  • Summary: Prepare for Battle. Ground Control II: Operation Exodus is a real-time 3D action strategy set in a distant and futuristic universe. The game mainly focuses on explosive combat missions where the player will control squads of infantry, tanks, artillery and helicopters as the story unfolds. [Vivendi Universal] Expand

  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.
  3. A brilliant game. Even though at no point is the Terran Empire playable, the Virons and their unique melding technology (two units can be ‘melded’ together to create a different unit) makes up for this loss by adding a new level to the strategy.
  4. Offers a fantastic alternative to the traditional RTS formulae we have all trotted through a hundred times already. It delivers an extremely slick and complete package that should appeal to non-RTS fans as well as "C&C" veterans.
  5. Although I personally prefer to have myself a nice little base I can call home, with turret defenses tracking the moves of all my enemies before they even see my base, this was a nice step away from the norm.
  6. A beautiful RTS with solid single- and multiplayer gameplay. What more can you ask for? [Oct 2004, p.76]
  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]

    The game is perfect, exellent story, good characters, lots of units and shooting, just perfect. Camera is great when you used to it, gameplay is 100% pure fun and best part of this game is story ....I will say no more, play it... Expand

    Best graphics strategy series. Always in my memory. I don't think about gameplay because of its really stunning graphics (good optimised either). Graphic measure. Iconic. I regret this game series died. (same as GC1) Expand

    While the graphics and gameplay are nice, the game's true strength is in its emotionally moving story, something that so many strategy games lack. Highly recommended even 8 years later. Expand
