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.

I love the building archicture, the way the bases are built, the building of units, the limitations on units and resources (sometimes) that force one to think "out of the box" to get through some of the missions.
And, I like the comic book like hero characters that I take through the campaigns. This game is a world away from the Command and Conquer series, and it is more difficult for sure.
If you're an RTS gaming nut, I would highly recomment giving this one a try.
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.
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.
