I personally liked the game.I beat the whole story in 13 hours (that is killing every enemy on the map not just completeing each objective) and enjoyed every bit of it! Frist i'll tell you what i liked about the game: The story, the art style, and gameplay! I haven't read much about the story in other reviews but i like it and thats all ill say. The art style is supposed to look like you are in a computer world(kinda like tron) so it is really simple but kinda "cute" or cartoony. The game play is what everyone is talking about so first the problems.
I couldn't unplug my headset while playing the game or else an error would appear and it would crash.
The Darwinians are like cattle where they move in straight lines but if you use officers correctly then you're fine.
a bug happened where i couldn't build anything but restarting the game fixed that.
The first mission (not prolouge) is really boring and that deterrs many people.
Alot of game time for 1$ (currently 13hrs)
I thought the sound effects were funny.
Some stratiegic thought and tactics do go into this game. (its not just run at each other, get more units and repeat)
You unlock something at the end that increases the amount of time you could play it! ;)
There is alot more that i like but i must go to the counter arguments or problems.
"- Units with bizarre controls, like:
--- Left click to select
--- Left click to move
--- Left click and hold to to special action 1
--- Left click and hold near the unit to do special action 2"
I don't know what game he was playing but you do use left click to select and move but you hold right click to shoot and while holding right click if you left click they do their special.

"--- Don't worry, though, because your units will randomly exit and reenter the turret every couple of seconds! Even during battle!
--- Also, you can't control where the turret fires! And it does damage to friendly units!
--- And, it's inexplicably easy for enemy units to kick your guys out and take control of the turret!"
My units never reentered and exited turrets unless the units inside the turret were killed. You can control where the turret fires but darwinians have to be inside and your units can also kick enemy out of turrets too. (kinda funny when they just keep kicking each other.) XD
"Unable to select more than one unit at once?!?!
Clunky controls for moving units
Units don't fire by themselves, yet randomly play the shooting sound when you're not looking?
Bullets bouncing on uneven terrain makes shooting very awkward given most of the map is mountainous"
Yes the first is true but i didn't have a problem with it. My units did fire by themselves (maybe he/she didn't have darwinian reasearched to level 2?) Bullets do bounce on terrain and sometimes that got annoying so i avoided terrain like that.
Overall i loved the game even though it does have its little bugs and problems but wouldn't buy it for the 10$ (or 20$ for both) I would get them on sale so you get both games for 1.30$.
(No offence to the other reviews I just used yours as counter arguments.)
