    It is indeed unique in what it offers, but being a game of it's gener offers nothing new. It's your typical rts game and more about micro management than anything, every unit tied to specific uses some units with further uses. However the gameplay is verry static, as glorious graphics are they do the actual game itself little good. If your into uniqeness, I recommend it but not It is indeed unique in what it offers, but being a game of it's gener offers nothing new.

    Awful tutorial, dull and obscure story, repetitive gameplay. Nice ideas - the units are genuinely fun - but the game is a resounding "meh" for me.

  1. Delivers a high-concept sci-fi setting, a load of innovative gameplay, and beautiful graphics. And though it falls short in a few areas, it's still a breath of fresh air in a genre in need of it.
  2. While Perimeter's gameplay doesn't always work perfectly, it's refreshing to play a strategy title that stands out from the crowd both in its concept and its graphics. If you're fed up with cookie-cutter RTS games, give it a try.
  3. And even though you might have that sense of familiarity while playing the game, almost every aspect seems original, both in its presentation and its implementation.
