  • 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: 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.

  • Excerpt: Not too long ago I started getting fascinated with the old classical movies. Matinees are often very different from today’s special effects showcases. As we can see in movies like Bride of Frankenstein and The Mummy (the one from 1932), they had “special effects” back then as well, but they definitely invented some outrageously weird monsters.

Strategic opus or clichéd rehash?

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: I znowu poszukiwanie dawno zaginionego członka rodziny stało się zarzewiem kłopotów. Tym razem mamy lata trzydzieste XX wieku, w Stanach Zjednoczonych czas prohibicji i wszechmocnej mafii. Nasz bohater jest jednak ponad to. Nie pije alkoholu, nie stosuje innych używek (poza oczywiście tymi dozwolonymi przez system), z prawem ma do czynienia tylko chodząc prawą stroną ulicy i zakładając spodnie na prawą stronę. Jest zwykłym, wręcz przykładnym obywatelem.

  • Summary: Ich mag Echtzeitstrategiespiele. Ich mag auch freakige Spielkonzepte und bin tierlieb. Wer jetzt meint, ich würde „Impossible Creatures“ infolgedessen abgöttisch lieben, irrt. Selbstverständlich ist der Ansatz lobenswert. Bis zu einem gewissen Grad macht das tierische Zusammenwürfeln viel Vergnügen, schließlich ist die Idee nicht neu - schon in „Warzone 2100“ konnte man eigene Units zusammenschweißen.
  • Pros: Interessantes Setting, Immense Einheitenvielfalt
  • Cons: Eigenschaften z.T. ohne Auswirkung, Kloneuphorie vergänglich, Diverse KI-Macken

Viel versprechendes, aber enttäuschendes Echtzeit-Strategiespiel.

  • Excerpt: Die Löwengorillas setzen unseren fliegenden Kuhwespen ganz schön zu. [Quelle: ] Fledermaushaie statt Helikopter, Skorpionlemminge statt Marines - hört sich doch spannend an, oder? In Impossible Creatures formen Sie allerhand verrückte Kreaturen, als würden Sie mit Knetgummi hantieren: Sie verpassen Mäusen Elefantenbeine, geben Löwen Eulenköpfe, pappen Flügel an Fische.
