    Not being able to save your game sucks because you could lose your mothership right at the end of a mission and you have to replay the entire mission over again.

  1. Genesis Rising may be fun for some but I think most people will find a little boring, especially harvesting ships. It seems like eons can pass you by while you're fuelling up.

    The gene-stealing and blood-drinking theme makes for an interesting concept with great gameplay implications. But the bottom line is that as a game, Genesis Rising sucks, both literally and figuratively.
  3. Genesis Rising presents many great ideas, but not enough attention was placed on unit management.
