Over dit spel

Drieduizend jaar in de toekomst heeft de mensheid zich een bloedig pad naar dominantie op het gehele bekende universum gevochten. Als zelfbenoemd goddelijk en zijn gelijke niet kennend ras, zien mensen alle buitenaardse rassen als inferieur. Met vele vloten, bestaande uit organische sterrenschepen die genetisch geperfectioneerd zijn voor de oorlog, vertrekt de mensheid op een reis om de laatste onafhankelijke Melkweg te veroveren, het Universele Hart.

Als Kapitein Iconah ben jij opgedragen om de locatie en functie van het Hart te ontdekken. Voer het bevel over een levende vloot, steeds weer het DNA van je schepen aanpassend om ze nieuwe en krachtige vaardigheden te verschaffen. De Universele Kruistocht begint!

  • Coöperatieve modus laat twee spelers samenwerken in het besturen van een vloot!
  • Pas de meer dan 20 op genen gebaseerde organische schepen aan met meer dan 50 verschillende wapens en vaardigheden, die jou duizenden mogelijke combinaties geven om uit te kiezen bij het bouwen van een vloot.
  • Scheepsmodellen veranderen realtime wanneer genen worden geïmplementeerd, jouw keuzes reflecterend!
  • Sluit bondgenootschappen met de vele computergestuurde buitenaardse rassen om hun steun en technologie veilig te stellen - of ze van dit alles te beroven!
  • Breid je genetische mogelijkheden uit door vijandelijke schepen binnen te dringen, onbewaakte technologie te stelen en jouw genenpoel zo veel mogelijk uit te breiden.
  • Gamespy Multiplayer met ondersteuning tot 12 spelers en vele multiplayer speelvelden waarop jij je dominantie kan uiten!

Well, I completed it!

It's a graphically pleasing game and I enjoyed the genes configuring of the ships and stations to suite whatever mission purpose. Interesting approach to fleet building.

I did experience bugs - Memory low and a few other CTDs - setting graphics to medium may have lessened these crashes alot. I owned this originally on DVD years back and the same errors happened on that one too.

Characters are ok, same with voice acting. Nothing out of the ordinary on the missions. Religious rule backed by military based plot so expected something along what Star Trek V gave us. Even including a high-jacking too!

Its fine if you want a game in the Homeworld style vein don’t expect it to exceed that in any way that as that truly a masterpiece.

As others have said get it on a sale – Its ok. There’s worse things to spend a few quid on here.

Let me start by saying that while I do recommend this game, the Steam version has given people some problems; some say they have had errors on trying to launch, which I have not had, and others have said they have had some in-game oddities such as ships not loading, which I did encounter and initially kept me from advancing past the 2nd map.

The steam version is missing a couple of folders. It is silly but adding these empty folders resolves some of the problems such as the ships not loading. Click Read More if needed to see the fix.

Go to your Steam directory.

In Steam\steamapps\common\Genesis Rising
Create three new folders called 'replay','temp', and 'save' (without quotes)

Then in Steam\steamapps\common\Genesis Rising\data
Create a new folder called 'scripts' (without quotes)
[Many thanks to Future2012 who originally posted this fix.]

Other than that I didn't get any errors on Win7 64-bit when launching it so I don't know if compatibility mode would help or if it is an OS or driver issue. When I did the above fix I have been able to play through several missions without incident.

All that said, the game itself is really good and has everything from voice acting to cutscenes and a story with some deep religious undertones if you care for that, and if not then you still get to blow lots of stuff up and capture enemy ships and bases. In fact there are countless decisions you get to make about how you want to set up your ships and even which ships you want to take. Moreover I pose that you have likely never played a space game quite like it, as it has elements of RTS thrown in and on top of that your ships are ALIVE and can be genetically modified to suit your desires, and changed on the fly to boot. Plus the music and visuals are quite appealing, so if you can get it to work then it is easily worth $5 or more. Good luck!

The game is broken. Millions of error messages when I load it up, then it dies. None of the fixes available worked for me. Don't bother buying it.

After I recieved a message from my supposed best friend of six years to buy this game, I was a little dismayed to find out it was in fact complete and utter rubbish and I would have been better placed to bet my money on the Queen's Head sunday league team winning the champions league.

First of all to make the game even playable you have to edit folders and such sorcery in the game's root directory. I do not want to be doing this. I'm one of those people that still believe computers are run by magic. I just want to play. Fortunatly for me, my 'friend' talked me through the set-up and his timeless advice of 'press ok until it works' when faced with error messages only four seconds into the game really displayed his numerous IT qualifications.

We both bought it with the intention of playing co-op, however I discovered after three minutes of sheer laughter down my microphone that online support had been withdrawn. Luckily for me the only option that I could access from the main menu was the credits.

I discovered during watching the credits that the game had four advisors. I Would have thought that the first advice would be to make sure it works. At the time of writing my ex-friend is showing on steam as playing this game, I am sad to say he is silent. Dumbstruck.

I'd like to end on a positive however as i know a lot of hard work goes into developing titles, The credits are lovely.
Well Done Advised Advisors. Well Done

Here's a game that on the surface is quite interesting; first it's a rts in spaaaaaaace. Points right there,.

Ships are customizable, and the take on how the ships work (read - organic ships, with your main resource being 'blood') is certainly different.

But it all still falls flat; Its buggy - but not unforgivingly so, The cut scenes where juvenile to just plain boring. The ship combat was middling at best and restricted to a 2D plane and missions are nothing to write home about.

In the end the game has many problems easily forgivable on their own but this entire game is just one misstep after another. Get on special or not at all.
