Echoes is an action-strategy game. It's set in an extensive universe on a torn Earth almost three-hundred years in the future. It joins the famous real-time strategy genre with many elements from the third person shooter genre, in a side-scrolling environment.

Please note this game is loaded with action, and may load on your cpu. If you have any slow frame rates try to lower the graphic settings. Also note Echoes is a heavy story-teller, with scenes and dialogues. If you're in only for the action, there's always a skip button in the corner.

This game is an oxymoron!

The score is halfway between a 10 and a 0, because this has to be the most terribly designed great game I have ever seen.

The voice acting is great, the story is intriguing and original, the controls are absolutely horrible, and the game leaps between mind-numbingly boring and stupidly difficult.

For example, having the shift key for run? BAD idea. There's a certain keyboard combination of shift and another key that is dangerously close to your movement keys that is standard for most browsers to go back a page, hence instantly losing any progress when desperately trying to avoid getting smashed.

There's also the fact that the 'friendly' AI is about as intelligent as a lobotimized politician. Anti-infantry units will rush forward to get obliterated by tanks, while the anti-armor sits there and gets killed by the nade tossing infantry. Also, your supposed hero stands there and does nothing when he comes under attack. He should, at least, auto-shoot.

There's just too much to rave about, so I'm going to cut straight to the chase.

Great idea.
Keep it.
Horrible game.
Scrap it, and start over.

Do that, and this could become a serious hit. The potential is all there!

Utter awesomeness...

I'm gonna have a hard time waiting for the next act. The graphics are amazing, the storyline is catchy, the characters are unique, and the combination of Shooter and Defense is reliable... But those are only words.

Not "great", "wow", or "very good"

The game is solid, there is no problem when the technical aspect pf this game. But the problem lies in the game play. There is little strategy involved with combat. All you do is stand in one spot incapable of vertical movement. so there is no dodging, or avoiding bullets.

The story is a snooze, I know i dont want to sit around and sift through brick after brick of pointless chatter. Its not even like its interesting to read, half the screen is filled with box after box of dry chatter that just keeps coming and coming! God its so frustrating to have half the screen filled with this crap. Can I just get back to the vanilla flavored action?

The graphics where nothing to be admired, the super small figures running back and forth shooting smaller specs of light at each other is a strain on the eyes and makes the player really regret even clicking on this game. the was no life the the picture boxes on the dislodge bricks, they where all middle school art class caliber anime renderings.

Its not all negative though, i thought the strategy part was fun, but again there is no point to it really when you only have two directions to move. No troop flanking, or something of that sort, just brute force.

I am not going to spent any more time on this, and it frustrates me to see these other reviews saying that this game is so amazing and a master piece when it no where neat either! It is simply a game and that is its only redeeming quality, come on citizens of new groudns have some damn scruples.
