Informace o hře

In the space of fifty years, Earth changed from a planet on cusp of a challenging future to a world a breath away from lifelessness and plunged into an apocalyptic time of ecological disaster, global warfare and the meltdown of human civilization. This is the time of the Maelstrom. In this ravaged world, the planet's dwindling resources have divided what remains of mankind in two: the urban freedom fighting 'Remnants' and the technologically advanced 'Ascension'. Now they must wage war against a new threat, the invasion of a savage alien race, the Hai-Genti, and each other in a desperate struggle for supremacy and survival. Through the game's missions, take command from different viewpoints and employ faction-specific tactics and weaponry to achieve your objectives. Complete with the ability to terraform landscapes and transform units, Maelstrom provides gamers with the power to harness the forces of nature in the most frantic, destructive, action-packed RTS game yet.

  • A stunning mix of action-packed RTS missions set in a totally destructible and immaculately realised environment.
  • A devastated future Earth becomes the battleground as a divided human race fights for survival against alien invaders.
  • Through the game, players control each of the game's three factions - the Remnants, Ascension and the alien Hai-Genti - each with unique identities, strengths and tactics.
  • Modify the terrain and use the elements as a strategic weapon. Create valleys, carve out lakes, freeze water, melt ice, create tornadoes and even control the wind.
  • Characters grow experience and level up with new abilities as you progress through the game.

Good game. Has few flaws, but it is certainly not bad. All 3 races are different, but also look familiar to the zerg-protoss-terran stuff. Still game feels unique. You can also control the commander in 3rd person!
And last thing. Steam says it is SP only. But there is LAN (online service was shut down ages ago) still have'nt tested it, but it should work well. It's a good game if you like RTS, and is worth the money especially on sale.

this game has decent graphics and interface for its time, each faction is controlable, and has their own units units and strategy. its a game worth looking into, unless your not an RTS fan.

Despite its buggyness, this game has a few features that you wont find anywhere else, im assuming its failure to sell well seals its fate however.



Also, these negative reviews are funny

1. LAN works, gamespy shutdown, not the games fault

2. The UI is fine for a company who normally dosent make strategy games.

3. Windows 8 has issues with almost all games older then 2012.

Great concept and amazing game, but replay value is limited. The story is good, the mechanics are great, but it lacks replay value... It's worth at least playing once though.

While this game does have some interesting things they tried to do, I feel that it has lost in some of the most basic elements of an RTS. Whether this is a result of lack of polish or overemphasis on a few key features, the result is a game that just feels weak. Leaving aside cinematics, vocals and dialog, from the very beginning, the command UI feels frustrating. There is no feeling of control over an engagement; your infantry will wander around and do whatever they want. They'll watch complacently while a teammate is mowed down five feet away, and one guy will take a jog around three sides of a building to rejoin the squad after you moved them to an adjacent corner. Any attempt at strategy is pointless, and blobbing soldiers is really the only thing you can do. The game's age isn't an excuse; there are many games much older than this one that have better playability. The Ground Control series comes to mind.

Run,.... Run as far away from this game as possible. The game is buggy (for me the game got stuck each time there was some kind cutscene or longer speech from npc or "narrator". then i had to alt-tab out and back for the sound to continue). The gameplay is not very good. The controle of your units is not very good.

All in all a waste of money - Thank the powers that be that i got the game on a sale and didn't pay full price.

I dont understand how the devs managed to make so uninteresting game, feels half baked, the gameplay is very poor, there are other better games as mentioned in internet game reviews. Only interesting thing is terrain manipulation, but that will entertain for few minutes, then what?

Yea i dont recommend this game because two things
1. its not very intristing and is very difficult to catch on to, even for a person who has been playing strategy games there whole life...
2. You can not play on multiplayer for some dumb reason which i hope they fix than i may change my review...

This game is just, I don't know, unfinshed. The camera is like you're operating RC helicopter with one hand and the features dont seem to ever come into play. Dont waste your money on this.

It's like the developers have never seen a classical strategy game in their life before.
This is a very basic game, feels like it was developed by a group of bored friends with only a little time/knowledge on their hands.
UI doesn't spread to wide screen but stays where it would be on 4:3, "A" hotkey doesn't exist, commanding the teams feels unnatural... This just isn't what I expected and got bored too soon...
