Perimeter 2: New Earth
The First Perimeter wasn't particularly well received, but at least had a couple of ideas that distinguished it from other RTSs. However, its sequel manages to remove all those ideas and make the whole game worse, which isn't what sequels are meant to do.
KDV Games are obviously proud of this game's storyline, judging by the long cutscenes, which is sad because it's I complete boring bollocks. The only aspect I found interesting was the Nazi-like propaganda the two sides level at each other. Unfortunately that's the only good thing I can say about Perimeter2, and it took me all night to think of it.
In an early mission, I was told to build some power plants at four points. IThe playing area was one big square, with the enemy bases spread around a bigger square. Not only was the map like a poorly-designed skirmish arena, but immediately upon starting I was attacked from all sides and annihilated. I managed to build one building and a couple of turrets, and at most I killed one enemy. After many attempts I restarted the map on Easy to continue. This was only the third mission!
The maps are boring, units weedy, Al absent, troops non-responsive, graphics dire, sound effects pathetic, music repetitive, resource gathering system incomprehensible, and the storyline, as mentioned, is woeful. Not only all that, but it has the gall to cost $20. Lieutenant, get my gun.
