There are supposedly a bunch (or at least several) additional game modes beyond Survival planned for the future.

The only thing that holds hope for me is that I think this is being developed by somebody else, so they can succeed where the other one failed so poorly. I think there was a good city builder somewhere underneath the subscription fees and light mechanics.

I agree that Elemental is one of the best game ideas out there, but it's not fully realized yet. Maybe in six months.

Do people really own 30" monitors? I have a 17" and it works just fine, thank you very much.

Breaking the street date doesn't change what was in the box: a buggy, unfinished game.

$38 is a bit much for the game (like I said in the review, $25 would be better), but hopefully they'll keep adding some maps and more features for online play. because there is a nice engine. This game is as little hardcore as Matrix will get.

Maybe outofeight does a review?

August 30th. I get the review code the same day all the beta testers do, which is sometimes this weekend.

Speaking of Victoria 2 - i'll never understand why they make these historical games again and again, have they no creativity to make a unique new fresh fantasy world?

They have their audience that demands it, I suppose. They tried to branch out by publishing Lead and Gold and Ship Simulator and some turn-based fantasy games, but the ones they develop are always historical. And that's all I got to say about that...I'll hijack a thread about Patrician IV for Victoria II but not a thread about Elemental

RPG character customization and advancement, city management, quests, unit design, tactical battles, magic, research, diplomacy, multiplayer, and lots of editors. I'm looking very much forward to it (been in the beta).

We'll see what the final product is like; press gotta wait until the day 0 patch is ready late next week at the earliest, which really messed with my schedule, as I was expecting to play it as soon as it went gold (which is usually the case).

Ooo...death!

"Those days are behind us"

Except for Elemental War of Magic, which comes chock full of editing programs and allows for trading of new content both in-game and out of the game. Oh yes, but that game doesn't come out until August 24th so it doesn't count.

And a host of other PC games too numerous to count. Oh yes, but they don't count because they are PC games.

Ooo...death!

Post is fail.

News Comments > Ships Ahoy - Battlefield Academy
1. Re: Ships Ahoy - Battlefield Academy Aug 5, 2010, 22:24 JaguarUSF
 
Played some today. Here's what (wot) I think so far:
- Around 30 heavily scripted scenarios (obviously haven't tried them all). Set up seems to be the same each time. More difficult when attacking.
- I like the online server PBEM matching a lot. Only seven maps with no objectives and no time limit (?) is disappointing...a lot of stalemates me thinks. Why attack when you can defend in relative safety? Guess that's why there is arty and suppression.
- Nice editor
- Some cool mechanics like assaulting, suppression, ambushes, morale, all easy to understand and clearly shown in the game.
- Cover is really well done, probably the best part of the game. Infantry can hide from tanks, only can be spotted by other infantry units, so they actually have a use for once.
- AI does some good and bad things, better as a defender.
- Gotta be really careful on the attack, suppressing places that likely are hiding enemy units. Surprise ambushes can take out a tank/inf squad in one turn.

I like it. Don't love it, but like it. Please start the Victoria II-style rage.....now.

It's on my list of things to vote on when we need things to vote on, which won't be for another month at the earliest. Before then, I have reviews of Blacklight Tango Down, Victoria II, Commander: Conquest of the Americas, Razor2: Hidden Skies, Elemental: War of Magic, Battlefield Academy, Star Ruler, Worms Reloaded, and Ship Simulator Extremes to do.
