Stormrise (PC)

Time for a Game post! :D
Today its Stormrise.

Stormrise is a real time strategy (RTS) game published by Sega, like many RTS games it is based in a post-apocalyptic world where two rival factions war to control what is left,

the Echelon, a technologically advanced race that endured the planet's fallout by way of self-induced hibernation,
the Sai, a tribal society that adapted to the new environment and evolved. Units can be deployed in the air, on rooftops, at ground level, or below the planet's surface.

 Here is an example of one of the Echelon units, many of their units are robotic or men in suites of armor,

The character you play as is Commander Aiden Geary who takes command of the units while on the field of battle, using the mouse to control the units you can be very tactical when assaulting enemy bases.

The game was released in March 2009 but never seemed to get much of a response, i've played this game for awhile and I do enjoy it, its levels can be difficult but the story at least so far is very good.

However I would say that this game is for fans of RTS games more than average gamers as they are more likely to become bored or get stuck on the game.

Overall I give this game 3/5 an enjoyable play but some time is needed to be dedicated to the game to see its full potential.

I bet no one has heard of this game before right? I hadn't I just got it with some new parts I got for my PC :)




  1. Nice. I'll have to try the game sometime.

  2. not really a fan, it annoyed me. i find rts's need to have near perfect gameplay to be enjoyable.

  3. It's true that I never heard of it... might look for some LP videos later

  4. Meh, preferring global agenda at the moment :P

  5. Interesting, I'm not sure I've heard of this before.

  6. this is the first time I've heard about Stormrise

  7. this seems like an interesting game

  8. Hmm interesting. If only I had the money to be buying new games at this point. I'm probably gonna get Starcraft 2 first though.
