User Review

DrSepsis, Metacritic
15 June 2014
  • Summary: There's a lot of bad to this game and only a few redeeming features. In the 90s this would have been a somewhat enjoyable game, but not only are the graphics terribly outdated but so are the clunky interfaces. During the tutorial it would often skip ahead of itself mid-sentence before finishing its previous explanation. There are very few descriptions for what units and builds do, and There's a lot of bad to this game and only a few redeeming features.

"RealTime Strategy on a New Level"

David Leo, Mighty Ape
17 August 2005
  • Summary: Perimeter is a game that will at first confuse and bemuse you, then frustrate you, then reward you. The Perimeter experience is a tough one, playing through challenging level after level, with some so hard you wonder at first if it is really possible, then when you finally beat it it seems like all the stress was well worth it.

Perimeter

meggyloo, Ciao

  • Excerpt: The storyline of Perimeter has an almost religious theme. It follows a group of competing civilisations as they travel through interdimensional portals (guided by the voices of spirits) on a quest to find their way home. While the storyline may be clichéd the gameplay mechanics of Perimeter are unique and come as a welcome surprise to the stagnating genre of realtime strategy (RTS) There are a few key elements that set Perimeter apart from other games of this kind.
  • Pros: Innovative gameplay .  Slick presentation .
  • Cons: Occasionally sluggish frame rates .  Crappy storyline .

It could have been good

Werrf, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Perimeter could easily have been an excellent game. Unusually for an RTS, the emphasis in this game is strongly on defence. From the very beginning, you possess an impassable defence, the Perimeter Shield. This really sets the tone for the rest of the game. The production of units uses a very imaginative morphing system. You have three basic units, soldiers, officers and technicians, which can then be morphed into a wide array of other units.
  • Pros: Imaginitive, versatile production system, original
  • Cons: Frustrating, poor documentation, poor combat control

Lotta all'ultimo pianeta

Un jeu à l'ambiance étrange ...

Amazon
27 March 2005
  • Summary: Perimeter se veut le renouveau du STR. Très franchement je ne pense pas au renouveau... il s'agit plus d'originalité! C'est un jeu à part... Développé par une équipe russe de talent, le jeu est des plus déstabilisant au départ. Pas de bois à récolter, pas de minerais, des unités polymorphes ? Ici une seule base d'énergie la terraformation, des pylônes énergétiques extraient du sol l'unique substance du jeu...

Mal was Neues für Profis

Xirkonn, Ciao

  • Summary: Beim ersen mal spielen wird es einem schwer fallen die ganze Sache zu verstehen aber desto öfter man spielt, besonders wenn man Gegner hat, desto mehr Erfahrung bekommt man und um so mehr versteht man das Spiel und seinen Aufbau. Hat man erstmal durchgesehen macht das Spiel richtig Laune. Durch die starke KI wird es einem auch im Mehrspielermodus nicht langweilig. Aber auch die Story kommt nicht zu kurz. Auch hier hat man sich was ganz neues einfallen lassen.
  • Pros: Inovative Spielidee mit sehr intelligenter KI
  • Cons: Kein Spiel für Anfänger

Frischer Wind im Echtzeitgenre

Mr.Evil3000, Ciao
28 June 2004
  • Summary: Neue Ideen tun dem strapazierten Echtzeitstrategie-Genre immer gut. Doch nach den unzähligen Games dieser Art noch eine neue Idee zu finden, ist sehr sehr schwierig. Da muss man schon mit etwas anderem glänzen... Einer hervorragenden KI etwa. „Perimeter“ von Codemasters hat nun den Versuch unternommen, frischen Wind ins Echtzeitstrategie-Genre zu bringen.
  • Pros: neue Ideen, clevere KI
  • Cons: miese Grafik, unübersichtlich
