If you stick to multiplayer Maelstrom has a lot to offer but an abundance of basic flaws mean it's no challenge for the big boys of the genre. That said, if you are looking for something a little different Maelstrom might be worth a look. Just know that you won't be getting greatness.

You can also play a skirmish against the computer, but you'll need to turn the AI up a notch because the normal setting doesn't offer any challenge. Even if you somehow manage to find Maelstrom's bright spots, there are too many ridiculous design elements to make it worth a purchase--unless you've always wanted to play a sci-fi RTS game with a "duck duck goose" minigame, of course.

Maelstrom is a title that will please RTS fans looking for another game to challenge them for hours. The good story, nice graphics and solid gameplay will keep you going for some time. However the questionable AI and “same old, same old” feel might keep some gamers away. If you’re looking for a solid and enjoyable RTS game, Maelstrom should score on all accounts. If you’re looking for an innovative and ground breaking PC game then you will probably be disappointed.
