Product Description


Save the world or destroy it as you take charge of several unique factions with awesome powers and spectacular units. Control massive-scale alien war machines that are fully customizable. With on-the-fly tactical customization, you can dynamically swap out weaponry, rework your tech tree, and retrain units in the middle of combat to thwart your foe and seize the advantage. This advance on the traditional rock-paper-scissors model of balance gives players even more control over how they respond and adapt to their opponent's strategies.

Universe at War: Earth Assault features large-scale environmental destruction in a persistent world-level a city and when you come back, the area will still be a smoking ruin. Here, though, the environments you are fighting for are close to home, as you wage war across familiar Earth landmarks and cities.

The entire globe is at your command, as you manage resources, armies, and territories in the real-time strategic mode. As your heroes lead your forces into enemy territory, you will be taken into fast-paced tactical battles where the emphasis is on combat and action. A seamless integration of both the strategic and tactical mode allows you to call in reinforcements from other territories while engaged in ground warfare and take tactical troops back to the strategic level when you win so you can use them in later battles.

Universe at War: Earth Assault features innovative new multiplayer features inspired by today's top MMOs and competitive online environments, giving players achievements, rewards, and medals but in a balanced environment. Each of the game's factions will have unique paths to victory with completely different styles of play, allowing players from across the globe to battle it out in persistent-style online campaigns for ultimate faction supremacy.

I learned about this game late in the development cycle. I am a huge fan of real-time strategy games, having played all of the major ones (Warcraft, Age of Empires, Dawn of War, Command & Conquer, Battle for Middle Earth 2, etc.). I usually try all of the games that release a demo first and was impressed with the demo for Universe at War (UaW), even though it didn't include a sample skirmish mode. I decided to get this game and certainly do not regret it. While quite good, it still needs a few tweaks, which is to be expected with a new release. But it's a welcome addition to a genre that has had too many duds as of late.

Gameplay: This game features the three most diverse races that I have ever seen in a game. The Hierarchy fields massive, ominous walkers that double as both assault units and production buildings. The Novus are a robotic race that is highly mobile, thanks to the ability to construct "flow" networks. The Masari--supposedly the inspiration behind human civilizations--feels a bit more convention in RTS terms, though they are still quite unique with light-dark fighting modes, no resource-collecting, and the best-looking buildings (besides the walkers) in the game. This is not like your typical RTS game, where if you can master one race then you can play them all. Each race offers a very different gameplay experience, which should add a lot of shelf-life to UaW.

The game comes with a few different gameplay modes. For single-player, there is the campaign, a Risk-style global scenarios mode, and skirmish. The campaign allows you to play all three races, in addition to the beleaguered humans whose planet has become a battlefield for aliens. It's a good story with decent missions, though the missions are fairly conventional for an RTS game (i.e.

Wow, theres never been an RTS Like this since Starcraft 2!

Such diversity in units, Interesting storyline and the graphics are to die for! Very enjoyable to play. My only complaint is that i wish the camera was more adjustable to zoom out further.
Giant walkers that trample through cities like War of the Worlds! I had a blast playing this game and i recommend it to everyone.

Not too graphic or violent either- so older kids can play it too. I think this game is perfect for anyone that likes pc games and theyre between 12-40 years old.

What's fantastic about Universe at War? Well lets start with the separate races...they're GREAT!!!

Ok, first up is the alien invaders. They drop down Fortress-Pods that DESTROY every major capital on Earth. What's cool about it is that you feel like it is actually happening. The White House gets wrecked! Scary stuff. But once you start USING these Huge Fortress-Pods you understand why they are warlike. They're SO fun to use. Secondly, your resource gathering is SUPER fun! Your robots go out and basically recycle old cars, houses, EVERY PIECE of human stuff they can find, even rail-road tracks! OH! And their eye beam is a Disintegrator beam!! And their other tech is even BETTER!!!

Second race is the Alien Robot dudes. Unlike ANY game I have ever played, they travel by setting up a series of wireless power-lines or nodes. Then when you send them somewhere, they turn themselves into LIGHT and travel through the nodes! Faster than light travel ACROSS THE BATTLEFIELD! Their units are really weird and futuristic too, and though they are somewhat fragile, once you learn how to mass and attack you can take out any enemy, even the fortress-pods.

The third race, the humans, are very weak until the alien robots equip them with their tech and they build better tanks. Even after you get advanced tech though your casualty rate is alarmingly high. You'll decimate a fortress-pod, but at the cost of an entire regime of troops, hundreds if not thousands of soldiers. I didn't use the human faction much, so I don't have much to write about them, though some players focus solely on them.

In short, this game is like Starcraft if Starcraft had MUCH better Writers than it does. I am saddened they have not come out with a 2nd.

it's a fun game...but you can only play the first part offline...the other half is online. so i only can review half of it... because i have dial-up.

it's like spellforce with a whole end of the world twist. now i like rts's and rpg's so for me this was a great game... but many people say it's bad... but that's probably because they never played a good rts.

the graphics are great, the music is kinda cool, the gameplay is super easy, and the story is pretty good.

overall a really cool game... if you like waiting forever to play it online.

i recommend the spellforce series if you don't have the fastest internet known to man!

I've tried playing the game on my Windows XP x64 edition machine, but it was sluggish and crashed constantly. Even after I installed three patches, it was still unplayable. However, on my Windows Vista Home Premium, it works fine. And no it's not a hardware issue, since my XP machine has a better graphics card and processor than my Vista machine (it's a laptop).

So do not buy this if you are planning to play it on a Windows XP x64 OS!!!
