AnonymousMC7This game had a big potential but the publishers didn't do a good job, and the developers could have done a little better on the graphics.
Nevertheless, the game is still great, and you can download the free Add-on (a must!) the multiplayer experience is very good, it will make your heart beat and it will keep you hyper all the time, it's a shame that sales were not that good and the community is rather small, or many of them are playing through private IPs. The game has a dedicated server they added with the add-on to replace the gamespy system which was a terrible mistake. A big plus is the MAP editor, which is awesome, and will expand the game life greatly. You can create really cool maps for multiplayer and singleplayer, there's some people already doing so.

PaulClarke2Unit selection and control is a nightmare. IN the heat of battle it's next to impossible to control what really needs to be controlled. Units mix and merge, one arong turn and entire squads are wiped in nano-seconds.
This may be realistic, but it doesn't make for fun gameplay, and as far as realism goes, other games do it better.
Overall, could be a decent game, but a very ropey control system ruins the day for all but the most masochitic players.… Full Review »
