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.

Friggin' Awesome!!

I loved the campaign. The story is awesome and I'm looking forward to follow up on the sequel :)
Like many others said it's kinda hard. I had to retry a couple of times before I managed to finally stop the attack and complete the mission. And the grenadiers has an awful long range and you don't got that much to put up to them.
Then I might not be that good at strategy games either but :)

Like I said I loved the whole concept with strategy and all third person action.
Keep up the great work!

Fun game, but discouraging at times

Its a little short, but that's no problem because it has a survival mode! Now, this mode is fun, but it gets not so fun really fast. Your troops do your best to help, but sometimes they're to stupid to. They try and shoot through hills, while the enemy is lobbing grenades over it killing them. They should at least move when their first shots hit dirt

To everyone having trouble with survival mode, get the ranger reinforcement power, and just spam supply stations to increase the pop cap. And just summon these until pop cap says 30. These guys can survive a few hits, so keep them healed and following you. Buy guys off the vending machine when you can, and just survive as long as you can. This is how I got the 10 wave achievement and 3rd on the high scores (for now).

This might work, but you shouldn't have to rely on just one unit in games like this, you should have to use a variety to win.

it takes a long time to load but worth it so i gave it a nine beacuse of that


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


it is really a great game in concept, art, story; very complex but once understood, very interesting.
nine stars because the dialogues are much too long and too slow... the writing doesn't sync with the voices.
