  1. Value-wise, you can’t beat an expansion pack like this. It updates the graphics and furthers the story while giving players a solid strategic experience. That Sierra is basically giving it away free is a big plus.
  2. This game not only has everything that an add-on pack should have -- fresh units, a new campaign, and new multiplayer maps and modes -- but it has one thing that most don't: a goose-egg price tag.
  3. 80
    If you own the original Ground Control, and you don't send the five bucks in to get this game, you're seriously in danger of your children falling backwards on the evolutionary ladder.
  4. Fundamentally remains the same great strategy game as its predecessor.
  5. The best part is that, after the first few Krig-bound missions, much of the campaign takes place elsewhere in the galaxy in a variety of new planets and on new terrain effects.
  6. There are indeed few novelties. If somebody showed me the thing after a couple of months, I wouldn't be able to tell if it were the original game or the add-on.
  7. This is a good expansion, but for its time maybe not the best it could have been.
