is brought to you by the same people who created Perimeter
. And, with a pedigree like that it was disappointing to play this title. The game begins slowly in standard tutorialized first missions. Throughout the game, you will play the roles of three different factions: The Remnants, the Ascension and the Hai-Genti. Each faction will have its own set of up to three resources you have to secure. Each faction will also have its heroes. Each hero has a special ability unique to them. Use them wisely to succeed. Who am I kidding - they really don't make much difference in the game. Besides, if they die, your mission is over.
The Remnants are the last of the straggling survivors of humanity, fighting the Ascension for control. The elitist corporation once known as Ascension Incorporated, seeks to gain control in the aftermath known as the Maelstrom. Soon the earth is discovered by an alien race, the Hai-Genti, who seek their own survival out of the chaos, after leaving their dying home world. Both the Ascension and the Hai-Genti have the ability to terraform their landscape, making for some interesting play.
Online play actually features some good maps and interesting play with three factions that play very distinctively different.
