About This Game

The last days of man are at hand.. Two years after the Infinite War the once great warring nations now lie in ruins, and humanity’s hope for a brighter future is nothing but a bitter memory. A new, seemingly unstoppable enemy, supported by the zealots of The Order, now seeks to eradicate mankind: UEF, Aeon Loyalist, and Cybran alike. With their backs against the wall and staring into the abyss, the tattered remnants of Humanity’s forces must put aside old hatreds and band together as they prepare to make one last desperate stand. One last chance. An alliance forged in blood, steel and hope, they turn to face the dark.

Key Features:

  • New Units: 110 new land, sea, air, base and experimental units evolve armies to address strategic weakness or become the ultimate expressions of factional military doctrine.
  • Warfare on an Epic Scale: Fully realized navies, orbital weaponry and advanced counter intelligence technologies give commanders unprecedented, deadly new capabilities in what is already the most strategic RTS on the market today.
  • New Multiplayer Maps: New multiplayer battlefields provide new grounds for players to prove their supremacy.

This is hands down the best RTS ever made.
Pros:
- 1000s of units
- Simulated projectiles can hit other things. (I've seen an anti-air turret shoot down a nuke)
- Bubble shields
- MASSIVE experimental units
- Explosions
- Massive scale, the battleships feel impressive next to the smaller T1 units
- Scaling economy, you don't "buy" units like in SCII or a lot of other RTS games, you build them, draining your resources over the course of their construction time
- 1000s of units

Cons:
- The unit movement is a bit weird sometimes
- If you're reading this review you probably don't own the game yet, luckily this con is easily fixable

+Great modding support
+Fun single player (base game and expansion)
+Fun to play with friends against AI or human players
+Strong community support (FAF)
+Economy system that forces the player to keep a balance of energy and mass, coupled with factories being able to infinite produce a queue of units creates a different challenge to eco management compared to games like Age of Empires and StarCraft
+Gigantic robots
- Game runs very slowly after playing for an extended amount of time. The more going on in a map the quicker this happens.
-Publisher dead

Do check out the mods for this game. There are a lot of them. Many fix balance issues and create better looking explosions. If you are looking for more like this game and don't mind playing older games, check out Total Annihilation.

Game overall is awesome to say the least. You know,
  • Lotsa explosions!
  • Giant robots!
  • Small robots!
  • Exploding robots!
  • Fatboy The Battleship Tank Factory!
  • Monkeylord The Sneaky Git With Da Lazer Shoota!
  • Yolona-Oss The Rapidly Reloading Partybringer!
  • Czar The Heaviest Thing That Can Ever Fall On Your Head!
  • Mavor The Prove Of Cowardice!
  • And some more giant objects!
  • Tiny Tanks that are not yellow for some strange reason!
  • Exploding versions of all of them!
  • Flying rockets!
  • Exploding rockets!
  • Nuclear missile-bombs!
  • Sick nuclear explosions that lack only an equally sick guitar solo by Mister Torgue!
  • Flying aircraft!
  • Exploding and crashing aircraft!
  • Artillery that goes BOOM!!!
  • Mobile artilery that goes poof BOOM!!!
  • Tactical missiles that are all going "Caaarnival dayo!" from cruisers in all of your infrastructure worth 5k of sheer explosion damage each! I hate them!!!
  • Volatile generators that can cause a chain reaction and cause even more explosions!
  • One particular experimental bomb(okay, okay, flying aircraft carrier, shush!) that can bury a slightly damaged commander under itself, causing two huge explosions!
  • Thousands of entities that are causing even more explosions at the same time making your videocard fry itself on a imaginary pan!
  • Did I mention explosions yet?!
Now it's up to you whether you want to buy it or not. Mister Torgue would approve the everliving s**t out of this game, and so do I!

A lil' bit of campaign spoiler, without names. If you're Cybran fan and like one particular commander since SupCom... Brace yourself, Operation Meltdown is gonna be a rough one for ya. It sure as hell was for me, and it sure as nuclear hell was for one particular commander in Operation Mind Games.

Also, if you suddenly will see lack of ppl in matchmaking, look up Forged Alliance Forever, community-based almost standalone game upgrade with its own hub-lobby-thingie that only requires base game. It can also be pirated, but it must be certain version and as clean as possible, so buying the game is lotsa easier.
