Summary: OK, about Gemini Wars… If I have to describe it with one sentence it will be: A dream has come true! The game is a space based strategy in which you have to command space ships squadrons and to maintain goods production in the planetary systems under you control while defending against different...
Excerpt: I don't usually step into first-person when writing these reviews. After all, it isn't about me, it's about you the player. However, this game is written in Unity so I have to note a combination of bias and over-criticalness about how I view this game.
Pros: • Plenty of eye-candy, • More relaxing than most games in the genre
Cons: • Lackluster research tree, • Very slow gameplay, • Missions drag on unnecessarily
Excerpt: “Space”, Douglas Adams tells us in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, “is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is”. But if videogames are to be believed (and that might admittedly not be a desperately clever rule of thumb), most of space is filled...
Conclusion: As we’ve said elsewhere, with Ironclad bidding farewell to Sins of a Solar Empire for the moment, and with Sword of the Stars II still very much a work in progress, games like Gemini Wars are a welcome sight.
Conclusion: My frustration with the game reached new heights when I installed the patch and consequentially lost the save game of a mission that I had been playing for almost an hour. It stung greatly having struggled not only with the interface but also with numerous failed assaults on an enemy position and –...
Summary: Space seems like an unfriendly place. Beyond the regular hazards such as the lack of oxygen, lots of floating junk, and apocalypse-causing chunks of rock and ice, there's also all the people fighting. Killing people in space, particularly with ships, appears to be rather popular.
Conclusion: With the amount of complexity involved, Gemini Wars can only be recommended to serious RTS players. However, you should definitely reconsider what you want from a game before purchasing this one.
Pros: Fantastic large scale battles.
Cons: Buggy. No multiplayer. Simple 'rush in with big guns' gameplay. Enemy never surprises you.
Excerpt: When you dive into video games, you sometimes crave an experience that will make you really think. Something that challenges your ability to plan ahead and ask yourself: How will this move affect me later on?
“Combineert toffe elementen met slechte afwerking”
6 September 2013
Excerpt: Als een fan van science-fiction zal je ultieme droom waarschijnlijk zijn om al je favoriete series door elkaar voorgeschoteld te krijgen. Vanwege de verschillende eigenaren van de franchises is de kans dat het gebeurt behoorlijk klein.
Pros: Afwisselende campaign, Hyperdrive en Stargates, XP systeem
Cons: Vaak vreselijk lang wachten, Afschuwelijke cutscenes met slechte voice-acting, Geen skirmish en multiplayer modi
Conclusion: Was soll man sagen? Gemini Wars ist wie eine 15 beim Blackjack, bei der man nicht weiß, ob man eine weitere Karte ziehen soll oder nicht. Es ist nicht gut aber auch nicht schlecht. Es weiß mit guten Ideen zu gefallen.
