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.

  • 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...

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...

Expert Review

GameSpot
2 February 2012
  • Summary: Waterworld is a different take on post-apocalyptic life, one where the breakdown of civilization doesn't lead to desolate wastes but instead results in a watery grave. Gaming has largely ignored this sort of apocalypse, but Oil Rush brings such a world to life in a real-time strategy/tower-defense...
  • Pros: Interesting blend of real-time strategy and tower defense, Art design creates an engrossing setting, Plenty of variety in multiplayer maps
  • Cons: Uneven strategic gameplay, Some boring missions, One dreadful escort scenario

  • Pros: Aardig concept, Leuke visuals
  • Cons: Matige uitwerking, Slechte AI, Geen diepgang
