Average with good features.DukePaul | Nov. 2, 2012 | See all DukePaul's reviews »
Maybe this game can't compete with other big games but with this cheap price it's a really great deal.
The game is deep but its designed for people who can't dedicate a lot of time in a RTS match, if you are a casual player in these games you will love it because you don't need know all the commands and be super fast to win.
It's easy learn to play, with the matchmaking system you will find players with similar rank or level and you will know all the rules and strategies with nobody pushing you, even if you are losing a match, you can leave without a penalty
Also the graphics and the art style are great, for this price the game is worth it.
Another RTS...Zinzun | Aug. 31, 2012 | See all Zinzun's reviews »
I already have it,but...this game is really bugged.When I first started it (it runs automatically on window mode),then I must restart my PC to fix the resolution,because the screen goes for a half away,becoming too dark.
By the way,the game is similar to DOW2,you can customize your troops or use pregen ones,three maps to play on.If they fix some stuff,it will be a good game,but now is only sufficient.
Old school RTS with many improvementsDrHouse | Aug. 31, 2012 | See all DrHouse's reviews »
It's an RTS like in the goold old days, but with many modern day improvements.
They new matchmaking system allows you to join an existing game easily, or join/make a new game withing seconds. You can leave at any time too if you cannot continue playing or just got bored, so you don't have to "suffer" until it ends.
Also it has improved 3D graphics of very good quality and performance, that will make you feel that you're part of the game. The sound is good too.
But the main point of an RTS has always been the gameplay. The gameplay is gorgeous. It's addictive. The controls just feel right. You can do everything with just a few clicks or key presses. You won't feel that "oh, common, where's the button?" that you might experience in other RTS games.
So, if you love RTS games you will surely love Starvoid too. And it's VERY cheat for it's quality. So go buy it if you haven't already!
