Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Earth 2160 is the official sequel of the award winning EARTH series and continues the on going saga started in Earth 2140 and Earth 2150. Only a few thousand humans managed to escape from Earth before its collapse in 2150 A.D. They spent the next few years terra forming the red planet, developing new technologies and rebuilding civilisation. Over time each of the three factions "Eurasian Dynasty", "United Civilised States" and "Lunar Corporation" diversified enough to become completely separate from each other - but in the year 2160 something happens that could threaten the existence of them all. Will they join forces as a coalition, or will the age old animosities continue to cause interfaction war?

5.0 out of 5 stars not for the faint hearted... 4 Sep 2005
I've been playing these games for over a decade now and they usually play like this: build a big army then raid the enemy base. 2160 just isn't like that at all. It has a very steep learning curve; even after the second mission I was finding it a bit on the difficult side and I was on the easy setting - shame on me!
So it's a bit hard but is it any good. YES! It's a great game. It takes a while to get used to the freedom you have such as buidling your own vehicles using researched technology in a lego kind of way. The story line is grand if you like that sort of thing, I never pay attention to them in these games. The controls are good, very similar to Ground Control II and the like with zoom control and panning in their for looking about. In short, all the usual stuff is done well, very well.
There are many news additions to the RTS genre in here but the one that sticks out in my mind is the Picture-in-Picture function where you can tag an area and have it in a window to monitor. Although already seen in Empire Earth II the difference here is the FPS bit - it is possible to see the battles through the eyes of any one of your warriors on the field. Nice.
If you like RTS then you'll be impressed with this. Things have come along way since Dune II back in the Westwood days.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dont miss this game 6 Sep 2005
What a superb game. It has everything a real time strategy needs. Great graphics, and I say great I mean when you
zoom as far as you can into the ground, the detail is fantastic. Though I wish the building didn't go transparent
when I try and admire the detail on them.
The sound is good, though not great. Vehicles should really of made noises when you get close, such as the huge disk
shaped ships. Music is perfect and adaptive to all situations. Nice to see that they have still stuck with their
orchestral music and kept upto date with a 21st century style too.
Game play is super too with each race having its own distinctive style of play. I especially like the way the aliens
multiply, and the ED gun turrets move round the walls. Any RTS fan will defiantly get into this game very quickly
with the usual selection and navigation system. Also you can design and build your own units, tailor made to the
situation.
Some things didn't get moved from the previous game, for example there's no underground mode or bubble shields round
units. But a superb feature that makes up for all of that is the first person perspective mode. Imagine lining up
your huge army, and then switching to the eye view of a unit and watching the whole combat from there. You can even
drive round with the cursor keys.

3.0 out of 5 stars can be challenging but annoying. 2 Mar 2006
By A Customer
The designers of this game claim it plays mainly off the graphics card (whatever that means!). Your system may run high-end FPS games such as half-Life 2 or Quake 4 beautifully, but if you don't have a state-of-the-art video graphics card, in order to obtain a reasonable frame-rate, you'll have to turn down the resolution until the game feels and looks like computer games of ten years ago. There are bugs aplenty and serious flaws in the AI; in the LC campaign, for instance, heroine Ariah will unfailingly rush headlong into the attack against overwhelming odds and get killed, even when repeatedly directed to stop or go to another location. The only way to protect her is to immobilise her on a hilltop in an aerial unit. This is stupid! as is the inability of infantry or armoured units to climb even the simplest obstacles. Gameplay maps are extremely basic - there should be a random terrain generator or at least double the number of maps to make the Skirmish games interesting. Campaign gameplay alternates between dull games that a Chimpanzee could win in minutes and horrifyingly difficult games that take weeks (for me at least) to work out a viable strategy. The scripting is also absurd. Having said that, the skirmish games can be a challenge when combatting three opponents in medium or hard mode, and no doubt it is interesting enough to play online. Online help is non-existant and despite being on the market more than six months, there's still no "walkthrough" available; either it's considered too hard or too boring!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a game! 4 Sep 2005
By A Customer
Wow! There are millions of RTS games out on the market but nothing that offers you the fun that Earth 2160 does. Earth offers a number of unique features - in some case te 1st for RTS games: Fight via first person! or send a scout to see what is ahead via picture in picture and still concentrate on the main screen. In fact see 1st person via picture in picture!
The game offers plenty of game play both in campaign and skirmish; learn to build, fight and join forces. Online offers the ability to play 8 online! You can create your own missions and play online.
Even if you are a casual RTS gamer, of gamer fullstop, this is a beast of a game. The graphics aren't bad either!!!!
Play it, it is worth the 30

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely DO NOT BUY this product 22 Sep 2005
By A Customer
Two good reasons not to buy this product:
1. It contains a spyware programme that checks the location of your computer. This by itself is a pretty good reason not to buy, but in addition if you live outside the UK the software prevents you from playing the game.
2. You have to validate the game online. Fine if you bought it through Amazon (you presumabely have a home connection), but not if you don't.
