Summary: seriously....i cant even comprehend how horribly redundant of a game this is....the wipselect is terrifyingly horrible and will end up making you lose many men, not just to an army but even to one squad can kill everyone in your army, i have played many games of strategy, i mean...I PLAY STARCRAFT AND SUPREME COMMANDER, THOSE ARE REAL STRATEGY GAMES, this..........
Summary: I was lucky to have purchased this game at a really low price, and mannaged to get most of my money back on this terrible game.Broken controls, terrible control scheme, ham acting, this games flaws keep this game as one that should be forgotten and used only as something to start a campfire or something like this.
Summary: Once I started playing I quickly realized that this game is riddled with flaws. While the view is interesting along with whip select, they are both restrictive. Whip select becomes unwieldy when you have more units and it's easy to select the wrong one. Also, there is no attack command. Therefore, my units would move in and get shred to pieces as they just stood there forming up. I tried a skirmish battle and sent a massive unit (The Rage) against the enemy.
Summary: To keep this short and sweet. Horrible! Horrible! Horrible! That is all. well.... the controls were awful and the graphics were so choppy and bad I felt sick and to further a point to me the most important aspect of any game is "good controls" much like the recent Alone in the Dark this is just awful do not purchase this game.
Summary: What can I say? I was suckered into buying this game because I'd read some of the hyped previews that touted the 'full 3d movement and strategy'. Biggest waste of cash ever. The controls for this game are horrid, with no free roaming camera, which the developer tries to defend by claiming that it's 'strategic'. In fact, I could even forgive that if the other controls were actually usable.
Conclusion: I bought this expecting something more in the style of command and conquer. After sitting down to play it, I found that the controls were awkward, the camera was irritating and the graphics were ok. The new 'whip select' interface means you push the right stick in the direction of a unit to take control of them and see the map from their view point, but in the middle of a battle this is frustrating to use.
Conclusion: Unless you've got alot of patience and really want something to kill a few hours on a poor game get this. The developer's didn't really plan this game very well and would suggest you give this a miss
Conclusion: Stormrise to me is very confusing and hard it takes a very long time and can get very boring after 5 minutes, this is my first strategy game I have played and in my eyes it miught be the last. If you like strategy games and you have a lot of patience, this is the game for you.
