Fans of RTS (real time strategy) will be excited to know about this fun game, StarFront: Collision HD, in which they must journey around on planet Sinistral (sinister? The meta joke…) to find Xenodium crystals, which are used to power the creation of buildings and workers, along with soldiers.
Humansare part of the Consortium, which highly desires these rare crystals, but as always, with anything rare, humans are not the only one that wants them. An alien race (Myriad) love Xenodium as well and will stop humans whenever possible so that humans may not take away their crystals. It’s a battle of survival and wits out there and in the midst of that is the sentient robot race, the Wardens, who are trying to take advantage of this chaos and mess and claim victory in this war.
It’s quite the science fiction environment out there as you play as one of the three races and hone your strategic skills and planning. With 20 different missions on 5 different environments to complete, you’ll definitely never feel bored. Not only that, but you can play with your friends and do battle online to see who reigns supreme in this game.
As you progress into the game, it teaches you what you need to complete and how to complete your objectives. Your first step should be to play the tutorial, as that four staged tutorial is your friend in order to master the game. Some of the functions can be quite tricky, so it’s best if you take in this training seriously. You wouldn’t want to miss any small details now, would you? I didn’t think so.
RTS games are quite thrilling because you must learn hot to anticipate quite a bit into the future so that you may prevent any serious damage from occurring. That means upgrading and getting as many workers and gunners that you can possibly get your hands on. The nice graphics don’t hurt a bit as they provide an aesthetic feel to the game. However, there was a little action that irked me. During the tutorial, it teaches you how to retreat, but the funny thing is, sometimes, if you retreated, your guys would engage in combat with the enemy and that’s a terrible thing. You can’t even move them out of there. I failed that objective so many times because I couldn’t get my guys out of there as quickly as I could (though I seriously did and the game just didn’t respond to that).
Yes, the game does come with a hefty price tag of $6.99. Do I think it’s worth it? Probably not. I think a smaller price tag would do just fine, don’t need anything too fancy for a RTS game, right?
