Wow...I am blown away by this game. This is one of those games where you say "It may be a school night, and I have to get up before 10, but I'll just play for 10 minutes or so..." yeah, that ten minutes later..."Oh crap, it's been 2 hours, I need some sleep...ok, 30 more minutes" *Alarm goes off* "♥♥♥♥ 10:30 AM" Well, it was fun while it lasted...but I get to play after school so YAY" Get home from school and go straight to this. Yeah, this game is THAT good.
Now for the actuall review type suff:
Graphics: Not that great, but does it matter with a game like this? Plus the special effects like fire and explosions are quite satisfying to see.
Gameplay: It is quite easy to get the hang of it after about 10 or so minutes. Solid, fun, eaasy to understand.
Awesomeness: 100/10. Need I say more?
Features: This is awesome. Now I have only played like 2 other RTS games ever, so I don't know if this is a common RTS feature, but you can literally level the environment. Bring every building to the ground.
SPOILER BEYOND HERE:
Other Features: You can call in airstrikes, control tanks, humvees, different types of infantry, anit-air vehicles, and much more. And in that airstrike section, you can also call in napalm strikes, precise bombs (for specific targets) and much more.
Story: I'm not gonna lie, the story gave me chills seeing what it would actually look like when the Russians storm our coasts and invade Seatle. Civilians dying, hospitals, super markets, office buildings, coming to the ground with bombs. It was so real it literally gave me chills. That's saying something. The cutscenes are pretty cool to watch. Realistic movement and voice acting, great audio quality, and overall exciting and thrilling to watch.
OVERALL SUMMARY: Great game, worth the price, tons of fun to come. And I haven't even tried the multiplayer yet. So I would recommend this to any fan of CoD and RTS. Totally satisfied with this purchase.
