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....

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 :)

I've been a 2150 fan since release. Like many here on steam I got this release because my old discs had seen too much action over the last 14 years to be able to install the game properly. Everything is as I remember it: awesome unit customization system, epic unit numbers, lasers and rockets and EXPLOSIONS EVERYWHERE!! I would recommend the game to anyone with only 2 reservations:

1.) These games are OLD and the graphics have not held up well. If you can't handle that, you have been warned.

2.) These games do not support widescreen HD resolutions. The included resolution testing program will clear them and you can get into the game menu but upon launching into a game you will crash to desktop. USE 4:3 RESOLUTIONS ONLY.
