    Diverse factions, something "fresh", Well worth buying.

    Rated on May 08, 2008 by Deihmos

    The main drawing point of the game is the faction diversity, blows all other RTS games right out the window (and about time too). Once you master one faction you will still be absolutely clueless abou...

    Universe at War doesn't have enough strong points to help it ascend to greatness.

    Rated on December 29, 2009 by Vravage
