Pros:great graphics,runs good an any machine above 233mhz 32 mb,great multiplayer capabilities

Cons:there isnt any mid game saves for single player,not many peaple using it online yet,

Here i am i was walking down the isle of Babbages looking for a new game. This isnt easy because im fairly choosy on what im about to spend my hard earned money on.
I walked into Babbages and i was looking around and i looked at a few other new games that caught my attention with there fancy boxes. Then another game caught my attention a name scrolled across the box.Ground Control a futuristic strategy game. i looked at the cover and instantly saw i wanted it.
When i got into the game it played beautifully on my 500mhz 96 mb comp.
It was also made by sierra which i think is a great strategy game company.
The single player missions are fairly difficult and are long on going. For a heavy gamer like me it was perfect. The units are detailed all the way down to the cockpit of a scout vehicle and the explosions are as real to make you jump out of youre seat. There are muzzle flashes which while up close show every sparkle of light and from up far you can watch as it impacts on an enemy and make a beautiful red and bright light scatters around the impact area. The sky has the most detail i have ever seen in any game. The scenes in this game are captivating.
There are 4 different categories of units. For 1 race "the heavily armored fighters of the game"Crayven there are 14 unique units with very many special weapons. 4 of these units are aerodynes/airplanes. Now the psychotic,religious peaple are fighting for the hand of god which they recieve later game. they have a lower armor but a better speed and they dont use tanks they use hoverdynes. which hover above the ground. they have 14 units also but only 3 aerodynes. All of there units are faster and more maneuverable than crayven. Which means that ever part of this game is evened out. The multiplayer is strong and doesnt crash much and the maps are gigantic. Every day there are new maps coming out which beats others.
All in all this game is great in my eyes and will hold me at my screen for many days. And has a great replay value in multiplayer which will hold me over for at liest a month.
