    Jerky animation, confusing and random combat elements, along with a completely boring RTS commander mode, make this game barely worth purchasing. I really wanted to like this game simply due to the intriguing mix of gen... Read Full Review

    Savage is an original, highly enjoyable game that supercedes its small frustrations.

    It has been said that innovative games are hard to come by of late, but that isn’t necessarily true. There has actually been a great deal of recent originality in game deisgn; unfortunately, some of the memorable recent ... Read Full Review

    Osborne? I am beginning to hate the name. Planetside got 7.9. SW Galaxium Boredium got 7.5. Osbore gives Savage a 6.7 and says it is fair. Different games but similar quality. You are about lose subscribers. Get ri... Read Full Review

    Savage is an okay game. If you really want to experience the first person shooter plus real time strategy genre then download the free half-life mod "natural selection" which blows this game away and has voice over inte... Read Full Review

    Creative idea, Solid engine, not too much depth but hey.. it's still fun as hell. Simply put if you're looking for a game to play for years and years to come go buy Half-life or a MMORPG, but if you're looking for someth... Read Full Review

    While not on par with BF or other tactical shooters, savage provides an interesting diversion with a few unique items.

    Savage is based around a new genre of gameplay, the RTSS (Real-time Strategy Shooter). Basically, players form teams of mud-slogging FPS grunts, and a single warrior on each team takes command in a top-down, RTS style ga... Read Full Review

    Great LAN party game!

    Great ideas and mix of game elements but is unbalanced and has a rude/unforgiving player community.

    This game is fun to play just for its mix of game play. It feels like playing Rune, with RTS and FPS elements, with a big learning curve. Melee combat in this game is pretty clunky and has certain "tricks" to ... Read Full Review
