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 is Frikin Beast!!!!!

All in all a genius idea and i love the combat or strategy modes but i do have a few things to recommend:
1. like keldoclock said unlock units in story mode would be great
2. Dem's battery is what really keeps him alive when you think about it so it should have some sort of regeneration factor
3. Finally, it should be somehow possible to control unit groups in strategy mode waiting for the hybrids to hit them before they act is killing me!!!!
All in all one of the better shoot 'em ups i've ever seen and i can't wait for the next one

It's like playing Halo, Quake, and Skribblenauts on your computer, which is awesome.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

pretty cool

I personally enjoyed this game. The graphics, animation, and voicework was pretty impressive to say the least. However, this game does have it's issues.

First of all, I was not at all fond of the currency syestem. Getting energy was an absolute pain in the ass. I just don't understand why you just couldn't let players use credits instead of 2 diffrent types of currency. Also, I got really sick of using overpriced assists that didn't do much to help. The airstrike option(though not worthless) did little to help, yet took a crapload of battery to use. And why was my melee rifle so weak?

This game does have some problems, but far from painful. I actually enjoyed playing this despite it's problems.

Good, but needs a bit more work.

9/10 4/5
