Centuries after Humanity first left Earth, all forms of life in the Milky Way have evolved toward an inward tranquility. But there has been a mutation. A mysterious organism barrels toward the surface of a lone, resource-rich planet known as Ecosystem 9, on a mission to consume all it encounters. Grey Goo is a real-time strategy (RTS) game that combines classic strategy mechanics and a balanced combat system with an emphasis on large-scale decision-making. It puts you at the center of a tactical struggle for survival—and ultimately, control of Ecosystem 9. Command one of three unique factions: the Humans, masters of defensive architecture; the Beta, a proud, versatile alien race; or the Goo, an enigmatic, highly mobile life form. Fight from behind massive walls, attack from strategic outposts, or swallow your enemies whole. Just remember, the choices you make on the battlefield will mean the difference between glorious victory and agonizing defeat.
Abandoned like the rest of Petroglyph games
The story? Decent. The CGI scenes? Excellent. The missions themselves? Challenging. The rest of the game? Underwhelming. Low amount of content for a game claiming to be AAA. Universe at War and Empire at War has way more content than GG. Even the graphics settings are underwhelming, like there is no settings for AA, shadows, etc. There very few maps and the game can only go up to 4 players. The lack of map scrolling by holding down one of the mouse buttons is disappointing.
There is a population cap which is a no for me. The upgrades are quite bland, doesn't really change the units. The railgun upgrade for the mammoth tanks in Tiberium Wars, now that's an upgrade. As for the units, they're just units. They don't have the same amount of character as the units in C&C. Crazy Ivan anyone?
The soundtrack is pretty nice but the sound quality is kind of crap. The sound quality for the songs I have is way better than the games soundtrack. Don't buy the DLC soundtrack because it only has 10 out of the 31 tracks.
Do not be fooled by those who said this game is like C&C, it's not. If you're going to get this game, wait until the price drops. >>>I'll only recommend this game if you're in it for the story and the soundtrack. But I will be looking forward to the continuation of the story.<<<
Best RTS game? Not even close. Starcraft, Supreme Commander (not including the second one), and Command & Conquer (from Tiberian Dawn to Red Alert 3 Uprising) will remain at the top. Honorable mentions: Warhammer, Universe at War, Empire at War, and Sins of a Solar Empire.
Westwood =/= Petroglyph
Westwood is not back nor will they ever. When will you silly Westwood fanboys realize that? Such a shame that Petroglyph abandoned End of Nations, it had potential before the dreadful change. Stop getting honey dicked by things like this from Petroglyph. I.imgur.com
TLDR: Overpriced and underwhelming for a AAA game.
POOR POST LAUNCH SUPPORT
Bloody Amazing Game Best Buy i will make in 2016 True RTS cant wait to see what they do next its going to be great
