Shattered Union Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: For those wondering whether Shattered Union is their cup of tea or not just imagine playing a slower and more precise version of an early Command & Conquer without any of the super-powered (unrealistically so) weaponry and unrealistic units. The story is well crafted if not a little underdeveloped as the game progresses. There is an admirable amount of depth to the gameplay as territories can be conquered using a wide assortment of strategies.

  • Excerpt: It’s rare that a game has a decent plot. Even rarer is a strategy wargame that comes with any plot at all, rather than relying on simple historical accuracy. Shattered Union is a strategy game (hexagons and all) that sees the United States of America suffer its second civil war. An unpopular president is voted in and after violent demonstrations he calls the Homeland Security bill into play, declaring martial law.

  • Summary: Featuring a United States ripped apart by a divided electorate and a spot of Russian sabotage, Shattered Union offers a timely and gripping backdrop for strategic turn-based battles, where North America is carved into six regional factions locked in bloody civil war. But while the game’s premise is a fascinating take on politics across the pond, the action itself is deeply flawed.

Shattered Union Xbox Review

  • Conclusion: Should you buy it or not? Well, sadly I would have to say no. Even though the game tries some new stuff in an attempt to invigorate the genre, it really doesn’t offer anything new or exciting that we haven’t already played numerous times before. It pales in comparison to the likes of Advance Wars and Command & Conquer, and for me to concede that this is a great game in the genre it should really be surpassing or, at least, equaling those two games.

  • Excerpt: On ne peut pas dire que les wargames en tour par tour soient un genre des plus prisés par les développeurs en ce moment, alors quand il y en a un qui débarque, on espère toujours qu'il va nous faire revivre de grands moments comme ont pu le faire de leur temps sur PC Battle Isle (le premier du nom) ou plus récemment Massive Assault. Hélas, dans le cas de Shattered Union, c'est un sentiment de déception qui va dominer tout au long des parties.

  • Conclusion: Det er muligt, at man vil finde spillet mere interessant, hvis man selv er amerikaner eller har st�rk tilknytning til USA, men ellers er SU en lidt tom fornemmelse. Der er heller ikke rigtig nogen udvikling i historien bag spillet, s� det hele handler bare om at spille slag efter slag, til man har erobret hele nationen. Alt i alt en lidt skuffende oplevelse, der ikke tilfredsstiller denne anmelders strategi-lyst.

  • Conclusion: 10 /20 Malgré de bonnes idées de départ, Shattered Union n'arrive pas à convaincre totalement. Son scénario original, son IA de qualité et ses possibilités stratégiques intéressantes aurait pu en faire un bon jeu si la réalisation avait été plus soignée. De plus le nombre d'unités est restreint ce qui limite l'intérêt sur le long terme.
  • Pros: Enfin un wargame sur Xbox !, Scénario original, Aspect stratégique poussé, Excellente IA
  • Cons: Graphismes médiocres, Bande-Son insipide, Lassant à force, Peu d’unités

  • Conclusion: Det som drar ner betyget är delvis att förväntningarna och mognaden på den här kategorin av spel är ganska hög, det finns några missar och det saknas lite charm jämfört med andra spel i samma kategori. Ett annat problem är att spelet blir lite enformigt efter ett tag, du gör ungefär samma saker i varje slag, använder ungefär samma sorts trupper och besegrar datorn på ungefär samma sätt.
  • Pros: Bra kontroll, renodlad strategi.
  • Cons: En tank är en tank är en tank.
