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

The novel charm of Oil Rush is often marred by its strategic limitations.

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

Oil Rush Review

  • Conclusion: So what you're left with is a game that has a great little concept, a wonky campaign, AI bots that aren't quite up to the challenge of challenging you and somewhat dodgy netcode. It's incredibly frustrating, because the core concept works, and it works well.

  • 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?
  • Pros: Flot grafik med suveræne vandeffekter, Interessant ide og omgivelser
  • Cons: Bliver hurtigt kedeligt, Spilles udelukkende fra ”mini-map”, Meget lidt variation

Oil Rush

PC Only
2 May 2012
  • 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...
  • Pros: Aardig concept, Leuke visuals
  • Cons: Matige uitwerking, Slechte AI, Geen diepgang
