As I have mentioned before I love RTS games. Act of Aggression is a new entry into the RTS game, it was released on Sept 2nd 2015.
When I think of RTS games I immediately go to thinking of Age of Empires or Age of Mythology those are by far my two favorite series in the RTS realm. So going by that you can probably figure that I like older style games with swords, shields, and horses. Obviously this game doesn’t have these, in Act of Aggression you will be using infantry, tanks, vehicles and the like. AoA has three playable factions all with their own units and playstyles.
US Army, Cartel, and Chimera are the three playable factions. For most people the US Army will fell like the more “traditional” and probably the easiest to play for people starting out.
All in all AoA is a fun game to play especially if you enjoy playing RTS games. If you ever played C&C Generals you will feel right at home. The graphics are honestly out of this world, the detail of the units and the game world are outstanding. After zooming all the way in the details are just amazing.
There is a single player campaign that does teach you a little bit about the game, but I feel the game is lacking a tutorial that could be very helpful for newer players. Right now the online community is somewhat small, every time I have logged in there has been between 700-900 people playing. Hopefully with time that number will grow and came become a very competitive game online in ladders.
