3. not too bad! Mar 5, 2006, 14:45 ^mortis^
 
An interesting fusion of RTS and FPS. Too many people trying to run servers on home machines makes it laggy as all get-out on many servers, and not enough people bothering to read the instructions makes it frustrating to try and play.

I suspect the best games are occuring on the small, locked servers, of which there are several.

Aircraft building and the research portion don't seem to be in this release, however, unless i'm missing something.
