Achron

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Time travel in fiction comes in two varieties. One is the sort of unexplained, mysterious force that you accept and don't question for the sake of entertainment, like in The Time Traveler's Wife or Back to the Future . The other is found in films like Primer and Timecrimes and is intricate and confusing, but if you pay attention you'll at least understand 25% of it -- you'll get the other 75% when you read the fan forums, unless you are smarter than me and are the one...

Achron Review

GameSpot
7 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Have you ever really sat down and tried to make sense of time travel logistics? The more you try to make sense of the inevitable paradoxes that arise, the more your brain threatens to turn to jelly. Developer Hazardous Entertainment has tackled the problem--and come up with some creative solutions--with its real-time strategy game Achron. In Achron, time is fluid; you can issue orders to your units not just in the present, but also in the past and in the future.
  • Pros: Time manipulation opens up a dizzying array of tactical possibilities, Three factions with distinct play styles, Long campaign and plenty of multiplayer maps make for good value
  • Cons: Abysmal pathfinding, Units look too much alike, Bad visuals and sound effects, A variety of sloppy details and missing features

Achron

Auracore MediaWorks
27 September 2011
  • Summary: Achron delivers on its promise for a time-travel RTS; unfortunately, it fails everywhere else.
  • Pros: Very unique and engaging time travel mechanic.
  • Cons: Almost every other aspect of RTS gameplay is executed poorly; slow, dull plot; interface problems; hard to tell units apart.

The Wargamer
7 September 2011
  • Excerpt: So you are playing your favorite real-time strategy game, and you make a really stupid move. Oh, how you wish you could go back in time and undo that errant command and save your troops! But, what if you could? Enter Achron, a RTS that centers around the theme of time manipulation: you can change past orders, or transport units to an earlier (or later) time and ambush the enemy.

Achron review

Shacknews
6 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Hazardous Software's takes the real-time strategy (RTS) games and adds a whole new dimension: time travel. Set in the 37th century, starship commander Captain Holloway leads a troop of dispersed humans on a mission to fend off an alien invasion across over 30 levels. RTS novices need not apply when considering Achron, anyone who has trouble with RTS mechanics like resource management and unit building will find the game's learning curve to be wildly steep.

Achron

bestgamer.ru
4 March 2013
  • Summary: Achron создавалась несколько лет, и наверняка многие геймплейные элементы были убраны в угоду такой составляющей, как перемотка времени. Увлекшись этой оригинальной идеей, создатели совсем позабыли о тех деталях, без которых современные стратегии не могут существовать. Хардкорные RTS-поклонники, без сомнения, оценят этот проект, так как найдут в нем для себя что-то новое.

  • Excerpt: Jeu de stratégie indépendant, Achron nous promet rien moins que de révolutionner le genre en permettant au joueur de voyager dans le temps. Un objectif extrêmement ambitieux qui aurait mérité davantage de moyens.
