Customer Review

on June 9, 2012
Playing this game again after... well, man, it's been 15 years since this game came out... is pure nostalgia. More than that, it's pure fun. Still. How many games have that longevity? How many can endure the test of time? Total Annihilation has and always will. It is the standard to which I measure all other RTS games, and quite frankly, few match up to it. For its time, the graphics were gorgeous and, you know what, they still are! The art style and especially the 3D terrain was so well done, that even now it looks pretty. And one thing this game got absolutely right was the explosions. They're beautiful!

Total Annihilation's descendant, Supreme Commander, is also a fantastic game and I play it regularly. Still, I dust off my ancient copy of Total Annihilation every once in awhile and lose myself for hours in it. Nostalgia for the many hours growing up I spent with this game, sure, but also genuine fun. Total Annihilation proves you don't need ultra-realistic, super advanced, power draining graphics and super sophisticated engines to make a good game. No, it just needs to be fun. Total Annihilation is fun, and it does it with technology over 15 years old. Take that, modern games!

If you haven't played Total Annihilation, then BUY THIS GAME RIGHT NOW. If you don't believe me, then scour the internet for Total Annihilation reviews. Notice a theme? Five star review after five star review can't be wrong, even after all these years.
