If you have the patience and guts to tackle Universe at War: Earth Assualt, however, you'll find plenty to reward you. For hardcore fans, the deep options and completely unique factions will be a revelation. For newbies, it will be a graduation.

Perhaps the reason I've been relatively unimpressed with the overall game is that so many recent RTSs (Company of Heroes, World in Conflict) have delivered both comparative visual loveliness and demonstrable conceptual cleverness at the same time. Universe at War does try to furnish us with some entertaining constructs, but ultimately delivers neither great splendour nor genuine surprise.

Aside from the unique races, Universe at War doesn't really introduce anything new to the genre. If anything, this is a very traditional real-time strategy game in the vein of Command & Conquer. Given that Petroglyph was formed by many veterans of the original C&C, that's not too surprising. What's perplexing is that the game seems to miss a lot of the innovations that have rolled into the genre since C&C.
