    This game is really terrible. I can see the concept this design team was trying to accomplish but this is a good idea done badly; the 'whip select' interface is a huge burden on game play and very disorienting. Accurately manuevering around the 3-D environments while your perspective is constantly changing is next to impossible. The character models are also jerky and sometimes This game is really terrible.

    The concept is interesting, but it's just too difficult to control. The lack of an overhead view, coupled with the heavily multi-leveled maps, makes it far too difficult to coordinate your troops in any meaningful way.

    This is the worst game I've ever played (over 20+ years of gaming). The interface is a crime. You can't freely move the camera. You can't hotkey or easily move between squads you have to flick (whip) your mouse towards them and hope you get the right one. The path finding is hopeless. The squad sizes are capped at 3 per group, and took random mashing of keys to figure out how to group atThis is the worst game I've ever played (over 20+ years of gaming). The interface is a crime. You can't freely move the camera. You can't hotkey or easily move between squads you have to flick (whip) your mouse towards them and hope you get the right one. The path finding is hopeless. The squad sizes are capped at 3 per group, and took random mashing of keys to figure out how to group at all, since the options menu has no keyboard controls listed. Combat is rubbish and unsatisfying. Unit uses aren't explained very well and units generally seem fairly useless. They are cheap throw away units, but you have to exert so much effort fighting the camera, interface, pathing, grouping, etc to use them it's frustrating to spend 2 minutes just moving them over the cumbersome terrain only for them to die. This is a game that ignores all the innovation in RTS and regresses back to 1988 in terms of game design. This will sit proudly at the top of my list of worst games ever. Expand

    This game is terrible beyond all reason. The controls make the game a total mess and you have to micromanage the units at all times, which makes the game a total in most parts of the game.
    The story and voice acting is so utterly terrible that it makes C&C4 look like a damn masterpiece.

    Sometimes it takes several seconds before a unit responds to a command, and while the unit is moving it will often run in slow motion and damage can be done and taken before the unit is even in line of sight of the enemy. The AI is so terrible that units often forget what they were supposed to do, and instead of attacking the enemy they will just run around in circles like retards.

    Horrible, horrible and HORRIBLE game. It's a disaster and my experience with this game was far from meeting my expectations. DO NOT buy this game.

  1. Stormrise is, overall, a good game. Great ideas that lack the depth users expect from this genre, along with a whole new gameplay that requires a lot of experience and practice. make up for a game that only the hardcore RTS gamers will be able to enjoy.
  2. This frustrating, broken mess is one of the worst strategy games in years.

    There are so many incredible RTS games on the PC -- Stormrise is not one of them. Avoid it at all costs.
