Editors' Review

+
Like other real-time strategy war games, A.R.S.E.N.A.L. Extended Power requires you to research technology, amass resources, build fighting units, and attack opponents while defending your home turf. But A.R.S.E.N.A.L.'s intelligent scoring system, multiplayer team play, and variable character personalities create an entertaining and replayable experience.

Players begin by selecting their character's name, face, flag, and nationality. Different flags provide access to different special units, including an atomic bomber. By commercial standards, the graphics are only serviceable, though a new Deep View, near-3D mode in the latest version improves them. The essentials are there, with large maps and clearly distinguishable units and buildings. The game features some witty audio effects, and the computer makes a tough opponent.

However, A.R.S.E.N.A.L.'s interface for selecting units can be confusing, and the lack of instructions makes learning the hot keys difficult. We encountered graphical glitches. And the demo's 20-minute-per-level time limit isn't enough to finish even the shortest battles. Nevertheless, the wicked AI and humorous touches make this an enjoyable download for players willing to stick it out.

    "Amazing game"

    February 18, 2013   |   By DragonSlain

    Version: A.R.S.E.N.A.L Extended Power 2.H

    Pros

    Control of own army. 7 other AI players to verse or ally with. Research is quick, building is quick, everything keeps moving, doesn't get boring. Draws your mind away from other things in the world.

    Cons

    Visual and sound quality is not the best. Easy to forget about a squad you were attacking with. Become a Monster, ally with the Tektons and their greedy nature will send 100 tanks down to where you are attacking, they'll take houses, take the HQ and build wherever possible. (Just be a good guy). Saving will break the bonus points advantage. Pissed me off after 10 hours playing, I saved regularly. My score was 230,000 with over 800,000 bonus points still adding.. Sooo annoying.

    Summary

    Fun game, countless hours of playtime. A bit unfair, but still enjoyable.
    Note: Set yourself a challenge! Attack someone who has a lot of land, or is sending out attacks. They won't take action until you approach their base, but by then, you've already won.
