    Paraworld is the game i will always love. After all these years, i can play it without problems, and with some bug fix for W7 and mappack made by the community.
    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. 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 »

    This game seems to have been highly overrated by some. Although it has some nice cut-scenes it is still nothing special. I was hoping for it to be a fresh look at the RTS genre but it just adds some uninspiring features to the everyday RTS framework. The unit levelling is poorly thought out with there being little benefit to improving your basic troops (as there is a such a small unit limit that you will be forfeiting more advanced troops). The plot of the single player mode is really not worth mentioning as the missions are far from involved and you end up just playing many levels as if they were skirmishes. I'm am sorry to say that I do not have many good comments to make about this games as it has been so disappointing. The graphics are nice but are dwarfed by the graphics and unit animation displayed in Company of Heroes (an RTS released around the same time). Full Review »
