  1. Achingly beautiful, eccentric combat in the clouds.
  2. 80
    It's rare that something that truly strives for originality, and even rarer that it succeeds with any degree of success. Project Nomads does so in spades. Bravo!
  3. Has a great storyline and is set in an amazing world, but is only a typical RTS/FPS title.
  4. Repetitive and even tedious at times. Fundamentally, there's no gameplay depth whatsoever...Other than that, this title represents a refreshing boost of creativity to the gaming industry.
  5. It's relatively fun in small doses, but Project Nomads doesn't live up to the potential that its unusual design suggests.
  6. 63
    A brilliantly stylized but bland, linear, tedious, and sometimes even broken action title with many boring tasks that apparently need to be completed in as unexciting a manner as humanly possible.

    Although it offers a mix of strategy, vehicle-based shooting, and third-person action, none of these elements surpass mediocrity due to the lukewarm gameplay. [Feb 2003, p.84]

    Definitely an ambitious project, but unfortunately, it's only the floating-island concept and not the actual gameplay that will make it stick in the minds of gamers. [Feb 2003, p.80]
  9. 57
    An ambitious genre-bending title killed by one tedious mission after another.
  10. Any good feelings generated during the game's opening and initial sequence were quickly squashed by the game's numbing tedium... Looks great, no filling.
  11. Can be an entertaining, if quirky, diversion.
  12. Once your island is set up, you can tackle the missions. Well, tackle may be too strong of a word, trudge may be more correct.
  13. Computer Games Magazine

    The canned plot does all the driving and you're just along for the dull weird ride. [Feb 2003, p.71]
