    This is one storm-chasing RTS that can't escape The Suck Zone. [Sept 2011, p.60]

    I would like to like that game because of its B-movie story and because of the natural-disaster-weapon. But as far as game design is concerned everything is just plain wrong: controls, AI and path finding.

    Elements of War has hardly any redeeming features to make it a worthy recommendation, and with all the high quality RTS titles already out for PC it is easily overshadowed.

    No matter how you slice it, Elements has very little to offer: If you prefer a top-notch strategy experience, stick with the essentials, like StarCraft 2, Shogun 2, and Dawn of War 2. If you want to play a great Kalypso-produced title, give Tropico 3 a try. And if you're just looking to play an RTS on the cheap, type "GemCraft Labyrinth" into Google. It's a free Flash-based tower defense game that's light years ahead of Elements of War in terms of fun and playability.
