I used to have this game on disc when I was younger. And it was by far one of my favourite games. Sadly I lost the disc and felt truly lost.

Though when the appeared on Steam, I ♥♥♥♥ myself with excitement, this game is great and brings back great memories for me.

9/10 - Great game :)

This for me was a must buy. I remember this game from many moons ago, and absolutely loved it. Though perhaps outdated compared to many modern RTS games, for me the nostalgia element is what winds this game over.

There are flaws to it, but you find that with many old games. You have to enjoy it for what it is.

9/10

It's like Stronghold...With a lot more ♥♥♥♥! I CAN START GENOCIDES...KIND OF! I mean, I can go from doing Crusader things, to being a Pagan, to doing art. This game is fuuuuuuuuuuuun, mayne. It has a pretty funky soundtrack, too. But really, for all of you Stalin-want-to-be people. Genocide.

In short, Great game, I have played this before it came out on steam... When I did play it, which was for an hour offline (why it says 13 minutes) it felt like it flowed well and that it was free from glitchess... The original I spent hours playing like I did with Redalert back in the day and like I do now with Supremme Commander.

This is a deepand rich RTS with many types of troop and a genuinely unique way to determine your faction that you dont find often in RTS games...

Combat is good, economy is reasonably deep and there are quite alot of choices and units to build/use.

Skirmish allows many CPU 'Gernal types and apparently has support for Multiplayer, which I wil show in the follow you tube video (I am not the author of this video but looks like a decent enough illustration).

Battles always felt better to play than the original and was far less Glitchey, though I do think 'Black Cactus have learnt a few lessons in Programme design since they first started out, as this felt better when I ran it on steam...

I Heartily recommend this title : here's a video of a sample battle,,, but most battles are more compelx than this - as any pure RTS goes...

I may not have meany steam hours but i must of spent months on this game a look back on my child hood and this was 1 of the shining lighs for its age its grathics are beond average and the mechanicks are simple but very in depth and it takes you gradualy making you think trategickly should i get that this or that and for every victory you earn no rewards and mechanics to beat the harder stages its very simple but greatly implemented this game should be bigger if this was released now it would become a hit aslong as the content was up to date im a big fan of this game and if you like highly strategic games with growing strengths and increasing depth this is for you
