.....every race has its own way .... just think about this game like Gears of War style 65 % of the game comes from many other RTS's but perfected in everyway & the 35% that remains represents the pure innovation ! I want to start a bit with the story because wooow you haven't felt or heard of such a story for Sci-Fi game till now its never done before & superbly put ..with twist & turns that will allways keep you wondering many paths for the next mission ... & you can't choose from the beggining with what race you play the campin everything is set in order like War3 style ...& the story flows swiftly .... making your mind want for more ... simply the artwork is amazing for each race they truly managed to make 3 distinct races from scrap & ough & the voice acting & dialog gives you sometimes the impresion that its meant to be a Sci-Fi movie ! The 3 races are totaly different & with pure innovative ideeas ...like the Hirarchy that uses giant walkers as a portable base & super strong & slow units ...they rely on brute force , then there is the Novus that is the most complex & fun but stressfull race because you can't stop for a 1 minute from moving arround ..... they are the trickster race & very fast bu with it you can own everybody if you know how to control it ...the Massari is in some way my favorite race ...its the most easy to use it has a light & dark mode ( strength & speed ...for short ) & the strategy relys on your best decizion of how & when to switch between the 2 stances ! Just immagine all of this put in multiplayer ...from which i have tons of fun playing with my friends .... for some players the feeling will be like an old C&C games like REd Alert not some EA game ...because this are the guys that worked on westwood ....so the game is like a cake ( C&C red alert 2 ) but with more than 1one cherry on top ....its an entirely new layer ! I think that every Sci-Fi fan that loves RTS's should think about this as a "must have" ! & don't look at the reviews from some sites ...because they are all a bit underrated by 20% !
