  • Summary: SunAge is a real-time strategy game where the player can experience immersive gameplay with 3 different races, each with their own arsenal of units, buildings and upgrades. The game takes place in a futuristic setting across 2 different worlds, ranging from a lush alien planet to desolate wastelands and through industrial cities...SunAge is upon us - the solar system is dying. With Earth teetering on the brink of extinction, human Federals and mutant-gene Raak-Zun are battling for control of its dwindling resources. Then, into this savage conflict step the mysterious Sentinel, exploiting superior technology that opens gateways to an alien and resource-rich planet. An epic clash is set to unfold, and along with it the mystery of a sinister creature that lurks at the very heart of their troubles. [Lighthouse Interactive] Expand

  1. A mildly recommended title for the singleplayer crowd. I’m not sure if competitive gamers will find anything new or exciting in the game’s multiplayer maps, but I really enjoyed the scripted pacing of the singleplayer campaign.
  2. The main problem of SunAge is that without the patches released, the game is a disaster.
  3. All in all this is a game that I still feel has potential. All the right aspects are there, but the spit and polish is missing the spit.
  4. It's no fun beating up on the little guy, but whoever green-lighted the release of SunAge surely must have known that the release code was beta at best.
  5. When I first started playing Sun Age, I felt a pang of nostalgia for the way games used to be, but it was quickly replaced by the feeling that this would have been a broken title even back then.
  6. Well and truly eclipsed by the passage of RTS history. [Feb 2008, p.79]
  7. SunAge is a terrible RTS, lacking definition, originality, or fun, wrapped in a half-arsed story. Don't even think about it. [Mar 2008, p.82]

    Terrible game. It's buggy, unintuitive, has unfriendly AI, and overall a complete waste of time. It insulted my intelligence to play this game. This is a pure CASH GRAB, do not buy. Expand
