Detour (PC) Review

Brainlazy
9 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Detour is to RTS as Speed Chess is to Chess BUT with one caveat.  Detour has no single player, well it does but it’s not worth it at all.  It serves only as a method to introduce you to the game.  Outside of that, the AI is pretty worthless and the story that exists isn’t compelling.  Since this is a multiplayer focused title, it’s a catch 22.

PC Review - 'Detour'

WorthPlaying
22 January 2012
  • Summary: Detour is a road-oriented Real-Time Strategy game that takes a satirical twist on highway construction, environmental activist groups, and cartoon humor. Players compete against each other and/or AI opponents to outsmart and out-build them.

Review: DETOUR (PC)

Diehard GameFAN

  • Summary: DETOUR tries to bring something new to the RTS table with a fresh concept and an interesting play mechanic. Unfortunately, you’ll have to fight the bad pathing on your own side and a poor choice of User Interface to actually be able to play the game. Single Player is ok, but multiplayer is where the game is more fun, giving your far more options and bringing your friends into the mix as well as the ability to make your own maps for the game.

  • Excerpt: I am a road geek. Exhibit A: I take pictures of the ends of U.S. routes. So it should come as no surprise that a strategy game where you build roads has an added amount of interest for yours truly. DETOUR (more effective if shouted) is such a game: you are trying to allow convoys to traverse across the map by building the routes, and then using typical highway maintenance items like bombs and air turrets to prevent others from doing the same.

Detour (PC)

  • Excerpt: DETOUR is a real-time strategy game that sees players wanting to get from point A to point B faster than the opposition with the promise and allure of sabotage getting in the way. When players land on the main menu, they might notice that the keyboard can’t be used for navigation on it or any of its sub-menus (and others around the game) - a mouse will need to be used. If players can successfully launch a game… DETOUR’S sense of humor and potential for fun are apparent.

  • Summary: Trattandosi di un gioco venduto al modico prezzo di 7,49 Euro il nostro giudizio finale non può che esser positivo. La grafica e gli effetti particellari delle esplosioni lasciano un poco a desiderare ma forse da una parte è meglio così: potersi gustare questo gioco su qualsiasi PC in commercio è davvero un’ottima cosa.
