I bought this game in the UK and would be still playing it now but unfortunately the copy protection prevented me playing the game in NZ when I tried to register it locally…wierd.
Story: It follows on from 2150. Everyone gets away from Earth and then as (bad) luck would have it in the universe in all its infinity… they bump into each other again and get right back into it, fighting that is.
If you liked the other Earth games give it a blast !
For those who haven't played any of the Earth series, it's quite unique in that it was one of the first games where you can design you're units for specific purposes e.g. a mech with a plasma cannon plus a cloak generator and a rocket launcher or maybe a mech with 3 plasma cannons for maximum firepower…it's up to you. What's more you can save unit designs for future play.
There's a big Tech tree which like a lot of RTS games requires a stack of resources to purchase/upgrade.
If there was a bigger online community this would still be a great game for multiplay.
