Ashes of the Singularity Review

”Now is the time to consider if it is worth joining the Post Human Coalition, or perhaps look to a different future. Honestly, it is hard for me to decide. Ashes of the Singularity is definitely fun, but it does have some issues that can take too much time to really work around. For now I think my recommendation will be that if you really want it, go for it, but there is nothing wrong with waiting for a sale. In fact waiting is not a horrible idea to begin with as there are plans to add and improve several features throughout the course of the year. If you are not sure, go ahead and wait and see how it develops with a major patch or two, but if you just love RTS games, go ahead. The graphics look good, as they should for an RTS, and with the possible requirement of turning off asynchronous compute, it runs fairly well. The story, from what I have seen, is nothing too special, but provides a backstory to the two factions and a purpose to the campaign. The gameplay has some parts to it that could be better polished (the Army system specifically) but is still a good RTS, if you can adapt to work within the flaws. Of course, you might not be as vexed by them as I am either. Not a bad experience, and with some time it can definitely come to stand as a good example of the genre. For now though, it stands as a good example of some new technologies, and I am looking forward to what comes from it.”
