  1. This game will become the benchmark by which all such titles will be measured. The game’s AI is strong enough to present a challenge and the lack of base and harvest management is wonderfully refreshing.
  2. Basically, what all this goodness translates to is a fantastically well-balanced and tremendously fun fast-paced tactical RTS.

    I've had a blast playing Ground Control II: Operation Exodus. It's fast and fun and was certainly one of the most entertaining games that I've played in quite some weeks.
  4. Eminently likeable; as moreish as chocolate kittens, more addictive than smack-sprinkled kebabs. All the key ingredients of an RTS are here: well-balanced varied units, interesting missions, a surprising plot.
  5. Massive Entertainment have once again upped the bar for RTS graphics, as Ground Control 2 is one of the most astonishingly gorgeous titles around at the moment.
  6. While Operation Exodus is not without flaws, it offers modes and innovations you won't find in competing real-time strategy games and is a very refreshing take on the genre. It also looks gorgeous.
  7. The real missed opportunity in Ground Control II is that such great visuals are built into a game design that smothers you in too much busy work to enjoy them. [Sept 2004, p.64]

    Very fun and challenging game online, the sp is pretty good too. Only one thing I don't like is that at times there are some pathfinding issues.

    Great game. Incredible graphics even on low-end machines. Love the dropship which breaks the defensive C&C generals rut, but having some Great game. Incredible graphics even on low-end machines. Love the dropship which breaks the defensive C&C generals rut, but having some elements of building would have given the gameplay a welcome change. Apart from this, and some annoyances with the camera angle over low terrain, this game is highly polished. Expand

Had all but given up on RTS's until this came along. Bases-Smaces I say! All you exciting town planner types might miss the base building, not the rest of us though, just gets in the way of the real man battle action! Just wish I had broadband so I could play multiplayer.
