    This game is unique. It is a one of a kind game that lets you command mass armies of tanks, robots, and jets. I am very impressed with this game. I have had this game since 2 months after it came out. When I played it, I... Read Full Review

    Great game play with no story

    Total annihilation is in my opinion one of the best RTS's released at its time. Total Annihilation was by far one of the games that further refined the strategy series, by refining it took some of the annoyances out of ... Read Full Review

    Total Annihilation is, without doubt, the greatest RTS of all time.

    Total Annihilation, released in 1997, is one of the few real time strategy games I have played that actually involved *strategy*. TA involves immense thought, both in economic and tactical planning due to the unique res... Read Full Review

    Total Annihilation although lacking todays graphics is still a breathtaking game.

    One of the greatest games of all time.

    It may seem strange that I am reviewing a 1997 game in 2004, but given Gamespot's recent induction of Total Annihilation into "The Greatest Games of All Time", and the strange disappearance of all other written reader re... Read Full Review

    It does not fit into everyone's style.

    Well, Total Annihilation, in my mind, is kind of overrated. Anyway, I'll continue on with the review. (I haven't played this game for a while so I'll recall). Anyway, this game tells a story of power struggle between ... Read Full Review

    8 years old, and still the best RTS game ever made!

    Will anyone ever make a RTS game that competes with this one? I really love all of the base defense weapons, and the large selection of troops/vehicles. I like long drawn-out battles, where tons of resources are pumped... Read Full Review

    Total Annihilation came out before Gamespot has the option to write a review back in 1997. Now that I'm here, let me do some justice for this often overlooked Real Time Strategy (RTS) game. I can't believe it's been ov... Read Full Review
