.
GerardApr 13, 2006I played the demo version so hopefully some of the quirks are worked out of it. Positives: The game has beautiful graphics. Negatives: It9;s not a very refined game. It feels like Warcraft or Starcraft minus some of the small intangibles that can make a game either very smooth, interactive and fun or annoying. You have guys that you might consider your 'hero'. Your supposed to keep them alive but their life box is so small that you either have to zoom in or guestimate how much life they have left. This game could benefit from a 'help' button or a 'quick tips' section.… Expand
BigguySep 5, 2005Rubbish, too complex.
