Oil Rush

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Late last year, Anno 2070 tried to explore the post-apocalyptic setting of an Earth flooded by drastically risen sea levels, where Kevin Costner would have to drink his own filtered pee. If you just wanted a new Anno game with shinier graphics and a new, futuristic setting, it offered a fun way to dabble in a rather depressing dualistic future in which you tried to out-build hippies and evil industrialists.

Review: Oil Rush

newgamernation.com
12 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Overall, Oil Rush is a mixed experience. The gameplay is somewhat limiting, with a control scheme that is overly simplified and lacks the features of a full RTS game. The voice acting is weak, and there were a few technical problems that interrupted gameplay. However, there is a silver lining to be found in the style of graphics and fun multiplayer experience.

Oil Rush PC Review

DarkZero
20 March 2012
  • Excerpt: It’s not the first time a graphics benchmark company has experimented in making a game with their own engine. Futuremark (the developers of the benchmark tool 3D Mark) did it a few years ago with Shattered Horizon . Now Unigine Corp (makers of the GPU benchmark Heaven DX11) is releasing a game that uses their Unigine Engine.

Oil Rush Review (PC)

Yet Another Review Site
4 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Great budget RTS, with plenty of charm and style Oil Rush – I’m sorry, but not the most exciting gaming title ever. Iceberg Interactive have managed to make this futuristic RTS-come-tower defence title, with it’s fast paced combat and simple build mechanics, sound like a plodding strategy sim set the Old West.
  • Pros: Good, interesting RTS gameplay, Simplified, yet with enough challenge to maintain the fun for most of the single player, good story, with some engaging characters, great jumping off point for newcomers to RTS gaming, good graphics and overall feel is excellent
  • Cons: Gets repetitive, lacks the depth regular RTS gamers would expect, some voice acting is terrible, and borderline jingoistic, tower defence elements get stale quickly

Oil Rush review

Gamedot
23 February 2012
  • Conclusion: Oil Rush isn’t your bog standard RTS or Tower Defence game. It takes the best aspects from both genres and makes for a very good game. The gameplay is simple and easy to pick up, and hours can be wasted away playing just one mission. However it is let down by a poor frame rate, which undermines the quick decisions you need to make.
  • Pros: Hours of gameplay. Very challenging. Simple to to play.
  • Cons: Can be very unforgiving.Huge drop in frame rate can hamper your ability to give commands.

Oil Rush im Test: Indie-Strategie auf hoher See - Starke Engine, günstiger Preis.

5 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Oil Rush muss sich im Test beweisen. Das SciFi-Strategiespiel ist das Erstlingswerk von Unigine Corp. Und die Entwickler haben einen guten Job gemacht - zumindest für ein Low-Budget-Spiel.

“Oliebaronnen blijven altijd bestaan”

evilgamerz.nl
6 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Dat de Apocalyps eraan zit te komen moge duidelijk zijn, althans, als we de game- en filmindustrie moeten geloven. Ook over de wijze waarop de wereld ten onder zal gaan lijkt men het eens te zijn, namelijk een nucleaire oorlog. Hoe vervolgens ons bestaan eruit gaat zien staat echter nog flink ter discussie. De meesten denken dat we te maken gaan krijgen met een woestenij waar bijna niks meer kan leven en de mens gedwongen wordt onder de grond te leven.
  • Pros: Mix van strategie en tower-defense, Afwisselende missies in de campaign, Ook speelbaar voor Mac en Linux gebruikers
  • Cons: Te weinig controle over eenheden, Geen overzicht over de hele map, Slechte voice-acting en muziek

Oil Rush

4 March 2013
  • Summary: Мало кто ждал чего-то от Oil Rush . Ядреное сочетание русского игропрома, не особо популярного жанра, отсутствие громкого имени и большого бюджета у разработчика сделали свое дело – многие не посчитали игру достойной внимания, и ошиблись. Не фатально, но достаточно сильно, чтобы пропустить одну из ярких стратегий начала этого года. Да, она далеко не для всех - местами слишком проста и бесхитростна, чтобы понравиться широким слоям геймеров.
