My favourite strategy game, especially the expansion that made this jewel of a game even better.
The story is well written and the voice acting is up to the standard. The campaign is full of well executed missions and the cutscenes are well done too. It is the kind of commitment I see in every detail that most games nowadays are lacking.
I can hardly comment on the multiplayer in steam version. I own the original release and activated the game in steam. The olden game had this gas powered games hosted multiplayer lobby system that worked excellently. As I've gathered the service has been ran down. Leaving the steam version with only direct ip multiplayer. Which as consept sounds oh so very crippled when compared to the excellency that was the old multiplayer.
Only thing I could think to complain of ( in steam version ) is the lack of manual. Proper one existed for the non steam version of the game, however it has not been added to the steam version of the game. Not so terrible I suppose. I found it problematic because the game has well mapped hotkey controls. It is much easier to control your air units if you know that ctrl+a selects all air units. The key mapping was only present in the game manual. So the steam owners might find it bit more difficult to organize their army than people who have the manual.
