Planets under Attack is way better than its name

Quarter to Three
3 January 2013
  • Excerpt: You can’t fault Planets under Attack for a misleading name. Sure enough, a lot of planets come under attack, so it’s got that going for it. But such a flatly descriptive name doesn’t express how smart this game is. It deserves a name like Spaceward Ho, Star General, or Reach for the Stars. Something operatic and sci-fi and maybe even a little gotterdamerung. Is “Off the Shoulder of Orion” or “In the Dark near The Tannhauser Gate” taken?

Planets Under Attack

  • Excerpt: Your old man croaked and left you a mountain of debt. Time to head for the stars, mine planets for riches, and beat back spaceships bent on your demise. Unlike most real-time strategy games, Planets doesn’t feature a variety of units, or even give you direct control over army movements. Instead, you pick a planet to invade, specify how many ships to attack it with, and watch minions stream into battle from all your occupied worlds.
  • Pros: + Challenging series of varied solar systems to dominate; four-way online warfare.
  • Cons: ? How did zombies learn to fly spaceships?

  • Conclusion: In Planets Under Attack fehlen zwar wirklich actionhaltige Momente, wobei das bei diesem Game nicht stört. Im Test konnten wir keine gravierenden schlecht ausbalancierten Vorteile entdecken. Wem das Setting gefällt, ist mit "Planets Under Attack" sehr gut bedient.
