    One of the best games ever

    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

    I dare to say, better than Supreme Commander

    This is a game that is 13 years old and still beats ALL RTS games that came out afterwards. It's not just what I think, its a fact. Cavedog is the best RTS game publisher and nothing can make me change that thought. ... Read Full Review

    Wow, how did I forget about this one!

    Since switching to Apple I have forgotten about what once was (and perhaps still is) the greatest thing about a PC. That is Total Annihilation. Amazing, breathtaking, without compare, how else can I explain it. I need... Read Full Review

    The greates RTS the century

    The bottom line is that this game is truely the greatest in its genre to this date. The game was released right around when command and conquer, and Starcraft were released. Although sails would not suggest it, TA was ... Read Full Review

    With genuinely special presentation and game designs, this game proclaims its uniqueness from amongst peers of its time.

    Total Annihilation opens with a cutscene that clearly shows that it has a different take on the sci-fi future, progressing to heated skirmishes involving semi-sentient robots who know of nothing but war and the scant rea... Read Full Review

    A superb game that is just too fun to put down.

    Total Annihilation is the very first RTS I played (got it at release), and I loved it. TA is a great game to play simply because of it's solid graphics, good selection of units, simple way to gather resources and that it... Read Full Review

    Best RTS ever. A must for fans of the genre.

    Total Annihilation is easily the best RTS in the genre's history. The game was and still is a bar which has yet to bested. Maybe Supreme Commander will improve it. I hope so. Storyline: The storyline in this game i... Read Full Review

    A very nicely done strategy game, and the one that brought me into the genre. Kneel before Big Bertha!

    The premise of the game is simple: two similarly armed factions are destroying themselves and the worlds upon which they battle. In the 1 player mode, you play as the ARMS against the CORE, and I found the 1P mode very... Read Full Review

    Mother of Starcraft.

    Total Annihilation is one of the best RTSs i've ever played. Just so damn good. Starcraft was very much like TA, but TA came out first and i think a lot of starcraft took after TA. I don't have the balls to judge which o... Read Full Review
