    Its capped at 28-30 fps for literally no reason. I truly wish I could find some way to disable this ridiculous locked framerate, but that'sIts capped at 28-30 fps for literally no reason. I truly wish I could find some way to disable this ridiculous locked framerate, but that's not even the worst thing about "Paraworld." It manages to hardly reinvent anything RTS-wise, which means if you've played the Empire Earth games or Warcraft, you're probably going to see some obvious similarities. This is unfortunate, since I was under the impression that the game was about ACTUAL dinosaurs- not tribes of cavemen or a terribly generic single player campaign with the worst voice acting I've yet to hear in a game from this genre (which is saying a lot). I would like to spend more time with the game, but it will be from its skirmish modes, not its single player, as that has left me with a very sour feeling about the entire game so far. I will give it props for utilizing combat mechanics a "little" bit differently and trying a few new things, but its not exactly a good clone of anything nor is it original enough to set itself apart from far better titles from the same year i.e. Company of Heroes. Again, its a shame. The game never really had a chance, but this is why the industry is all about timing these days and when you release a game into a market like the RTS genre at present- you're just going to get eaten up.

    Well, this game did not have recognition, and it should.
    You are thrown into a world where dinosaurs roam the land and different tribes wage war on each other for the control of resources (wood, rock and food). Each of the three tribes have distinctly units and buildings and their own tamed dinosaurs. Mounted rhinos, war-mammoths, prehistoric...steam-warships, guarding water-snakes the list of original ideas is endless !

    Finally, an excellent RTS Ubisoft should do a Paraworld 2.. without spoiling the good ideas, wich remains very good today.

    ParaWorld is a thoroughly enjoyable RTS. the interesting setting, units, and faction differences make for a decently solid core gameplay. TheParaWorld is a thoroughly enjoyable RTS. the interesting setting, units, and faction differences make for a decently solid core gameplay. The script on teh other hand... well, it's funny for all the wrong reasons. after the first mission, the tough, gruff-talking scientist's dialogue devolves into (no exaggeration) non-stop surfer slang. I understand teh decision in a way, he's clearly supposed to be the "American" of the trio, and they decided to do this by combining a deep voice and surfer slang, and it comes off as not "American," but rather "Someone's Dad trying to be cool but failing miserably." Overall though, ParaWorld is worth the time to play. Full Review »
