Experience the rush of battle in ways no other real-time strategy game has ever offered. Stormrise is the first truly 3D, next-gen RTS that, via the 3rd person camera perspective, puts you directly in the action. No other RTS game combines this level of immersion and emotional intensity with the scale and depth of a strategy game. Designed for next generation consoles, Stormrise puts you on the frontlines of battle as the heroic leader of your troops, allowing you to lead from the front in the world's most immersive RTS.

Earth's protective atmosphere has been stripped away by a catastrophic event centuries ago. In a bleak and barren landscape, the planet's inhabitants have had to adapt radically in order to survive, resulting in the creation of two distinctly different races; the Echelon and the Sai. With both factions constantly battling for supremacy, the rebuilt civilisation is on the brink of another catastrophe...

Lead from the front. Control units and issue commands while viewing the battle from the 3rd-person POV of any unit on the battlefield. The 3rd-person camera offers unprecedented immersion in the game world and presents warfare in a more visceral, emotional, and epic manner than ever before.

The first fully 3D RTS. Gone are the flat levels of traditional strategy games. Engage in warfare on battlefields comprised of sprawling cities and towering skyscrapers that let you play in a truly 3D environment.

    Revolutionary console RTS features. Groundbreaking control method for quick and intuitive controls. The 'Tactical Playbook' gives players all the strategic choice they get from a traditional RTS, but with the simplicity and accessibility of a playbook.

      Advanced multiplayer features. Multiplayer modes feature "join anytime" functionality, previously only seen in first-person shooters and a breakthrough for console strategy titles.

       Awkward and annoying

      | | See all MaximumMaiden's reviews (43)

      I bought this expecting something more in the style of command and conquer. After sitting down to play it, I found that the controls were awkward, the camera was irritating and the graphics were ok. The new 'whip select' interface means you push the right stick in the direction of a unit to take control of them and see the map from their view point, but in the middle of a battle this is frustrating to use. Also the training missions at the beginning are annoyingly simple but restrictive. A disappointing game all round from the developer that made Viking: Battle for Asgard. I suggest you buy command and conquer or Battle for Middle-Earth instead.

       Very good, but could have been so much better!!!!!

      I had high hopes for this game when it came out. I was thinking it would be one of the best rts games on consaul ever, due to the fact it came from the creaters of the Total war seires. As soon as the game arived I put it in the disk drive and began to play. Within 15 minits I was comanding my army with very little difficulty and was having a blast. At about 40 minits I had a problem. My men were in cover fireing at the enamy, I kiled the enamy, and then seconds latter my men fell to the ground. At this point I was geting rather frightened. I thought my game was about to crash, but it did not. It terns out that there is a major bug on this game that combat lags and even if you or the enamy are not shoting, your men or there men can still be killed. It is a good game but they should have sorted this problem out before they put this game on the shelves. Also the "wip select" was not the best idea in the world. You know go to your units by useing the right stick, you point in there direction, release and your done. Not very handy way of aranging a huge army to attack. The camra angles are not very good.

      This game could have been a hit in my opinoin if they had got rid of these problems before release. I have given this 4 stars because I think this game is diffrent from other rts games. You can now go on top of buildings without having to put your men inside. You just click on the top of the bilding and bam, they are on there way. Very good statigy in it to.

      To sum up, would have been a five star, if some of the problems with the game were spoted before this game was released.

       I was disapointed

      Ok i have only played it for half an hour so dont wanna put anyone off too much wish this was more like C&C would have been a much better game whip view system is not good and after just 30 mins of play i had to turn it off. Think you need to have patients with this game think it could be good but its just not the kind of game i like to play. Its like endwars but a cheap version without voice commands? Giving it a 3 star as i think it will appeal to some gamers just not me.

       confusing and hard

      | | See all bondy512's reviews (3)

      Stormrise to me is very confusing and hard it takes a very long time and can get very boring after 5 minutes, this is my first strategy game I have played and in my eyes it miught be the last. If you like strategy games and you have a lot of patience, this is the game for you.

      I had read/seen bad reviews of this game,saying it was buggy and very flawed and complicated.This completely put me off from buying it,until i saw it on here for under a tenner,so i bought it.Being a RTS fan anyway,receiving it today i start to play it and followed through the training program and learnt what "whipping" was,while waiting to be disappointed i was totally surprised at how good the game is.Given time and thought the game works very well and the "quick whipping" system was for me superb,i which this had been thought of before saves trying to find all your forces on a map with a mouse.Its like having "quick keys" really but with one swift button/right stick i really thought this was a brilliant design idea.
      Seeing as the game was from "creative assembly" the lads have approached RTS from a new perspective and i think it works really well.The game is designed to be a tactical approach to RTS rather than rushing in to destory the enemy base!!,please give the game a chance and work with it rather than against it,C&C while brilliant in its own way,never moved the genre on or experimented with anything new,stormrise does this for me.While the RTS is there the game makes you think about attack and defence which in my book rates very high.
      The graphics are certainly not superb,but i can see where all the work went ie pathfinding,i found myself really not putting these under to much strain,for me they conjure up the atmosphere needed and i am happy with that.Sound is also fine and again it works,story is nuclear war/survivors/waring races,enviromental plague but all in all great fun.
      As i play more of this game,it for me gets better and i shall where it leads me,up to now though its "once more into the breach".Also when i loaded the game up on my 360 there was an update which seemed to help and i had heard of a major update beening released.
      So please at the price thats its beening offered at its a complete bargain!! for myself i have found a little gem,while not all is gold,i will take silvver as second.So to sum up its like "marmite" some will some wont.
