This was unsatisfying and poorly balanced, nearly six months after it’s release date.  Such a shame, I really enjoyed all the other Annihilation games, they were a key component of my college gaming memories.   My main issues:

  • Poor battle management system.  having to jump from planet to planet to planet with just the mouse is very difficult and mentally taxing
  • Poorly balanced item types, there was no one item that could fight everything, you had to have multiple hotkeys of different types of fighters, bleh.
  • Poorly thought out battle system: you dont’ get the full tech tree at any point in the game, just what you find in the main menu area.  Yes, really.
