    "Interesting. Unfortunately, not so great."

    June 28, 2006   |   By woolymarmot

    Version: Ground Control 1.0

    Pros

    Fun for a while. It eliminates the farm-and-build mechanics employed by so many RTS games and has you make do with what you get at the beginning of the mission.

    Cons

    Finicky controls, weak graphics, and a pain in the ass camera. as a casual strategy game it is fine, but it tries to emulate games like "command and conquer" and "starcraft" and fails.

    "A Strategy Game for Strategy Gamers"

    April 26, 2001

    Version: Ground Control 1.0

    Summary

    This game, is, barring Homeworld, or Homeworld : Cataclysim, the best strategy game I have ever seen. If you like strategy games. This game is built to prevent rushes, and cheap tatics and concentrate on the main component of a strategy game, strategy. A feild that has been long neglected in some RTS games and toned down in others. After playing the demo of this game I went out and bought this, and, if you think the demo is good, you'll love the game itself, Multiplayer is unparalled in -any- RTS game. Again, the best skill in Multiplater games is strategy, it almost nullifies all rushes, if you have just a basic knowledge of strategy, planting troops on higher elevation, multiple specialty weaponry for specific units, and the buildings are amazing, possibly best size ratio (buildings:troops) out there in this game genre. This game, is not the best game ever created, or the most innovative, I'm not going to say anything like that. It is a very good game, a very, very good game. A game worthy of double it's hard drive space.

    "Excellent game, but frozes up my PC"

    February 21, 2001

    Version: Ground Control 1.0

    Summary

    The game has excellent graphics, sound etc. BUT, it frozes up my PC in the middle of the game. The game is so good, that I tried to play it 10 times - till the next frozen screen. It freezes up approx. every 10 minutes. I don't know what is the problem, I don't think I am the one who has to fix it. Anyway, try it - if you won't have the same problem I do - you'll be pleased.

    "Great graphics, but the game flat out sucks."

    February 07, 2001

    Version: Ground Control 1.0

    Summary

    The idea of a strategy game is to come up with strategies with which you defeat the enemy. In this game, all you do is march your troops around the map until you win. If you lose, it's usually becaues some of your idiot soldiers stood in front of your tanks when they were shooting and got themselves killed.
