Conclusion: Whatever happens though, Tryst is a neat spin on the RTS genre that tries to incorporate a few new ideas that ultimately don’t quite add up. It’s interesting, baffling and - at times - bizarre whilst it lasts, and if the community ultimately flocks around it during the coming weeks, you’ll likely...
Excerpt: “Tryst” is not high on my list of Things I Would Name a Real Time Strategy Game. Things I Would Name An Adventure Game perhaps, or Things I Would Name A 2D Platformer. But an RTS? I’m not sold.
Conclusion: Although the visuals are on the mediocre side, the audio fares a little better. The voice over work, complete with stereotypical Russian accented English characters and the incomprehensible alien language is quite humorous.
Conclusion: Tryst is a decent game for a decent price but know going in that it has a fair number of issues that (hopefully) will be patched. Chief among them is an experience mired by a lack of fun and necessary information.
Summary: Your typical RTS games were once a staple in my gaming diet. From Dune 2 to Command and Conquer and then Total Annihilation, the genre advanced relatively quickly. Complexities were later added to the genre thanks to Warcraft 3 and later Starcraft.
Tryst's memorable title is the only thing that stands out about this otherwise forgettable and buggy real-time strategy game.

Summary: What stands out most about Tryst is its odd name. Otherwise, this real-time strategy game about a sci-war between humans and aliens is a generic clickfest based on the traditional Starcraft formula, and comes with a ton of problems.
