The innovative and unfriendly DeLorean of real time strategy games

, | Game reviews

Note that it’s not Archon. Like that game up there, which is a whole other way to travel through time. It’s Achron. Like Ohio. This time travel RTS is challenging in terms of saying the name without thinking of the classic battle chess game or the Ohio city. In terms of graphics, gameplay, and its drawn-out tedious campaign. In terms of wrapping your head around its cool ideas.

…unfortunately, cool ideas don’t sell games until they’re implemented into cool games.

By the way, I did some math. The Gamepro editor who stuck the editor’s note at the top of the review, which kind of spoils the joke by explaining it, thinks Blizzard is going to publish one Starcraft sequel every two years for the next decade. That’s a good one!
