  1. With its catchy graphics and refreshing gameplay ideas, it turned my skepticism into a full-fledged, addictive gaming experience.
  2. What it lacks in storyline depth and musical variety, it makes up for in addictive gameplay and detailed battle animations.

    Does the formula of giant robots and three-tiered combat succeed? Definitely. But there are a few quirks along the way to deal with, most notably the anemic unit pathfinding AI.

    A great RTS game with several nice wrinkles to distinguish it from the general morass that has become the norm recently.
  5. 80
    The real standout feature that sets this game apart is how players must manage their forces not only on the planet's surface, but also in the asteroid orbit above, and in the deep tunnels and caverns below.

I love the way how you build your robots, fight with them and maybe shoot of the arm of another robot to pick it up for you own and continue the fight with it. Full Review »

Intuitive and original... only thing missing... map editor. If you buy the game, know that the fights will be more reckless skirmishes than strategic manuvers like any other real time strategy games. The most fun I have gotten out of this game was probably just building a base with killer robots and make it look cool. You play in the skies, on the surface, and underground. Your robots also fly! Woosh. Sad to say, the giant androids are probably the only thing keeping this game alive. Full Review »

It also has 3 levels on the map (air, surface, underground) to fight on simultaneously. All in all it is a unique approach for a strategy game not seen elsewhere. Robot graphics, sounds and animations are nice, but the terrain is unfortunately rather dull. The interface is also a bit clunky and the game does have some bugs that never got patched, but overall it is still a great game. Full Review »
