Oil Rush

Square-Go
18 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Ever wonder what GLaDOS was up to before Portal ? Based on how similar they sound, it seems she was providing AI assistance to a ruthless navy in the Waterworld landscape of Oil Rush . It’s a simple story really – most of the world is underwater and it’s a battle for resources.

Oil Rush

Game Boyz
17 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I'm not a big fan of Tower Defence. There are some variations that I truly enjoy, but the baseline idea just seems rather boring to me. So, along comes Oil Rush, claiming to be a mix of traditional RTS and Tower Defence (which is, of course, a subset of real-time strategy), and I can't help but feel...

5 June 2012
  • Excerpt: As far as strategy titles go, Oil Rush has to be one of the most compelling I've played in a long while. Set sometime in the distant future where nuclear war has rendered our planet a watery abyss, you, the player, are tasked with fighting a new war in an attempt to extract the world's remaining oil...

PC Review: Oil Rush

Video Games Reloaded
3 April 2012
  • Summary: Oil Rush is a competent RTS. It’s better played online as the campaign isn’t anything new, but it does a good job overall. It just doesn’t set the world on fire, but it’s worth a look if you need a new strategy game in your life.

Oil Rush

Hooked Gamers
27 February 2012
  • Conclusion: The occasional reset of the graphics settings and empty multiplayer server lists may deter some potential buyers, but all in all this game is a healthy mix of the two genres and plays surprisingly well as such. Despite my many grievances, I found myself thoroughly enjoying it.

8 February 2012
  • Summary: I started playing Unigine’s seabound strategy game Oil Rush a fortnight ago. Then I got distracted by a shard of light in the corner of the room, and before I knew it a fortnight had passed and I still hadn’t written up my thoughts on it.

Game Debate
6 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Oil Rush is a game that has two things really going for it. Firstly, it’s just about the best thing to ever be loosely based around Kevin Costner’s massive failure Waterworld, and secondly, it’s a showcase for the powerful new Unigine graphics engine, of which we will no doubt be seeing more in the...
