Star Alliances Review
By Brian Egan |
Star Alliances gives the player massive amounts of customization with the ability to jump into the midst of interstellar war instantly. The game takes place in a galaxy with hundreds of environments in which war can rage simultaneously. Environments range from any of the 8 planet types and 5 planet sizes, to the orbit above those planets, to the very center of any of the 100+ star systems, to the cold outer reaches of space.
The graphics for this game aren't too bad, although it doesn't hold up to some modern titles, they still look nice and have good detail. The strong part of this real time strategy game is that it has a lot of depth without being too overly complicated. Creating and commanding units won't be a problem for beginners, making it much easier to get into.
If you are looking for a good RTS with an outer space setting, you may want to give this one a try.
