This game is a good reminder of what strategy games can be. New and innovative unit selection is easy but somewhat innefficient at times since it only selects one unit at a time. Apart from some small glitches and problems with selecting units i believe this game is fun, has a great stroy, completely new and innovative angles to see the action from, and a great spread of characters to choose from, and not to boast the game even more but its made by strategy experts creative asembly, who made games such as shogun: total war. Not perfect but a start of a great franchise in my opinion.
the worst game ive ever played the controls are confusing, the story is point less, and the way you control the units are stupid its like a 3rd person shooter with stradegy game controls. so if your planing on geting this game then you're probably going to call suicide hotline.
This game is utterly Amazing. Granted it did have a bad start, possibly was rushed to be released by the guys who sign the paychecks, but the developers of Stormrise [CA: Creative Assembly] are Very hands-on with the fans, something that you cannot say about most. They have already patched it with a LOT of fixes and polish, and another patch should soon be released with even more.
Whip Select is not nearly as troublesome as a lot make it out to be, in fact it can be more effecient and quicker than the standard mouse movement in other RTS Games.
Single player couldve used a lil more polish with the voice acting and scripts, but eh no biggy, its all in how the game plays right? And play well it does. Despite a few hiccups theres really nothing game breaking. The biggest trouble is getting over its initial learning curve, this RTS is -far- different from other RTS games with how every unit handles and acts. They are alive people, treat them as such and listen to what they say. Take cover whenever possible, move slowly but steadily. Keys to winning are keeping your enemy in a Crossfire, while keeping yourself out of it.
I eagerly await the future of this game, as with every patch the game improves by tenfold. Pity reviewers rarely look back on how games evolve. :(
