Eternal Gaming Network
9 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Total Annihilation is a piece of legend in the gaming world. Many old timers swear by this game. It is one of the oldest, most played, and most mod-able RTS game to date. Thousands of mods (short for modification) were created for this game and alot of major ones are still been updated today. The game was released in 1997 by Cavedog Entertainment, headed by Chris Taylor. (Chris Taylor is considered as one of the gaming gods who stand toe to toe with Sid Meier.
  • Pros: One of the best RTS games to date, excellent sound and graphics by the standards of the year the game was released, excellent gameplay, laid the basics of RTS gaming.
  • Cons: Some path finding problems for units.

Total Annihilation Review

GameSpot
20 November 2006
  • Excerpt: The gaming industry is gearing up to bury consumers under an avalanche of real-time strategy games. Every developer is touting the one or two features that will help its game to "redefine the genre" - but the majority of these features do nothing but take away from the precarious balance which made the big two - Warcraft II and Command & Conquer - such runaway hits.
  • Pros: N/A

Total Annihilation: The Core Contingency Review

GameSpot
12 April 2006
  • Excerpt: This expansion pack for Cavedog's Total Annihilation features 75 new units (plus all of the units that were made available for download and through other sources), 25 new single-player scenarios, and 50 new multiplayer maps (including six new terrain types). Bearing this in mind, "expansion" may be a bit of an understatement. What we have here is an avalanche of new material, which, depending on how you view it, may or may not be a good thing.
  • Pros: N/A

Total Annihilation

Tom's Games
17 March 2014
  • Summary: Les STR sont à la mode en ce moment. Des suites de Warcraft 2, on en voit passer tous les jours et il semble que seul le très en retard Starcraft pourra un jour nous faire revivre les sensations du jeu de Blizzard. Mais parfois, des surprises tombent du ciel (et sur mon bureau en l’occurrence) et celle-ci est de taille. Personne n’avait jamais entendu parler de Total Annihilation et de Cavedog, le développeur américain du jeu.

23 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Une technique exceptionnelle, des unités à foison, une dimension tactique unique et un multijoueur diabolique... Total Annihilation fut sans conteste l'un des meilleurs (si ce n'est le meilleur) RTS de son époque : voilà de quoi fêter dignement un 150ème test !!! L'histoire de Total Annihilation commence dans un lointain futur, à une époque où la civilisation humaine s'étend à travers la galaxie.
