Gettysburg: Armored Warfare

Hooked Gamers
6 April 2012
  • Conclusion: That's the crux of the problem with Gettysburg: Armored Warfare - it's ambition is its greatest and worst asset. Whilst in theory the game is interesting, for a one-man developer it's completely untenable to make anything vaguely passable as good without an extremely long development cycle. Gettysburg could have done with at least another 6 months to a year of development to iron out the kinks and bring it into the modern age, but that hasn't happened.
  • Pros: An ambitious effort from a one-man developer. The RTS elements are actually well-made.
  • Cons: Suffers as a result of its ambition - everything feels substandard. No community, a tiny amount of maps and poor shooting mechanics. Broken command system.

Dawn of Discovery review (DS)

  • Excerpt: apart from many of its peers is the focus on multiple regions. It's never enough to just settle a single island, since certain resources are always out of reach until you expand to another island. This wrinkle adds a surprising amount of depth and forces a level of strategy that feels quite unique.

  • Conclusion: Немецкий градостроительный сериал включает в себя вот уже шесть частей, а на родине (то бишь в Германии) считается одной из лучших стратегий всех времен и народов, уступая пальму первенства разве что сериалу . Секрет успеха, конечно, понятен. С каждым выпуском разработчики, во-первых, все выше поднимают планку качества графики, во-вторых, постоянно модернизируют и улучшают геймплей. И новая исключением не стала. Этой игрой, ей богу, можно просто любоваться.
  • Pros: отличная графика; приятный и увлекательный геймплей; дружелюбность к игроку.
  • Cons: сражения могли бы быть и зрелищней.
