Nuclear Dawn is Real Time Strategy/First Person Shooter...yes a RTS/FPS I know right?!?!?! I never had so much fun dying before. But it lacks in certain elements this offline play isn't that much fun because the AI for the bots is horrible bots get stuck don't listen to commands that well. But the offline play is good to get a better feel of the Commander Position. So the breakdown of the game is one of the players gets designated commander. The commander is the most important position he is in charge of the the RTS side of the game building structures and telling the FPS players where to go. A great commander will make or break the game. The online play is FANTASIC. I would of loved to see this game in its heyday because not a lot of people are playing online but it is still so much fun. You can normally find one server with a few people online. The downside is they have been playing for awhile and its hard to level up your character. But keep at it and you will get there I almost have my EXO (heavy weapons/heavy armor) to level 10 to get an upgrade. There are four classes of soldiers, Assault, EXO, Support, and Stealth. Each class has its unique abilities for the game stealth you can cloak and back-stab for the kill or become a sniper. Assault just like the name says but you also get the thermal vision so you can see the stealth soldiers cloaked. The EXO is great for starting out a character in my opinion because of the heavy armor. Support is paramount to any good game with abilities to fix structures heal players, and resupply them. This game is well worth it $9.99 price tag and is sure to provide you with plenty of hours of fun.
