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.

About the game


What's up?

    MikeManiac61 @alimokrane: I would say that the Soul series is "challenging" than hard. Like Grift said, difficulty modes can be poorly designed and give unfair advantages to the AI IMO. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX A lot of them do.. but sometimes difficulty modes are poorly designed too. But that's nothing new. People have been phoning in hard and easy modes for decades. (2 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane Why can't the AAA games have hard modes like those games, that's what's annoying... (2 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @GriftGFX: Nioh and Neir (not yet). They are on my list. I played Dark Souls 1, I played and that's hard for sure. But those games are very few.... we need more! (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Also there are plenty of non-FPS multiplayer games. But maybe if you're looking for a challenge you should be more open to stepping outside your comfort zone. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Have you played Nioh, Dark Souls 3, and Nier Automata? (2 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane etc.... (2 Hours ago)
