Stormrise PS3 Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Whenever an RTS game comes to consoles, the main talking point is always the control method. Will it find an acceptable workaround for the lack of keyboard and mouse control? Or are your fingers going to be tied in knots, due to the sheer demand of it all? The Creative Assembly’s Stormrise is yet another console RTS which is attempting to find a solution to this problem with its unique WHIP select system.

  • Conclusion: Concept: A console-specific RTS game unfit for human consumption Graphics: The close action camera gives the game a different look, but it also highlights its generally bland visuals Sound: It's hard to blame the voice actors when the dialogue lines are this excruciating Playability: The onscreen radial unit selection system is confusing, limited, and not worth its few benefits Entertainment: Even those who are jaded enough to enjoy watching things crash and burn will...

  • Summary: Stormrise is a real-time strategy game that uses a unique unit selection system called whip select. Well, I'd like to whip something at the guy who thought of that. The idea of tapping the right analog stick towards the unit you want to command doesn't seem so bad at first, but once you have 20-plus units spread across a level, it's easy to select the wrong guy and whip yourself to the opposite end of the map.

  • Summary: In days past, if you wanted to play an RTS (Real Time Strategy) game, you were pretty much limited to the PC. As of late we have been gradually seeing more and more RTS games on consoles. We have even seen some nice ideas on how to get an RTS game to work well without a keyboard and mouse, which is by no means easy. Notable efforts include Halo Wars, and the intuitive voice control system of Tom Clancy's EndWar.
  • Pros: Some nice ideas..., ...like Verticality and WHIP unit selection
  • Cons: Horrible controls, Poor audio and graphics, Full of technical issues and bugs

  • Summary: Depuis quelques temps, plusieurs compagnies ont décidé d’offrir des jeux de stratégie en temps réel (STR) aux joueurs de consoles. Peu d’entre elles ont connu du succès, puisque la majorité des joueurs qui s’adonnent à ces jeux sont plus à l’aise avec un clavier et une souris. De plus, avec l’arrivée des titres tels que Tom Clancy’s End War et Halo Wars, la barre pour offrir un jeu STR de qualité est rendu e très haute.
  • Pros: +Le Whip Control +Offre l’opportunité de préparer des attaques stratégiques
  • Cons: -La prise en main nécessite un certain temps -Les graphismes -Campagne trop courte et peu intéressante -Peu d’options en multijoueurs -Parfois, ce jeu vous fera blasphémer -Le jeu devient ennuyeux
