Universe at War: Earth Assault is the next sci-fi real-time strategy game from Petroglyph, the award-winning studio comprised of team members that developed the original. Command & Conquer and C&C: Red alert. The latest strategy game from these RTS pioneers features unprecedented levels of customization and an epic storyline set on near-future Earth. Powerful forces from across the universe have brought war to our planet. In Universe at War, you take command of several unique factions with awesome powers and spectacular units. Control massive alien war machines that are fully customizable.

With “Tactical Dynamics,” Universe at War’s on-the-fly customization system, you can dynamically swap out weaponry, rework your tech tree, and retrain units in the middle of combat to thwart your foe and seize the advantage. Universe at War features large-scale environmental destruction in a persistent world – level a city and when you come back, the area will still be a smoking ruin. Here, though, the environments you fight for are close to home, as you wage war across familiar Earth cities and landmarks.

Universe at War also introduces numerous innovative new multiplayer features inspired by today’s top MMO’s and competitive online games, giving all players achievements, rewards, and medals in a balanced environment with intelligent matchmaking. You will be able to play againzt Xbox 360 players as well as other PC players!

Is there any way to modify the zoom so I can zoom out further? At the moment it is WAY too close for comfort.

Don't forget the new patch brought about plenty of new texture updates. Plus the 22% extra zoom helps with depixalating the textures.

Graphics, graphics, graphics. There is more to a game than just graphics. Universe at War isn't about super good graphics like World in Conflict. Look at Starcraft II, it has cartoonish look, people want it for a key feature, Game play. Game play is far more important than graphics.

You're right you don't play the humans beyond the tutorial campaign. Universe at War is about the backstory between 3 alien factions and how they all end up on Earth. Hierarchy want to strip mine the planet and destroy out race. Novus are holy crusaders out to destroy the Hierarchy. The Masari are literally what gods of men in ancient times were. Humans do play a role in story mode.
