IAs this title is now available through Steam, republished by Retroism, some explaining on my 8/10 could be of some use for some of you.
I have bought and played this game back in 1997 and, next to some Duke Nukem 3D and Civilization II, this little gem was one of my most frequently played games.
Uprising is a classic in a niche genre: mixed RTS with FPS in a futuristic setting with alien planets.
This game guarantees plenty of fun gaming hours, here's why:
- Sounds and graphics are outdated (1997, reaching the 20 years mark!), but they still have proper appeal as they were well designed, back in the days.
- No steep learning curve, you quickly get the hang of how to play.
- Challenging enough to make you put in some real effort.
- Upgrade system: upgrade your own vehicle (wraith) with better weapons and upgrade your base buildings. Earn the required credits by completing missions.
- Fight the enemy in your own wraith, swap view to a citadel (defense tower) in one of your bases and fight off an enemy attack, send in your (upgraded) soldiers, tanks and air units in a proper assault and take over another base.
- manage your credits income by building the right structures per base, manage defense of each base by building citadels and defense towers
- work your way through a vast number of planets and take them back, conquer.
Beware of one thing though: several gamers have reported crashes and requested refunds. Make sure you're up to date on what to expect from running this title on your machine.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.0Aug 20, 2016Looking back I can remember the frustrating initial release as it was bug ridden and felt like a BF3.5 and not a complete new title. But now,Looking back I can remember the frustrating initial release as it was bug ridden and felt like a BF3.5 and not a complete new title. But now, after 3 years, I have played more BF4 than BF Bad Company 2, and that title was (is) a gem and I considered it the new standard for how BF games should work. Although missing out on some excellent game mechanics and options from Bad Company 2, BF4 has become a gem too. It delivers on solid multiplayer game play and immense replay value through all unlocks, medals, classes and maps. Forget single player, that's an Easter egg they forgot to hide.… Expand
Average User Score: 5.2Nov 11, 2010I guess they just had to release this title before the big Christmas sales in order to cash in. This big a problem, being the incredibly laggyI guess they just had to release this title before the big Christmas sales in order to cash in. This big a problem, being the incredibly laggy and buggy multiplayer AND singleplayer with issues, should have and must have been tracked down and resolved after proper testing. They might fix this fast, and with a proper patch this will be a very entertaining title in both mp and sp, but Treyarch and Activision (and Steam?) deserve a "Boo!" on another failing opening week, especially on the poor quality of the PC edition.… Expand
