Om dette spillet

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.

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.

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.
