the realtime cutscenes are so close to the athmospere and visual quality of the CG, its unbelievable.

Amazing sci fi art, great visuals.

Too bad its a RTS, boring genre IMO.
If it ever became a 3rd person shooter like Space Marine/Gears of War, I would love that.

I never never liked RTS, never seriously played a single RTS before. But recently I decided to give it a try after watching some pro matches (which were very entertaining btw). I then bought the game.

Buying the game was one of the best decision I have ever made.

I played SC1 in the old days and Warcraft 3 and a bit of Halo Wars...yeah, very boring genre IMO, not my type.

Stunning CGI effects...as always. Blizzard is the only one who really can compete with the Final Fantasy CGI videos/cutscenes.


Warcraft (3) and Starcraft > best RTS games out there.




@Sath

Halo Wars is just bad. Everything what's important for an RTS game is missing there. It's a shame that Halo Wars is a product from Ensemble Studios, the makers of the Age of Empires Series (great games but AoE2 is still the best out of the whole series). HW is just a huge dissapointment. Even the Command & Conquer 3 console versions are better stratgey titles.

I guess RTS genre is pretty boring to me as well. Maybe SC2 is better than I thought.

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (8 Hours ago)

    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (8 Hours ago)

    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (8 Hours ago)

    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (8 Hours ago)
