Stormrise is not that game. Don't get me wrong, it's not that it's a bad title - the developers just seem to have taken too big of a step forward at once. Though the innovation is welcome, it comes seemingly at the expense of the company's trademarked...

Real Time Strategy games are all about the strength and size of your armies - the bigger, healthier armies will always prevail over the weaker, less developed armies...unless you've got the right cheats. Cheathappens' trainer adds a new element to the...

Stormrise PS3 Review


Whenever an RTS game comes to consoles, the main talking point is always the control method. Will it find an acceptable workaround for the lack of keyboard and mouse control? Or are your fingers going to be tied in knots, due to the sheer demand of it...

Stormrise is almost as clever as it is stupid. When things are functioning as they should, the game is a great strategic offering. But too often the abundance of bugs in combination with its unexciting visuals, conspires to make a game that is not only...

Stormrise (PC, Xbox 360, PS3) review


When a huge strategy giant, such as The Creative Assembly, announce a new real time strategy game, a lot of fans are going to be interested. This is especially true when they move away from a setting they are well known for - in The Creative Assembly's...

A simple design idea for controllers created a massive chain reaction in how the game is played, and frankly, it's for the worst. Creative Assembly should have transformed the game controls for the PC version. Because of all these problems, Stormrise...

A brave attempt to tackle the strategy genre in a new way, but ultimately Stormrise is left wanting in every area. If you're looking for a brand new RTS, check out the more conventional Red Alert 3 instead.

Australia's Creative Assembly have tried to rewrite the real-time strategy genre in their latest science fiction epic entitled Stormrise which is set in the distant future where Earth's atmosphere has been destroyed by a cataclysmic event. The story...

Marketed as 'the first truly 3D next-gen RTS that, via the 3rd person camera perspective, puts you directly in the action', Stormrise arrives with big ambitions, but is tripped up by rushed programming and patchy A.I.

Decent 3D graphics ; When the A.I works it works well ; Good character animations ; Some cool weapons and characters ; Good variety of modes ; Play with up to 8 people online ; Can zoom right into the action

Frame-dropping ; Numerous freezes and enemy A.I glitches ; Orders take precious seconds to relay ; If your robot dies you have to start again ; Maps are cordoned off in certain places

If only the A.I had been up to scratch and all the frame-drops and glitches smoothed out (a second patch was cancelled due to budgetary concerns), Stormrise could have been a benchmark for RTS games. It still is - but for all the wrong reasons....

The thinking man's sci-fi strategy game


Could have had a bit of an easier to grasp learning curve, in order to relate to the majority of the "casual" mainstream strategy gamers. Put aside the reviews from mainstream sources and consider that their reviews take less time to create than actual...

Good Storyline ; Great Graphics for an RTS ; Not the best, but above mediocre game-play

None-Conventional use of controls, however the tutorial covers that ; Steep learning curve

Stormrise- PS3


Just what the 360 needs, another crap RTS. Seriously, stick to the PC and wait until a M&K comes out for it for damn tootings sake! The whip control select method is fiddly and should not have got past the ideas stage, it is just terrible. The main...

Stormrise- PS3


I was really looking forward to Stormrise, as it did look v cool, but it didn't deliver. Stormrise is an RTS but you take a hands on approach, which isn't new to this genre as it seemed similar to a game called Future Tactics I played on the Gamecube....


Product Specifications

In an urgent realization that drastic measures were necessary to safeguard the Earth's future from human existence, the world's best scientists were commissioned to develop a permanent solution to address mankind's long running destruction of the environment. Taking over 22 years to design and produce, the result was a force-field developed to supplement the deteriorating atmosphere, putting an end to global warming once-and-for-all, and safe-guarding mankind's legacy for the foreseeable future. The force-field was hailed as a success the world over - a symbol of hope and a testament to man's technological prowess. There was nothing man could not triumph over. But some things are simply uncontrollable, and in the end nature always prevails. Even with the best intentions at heart, humans had unknowingly engineered their own demise. There are no clear records of how it all went wrong. Known only as "The Event", the effects of the destructive storms were the same everywhere - nothing was spared, buildings, road surfaces and fields were stripped away and entire cities were flattened in mere days. Humans had never faced destruction on this level and on such a global scale. With absolutely no escape from an all-consuming monster storm creeping out from the equatorial regions, authorities began to build huge underground structures filled with cryogenic hibernation chambers, planning to sleep out the storm. What began as a relatively structured process, soon deteriorated into chaos as the populace began to realize that there wouldn't be enough room to house all remaining survivors. Panic ensued, difficult decisions were made, and only a privileged few were ultimately assured safety. The doors to the massive underground complexes were sealed shut. Its thousands of occupants forced into a dreamless sleep that would last for centuries. Many of those outside starved. Some descended into madness. Others tore each other apart with the rage of desperation and anger... Only a few surface dwellers managed to endure. Slowly evolving beyond their original forms and developing extra sensory abilities as centuries passed. With only limited means available, they attempted to rebuild a world left battered and bare by "The Event". These surface dwellers evolved into an almost entirely race, known as The Sai, fending for themselves and utilizing remnants of the technology left by their sleeping ancestral cousins. They built makeshift communities over and around the remains of civilization and only spoke about the 'old' population with contempt in whispers around campfires. Growing ever stronger in a harsh destructive environment once thought to be conquered by technology, the Sai can not imagine that another storm is on the rise. Below the surface, in cryogenic chambers designed to house their inhabitants for a finite length of time, one dark morning they sprang to life and the long-forgotten inhabitants awoke to reclaim their planet. The Echelon emerge... and Stormrise has begun.
