A.R.S.E.N.A.L Extended Power

CNET 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.

    "Its impossibly stupid without full version"

    December 14, 2008  |   By AEP addict

    Version: A.R.S.E.N.A.L Extended Power 2.F1

    Pros

    I have a solution for you guys.
    I will report in an hour or two,once i have uploaded an older version,in which you can BYPASS the auto-shutdown feature and continue normally playing untill you defeat your enemies,not bail in the middle of the game.

    Cons

    Everything.

    Summary

    The link to the old arsenal2 version will be on rapidshare soon.
    For information about how to hack the game to play full time,
    e-mail me at
    dejan.puskas@gmail.com OR
    wizard2579@hotmail.com
    Peace!

    "Engaging, fairly complex war simulation."

    November 30, 2008  |   By lacanuck

    Version: A.R.S.E.N.A.L Extended Power 2.F1

    Pros

    Easy to play, fun, requires complex strategy to win, diplomacy is interesting, big picture easily accessible.

    Cons

    Simplistic, could use more varieties of units (ie. spies, more complex tech tree)

    Summary

    Generally fun to play, simple war simulation.

    "Wonderful game - you should try it"

    September 27, 2008  |   By johnbrown9876

    Version: A.R.S.E.N.A.L Extended Power 2.F1

    Pros

    ARSENAL Extended Power is an unique strategy game in real time.You have diplomacy for making alliance with AI and other users. It is available an online game server,a game editor,a map generator and an ingame MP3 player.if you buy it you won't repent

    Cons

    However the online game community has only 5 players in total-It is by you make it increase...There is no game manual nor any game reference.The game,really unfortunately,it is updated only once a year.Also you can make only 1map/week with the editor

    Summary

    I reccomend you to first download and try A.R.S.E.N.A.L. Extended Power judging it. If you start playing, you will not stop... In this game you can find lots of features other games haven't.
    There is a new price offer, you can buy it for only $ 9,90...

    The interface is really easy to use, but there is no support nor manual, learning it could be difficult. If you need help you could ask on the forum:
    http://arsenalextendedpower.2ksite.com

    The AIs are really clever, it isn't easy to beat them, you won't get bored playing thousand and thousand of hours. But the best side of the game is the Online one: you can challange people trough the world, and play a game up to 32 players

    Each year there is an online tournament where the winners gain free licenses.




    For any question, i repeat, ask on the forum
    http://arsenalextendedpower.2ksite.com

    or email me ( brown.john665@gmail.com )
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    So: the file size is very low (only 55mb)
    the price is very low (only $ 9,90)
    Just try it. Maybe buy it... ( you buy it online with a credit card)

    "Great game, needs more player support, try it & buy it."

    July 25, 2008  |   By plato_03

    Version: A.R.S.E.N.A.L Extended Power 2.F1

    Pros

    This game has alot of really great features, like the diplomacy and negotiations that occur between players...
    Online play is a really cool feature as well, letting players coordinate attacks and plan strategies in a coherent and intuitive way.

    Cons

    it needs more players. there is a community of hardcore arsenal players, but that community would do much better with even more people...

    Summary

    All in all, if your going to give this game a try, you will probably have fun with the demo for a while, but if you want the REAL fun of the game, you should check out the online play...

    Version: A.R.S.E.N.A.L Extended Power 2.F1

    Pros

    I only play the demo, and I already love it. The most fun part is that you can go diplomatic. You can have allies, and enemies. Somehow it is just plain fun.

    Cons

    THE DEMO SUCKS>< IT GOT NOTHING. IF YOU GUYS HAVE THE FULL VERSION CAN YOU PLEASE SEND IT TO ME? ALSO THERE IS NO CHEAT IN A.R.S.E.N.A.L. If anyone knows a cheat please talk to me.
