Product Description

Earth 2160 is intense, futuristic combat where your actions will help decide the fate of humanity. Only a few thousand humans managed to escape from Earth before its collapse in 2150. They spent the next few years terraforming on the red planet, breaking into three competing factions. In the year 2160 a strange new civilization awakens and a conspiracy is afoot. Choose, join a force or go it alone -- survive and thrive, or in death you'll effectively mark the end of the human race.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad if you like this sort of thing... April 14, 2006
I would describe this game as stable, oldschool coding in a world of advanced graphic games. It reminds me of a Sierra game in this respect. Some people had problems with it, but I've played the campaigns twice on two different comps with no bugs. There is a patch you get a link to by email when you register the game, but it is only to improve the functionality of the skirmish and online gameplay features, and doesn't affect the campaign in any way. I can't seem to win if I don't play on the difficulty setting Easy, however. I wanted to play a space game and this scratched the itch. There are four campaigns, each with about 8 missions, and some rather long movies between them to carry the plot along. The movies could've been better: it's not the graphics, but the sense that the voice scripts were not read in the same room by the readers, and cut/edited together to give a feel of synchronicity.

The gameplay is, well, hard. There are so many commands it takes a while to understand what to do to give that competitive edge. Every attempt is made by the game designers to alleviate some of this - fully customizable commands, etc; but the system defaults for keyboard/mouse control are as good as any... For example, it took me a long time to figure out how to attack with the Lunar Corporation "Ripper" ship. After playing it a while, though, it gets really fun. A Save Replay function stores a set portion of the game as a file so you can review your tactics later, or just watch how you annihilated the enemy. It is like Starcraft with a lot of additions, including customizable ships and a "hero" who can collect special tools to help them (armor and weapons). The campaign is like a cross between Aliens (the movie) and Stargate. I would say it's worth the $20 I paid for it, and I am satisfied.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the worst, could have been the best. December 31, 2005
It has a fun campaign, the graphics are really amazing. Skimish gets boring quick. Online play, leaves alot to be desired. YOu wont be able to play unless you have the same version as other people, and thier are many version floating around, and nobody seems to be using the version supported by the developers. I would not recommend buying this game if you are into online play. Otherwise, a good game

5.0 out of 5 stars to address earlier comments... April 27, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I really have to speak up about this great game. It's true the learning curve is a bit steep for some people, but the gameplay and graphics are both simply amazing. When the game was first released, there were several balancing issues regarding especially the Alien race; while I can't really say this shouldn't have been caught in playtesting, I would like to point out that the race is extremely unusual, being essentially a buildingless faction. As a result of the imbalances, a number of user-created mods were released; however, the most popular and effective elements of the mods were collected into an official and more-or-less accepted patch.

As mentioned above, this game is very hard to learn, but well worth it. To compare it to other popular games, I would say it's somewhere between Alpha Centauri (in gameplay; only realtime) and Starcraft (mostly in theme and style). If all you want is another 'Craft clone or a C&C knockoff, however, you would be well advised to stay away -- this game will overwhelm you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still playing years later August 14, 2007

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have enjoyed this game because it allows you to build different structures and different vehichles. I bought Earth 2150 and found the graphics to be so poor I quickly lost interest. I am anxious to see if Earth 2170 comes along...

4.0 out of 5 stars Earth 2160 October 7, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased two of these games at the same time, however one of the copies that was sent to me was specifically labeled "Not for sale outside of the UK" and would not work. I was hassled by the company that sold it and eventually got my money back, minus shipping which was the bulk of the cost. It is still a really cool game that I really like, but it is old and there isn't any online support or multiplayer. Playing against the computer is just dull and I have lost interest in wanting to spend more money to get another copy to play against my brother. We probably would have played for many days at a time. I wouldn't recommend this game because of its age now, but back in the day it was very good. I hope they come out with a new version, but I'm sure my PC's are going to be the next weak link and not play the new version. :( This was the sequel to 2150 that just wasn't available anymore, which was equally as cool.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice additions, small annoyances December 8, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Earth 2160 picks up shortly after Earth 2150. Humanity has been evacuated to Mars with the Earth no longer being inhabitable. The game has excellent graphics for the buildings, vehicles and landscape. People are done well but facial expressions leave something to be desired. Unlike the other Earth games, 2160 has voice actors and animated mission briefings. The voice actors are a very welcome addition. The interface looks pretty, though I miss the different tactics you could use for units in the other games. Also it can be difficult to manage large selections of units. Four different factions have 7 missions each. More missions would have been nice but the existing ones tell the story well enough. Three factions play similarly, but the fourth is very different and refreshing. I enjoyed it very much and would recommend it as a solid game with some nice additions.
