EARTH 2150: ESCAPE FROM THE BLUE PLANET

The 21st century was supposed to herald the dawn of a new age. The wars, famines and suffering of the last 20 millennia were to become a distant, fading memory, as scientific advances brought global peace and prosperity. Toward the end of the 20th century, a now forgotten US president even went so far as to officially proclaim the arrival of a New World Order, in which right, not might, would govern international relations. This bright future was not to be. First came a meltdown of the international stock and currency exchanges. Then the major international conglomerates were dissolved in a vain attempt to stop the fiscal hemorrhage. By 2012 the world economy had collapsed. Poverty and hunger caused social and political tensions to flare. As the crisis wore on, few were bold or naive enough to predict anything positive for the future. Most realized that the planet was on the verge of global conflict.

In 2048, the anticipated global conflict broke out with a violence that shook the planet to its core. All major centralized governments were destroyed in the maelstrom. Europe and Eastern Asia bore the brunt of the devastation, as entire urban centres, from Madrid to Moscow and from Seoul to Singapore were literally wiped off the map.
The human race has always been known for its resiliency. Within a dozen years, the Earth's inhabitants had begun to restore their old nationalities - with a few twists. Twelve states of the former United States joined together to form a new country, called the United Civilized States. The UCS citizens had essentially given up their old roles as producers and leaders. Nearly all work was being performed by robots which are controlled by expert computer systems. Not surprisingly, the human inhabitants of the UCS had become lazy and decadent.

The 20th-century dream for a better world had ended in death and destruction.

EARTH 2150: THE MOON PROJECT

The year 2150 … one of the blackest chapters in the history of mankind. While the Lunar Corporation, Eurasian Dynasty and the United Civilized States are preparing themselves for the last all-encompassing battle, work is being feverishly carried out on a secret project on the Moon. Only the code name of this project is known ………… "SUNLIGHT"

EARTH 2150: LOST SOULS

It is the 7th of December 2150 – in a few hours our beloved planet Earth will no longer exist.
Devastating wars between the Eurasian Dynasty and the United Civilized States have wreaked havoc and caused mortal wounds to our planet, but that is not all, a series of nuclear explosions close to the Antarctic had changed the Earth’s orbit around the sun, glaciers melted, the sea rose to a threatening level, and meteorite showers buried whole parts of the world. Famous scientists from the Lunar corporation, a long forgotten colony on the moon first recognized the signs of the imminent catastrophe. According to their calculations the distance between the sun and earth would decrease in the next few years by 17%, which would lead to terrible consequences.

The only hope left for the population was the escape to the red planet Mars. Hurry up, cause time is ticking away....

I dont usually feel urge need to write review for games..but when i do..


Earth 2150, in one sentence: "The Forever Shining jewel of the past".

This game not only stands for itself, but it stands for an era of gaming and gaming industry.

Its the era when studios care to impress the gaming population and offer as much content as possible and with quality to come with, and wasn't driven by money as first priority.
This is not your typical C&C game that after 7 missions of singeplayer sands u back to your desktop to spend $$$ for expansions packs, or the studio was "too lazy" to add naval units or other features.


Earth 2150 came out in 2002, and set a new era of RTS gaming, since it was (if im not mistaken) the first full 3D RTS game in the market.

-The Story in a nutshell:

its 2150, and the over-use of nukes in the recent wars by 2 factions has resulted in kicking the earth out of its normal orbit straight into the sun.

So now the earth's destruction is inevitable and led to all 3 factions working on big projects to evacuate (their) popluation to Mars before the earth explodes.

-Gameplay

This is not your typical Paper-Rock-Sccisors RTS/ this unit counters that and that counters this .....
You research tech, which comes in the form of Chasis for ur vehiciles/ships/aircraft.
You also research a large variety of weapons, and ammunitions, togather you build those weapons on top of ur units creating different type of units according to your taste, different chasis sometimes allow u to combine weapons togather.
The maps are big, and the approach to attack is different in each game, espacilly vs other players, since u its hard to know what tech he is going for; is my enemy rushing rockets advanaced tech with homing capabilites? or hes going right into plasma cannons or heavy rockets ..etc etc.

You can manipulate the terrain , create trenches to block enemy vehicles, flatten the terrain, build bridges, and...construct an entire tunnel network...yup...u can litterly dig under fortified enemy bases for back-door attacks.
Most weapons require ammuntions, so u need to consider this when fighting far from your base (supply depots and aircraft handle ammunition delievery).

Campaign-

The Beauty of the campaign is that its no entirelylinear, you are set with a global objective of getting a large amount of credits towards the evacuation of the planet.
Within missions u need to find the balance between building an army and researcing tech, to sending credits to ur spaceport for the main goal, if u fail missions the game doesnt end, sometimes u just lose the tech/content that u could have received withing that missions, and in some cases u are presented with different missions on the globe due to the one u failed.
you only fail the campaign if u fail to achieve the required credits when the timer runs out ( and you have plenty of time, the timer doesn't pushes you to rush missions at all), i finished the first campaign with 109 days left (out of 183) and i took all the time in the world in each and every mission i played.

The missions vary from destroying enemy bases, sneaking and exploring huge tunnel systems, recovering artifacts and prototypes, testing new tech....

You can finish the campaign earlier, u dont need to reach "final mission 20" to end the game, its all up to your methods.
you do u have general time limit before earth goes boom though..

btw, when the global timer gets close zero, the map variety changes as well, forests map turn into lava maps with hot terrain,
water maps are almost non existent...and so on.

in total, there are around ~30 missions..yes....THIRTEE missions PER faction , and they usually take more then 30-40 min real time to complete.
Just to give an exmaple, it took me around ~20 total hours to complete the campaign with one faction.

Its insane how much content and variety this game has for something that comes up in 2002, most of those features the RTS games of today doesn't even have, and the content they provide is much more thinner.

You are always driven forward to continue, if its by the tech and the new units that come available, the missions, the story and so on.

I wish studios today would develop games like earth 2150, and its concepts that completly change the course of how RTS games work. rather then squeeze as much $$$ as possible for its costumers and giving them the minimum content to please them.

Its amazing that im enjoying this game even more when i first played it..12 years ago.
For a misrable price of 7 bucks that include the expansions pack as well, its so much worth it.

Im playing this game on Win 7 with no problems at all, if its crashes for u its due to resultion, and there are plenty of solutions to that in steamforums/internet.

TL:DR


Pros:

-Non-linear campaign
-Very long campaign
-Multiple ways to approach missions
-Unit Costumization and a very large research tree
-Air force, Navy Units and Ground Units, its all there
-Tunnel digging
-Minefields
-Terran shaping and manipluation
-Very intresting to play factions, all balanced and differ from each other
-Hige Replay value

Cons

-Old controls and lacking mouse options (you canno't invert the mouse controls - right click command, left click select)
-Sometimes clunky units behevior (shooting rockets into mountains etc..)
-Not alot of players in mutiplayer these days

Overall 9.5/10

Bought this game a few days after it was released, and then I bought The Moon Project and Lost Souls. I really wanted to play this game, but the disks were broken, so hello price of €0.97! Here I come!

This game is a golden classic in every, single detail. No, seriously, this game made the unit-design thing so solid that it was fun, and never looked wrong. For a game from year 2000, it was one of the best from the RTS genre.

Good graphics for that year, which is now left with fecals thrown at it by angry kiddos who were more used to the XXX360N0SC0P3XXX graphics and gameplay of ♥♥♥♥ty Call of Duty. Details are also lovely! When it is snowing, your buildings and units get covered in snow! When it is raining, your units and buildings get all nice and clean! Oh, have I told you about the ability to arm your buildings? Yep, another of these features that made the game amazing.

Three different factions that differ, lots of different missions, good detail and interesting, put-together mainbase/mission map, together with the tunneling aspect! This is good!

If you are not a whiney ♥♥♥♥, and love to play some good old classics, then get this game. I got it a couple of days ago, and I might not have plenty of hours of it played on Steam, but trust me: Back then, when I didn't have the internet, I played the living HELL out of this game.

So yeah, get it if you are the classics masterrace, and not a dickbutt.


P.S.: If you crash at the opening of the design menu (F1), then I recommend setting to OpenGL and choosing a maximal resolution of 1280x1024. Works evry tiem.

Highly recommended. Especially if you still have got older PC/laptop. Quite addictive. I really love that option that you can save your tanks/vehicles for next missions or just transport your army between missions from main base. If you like RTS old school - you will enjoy this game.

Really nice game I played with a friend few years ago when it came out. Partly modular tanks and buildings and stuff...
Tho I never got to buy it as my PC was too weak back then.
Later I forgot about it and now I found it for the absolute hammer-price tag of 0,89€!!
A must-buy for all stragegy fans :)
