Horrible

Broken beyond repair....

I had been looking forward to this game for awhile, depsite all the bad reviews, but the truth is, its broken beyond playability. I couldn't organize my troops or formulate even the simplest of attack strategies. The camera controls made playing the game a confusing chore, and the storyline was bland, and frankly bordered on copywright infringement.

If you have'nt played this yet, save yourself the trouble and avoid the worst RTS experience you'll ever have on the console.

Do not waste your time

This was an epic failure on nearly every front. Yes the cutscene graphics were great. But, as another poster said the quality in-game tried too hard. It came across as washed out. They seemed to strive to put a ton of detail in each of their maps but the drab coloring made it seem as if some kid had come in to color the map.

The controls were a complete nightmare. Characters were hard to follow. Movements were a mess and dont get me started on missing a character. One of the main things they tell you is not put yourself alone. But, before you barely had a chance to do anything but begin to position your troops you found yourself alone. With noway besides sheer luck to differentiate yourself from the haze of other characters your commander would find himself alone and having to fight off minions on his own. Whilst you frantically search for the deeper meaning behind "There is no spoon" and bend the Matrix to find where the heck your guy is.

The tutorials were so slow you could barely contain yourself from hurling your beloved controller at your precious wide screen LCD. Sound, was good but not spectacular. Game play as you can read above was beyond trivial. Controls ludicrous. Visuals perfect and craptastic.

All in all I barely wasted my time on this diatribe. Someone fire the makers of this because they ruined a potentially awesome game.

This was an overall good game, the story took a while to get through so there's plenty of game play time in it however one major flaw with this game would be the whip select it really made selecting units difficult.
