Release Date: 9/10/2001 (ironically the day before an actual war broke out)
Rating: E for Everyone
OK, I have decided NOT to do X-Men: Reign of Apocalypse (unless I find it locally) because it just costs way too much on eBay.
First off, I'm not really into strategy games or RPGs. This is a combination of the two, and, after learning a little about the game in the two training missions so far, I can't say that this is a bad game. In fact, it is going better than I had hoped, in the fact that I actually am understanding the game. It will probably be much harder in the coming missions, though. But still, even if I lose, I will understand why, although I won't understand why they had to make it so hard. Also, starting with this review, I will actually give out numbered ratings! So here they are:
Graphics/Sound: 5 - The graphics here don't really play a major factor here, as all you need to display are a grid and troops on it, I guess kind of like Risk?
Difficulty: 4 - For me, easier is better, so lower on this number is good. There is still a lot I haven't gotten to yet, so this is me being liberal with my ratings.
Game Play/Idea: 7 - Back in 2001 when this game was released, there were fewer army games back then. Although calling this an army game would be calling Army Men Advance an army game. Now you've got more realistic army games (which I don't play). The idea was good and IMO presented good.
