Reviews

“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 This 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...

Game welcomes you with a registration form you better fill out if you don't want to be limited to "demo mode".
That form includes mandatory fields like: Real name, full address including postal code and country, gender, birthday.

They make you register when you first start the game. Don't write the return code they give you down, you won't ever play the game again.

I know why you're here. You got a 90%(OR 86%) discount on this like I did, didn't you?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Edit: Apparently it's now an 86% discount.

The game will crash a lot and have long loading times. As a fan of RTS's, this is not one to buy.

10 years after initial release and the game is still amazing. 4 different factions to play, one with extremely different technology then the others. The three primary factions have serious differences beyond what you see in similiar RTS games from the last ten years. Played this game not only on Steam but also via CD and DVD versions. Only flaw in the game was too small an advertising budget. After many hours of playing I discovered the first person view for your units, pretty cool in an RTS. Even more features remain to be discovered in this gem.

I remeber this game when his original realised, still i love it
Its a really nice RTS with plenty of mission's, really good challanging AI, epic plot (by the standars of his age), many diffrent units (that you can customize them to your needs) and a very good music to back up your plays

The only con i think for this game is the hard AI (personaly i love the AI ) but for new players it will be proven a bit challenging

If you buy it i hope you enjoy it :D
