Maelstrom takes you to the devastated future Earth of 2050. An alien invasion has triggered ecological disaster. In this new, apocalyptic world, water has become the most valuable of resources and divided the remaining humans into two factions. Now, they must wage war against the invaders and each other in a desperate struggle for supremacy and survival. It's all-out destructive war as you battle for control of the entire planet against fearless aliens, an army of high-tech super soldiers and a rag tag crew of human survivors.

The concept behind it is pretty interesting but the gameplay doesn't do it justice.

what a shame.

I bought this game when it was probably 50 dollars. I can say that I regret buying it. It isn't as "awesome" as it seems and I got bored of it probably 1-2 days after playing it. It's kind of a sad thing that there are ALSO no mods for this game, since it could use a lot of other assists.

I was very sad to see this when I bought it, as it seemed like a very solid concept. I can even narrow down the things that killed it: REALLY bad pathing engine, slow resource harvesting with high resource cost for everything, and dumb-as-toast AI. other than that, it played very well, with a number of interesting ideas. I love the destructible battlefield, walling off your base to create artificial choke-points is wicked awesome. the ability to manually control hero units is both well-implemented and fun, the main problem is the vehicles lack the good turning expected by veteran FPS players, leading to collision issues. all-in-all, this is an interesting, if occasionally frustrating, game, and well worth the $4.99 I paid for it on steam.

killbilly1, I have to say the terraforming effects are pretty interesting... but thats as far as it goes.
If you want a decent RTS I would say get dawn of war or medieval 2 total war, this just ain't worth it.
:(

When I play this, it feels like an incomplete rts. Most rts have large battles with many troops. Here, it takes me AGES to make any kind of a force. the 3rd person view just slows down the action to much. The $10 I spent on it, was not worth it.

i would have to agree with you with the incomplete part and with Skatoony about lack of modding tools. i bought this when it came out thinking it was going to be like starcraft with ai but i was wrong the ai was really stupid and still did the build as much as you can and charge endlessly at the enemy base (except the advanced humans which undeployed the mobile buildings moved them 2 feet over before redeploying them until a small amount of enemies wipe them out) as far as patches I didn't give it a year to get finished...

I'm going to reinstall it again. See if changing a few settings and updating the **** out of it makes it any better.
From the videos though, I do like the way you can terraform. I want a map where all you do is terraform, just for the fun of it.

It's acutally not that bad,
If you read closely, the demo is "Pre-Alpha" .

This game is kind of horrible, if the demo is anything to go by... Load times, anyone?
