Dominion Storm over Gift 3
7th Level, remember
This was origanally on the 7th
level game creation agenda but they dont exist anymore so one of their ex-employees (Todd
Porter) brought it along with him to Ion Storm and it became their first game, instead of
the much delayed Daikaitana. Storyline wise there is nothing new here really. 4 races are
fighting on a planet called Gift 3 over some resources (Dark Reign or C&C anyone).
Apart from the fact that it is 4 sides instead of 2 is the only difference really. Ion
Storm that this game sports constant 30 frame per second action no matter what res your in
and they also boast the cure to every RTS fans disease, the cure to dumb A.I. Lets
see if they are telling the truth.
1280*1024 = invisible units:
O.k, the graphic boast was 30 frames per
second in any of the 4 resloutions. Problem is that it doesnt really look nice in
any of them. Now although the units are well animated, and nicely drawn, the rest of the
graphics a very messy. The terrain, which is the most abundent item is the worst feature,
its badly drawn and bland which doesnt exactly show off the talent of the much
hyped artists at Ion Storm. And the promise of 30 frame per second gameplay no matter the
res is a lie. As always the companies say one thing and deliver another but ill get
back to this later. Oh and the top two resolutions are mostly pointless as your troops
to the next page...
