First Impressions: Universe At War: Earth Assault
I heard Petroglyph, successor to Westwood Studios who created the Command and Conquer series, made this. And I love love love the backstory. "Normal", stereotypical UFO aliens? Check. Robot aliens? Check. Ancient aliens? Check. Not saying it was aliens, but it was aliens. And you can play as the humans, too, in the beginning missions.
Only recently have I been able to find a copy for my enjoyment.
I first played as the Humans in the prologue missions. Cue the "Washington DC is being destroyed by aliens" trope. Then to find out every city is being destroyed by aliens, not just the important ones. Awe-some!
Want to try it out and support Faction Calculus in the process? Check out Universe At War: Earth Assault - PC in Amazon.
