A perfect commanding, strategy game. I played this with my brother all the time, it was really fun for the both of us. All three factions, Illuminate, Cybran and Uef have its own unique unit and factory designs, the three factions have different ideas with factories or units. Like how the Illuminate has a Darkenoid an experimental air ship completely different to the other two factions. How Uef has a big connection with your commander like how enemies can't locate you on their radar, Cybran and Illuminate doesn't have that sort of access. Or how the Cybran has naval units that grow legs out and crawls its way onto land.
I love playing as Illuminate, its not because of its interesting designs or unique abilities of some what. I just enjoy my units being capable of walking in and out of water instead of having to waste another whole energy and mass on a naval factory. And if I needed to retreat there is always an island to head to just to build my base there instead if my main territory gets destroyed and taken over.
My brother plays as the Cybran or Uef, those are pretty good factors too. I mean if you had the DLC as a Cybran you'd be able to create yourself the Monkey Lord from which some of my old friends confirm as the most powerful experimental unit in the game. And how the Uef has the King Kriptor which I think seems to be the most powerful experimental out of the Uef.
When me and my brother played together I'd take control of the air while he takes control of the land, because land units is his thing and air units is my thing so we just put those two elements together to make a perfect team, thats what makes the game fun for me, we work our own ways and do whats best to try take down our opponents. We build massive bases together like a high security prison which is also quite fun because its hard for our enemies to launch nukes until they destroy our overpowered defense system.
I'm addicted to this game, I'm always in the process of building up my defenses first, not that I'm useless but that without defenses how are you gonna protect your commander? I always get through to the point of building up my air factory, it takes time you don't need to rush through the start of the game. But hey thats how I roll, if you wanna go another way thats up to you, don't need to judge how I play my way in games.
I wish more of my friends got this game, just so I could play with more friends and enjoy playing with other people besides my brother constantly.
Fantastic game! 100/10
