FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

What do these ratings mean?

I am RA!!! Behold my half-ass game review about Age of Methology (as I call it).

Thats basically how I felt as I played this game. Meth attack!

Its an solid RTS with creatures and humans from diffrent civlizations, and it gives you god powers. Though I would have gone for 'total destruction', and 'the fall of man' god powers.

But thats just me. What I didn't enjoy about this game was the fact of just how the encylopedia had pointless storys and facts about each unit in the game. Everthing from the book of the dead, to the annals of Horus.

Crappy.

I spent more time reading about my Meth unit instead of playin the game.

And thats what it boils down to, gameplay. The godpowers gave the game an almost fleeting sense for us RTS fans. We could spend hours buiding a base that would rival Olympus itself, but one earthquake and metor storm, and its all blown to hell...

Bah, I say!

Muiltplayer is fun in this game. Me and my pals spent many a night killing eachother with god powers and texting insults about our civlization far into the night.

Like I said before, a solid RTS and excellent music, with decent controls and god powers that make anyone feel like they are the Alpha and Omega.
