Reviews

“I like it when a game tries something different, and I like it even more when it gets it right. SunAge´s singleplayer is challenging, in a way I haven´t been challenged by an RTS since I first played StarCraft.”
90% – Honest Gamers

“SunAge ends up being a very good RTS and takes the genre back to where it belongs.”
85% – Gaming Console Network

“SunAge is an enjoyable RTS with a visual style similar to the 2D offerings of the 90's. It has a great formations system and gives the player a feeling of issuing orders to their units, not micromanaging them.”
80% – Gaming Shogun
