What Gamespot Users have to say about Earth 2160

    Earth 2160 next gen RTS but does it take a few steps back from Earth 2150.

    Rated on January 11, 2006 by fungmi_gs

    I’ve been playing RTS games for a while now warcraft 3, earth 2150, command and conquer and homeworld are amongst my favourites. You can imagine the excitement when I read about a sequel to earth 215...

    wants to be different but instead it is unenjoyable

    I didn't play this series before, however I'm a RTS fan and I've played more than 100 RTS titles. So I decided to play Earth 2160 but I am disappointed. The first problem is running the game. The fir...

    Good: Graphics, alright sounds<br /> Bad: CONTROLS, Gameplay, Registration<br /> Other Thoughts: Don't Buy It

    Rated on January 16, 2006 by Grinch123456

    I'll start off with the gist of this review: don't spend any more than 20 bucks on this. As a happy jittery little boy who loves anything that can be played on a computer, I love RTS's (and FPS's a...

    Doing things differently can result in two things. Either the result is innovation, or as is the case here, disaster.

    I have to admit that i tried Earth 2160 based mostly on its dangling carrot of innovative gameplay elements. Designing your own unit sounded cool, as did 4 radically different races with different sty...

    Very innovative game that breaks the "me too" mold with a flavor and uniqueness that make it stand out. Georgeous.

    Good - Great graphics, innovative and fresh gameplay. The ability to create your own units. Disctinct factions make for a different playstyle and good replay value. Bad - Voice acting and pacing co...

    What is everyone complaining about?

    Rated on February 14, 2006 by ac190075

    Ok. So the campaign is a Starcraft copycat. Thats pretty obvious - also given the way the Aliens mimic the Zerg. In spite of that this game isn't bad. If anything its good at the least. I played the d...

    Gorgeous graphics... but this game is bogged by strange mechanics, interfaces, poor sound and wacky amateur music.

    Rated on February 21, 2006 by Cablestein

    I've been seeing screenshots and reviews of the "Earth ----" series for years now. It's always been an intriguing curiosity seperate from other mainstream RTS's. It seems to have a strong fanbase on i...

    Beautiful graphics, movie-like...storyline needs work but the skirmish mode is awesome, as reality pump did in the past.

    What happened to changing the terrain?

    Rated on February 27, 2006 by Fallenwanderer

    I doubt everyone agrees with me but I sure miss being able to tunnel underground and I really miss being able to dig trenches. Those were some of my favorite features in the 2150 trilogy. Not to men...
