Multiplayer


Hurray! Hereís yet another game that caters to the zerg. If youíre not familiar with the term zerg, then youíre probably very new to the world of RTSs, and you might actually enjoy this game. However, if youíre actually looking for strategy in a Real Time Strategy game then you most definitely want to stay away from SEGAís Universe at War Ė Earth Assault.



Take the same choppy gameplay found in skirmish mode only instead of an AI opponent you will face another human being. And Ö the guy with the biggest zerg force will emerge victorious. The only innovating feature when it comes to multiplayer is the cross-platform-play feature where PC players can take on Xbox 360 players. Note: Iíve reviewed several RTSs where Iíve explained the term ZERG, but I feel like I owe it to all the new readers to explain the term again. I wonít take much of your time explaining it. ZERG refers to overwhelming numbers. It is the strategy of building more and more and charging. No strategy is really applied, just numbers. The guy that builds the fastest wins this war.
