  • Summary: In the 21st century, earth has been hit by a mysterious huge dark object called 'Shard Zero'. It released a plague that disrupted the very nature of space and life. WorldShift is set thousands of years later, when our civilization is no more than a fading myth. The remnants of Human civilisation developed a new culture and now live in 5 mega-cities, struggling every day for the precious resources they need to survive. The rest of Earth is populated by the Tribes, successors of early humans that were affected by the Plague. [Playlogic] Expand

  1. Well, this game certainly wasn’t able to shift my world enough to earn itself a thoroughly positive verdict. Sure, it’s not all fire and brimstone but frustratingly hectic battles and some excessive blunders concerning the gameplay managed to spoil it for good.
  2. If there were any noteworthy singleplayer campaign Worldshift could be an almost flawless game. Unfortunately the one player part is a tedious mission-to-mission experience. High score for this game comes only for excellent multiplayer variability. [Oct 2008]
  3. Let's face it, every RTS lover is waiting for Starcraft 2 and Red Alert 3. But don't get too focused on these two titles, because you'll miss out on, for example, WorldShift. A strategy game than looks more than fine and plays like a perfect mix between RTS and RPG. Waiting for a triple A title will be easy with WorldShift.
  4. All of this is such a shame, because WorldShift is really a beautiful game with an intriguing premise. The levels are packed with interesting scenery, and the lighting and special effects are truly impressive. With a little better balance and some additional tweaking, this could have been a really memorable real-time strategy title.
  5. Impressive multiplayer modes make WorldShift an engaging old-school real-time strategy game, but bugs and an afterthought solo campaign dampen the appeal.
  6. I see Worldshift as a proof of concept for a multiplayer strategy game that has the potential to be something special, but it still has a ways to go before it actually gets there.
  7. 50
    The worst thing about WorldShift is its unfulfilled potential.
