Summary: A lot of things could be said about this overlooked gem of a game, here are some of them: Innovative, imaginative, fun, funny, weird, engaging... I could go on and on. There are no bad sides to this game that I could think of. Pick it up and have some fun.
Summary: This long winded VA circle jerk of a game hardly bares any revolutionary gameplay. The irony that such a title barely made a dent in the industry- being to coin a phrase: "unique when compared to its superiors only in terms of art design." Its not a good way to start off when your title starts at the end with whats-their-face Protoss campaign narrator prattling on about some overly long and boring mystery plot.
Summary: An excellent game with lots of innovative ideas. Great story, and a very nice touch with reloading "this is not what actually happened". The artwork was amazing for the time. Really one of the best games ever, and surely one of the best in the RTS genre.
Summary: A very much underdog game it got passed up by a lot of others and that truly saddened me, this game has a mix of RTS and a magical FPS system too it, you're down in the fight and controlling the units is surprisingly easy for not being above the action. The game is charmingly funny and while the story is not the most engaging thing in the world it is quite fun to play through many times over for the branching and changed story lines.
Summary: I bought a copy of this game based both on its reviews and its now reduced price. I have to say that it has been one of the most entertaining games I've ever played. Conveniently, it loads onto and plays directly from your hard-disk, - though unless you've stacks of memory left, don't expect the landscape renderings to be as high a resolution as they could be. That being said they are quite sufficient and quite attractive enough.
Excerpt: Visually, Sacrifice excels and delights, standing out clearly from the crowd - although only if you have the hardware to match. You can run it at what the game describes as "insane" detail at 1024x768 and really appreciate the extra detail and clarity that the resolution and 32-bit texturing brings.
Excerpt: Update 24-1-2001: Major overhaul of the opinion, added description of the game itself. ~~~~ Well... I have read about the game a lot, and just had to see it for myself. I've just started on Sacrifice, and I in large agree with Laurence. Controls are a bit dodgy (why not use the quake key-settings, why no strafe left-right), but in total, I think I'll get used to it. Even better, you can re-map your keys.
Excerpt: Where to start, well if you have seen any screenshots you will not have failed to notice the INCREDIBLE graphics, the levels are simply HUGE (with a double capital H) there is absoultely no-where you cannot go in the levels. Before I get carried away and start talking about units, I'll tell you about the background. The game is set in the form of a story, you start while the earth is blowing up and then tell a blind guy how you got here.
