I was blown away by this game. I wasn't expecting a whole lot going in, and it surprised me to no end. The concept of blending Action and Strategy is something that I had long hoped for, but never seen done... or done well. But they really pulled it off quite nicely. All of the ships/planes/subs are a blast to control and the strategy is easily as deep as most other Strategy games out there now.
If you're a strategy fan, I highly recommend this game.
This game is not for everyone, as it can be very slow, but once you are within range, it becomes fast, and quick. My personal dislike was the voice acting and cutscenes in single player. The multiplayer is also very good, as it gives you more of a challenge than facing cpu controlled ships that don't use damage control or manuever.
If i had to give the single player rating i would rate it horrible. But it's the multiplayer action that makes this game so sweet. Many people find the amount of controls horrible but for me their isn't much to learn. Since this game was rented it was hard to figure out everything without the manual but the game provided it with the strength & weakness charts as well as tutorials to teach you to use each control. I also love the fact that it allow me to not only do strategies but to jump into any ship, sub or plane i want, which is one of my favourite things to do in the game. This is a great game and i was surprised to find it had such a low rating. This is one of the few games that i would give a 10
