    I played this game in beta and I was very disapointed. If you're looking for an online FPS, stay clear away from this one. The graphics are ok, kinda lacking for their time. Sound is average. There isnt much of a story. It kinda feels like a FPS comand and conquer game gone prehistoric times.

  1. If you're undaunted by the game's singular insistence on coordinated teamwork, and intrigued by its combination of shooter and real-time strategy elements, then Savage is worth checking out.

    A mediocre FPS combined with a mediocre RTS, where the units don't necessarily do as you tell them. The thinking behind the combination is pretty sound, but it falls victim to the classic problem with this sort of genre-spanning game - you can't take two sub-par games and make one good one.
  3. While it's fair to level some criticism at the lack of tutelage, and the combat is a bit divisive and unforgiving to begin with, you can't really blame the developer for Savage's biggest problem - the way it's played online. Given the right people and the right attitude, this is one of the finest multiplayer games of the year so far.
