“It may not replace "Star Craft" in terms of stature - but it’s damn close. The multiplayer matches are suitably intense, and the single-player campaign delivers everything in terms of both expectation and intention.”
90 – Gamer's Hell

“An extremely lengthy, deep, and beautiful strategy experience. From the very start, you'll find yourself drawn in and playing for quite a long time.”
85 – Worth Playing

“The super high learning cure will absolutely knock quite a few gamers out of their seats.”

About the Game

After the destruction of the EARTH in 2150, the leaders of the Eurasian Dynasty escaped on board an evacuation fleet. Now they are fighting for the survival of the human species. Their base is one large building comprising of smaller variable parts. The Lunar Corporation is already on the Red Planet and has to fight to find a new base and home after the destruction of the Earth. LC buildings are built one on top of the other, similar to a skyscraper, but with one big difference - they have the ability to defy all the laws of gravity to move quickly to a new location.

The UCS (United Civilized States) machines evolved from the UCS battle machines. During the long flight to Mars, the computer decided to kill all human survivors and then initiated a plan to conquer the solar system with its own mechanical army. The Aliens - alien renegades were imprisoned a long ago, deep in the unknown history of Mars.

In 2160 the landing of the UCS ships awoke them from their long sleep...

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”

Earth 2160 is a very good real-time strategy game with four unique factions, a remarkable grade of unit customization and broad spectrum of tactical opportunities.

Compared with the predecessors the differences and specific characteristics of the factions were further developed (e.g. unique base building and unit types) and the micromanagement of units and buildings has been simplified. The presentation of the story can be seen as another strong point of this game.

On the other hand the clarity of the user interface still remains an issue, that would have needed more attention.

Based on the performance each category will receive one of the following grading:

- S-Rank: excellent
- A-Rank: very good
- B-Rank: solid
- C-Rank: satisfactory
- D-Rank: inferior

If the S-Rank is awarded, a quote from the game or personal comment will be added as a token of my respect (in brackets).

With an interesting premise, four campaigns and a large amount of depth with the researchable technology tree, Earth 2160 allows hardcore strategy fans the option to tailor make their own units and plans for galactic conquest.It has amazing faction balance that include some awesome base building strategies and terrific tech tree. On the other hand, it has a campaign that simply plods along with a slow pace, lack of creativity in mission design, and a story that is fatiguing thanks in large part to some amusingly bad characters and horrible voice-overs.

Weaker than Earth 2150 but still an underrated and decent RTS game that brought some interesting changes into the franchise for the better and the worse.

Also:
Aliens are interesting but you may or may not like them as a playable faction or as your enemies. The only other problem might be the annoying extra-DRM.

Not bad for a strategy for 5 dollars that came out during 2006 , not bad research system and battles, story and navigation can be boring though if you buy this game it might be for lan or skrimish.

Overall I would recommend to fans of RTS games who have played the major titles and are looking for something different.

+4 unique races, each with their own campaign
+Units, buildings, and research look, feel, and play differently for the races
+Cool unit customization options, build and name your own vehicles
+Hero units with variety of weapons and armor with different effects
+Story and graphics are decent, with fully voiced dialogue

-Poor voice acting, little story outside of missions.
-Some fans of the Earth series do not like the changes in this game
-Doesn't hold up as well as major RTS titles such as C&C or Starcraft
