Oil Rush

  • 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 a little conflicted.

Game Debate

  • 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 future.
  • Pros: Looks quite pretty, Imaginative design, Genre-blending
  • Cons: Unpolished, Poor dialogue, no speech, Some gameplay issues

  • Summary: Het is opvallend om te zien hoe het Tower Defense-genre zich de laatste jaren heeft ontwikkeld. Waar het klassiek een volledig nieuw type strategiegame was, werken ontwikkelaars tegenwoordig steeds meer toe naar het klassieke RTS-genre; je kunt nu zelf units bouwen en de route die vijanden kiezen ligt niet langer vast. De volgende stap is dan Oil Rush, al is de vraag of we hier nog wel kunnen spreken van een Tower Defense speelstijl.
  • Pros: Aardig concept, Leuke visuals
  • Cons: Matige uitwerking, Slechte AI, Geen diepgang

  • Excerpt: Oil Rush har et af de mest kreative spilkoncepter vi har set længe. Det foregår udelukkende til søs og det opfinder en helt ny genre af strategispil, som en blanding af to eksisterende genrer. Men er kreativitet og nyskabelse så også nok til at få boretårnene til at vokse ind i himlen? Vi har efterhånden set en del spil der tager udgangspunkt i Verden efter en altødelæggende atomkrig.
  • Pros: Flot grafik med suveræne vandeffekter, Interessant ide og omgivelser
  • Cons: Bliver hurtigt kedeligt, Spilles udelukkende fra ”mini-map”, Meget lidt variation
