New update adding Submarines and Interplanetary Fighters!

Hey all! We’ve been working hard to get a full balance pass in place over January.

W obecnym stadium "release" tę grę można bardzo optymistycznie określić jako betę. Single player nie grywalny,
Odtwarzanie replayu w 50% kończy się alt+F4.
Kiedy przeczytałem że gra wyszła z fazy Early Access i developerzy zabierają się za nowy tytul przetarłem oczy ze zdumienia.

Są tu przzebłyski geniuszu.
Nie wątpię że gra może się podobać, jeśli akurat działa... jednakże ja osobiście oczekuję czegoś więcej.

W obecnej formie nie polecam, a chciałbym zmienić zdanie...

Planetary Annihilation - totalnie zmarnowana szansa na wskrzeszenie legendy "Total Annihilation". Po 2 częściach idiotycznego (sterowanie/fabuła) Supreme Commander, naprawdę miałem nadzieję na coś lepszego.
Zacznijmy od założeń - wielbiciele singa nie mają tutaj co szukać. Galactic War jest z góry skazane na cykl identycznych bitew, bez żadnej logiki, w tym samym schemacie, z tymi samymi technologiami przez 2/3 gry.
Spowalnianie tempa gry, dla bittew z setkami unitów? Nie ...
Ta gra przeznaczona jest dla małpek od multi. Teoretycznie, gdyż koszmarne sterowanie i częste dropowanie do 2 klatek na sekundę powodują iż armia wysłana na podbój w ciągu kilku sekund już nie istnieje a my nawet o tym nie wiemy. Dropy są tak straszliwe i tak bezsensowne iż zdarzają się nawet na 2-3 jednostkach na mapie.
W praktyce, w multi to różnica między życiem a śmiercią - zaczyna się drop, mapa staje się nieresponsywna, koniec bitwy.
Grafika - o Matko niejakiego Boska - dostajemy rendery jednostek a la 'moja pierwsza postać w Lightwave', zwane też 'Lego dla dorosłych'. Planetki, chociaż jednostajne, są dosyć przyjemne, jednak jednostki wołaja o pomstę do nieba.
Tutorial? Zapomnijcie. Przez połowę gry zastanawiacie się do daja kolejne banki, jak wygląda drzewko rozwoju (zżynka z TA), i po jaką cholerę nam te orbitalne jednostki.
Mówiłem o sterowaniu? Przy takim Starcrafcie gdzie liczy się klikanie na sekundę tutaj mamy coś tak chaotycznego i źle zaprojektowanego iż w praktyce mapa sferyczna (plus dodatkowy wymiar: orbitalne cuda) sprowadza się do tych 10 CTRL+numer. Jak to się ma do zapowiadanych bitwew per SETKI jednostek? no idea.
Wygrywa zasada: 10 fabryk, SHIFT+numer, jeden punkt zboru, huzia na Józia.
Totalnie (nomen omen) zmarnowana szansa na powrót legendy.

Wskrzeszanie starych produkcji to ciężka sprawa, tym bardziej że starsi gracze co wychowali sie na TA, będą dość skrupulatnie oceniać tą gre. Dla mnie może być oceniam 5/10

Według mnie Planetary Annihilation jest jednym z najlepszych RTS'ów. Nie oszukujmy się, głównym trybem jest tu multiplayer. Dzięki temu, że mamy planety można wykorzystać różne chwyty taktyczne. Trzeba zawsze pamiętać o rozwijaniu ekonomi. Grafika ma swój urok, nie jest ultra super, w tej grze nie o to chodzi. Mecze rozgrywają się na dużą skalę, nie jest dziwem wielka armia niszcząca wszystko po drodze, w końcu jak tytuł nam mówi jest to Anihilacja! Gra jest ciągle update'owana. Nie spotkałem się z bugami, które przeszkadzają nam w rozgrywce. Czasami trafiają się gracze, którzy z twojej bazy robią miazgę. Nie wolno się tym zrażać. Warto po meczy oglądnąć powtórkę. Dzięki temu sprawdzimy jak grał przeciwnikm. Warto się potem na tym wzorować.

Polecam każdemu, kto nie boi się wyzwań, a z pewnością miło spędzi czas.

Oglądając pewnego streamera jak zrzucił księżyc z orbity i zniszczył nim wrogą planetę pomyślałem że muszę mieć tą grę.Nie żałuję kupiłem w przecenie za niecałe 6€ polecam gra jest świetna.Wiele sposobów na anihilację wrogów/planet, tryb multiplayer w którym w zabawie może nawet brać 8 osób na 10 planetach,częste aktualizacje.Jedyną całkiem SPORĄ wadą jest wakt iż nawet na normalnym poziomie trudności ktoś kto spotkał się pierwszy raz z takim rodzajem gier (np.Ja) może się nieźle sfrustrować ale jest to również plus gdyż widać że AI jest na wysokim poziomie.Możemy również tworzyć własne galaktyki bądź edytować gotowe.Grafika nie jest zła lecz szału nie ma.Są też oczywiście jakieś bugi niektóre bardzier denerwujące inne mniej.
Jak dla mnie gra zasługuje na 9/10 ale jest to moja opinia i każdy może mieć inną.

Zbudowałem moją bardzo pierwszą bombę atomową i chciałem przetestować jak działa:
-połowa miasta zniszczona - miljon surowców
-komander prawie martwy - dwa miljony surowców
-widok tej słodkiej animacji i okrutnej niszczycielskiej mocy bomby - bezcenne.

Polecam każdemu niespełnionemu dyktatorowi Korei Północnej.

I truly love this game. It does have something great about it. So I am going to bash the **** out of it now.

This game could be so great, but sadly it just falls short.
If this was truly a hard working little indy dev struggling to make it in this world then I would not be writing the wall of text before you!

I also understand the amount of hard work that has been put into the game of which a sizable chuck goes in credit to the actual fans and modders, since they are likely to make the game better than the people that actually earned money from it.

Planets? Flat, lifeless with a few cracks and if you are really lucky, you might get a raised platau a toddler could step down off of, and yet your giant commander cannot! Shoddy half arsed textures. Metal planets not looking metal at all. Strange knobbly mountains and bits that really, just get in the way of the already terrible pathing.
Controls? Buggy, not clear and needing work.
Boats? Whats the point, seriously? Maybe to defend a base with but unless your world has half water, you wont be using them to attack... Seriously! Because you CANT!!!! You cat get anywhere near the enemy with your super slow, super useless ships.
Again, the aircraft are insanely overpowered. Yet they talk about balance issues with a unit cannon?!?
No shields. When you crowdfund a game, give the people the game they crowdfunded! Or was it "backed" or "supported", noone seems to make their mind up and as with every game nowadays there is an army of drones that make excuses for these sorry game designers making money off your backs.
People have a right to be annoyed and to say it and to express ANGER at this kind of thing.

And now, to rip Galactic war, the Single Player element of Planetary Annihilation.

Terrible UI and genrally GW is devoid of feeling, story or substance.
Limited things to do, getting the "cards" to upgrade generally needs work, more cards, variation, a real reason to play GW.
You cant move around at all on the game map. If you want to travel backwards past previously conquered planets on the galaxy grid you have to click each individual planet and click travel, agian and again and again and again and again. You think Im kidding? Ha!
I know there is a "mod" to fix this map movement issue,!! made by the community !!. Lazy work letting the community fix your game. Lost respect for you guys after this. I shouldnt need a mod for a game to make it playable.
Buttons clunky, interface clunky, doesnt feel nice at all and sucks to be you if you get stuck on a 1v3 in the Galactic War when the enemy computer commanders can throw nukes at you from other planets but you cant even land on their planet which is heavily fortified with orbital units and air units and maybe some mostly useless land units. The reason you cannot land on a fortified planet is because all you can build is one unit type you use to travel between planets called the Atreus. This Atreus can only hold ONE unit at a time so if the computer has locked the planet down good luck getting onto it!!!
I did actually get 200 Atreus loaded with T2 builders and tanks and land and get a portal up that had hundreds of T2 units that all swarmed thru as soon as it was built. I did this THREE TIMES to THREE PLANETS in ONE GAME. Yeah, it was satisfying but blow me down if it isnt a serious game flaw. Its not hard, its stupid and badly balanced and badly done.

Is this game still in Beta? NO! but it should be.

Let me start by saying that I have been following this game from the beginning as a backer. To put this simply, I would not recommend this game in it's current state (release build 71544). To call this a final game is absurd and borderline insulting. Features are missing or not flushed out at all and I don’t just mean I don't like them. For example:

There is no way to play this game in offline mode. This was promised from the beginning to be included "When the game is released". They lied. Also You cannot save a game so either be prepared to spend at very least 30 minutes of uninterrupted time on here or waste it when you have something unexpected happen.

Single player is useless, boring, and flavorless. Many of the games only redeeming features are not even included with galactic campaign, no super weapons here folks. And maybe I am in the minority here but I like singleplayer usually, there just isn't anything worth playing.

The games are hard to follow after you leave your first planet. Most of the time will be spent navigating the UI trying to make sense of the battle while you literally leave your other forces idle.

OPTOMIZATION is nonexistent. I have a high end rig for windows and a top line IMac and neither of them can run this game without major lag, graphical tears, or in many cases crashes/screen blackouts. This is acceptable for a beta but not a final release. And honestly the graphics are pretty boring to look at and I'm a fan of the cell shaded/cartoon look but somehow they managed to make that dull and not vibrant.

There are some small gripes I have with the game as well. First is the lack of "flavor". I feel like all the units are so bland and basic, and to make it worse everyone is using the same ones. I wish there was some way of differentiating the units per leader, or even take some cues from the terrible single player and limit the techs for each player to 3 or 4 cards to make games more exciting. That brings me to my last little gripe, bots vs land vehicles. There is almost no difference between the two gameplay wise, honestly what’s the point, maybe I am missing something here?

So unless something drastic changes don't waste your time or money on this game, I know I wish I hadn't.

My internet connection at time of review was roughly 7mb down 2-3 up, actual. Best I can afford and I would say better than avarage. Note: This is my actual number not the "estimate" that providers give you. (Welp, I'm an idiot. Actual numbers are 31 down, 12 up.)

I will Update the review if anything changes.

(UPDATE Oct. 7th)

They have announced a patch coming Oct. 9th that will bring offline play. I will be testing it out and update the review accordingly.

(UPDATE Oct. 10th RELEASE BUILD 73737)

So far with the update they made adding offline support everything has been going smoothly (at least as much as before). There are still plenty of major bugs that can be really frustrating and even make the game unplayable at times. I am glad that so far they have stuck with PA and turned out this update. As of right now I still cannot reccommend the game, however.

Some people have complained that my review doesn't take multiplayer into account much and honestly they are right. I dont like multiplayer in games like this, it all comes down to who can click faster. I thought it was pretty clear from my statments that this review is more for singleplayer or casual multiplayer people. Also once you are entreanched in seperate planets there is really no way to invade eachother so it ends up being who can make the most nukes first (or activate the deathstar-esc metal planet).

I really hope this game grows on me, I love the concept, I also really want to back their new project Human Resources but I think I will hold off since this game left such a bad taste in my mouth, not only for Uber but Kickstarter in general (Kickstarters really dont have to provide the product to you at all, and that breaks no kickstarter rules).

Im a big player of Total Anihilation and especially Supreme Commander-Forged Alliance, im a huge fan and loyal long time player, this is my view of the game so far.

Is this game worth buying right now? No
What about later? No

Why? It's unfinished, claiming to be a completed work when we all know this is still a beta. There's missing effects, units, customization and more. Saying that the game is ready to be sold, is rubbish, its not, they just needed another bulk of cash to carry on developing. Remember all this is just my opinion but it is based on facts that even recently have come to light.


In-depth information.
Graphics: 3/10
To allow for many amounts of units on the screen at once, polygon-count has been shredded, where most units and structures appear extremely square-ish, textures also greatly simplified to a huge extent. It looks really bad. I think i appreciated Supreme Commanders dramatic wars a lot more because of the quality of the image and units. Advantage is, you dont need a mega-computer to run this game smoothly, but i still feel like the quality has been destroyed too far. Many negative points for many effects being completely missing from the game. Remember a planet colliding and blowing up in the trailor? theres no effect for that in the actual game...it's unfinished.

Sound: 3/10
The repeated low quality sounds become very overly repetetive, with all units in the game having nothing to say but a mechinical noise, where only the engineer tank makes any unique noises, and the weapon firing sound effects for all units feel completely impactless, there's no OOMPH! or quality. The orchestral music isnt so bad, but it is short lived as there is no variation or multiple tracks. EVERY game features the same, SINGLE interchanging track based on wether youre incombat or drinking a beer etc.

Gameplay: 2/10
After all the wait and all the multipl intakes of cash Uber Entertainment conned out of us, we got scraps. Where in short, the person who Mashes the mouse button the fastest AND wins a Decision based Dice-roll, rather than the smartest and most strategic player is going to be the winner of the game. You cannot speed up and slowdown gameplay (like in Supreme Commander) to allow for real strategy, instead, the winning formulae is to build as much as you can, as fast as you can (mash that mouse button! yeeaah!) of something to Zerg rush your opponent in ALL games. There's no strategy whatsoever than 'Send units directly to enemy'. The ability to smash moons and planets together is broken, where even some games end with EVERYONE losing, because early in the game, your planet 'naturally' (not caused by players) smashes with another one before ANYBODY including hard AI has a chance to leave the planet...meaning the entire game was a pointless waste of time right from the beginning.
With Land > Sea > Air > Orbital >Artillery > Nukes > Forced Planetary destruction giving too many things to possibly build to defend against all of them, the whole games boils down to who plays the fastest from the beginning, and what choice or units you build at the beginning, in a Rock-Paper-Scissors-Stapler-Pencil-Rubber-Glue-EverybodyLoses style gameplay.
In short, it feels pointless to play a game where you know who's won in the first 5 minutes. THERES NO STRATEGY HERE WHATSOEVER, it's all about mashing the mouse button.
Terrible.

Overall: 3/10
The idea of what this game can become, is fantastic, but it is greatly undermined by being unfinished, unbalanced, and not anywhere near ready for consumption, and currently not worth that asking price. My advice is to play Supreme Commander - Forged Alliance against AiX (super hard cheating AI) if you want 'actual' large scale war that involves STRATEGY in order to overcome a tough challenge. It breaks my heart as a massive fan and lover of the other 2 games to say it :( This is not a RTS, just a button masher. AVOID.

Feedback?
1. Give people the option like in Supreme Commander to SpeedUp and SlowDown gametime. We all have different physical playing speeds and bodily/mental fingerclickin limitations. It's not skill or strategy (i cannot state that enough), Planetary Annihilation is just speedclicking in it's current state. Its like giving a button-masher the championship-title in a Street Fighter tournament, it just aint how it goes.

2. Scale. Planets, are so small that it takes away the ability to create strategies on the ground level.

3. Defenses. Most turrets are pointless, they cannot stop much, and are too squishy. The most concerning defensive structure you gave us...is the wall...It is too easy to shoot around and many air units, orbital units and launchers and artillery and (long list of other things) simply ignore Walls. Remove these pointless walls that dont do anything, and replace them with Shield technologies.

---UPDATE - 2014 9th OCTOBER---
It has been announced that Uber are teaming up with the creators of Super Monday Night Combat (another piece of unfinished junk) to create another strategy game, when this game isnt finished by a huge mile. Breaking their Kickstarter contract to complete what was stated they were going to do.

At this point i can sadly say that this is all just a money scam at this point, to rush out a crappy game using kickstarter even though they already have the money squeezed from the fans of Supreme Commander. This is just greed, and full corruption even below EA standards. THIS COMPANY IS SCAMMING YOU, AVOID ALL GAMES.


Uber Entertainment have gone very low into corruption. This game is nowhere near finished, and we the people are now being stabbed in the back after supporting their game with an unfinished product, and being shaked for more money on a new kickstarter for another game when they already have the money they robbed from you the fans.

There has been a great deal of drama over the internet on this, and i (once a hugely loyal fan) am saddened to have to agree...All trust has been lost, take my advice and do not do any further business with these swindlers. DO NOT FEED THEM MONEY ON KICKSTARTER. Its a scam, they already have taken tonnes of YOUR cash to be able to afford development of the next game. They want cash, for nothing.

Discluding the crappy campaign mode which only consisted of copy/paste skirmishes, this is what Uber Entertainment have done:

-Stolen over $1.1 Million in Kickstarter Fraud.
-Stolen (by leaked rumours) around $16 million from Steam/Game fans in sales of a broken & unfinished game that does not meet the Kickstarter declarations.
-Abandoned the game to a small team to do patchwork, breaking their Kickstarter contracts.
-Instead of using the stolen cash to develop the new game 'Human Resources' , setup another Kickstarter so YOU have to pay for it.

Expect further fraud and broken contracts. This is large scale fraud that deserves headlines in every game magazine (where the hell are you guys...you call yourselves journalists?)

Uber Entertainment should be Boycotted.

---UPDATE 22nd OCTOBER---
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/659943965/human-resources-an-apocalyptic-rts-game/posts
'Human Resources' canceled, the fans responded with great power behind their lack of donations. Human Resources was boycotted & the fans have been given a slight piece of Justice.

May Planetary Annihilation now be properly developed on...probably not.
Either way, they should be banned from using Kickstarter in the future for taking the money and abandoning the game before the contract was complete. Thats fraud on a massive scale that needs an appropriate response.

The game just isn't there.

It looks amazing, the concept sounds amazing, but it just wasn't done "right".

Ultimately the game is not horrible and I am sure that I could still enjoy some matches, but for the most part I just find the game lacking in many (needed and simple) ways. To give an example, this game is said to be RTS. While by definition I suppose it is, the strategy element is the weakest simply because every game mostly consists of unit spamming. It basically just comes down to who can get the biggest army the fastest, and there are very few opportunities for tactical flanking, unit countering, etc.

The final nail in the coffin for this game (to me) was the Galactic Conquest mode. It sounded amazing and I was expecting something akin to Star Wars Empire at War. Instead it is quite literally nothing more than "exploring" a pre-generated map, and whenever you encounter an enemy force, you then have to fight it. There are no turns, so the enemy does nothing, and the only "strategy" involved is you having to choose which units you can build via which "techs" you hang on to (you can only hold three at the beginning). Oh and you don't research the techs, you find them on planets...

At any rate, I just can't give this game a positive review. It had the potential to be awesome, but I feel that it failed.

Not a review, but a warning. The game has just entered the "official launch" phase. This implies the game is complete and fully released. However it is not finished, and there's still many missing features. The devs admitted to the game being incomplete, but went ahead and released it anyway.

Don't support these kinds of people.

This is a review of single player so called Galactic war.

-Gameplay is boring and repetitive!
-Sterategy element is not present! spam more unit than A.I and step over it.
-all the factions are the same! just different basic colors.
-all factions units are same! there are still balance issues! some of them frustrating and gamebreaking.
-commanders are only skins! no different abilities here. ludicrously those little ugly skins cost 10-20€ on the DRM store!
-nasty bugs are present. Gamebreaking ones like not allowing you to select or command your units.
-performance issues with the latest gaming machines!

Honestly... i cannot recommand this game to my friends and family.
don't waste your time here and don't let the hype take over your logic.

Having been a big fan of Total Annihalation, I was very excited when I saw this kickstarter, but as development grinded on, it became somewhat forgettable. When we got to start playing, I was very excited to see what the lore had developed like- but this is really just an RTS smash-em-up, with no soul. TA had more unique units and combat method, and was trapped with a 2d platform. On the whole, great if you want to play multiplayer, bad if you want to play a grand RTS story.

After Uber released an update and have declared another on the way, I decided to change my review because, quite frankly, I don't want to lie to people that don't know the game at all.

This game is still unfinished, but what game is anymore. They are apparently still releasing updates, so at least there's that.

The game still requires some pretty high specs to run efficiently. Quad-core processor with 8 gigs of RAM is pretty steep for the common user. You don't actually need those specs to run the game, you just need them to run it efficiently.

I still call bogus on the offline mode. If you can't start a game and play it without internet connection, then there's no offline mode.

The balance, or rather lack of balance, in this game is just atrocious. If you're looking for a balanced game this is not it...yet. It's likely to be patched soon and I'll update when that happens. Also, this
game is stale and repetitve as crap.

The whole part about Uber stealing money with Human Resources is bogus.
Although, it was still pretty cheap of them to try to abandon PA like that. And all that crap about
them leaving a team to work on this game? I didn't buy it due to their previous unfinished games.

In a nutshell, this game is....meh. Not a great game, not yet. It's got potential to be better, and it looks like Uber is taking steps to reach that potential.Until then, I'd still say skip this game until this game gets a little better, or wait for a sale. It's just not worth 40$ to me.

Not even close to a finished product. I support this game, but it shouldn't be out of early access.

Needs 6 more months of development. At least. The UI and information presentation is quite bad, the balance is somewhat questionable, but the most glaring error is in the core design of the server-side everything. And the single player might as well not even be there; one could say it was tacked on, but tacks are often of higher quality than this.
