    Great game play with no story

    Rated on April 05, 2008 by Raistlarn

    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 th...

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

    Rated on April 05, 2008 by thepwninator

    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 d...

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

    One of the greatest games of all time.

    It does not fit into everyone's style.

    Rated on July 26, 2006 by OMGBORONBBQ

    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 pow...

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

    Rated on October 14, 2004 by geraldw

    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 ...

    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 ...
