Uprising offers more strategy than a military sim, and more action strategy than a shoot'em up. Using your hi-tech assault tank, loaded with powerful weapons, you need to establish tidal bases, mine for power, build factories and direct legions of allied units against the enemy - all in an amazing 3D world. The path to the stars was heralded as a new beginning for peace, expansion and discovery. It did not happen. The oppressive Imperium power now controls the whole of known space, and the masses are restless. Now is the time to rise up and smash this regime.
I have bought and played this game back in 1997 and, next to some Duke Nukem 3D and Civilization II, this little gem was one of my most frequently played games. Uprising is a classic in a niche genre: mixed RTS with FPS in a futuristic setting with alien planets. This game guarantees plenty of fun gaming hours, here's why: - Sounds and graphics are outdated (1997, reaching the 20 years mark!), but they still have proper appeal as they were well designed, back in the days. - No steep learning curve, you quickly get the hang of how to play. - Challenging enough to make you put in some real effort. - Upgrade system: upgrade your own vehicle (wraith) with better weapons and upgrade your base buildings. Earn the required credits by completing missions. - Fight the enemy in your own wraith, swap view to a citadel (defense tower) in one of your bases and fight off an enemy attack, send in your (upgraded) soldiers, tanks and air units in a proper assault and take over another base. - manage your credits income by building the right structures per base, manage defense of each base by building citadels and defense towers - work your way through a vast number of planets and take them back, conquer. Beware of one thing though: several gamers have reported crashes and requested refunds. Make sure you're up to date on what to expect from running this title on your machine.
