TIME STRATEGY GAME
of the HUGE number of RTSs this year, we find our winner to be...
When we get huge
lists of potential nominees for voting, you get huge amounts of differing
opinions. Many might disagree with our choice of Earth
2150 as the best RTS this year, but this is the game that simply
seemed to keep us attached to our PCs the most in the RTS genre. Ground
Control was a MASSIVELY close 2nd place and lost out mostly because
of the nature of its sub-genre--that of squad-based real time strategy.
Earth 2150 brought amazing graphics and sound and an enjoyable take
on complicated RTS gaming. Combining weapons in hybrid forms, tunneling
underground etc. were all great additions to the game. The fact that

2150 -"a new definition for RTS' of the future
to follow. Graphics and Gameplay both wowed me to want to play
2150 -"i really enjoyed playing it and i liked
the concept-it takes the 3D RTS to a more realistic level. The
depth of research was intricate, brilliant and E2150 is overall,
a new spin on an old idea"

Ground Control alone left other RTSs in the dust this year. But
in the end, when it comes to a complete RTS, Earth 2150 has it
and Ground Control doesn't simply because it decided to go the
squad-based route instead. I only wish we had a separate category
2150 -"My 2nd attempt at a 3d RTS and it turned
out to be my favorite (aside from Homeworld); great graphics
Trek: Armada-"The first Star Trek game this year
to begin the wave of Trek successes, i STILL think this game is
just plain good fun."
