    Stormrise isn't all that bad, really. I bought it for ten bucks and I have to say, looking at these reviews, it surpassed my expectations. Visuals are reasonable; nothing fancy, but they work. Gameplay could have been better: the game's controlled very slowly and the 'whip' system gets wonky and frustrating when you have a lot of soldiers on the battlefield.

Still, at these prices it's a cheap alternative for games like C&C, and it's quite enjoyable. The story's hit and miss, though. Expand

    Cumbersome controls and an ornery camera make any intriguing ideas irrelevant. [Apr 2009, p.115]

    Smarter than the average console RTS but not quite brilliant. [Apr 2009, p.70]

    A decent but unpolished strategy game built around a technological concept that only sort of works in any practical sense. An amiable attempt, but a far cry from victory.
