Product Description

Warzone 2100 is a real-time action and strategy game set on earth in the 21st century. Upon entering the postnuclear world of Warzone 2100, you establish your base. Here you conduct research, design and manufacture vehicles, build new structures, and prepare your plans of global conquest. Each campaign features a large campaign map and six or more sub-maps. As key objectives are reached on the campaign map, missions are activated on the sub-maps. These missions are varied and feature everything from hit-and-run attacks to holding territory. The combat is fast and frantic with amazing effects and a true 3-D world with rotatable and zoomable cameras. Weapons range from bullets and lasers to explosive weapons that blast large areas of the highly detailed 3-D battlefield.

From the Manufacturer

In this sophisticated strategy game you have to defend your central command post and push back the approaching hordes. By gathering resources and researching different components, you will be able to piece together customized units to tackle the specific task at hand. Using a robot camera with a killer zoom lens, you get an unobstructed view of the action, which takes place on a fully rotatable 3-D landscape.

Warzone 2100 is the strategy game to end all strategy games. The storyline is great. You're able to build structures like the factory, HQ, and Research Facility. And you're able to build units each with different bodies, wheel systems, and weapons. And almost every mission has artifacts you can research so you can build more units and structures. Also, even at the easiest level of challenge the enemies are always tough and intelligent. And they're always better equipped then you, making it even more difficult. Overall, this is one of the best games for everyone, not just strategy gamers.

I can imagine it might seem odd that I'm writing a review for a game that's over 2 years old, and has practically no fan base, but this game is worthy of praise. To introduce the game, you are the leader of a band of people who took shelter in a military base after a nuclear war. Several years later you come out of the base to begin your new lives, however, you are not alone; there are other survivors who do not take kindly to competition.
The game is a bit hard to get used to, allowing full 360 degrees of camera motion (allowing you to get up close and personal with your enemies as your units blow them away), as well as zooming and other actions, much like Sierra's Ground Control. The graphics are not top of the line, but that can be expected from an older game (for those of you with newer computers, this will allow you to crank the graphics up to the max).
For the RTS fans, this game is a vindication, with features that put Starcraft and other modern RTS games to shame. The in-game interface is strange at first, but after you get used to it the controls allow for incredible depth in ordering your units, building structures, even managing your base from another map. Almost every mission has a time limit, however these limits are not designed to be constricting unless you really drag your feet; The average limit is an hour, with some missions allowing two hours. Most of the action will be conducted away from your base, utilizing dropships to get you to your destination. This adds a particular challenge to the game, as each trip in the dropship takes 5 minutes, and only carries 10 units, you will be forces to use your men wisely. In some missions, you will be required to defend the dropzone from enemy attacks, which adds whole new complications.

Warzone brings a unique approach to the RTS world of games, focusing primarily on research and development rather than resource management. This concept may sound familiar to those who recognize the name "Earth 2150", a better-known but overall dismal failure released after Warzone in an attempt to recreate this new style of play.
Ingenuity and cunning is the name of the game in this real-time strategy, and a player quickly finds that mastery of Warzone 2100 lies in strategy, not the familiar tank-rush. The many dozens of unique weapons all have very different effects between structures, emplacements, bunkers, walls, hardpoints, cyborgs, and four styles (five with the version update) of vehicle armor. The main thing to remember when tackling this challenge is to think on a more realistic basis, rather than the video-game belief that any weapon will do a set level of damage, no matter what it's fired at. For instance, a flame-thrower may roast out a bunker, but don't expect much of an effect on a wall or tank. Also, don't expect everything to be in close-quarters; advanced bombardment weapons like Hellstorms and Ground Shakers can punish a base from afar, while the screen-crossing ArchAngel cruise missiles and the multiplayer Laser Satellite Strike leave no hiding enemy safe. Just make sure they're in sensor range.
As previously mentioned, the main point of Warzone is to research different technologies so that you may construct the specified units of your choice. The technology is arranged in a complicated tree, and for some techs in one "branch" to be discovered, technology from other branches may need to be researched. This brings an unavoidable drawback to the game: there is a lot to remember.

I generally liked everything in this game. It's 3D capabilities is what I like the most along with the many, many artifacts that could easily help you win the game if you have the right ones researched. Then once you research your artifacts, you can place them on your very own units. The artifacts have special specs like weight, armor, speed on water, speed on land, speed offroad, rate of fire, damage, etc.
The only problems I found were trying to figure out which items to research before I could research something else. I needed a research tree, for example, "if you research the light cannon, you will then be able to research a light cannon hard point..." So I endlessly clicked on artifacts to research, just so I could get a little closer to what I really wanted to research. The other problem is in multiplayer, the games can get to be so out of sync, that your whole base and army alike can be destroyed but what I like to call "The Glitch Men". You'll notice a Glitch Man when your opponents units are set to fire at will, on your screen you'll be able to see a nearly invincible unit shooting something you have over and over again, on your opponent's screen, he'll see a calm group of units, peacefully not fighting anyone in the game. This can also work the other way around. One time, my opponent saw my units coming at him, so as any smart person would do, he destroyed them. On my screen, I had a peaceful army just standing there, not anywhere close to his units, being blown up spontaneously right out of the middle of no where. I nicknamed the result of such action "Spontaneous Machine Combustion". All in all, it's a great game, but with a huge flaw in multiplayer.
