  1. An amateurish mess with a painful campaign mode and only a few novel ideas to be proud of.
  2. Maelstrom can't even get the basics right, and the few features that sound interesting on paper end up being completely useless.
  3. There's absolutely no reason to put up with the frustration of doing the simplest of tasks in order to check out the futuristic abilities that you'll eventually command here. [Mar 2007, p.105]
  4. Maelstrom will practically feel like a nostalgic trip down memory lane with all of the bugs you knew and loathed.
  5. 30
    The bottom of the barrel for real-time strategy games.

    Very fun and innovative game to play. With a bit more polish to the pathfinding this game would be a 10.
