Acerca de este juego

En el transcurso de cincuenta años, la Tierra pasó de ser un planeta orientado hacia el futuro a ser un mundo desolado, sumergido en un apocalipsis y desastre ecológico, con guerras mundiales y la destrucción de la raza humana. Es la era de Maelstrom. En este mundo devastado, a medida que los recursos han ido escaseando, la raza humana ha quedado dividida en dos facciones: los 'Remnants' por un lado, que luchan por la libertad de las ciudades, y los 'Ascension' por otro, que están más desarrollados tecnológicamente. Ahora tienen que enfrentarse a una nueva amenaza, es decir, la invasión de una raza alienígena, la Hai-Genti, y seguir luchando el uno contra el otro por la supremacía y la supervivencia. Tomarás el control desde distintos puntos y emplearás tácticas y armas específicas de cada facción para alcanzar tus objetivos. Maelstrom da a los jugadores la oportunidad de transformar unidades y paisajes, de desatar las fuerzas de la naturaleza en el juego de estrategia en tiempo real más frenético, destructivo y repleto de acción.
  • Una mezcla explosiva de acción en un ambiente totalmente destruible creado a la perfección
  • Un planeta Tierra devastado se convierte en el campo de batalla para los humanos que luchan contra los alienígenas
  • Los jugadores podrán controlar las tres facciones: los Remnants, los Ascension y los alienígenos Hai-Genti, cada uno con identidades, tácticas y puntos fuertes únicos
  • Modifica el territorio y usa los elementos como armas estratégicas. Crea valles, excava lagos, congela el agua, derrite el hielo, crea tornados e incluso controla el viento
  • Los personajes ganan experiencia y obtienen nuevas habilidades a medida que avances en el juego

Pretty unique game with terra forming as part of the strategy.
It's fun with a challenging campaign and three very different armies to play.
The only negative is I had to play in windowed mode to get around a bug that happens on start up, do that and you're set with a really well balanced RTS that's not a clone copy of a better game.

this is one of those games you want to like but can't.
it was released in 2007 and that might be part of its issues running.
it runs on something called vista run time. this is something i have never seen before so maybe thats part off it.
i have never seen a game where you give the a.i. orders and it just does what it wants to.
you tell the group to go west it goes east. the group doesnt even stay together each one just wonders around on its own.
in this case you couldnt even have a fight that you want cause part of them will fight and the rest walk away.
the game will hang at cut videos. you will lose sound and i had to go to task manager to even get it to shut down.
i really wanted a good turn based game but this isnt it.

This game reminds me of some of the old school RTS games. A few probles with pathfinding, a few problems with building spacing, nice story line.

I recommend this game in spite of its flaws as it is fun to play, You just need to be willing to put up with old school quirks.

Good:
very unique, fun gameplay that I havent seen in an RTS before.
AI can build your base for you while you focus on the combat.
the three races are suprisingly different from one-another.
The terrian is dynamic, and can be manipulated to build walls, ditches, and foxholes.

Bad:
Some players need to use a glitch just to get to the main menu.
Everyone in the game moves at half the speed of smell.
One of the races (ascension) has a completely broken AI.
Ascension takes forever to get the cool units.
The direct control ability, where you take direct control of a hero unit as a third-person shooter is god-aweful.
The most important resource, water, takes forever to get despite most of the battles taking place near the ocean.

Conclusion: an interesting game with too many flaws to make it "good" Definitely worth picking up if you can find it for cheap. Anything over $5 is too much.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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...

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?

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.

Maelstorm have a nice plot, nice units and gameplay mixing rts and a short of tps. But there is too many bugs, the moviments are bad and the units move for themselvs.
So, i don't recommend this game if you don't have a lot of patience with bugs and bad moviments.
