Summary: This game SUCKS. Units completely non self-sufficient. Try telling your tanks to fire upon some other tanks, they decide to have a little picnic instead. You end up spending all your time playing babysitter to every single unit on your map, while watching everyone get shot to crap. Maddening. You will find yourself asking "why are my tanks sitting there, fully loaded, doing absolutely NOTHING, while 5 enemy units fire upon them." DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!
Wasn't even worth the $11.99 I paid for this game.

Summary: First issue, the game is boring at best. Very easy to play and win, no real challenge involved. The game has some glitches too, unresponsive controls, g-locks, and will boot you at times as well. I cannot say I got a good deal at $11.99, more like I got screwed.
Summary: I've been playing RTS since the beginning and found this game extremely unintuitive and utterly obnoxious. The map is pretty far zoomed out to see everything going on, so you are mostly looking at small boxes moving around the screen. Its really hard to tell what the hell is what and the units aren't very good about firing on their own. I'll create a mass of infantry, tanks, and support units only to watch them stop moving and get blown away by a couple enemy units.
Summary: Turns out this isn't a game you can download and play you have to go to another website and download their software of which I have been waiting for 10 minutes to start loading. I always have a hit or missing relationship with amazon and this time they are selling a product that confused me and now I just have wasted 13 bucks. Thanks amazon for selling a game that isn't really a game. you suck!!!
Summary: I was expecting a more thoughtful, intelligent strategy/tactical gaming experience. Not there. Just way too much button mashing for the game to be any fun. I like to play Combat Mission, Crusader Kings 2, Chess and Arma 2/3. This was a bad buy for me. Hope you like it though, as it is expensive.
Summary: The marketing blurb promises that this game is not just another RTS, yet that is exactly what it is: just another RTS. Which is to say that sound tactics count for nothing and spamming buttons as fast as possible* counts for everything. If you do not like RTS games in the Command & Conquer style you simply will not enjoy this game. As with most RTS games the basic problem is that the individual units have no intelligence at all, they all have to be micro-managed.
