Meridian: New World is a Real Time Strategy single player game. The
music is very well done, and adds to the highs and lows of the combat and
story. The graphics and the story combine beautifully to create a visual work
One issue I have noted in this game is in the user interface.
The map is nicely done, and I had no issue with the moving or management of
troops, but there are small problems like having to click on the scene to
move individual troops. There is a level of micromanagement that has been
integrated into the system that makes the action of moving troops more
complicated than it needs to be, which becomes more and more of an issue as you
progress through higher levels of difficulty.
The level design is done quite well. The missions provide small
variations with specific goals that breaks up any feeling of repetitive combat.
What hurts this game is the lack of a proper tutorial; you are just thrown
into the action without proper knowledge of the interface. As the levels get
larger, and you have a larger army, you need to have tight control of your troops
and a workable strategy with how you progress. The AI in this game is very
poor, where sometimes a troop that you tell to hold position will decided to
attack anyways, making any advanced strategy near impossible as you have to
babysit your troops to make sure they don't go off on their own. It is
The game suffers from many minor annoyances; I go into more detail in
my video, but small things like not being able to bind to infantry barracks to
one key, or not being able to build buildings if there is a troop in the way,
and the continuous swarming of the enemy that doesn't seem to have a unit cap
while you are limited by resources all add up to a not fun experience. The cost
of troops to the amount of resources available in the game is unbalanced.
Overall, I can't recommend this game due to the combination of so
many small annoyances that all add up to a frustrating experience. The game
doesn't respect you or your time, and isn't worth your money.
