A very satisfying strategy experience. I recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone who enjoyed the "Front Mission" series or "Carnage Heart," and other wargaming fans should get a kick out of it as well, both its combat system and the involved world-building that surrounds it.
A solid title, featuring a believable and interesting storyline, plenty of missions to work through, and even good graphics. However, it can get very tedious at times, testing the patience of the most tolerant of gamers.
Being time consuming, this game may not be for the passive gamer, but for anyone who is willing to put in the energy, Ring of Red will provide a rich experience filled with both great tactics and a wonderful story.
Despite slow and repetitive gameplay and the lack of a compelling story, the premise is cool and the low-tech mech shootouts are tense. Ring of Red will be hypnotically fun to some and sleep-inducing to others; rent first.
