No one will like this game, this game is just terrible it is a plague. There is no strategy involved, you have to make thousands of troops in order to do anything, even if you make the best trooper you still need an army to support it. Not like it matters because you can just watch your thousands of troops miss the one enemy they are firing at. I fail to see one good thing about this mess, everything about this game is terrible, do not even bother with this game.

Stormrise is the WORST game i have ever played. It was supposed to be a new way to play games like Halo Wars or End War but it failed terribly. Controls are very hard, its hard to tell what is happening to seperate units, and the mission directions dont help you do anything. I cant say anything about the story for i havent beaten the game or will i ever beat this game. Graphics are well polished, characters have ok personalities, and acton looks good. I am really having a hard time thinking of good things about this game, its that bad. I would recommend this game to everybody with a fireplace cause this game deseves nothing but to be destroyed. I will end by saying not to waste your time by ever playing this game.

I had this game in my Xbox for less than 1 hour before I packed it back up for shipment back.
#1 - The really bad POV controls. The tutorial (if you can call it that) only gives you the most basic controls. Nothing else. I was left to figure out how to join units, pull units, watch units. #2 - I hated the interface, confusing mimi map, no real feedback on the troops, real bad unit selection with that "Whip view thing" #3 - The units were impossible to control. If you need to send troops more than a few inches on the screen, moving troops across the field is near impossible in POV. #4 - Instruction on new 'features' come up during missions, you have no time to absorb, let alone learn to use it, before you are wiped out.
The graphics and audio were fine, cut scenes were pretty good, but after a frustrating hour, the game is going right back.
