Missing the point (and a rocking game!),
This review is from: Perimeter (PC) (Video Game)
Okay so what ALL of the above have failed to mention is what makes this game possibly one of the finest RTS games I've played... Your units can morph into other units... This completely unique feature makes this game unlike any RTS you have ever played or are ever likely to play
So... it goes like this... you've got enemy bases to kill... they're on an island... only way to get to them is with a helicopter... but the helicopter doesn't have the firepower to take out the base... no worries... fly the 'copters in and then morph them into rocket launcher... wipeout the base, morph your rocket launchers back into 'copters and fly home to celebrate! Too much terraforming going on? not enough building happening? not a problem... morph the terraformers into constructors... Being able to change the units means that each unit is as important as each other and veteran RTS players may well find themselves having to re-think a few of their tried and tested strategies to get through this one...
In conclusion a quality game (nice graphics; good soundscape) that's unlike pretty much any other game out there...
