Universe at War Review Notes


As you may have noticed, my Universe at War: Earth Assault review is up and live. While I thought the game was a dreadful experience, at least my notes were lively enough. Feel free to check them out:

Universe at War Review Notes


- Terrible lip-synching
- Chainguns versus aliens?
- If you lose a hero in battle, you lose the mission. Sounds like that’ll happen a lot.
- Stuttered quite a bit in the opening
- First level, save the president
- Hero is a nasty unit, rarely gets hurt actually
- Cut-scenes look like total shit, pre-rendered backgrounds
- Colonel Moore is the main Hero’s name
- Soldiers are unresponsive for the most part
- Wait, he’s not the main hero. Is the protagonist the chick in the Transformers costume?
- Oh, it must be the dude with the face mask
- Nevermind
- So, I switched from saving the president to an AI race?
- Now, I’m confused. This chick is the only human on that planet’s homeworld
- She’s a clone
- Wow, those walkers are awesome
- Mission 4, 5, 6 point-and-click adventure!
- I’m getting tired of my guys getting stuck on buildings
- Could this game get any more jagged? I’ve got like 10 dudes on the screen
- I could totally pull off a Michael J. Fox joke
- These cut-scenes are total rubbish
- At least the Hiero-whatever is cool
- Oh man, I lost my hero
- The game doesn’t autosave? FUCK.
- Still sucks the second time through
- So, that campaign was unoriginal as hell. Very derivative
- Wait, this is the third race? Where the hell are the humans?
- Dude – I wanted a tank. I need a tank.
- Light/Offense, Dark/Defense
- Ugh.


- That only took twenty minutes to get a match
- Holy shit this is laggy
- Awesome, I fell out
- The tech tree is wicked hard to navigate
- Awesome, the guy quit on me
- Again
- Again
- Whoa, this is unplayable. Seriously.

About Brad Nicholsonone of us since 10:27 PM on 06.13.2008

I'm Brad Nicholson. I've been around, but Destructoid is where my dawgs at. You can see my work here, at MTV, at Giant Bomb or other great places around the Internet. I also run a podcast called The Electric Hydra and work out a lot in my spare time. Yeah. I keep busy.
