Were is the strategy?

Summary: Although I do like this game, and it has quite a bit of different skills, upgrades, and research upgrades, I have to ask: were is all the strategy? Every battle consists of building as much as your class is capable of as fast as you can, and then overwhelming the other army. There is really no strategy to it. It's still a fun game though if you want to waste some time, and all the stuff you can do is pretty cool.

Summary: Little bit too boring for me. Maybe great for teenagers. I couldn't even pass the first level as I got bored. Same old thing, same old rules just different graphics. I was expecting little bit more, more of a twist.
Summary: I have played many RTS games on the PC including since the original Warcraft and Dune 2. On the console I've only played Halo Wars, C&C Red Alert 3 which were all fun to play on the Xbox 360. I rated this game 4 Stars for fun, because it's a really enjoyable RTS game that progressively gets better the farther you get into it. Unfortunately, I only got to play about half way into the game due to a game breaking bug.
Summary: Universe at War is just an awesome game. I do own quite a few RTS-styled titles for the 360. While they are solid in their own ways, I feel that Universe at War is just better overall. It is easy to pick up and play thanks to its no-nonsense tutorials, which I recommend completing as with any game that features a tutorial. Now please take note that the tutorials featured in the Tutorial menu of this game are merely just videos.
Summary: I love games like this (a sleeper hit) and I would never buy them or even find out about them if it wasn't for playasia and their sometimes awesome prices/deals. This game is a fun, balanced RTS game. Their are problems. It can be a little clunky at times, but I would not blame the controls. It is hard to bring an RTS to consoles and I could not name a single RTS on consoles that has "better" controls.
Summary: While Universe at War could have been a glorious game, comparable to Starcraft in how different the factions are, there are some issues that make it considerably less than it could have been. First of all the most glaring example, units are too strong. Every fight lasts minutes because units have so much health and so little damage.
Summary: This game is fun to play, but you have to have time to play it. It can take a good long time for the "pieces" to get to where you need them to go. Also, some of the lager "pieces" need to be told where to go repeated, which can be very annoying. That aside, I love to play this game. I've been playing once a day (and often twice) and am getting better at what type of "pieces" to create and how many. If you like strategy games you'll like this one.
Summary: This game is very tactical and perfect for players that like to lead. It is not what you expect at first, but the more you play it the better it gets. Overall I give it 5 stars and I recommend it for players that have played Star Wars Republic Commando because you basically have authority over a grand army, it's just not first person and you need to use your smarts on how to build your army.
