Tryst

Square-Go
21 October 2012
  • 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. Tryst is fairly standard sci-fi fare; your human colony is under attack by aliens, your dad is dead and so now you’re the President (er?), and must climb into your fanciest space marine suit and lead the armies of humankind to victory. Because that’s… what Presidents do best?

Tryst

Strategy Informer
18 October 2012
  • 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 have a few hours’ fun delving into multiplayer matches and figuring out your best build queues before moving on.

Tryst

Hooked Gamers
5 October 2012
  • 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. I’m not sure if that is by design though, but I’ll give the developers the benefit of any doubt. Unfortunately, the humour wears off fairly quickly due to the repetitious lines that the units throw out.

Expert Review

GameSpot
27 September 2012
  • 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. Speedy missions and a straightforward base-building-and-battling recipe pique your interest for a little while, but a fleeting campaign, inconsistent difficulty, a range of irritating bugs, and the absence of anything interesting in...
  • Pros: Fast-paced campaign missions offer exciting combat
  • Cons: Short single-player campaign and limited multiplayer options, Incredibly long load times, Good number of bugs cause crashes and affect core aspects of gameplay

Do Not Trust Tryst

Game Debate
26 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Tryst is an RTS game from Blue Giant Interactive, an ambitious team who have decided to take on two of the most popular competitive games of today, League of Legends and Starcraft 2. The plan was to successfully mix them together in an attempt to create something incredible, but unfortunately Tryst comes across as more of a jack of all trades, and a master of none.
  • Pros: Ambitious Idea, A Diverse Faction
  • Cons: Poor execution, Identity Crisis, 5 Mission Campaign

Real Time Strategy Takes An Alien Approach

GIN
24 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Strategy is a genre I've always enjoyed playing. When Tryst was introduced to me, I was curious to see what this game had in store. I've played all different sorts of strategy games from medieval to futuristic, but I have to say that Tryst really stood out. From the very first moment I started tinkering with the mechanics I had a moment of nostalgia. Tryst reminded me of a more alien version of the Command and Conquer series than anything else.

Tryst Returns to RTS Roots

GamingTrend
29 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Tryst is a sci-fi themed RTS game, reminiscent of the more well-known Starcraft series. It centers around the conflict between humans and a race of aliens known as the Zali. Like most games in the genre, gameplay in Tryst focuses on gathering resources, constructing bases, and maintaining a military force to fight the enemy.

Tryst PC Review

DarkZero
21 October 2012
  • Excerpt: The realm of great real-time strategy games (RTS) seems to be limited to the PC; the use of keyboard and mouse is the perfect method to control your army, and trying to capture that on a console just does not work. Recently, there have not been many RTS games to shout about, with StarCraft II stealing most of the limelight for the genre.
