Really Bad

Worst game Played this year

I played for 20 minutes and just had to send it back. I felt like breaking it so that no one else would have to ever play this!!!

Really Bad

Good Story, Horrible Execution

Rented this one on a lark, and it's going back ASAP. The story's intriguing, the units are actually pretty good, but the control scheme? Ugh. Most of the time you'll be fighting the camera to get a good view of what you're going, the other half of the time you're whip selecting the entire wrong units. Whip selecting, where from your current unit you pick another unit to view/command by moving the right thumbstick in their direction, is not necessarily a bad idea, but once you get more than a few units out, trying to keep track of which unit you're trying to select becomes a pain. Unless they're nearby, you only highlight their icon along the edge of the screen, and similar units can't be told apart.

If this had the ability to use a somewhat more traditional select system, this could be a decent game. The control scheme completely sinks it sadly.

All the other reviews are right. I think this would be a really good game except for the controls. Its really hard to choose what unit you want to control.
