Impossible Creatures

  • Conclusion: Very polished and very enjoyable. However the combat needs to be more involving. The unit creation/animal combinations are truly endless and engrossing but a more satisfying combat system needs to be in place so we can witness our creations in battle in a more detailed way.

  • Excerpt: It's not easy to break the mold, especially in the real-time strategy and shooter genre. You can improve the graphics and sound, but at the core we have not seen anything too new for a number of years. Impossible Creatures does bring new and exciting elements to the table, much to the joy of tired tank-rushing RTS gamers.

Impossible Creatures

The Armchair Empire
12 February 2003
  • Conclusion: creatures (defense, speed, hit points etc.) Flying/swimming creatures are accessed by building air/water chambers. If defense is your style, you can shore up your base with structures like the Soundbeam Tower or Bramble Fence. In a vacuous bubble, the prospect of combining creatures would create all sorts of wacky experimental fun. But in the context of real-time strategy, it becomes an unnecessary chore.

  • Excerpt: Microsoft game studio Relic has put together an RTS title that should appeal to the Dr. Moreau in all of us. Impossible Creatures allows you to design your own units to use in battle (how about elephants with pincers? burrowing ant-tigers with electric stingers?). Click here.

Impossible Creatures

Game Over Online
23 January 2003
  • Excerpt: A real-time strategy title that taps into genetics and enables you to combine different animal DNA strains into fearsome battle units - that's the pitch that Relic Entertainment, the progenitors behind Homeworld, are trying to bring to the real time strategy genre through Impossible Creatures. By default, you don't start off with any combat units. You have to make them. If that sounds interesting, it certainly is.

Strategic opus or clichéd rehash?

Web Wombat
3 January 2004
  • Conclusion: Impossible Creatures may not be the second coming of strategy, but it's a good game. It may not be a revolution, but it's definitely fun. It isn't perfect, but what is? Don't expect it to change your life, do your washing or cook your meals, and you'll get along just fine.
