    Where Eternal Forces does a great job is in the loads of biographies for what would normally be throwaway units. Granted, some of the bio information is strangely comical, but you end up caring about each character under your command. Sadly, there are far too many other characters that might be seen by some as astonishing stereotypes.
  2. An intriguing effort from a first time development company and it warrants a look.
  3. It’s overtones about religion and beliefs are something that some may be wary of and those people more than likely wouldn’t want to touch the game with a ten foot pole. Those that can look past that though, would have a pretty good time with the game despite its few flaws in gameplay.

    Unfortunately, the inconsistent behavior of your recruits means you'll spend more time fighting the interface than the Antichrist.
  5. An RTS with a couple of interesting variations. It is written in a religious setting, but is not preachy nor does it condone violence against the heathens. If anything, it discourages violence and intolerance. The game was just too complicated for me to enjoy. But, to be fair, I am an Old Fart and the game was written for the young, gamers crowd.

Difficult to understand objectives and the constant threat of making a minor mistake and having to relive the nightmarishly bad level again make this game a poor choice for anyone... However with a little TLC this game could be amazing. Full Review »

Then I found out it was real and knew that it had to be bad. It looks like what would happen if all those holy rollers who stand out on street corners every friday would make if they decided to make a video game. It gets a one only because of the humour factor. Full Review »

Granted it's not the best developed RTS out there, but it is the cleanest! And, finally a game that gives a real message about where you will be if you don't change your views and continue to follow the degradation of this world. Full Review »
