Conclusion: In truth, the slow opening of the game might discourage most players. Although the game does a really good job of tying in each of the campaigns, the storyline doesn't amount up to much. Still, that's not the point here. Once the game gets going, even with the mentioned drawbacks, it rarely gets dull and is guaranteed to please even the most demanding RTS enthusiast. The game also sports an outstanding soundtrack and superb sound effects to keep to going all the way.
Pros: Unit variety, AI, engaging gameplay, battles get tantalizingly epic, multiplayer, wonderful soundtrack;
Cons: Takes a while to get going, a bit demanding for mid-range rigs, mundane storyline.
