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.

it looked great...

Great graphics, decent gameplay, the presentation was good and a very interesting plot...
What I first noticed is that the controls were a bit slow/sloppy but it is something I can overlook...The idea of switching from combat to strategy is nice but it can be a pain. If you're are not used to it, switching would be rather confusing in the heat of battle...BUT what I would really want complain about is story mode level 4. It seems like there are actually more hybrids than you and your units can really handle. Every building I made except for the HQ was destroyed. I cleared that level only by chance and luck. The side who has the larger number of unit wins

The voice acting's good. Especially Dem's, you can sense the anger (and he actually sounds a bit like Arthas from Warcraft 3 frozen throne)...but there are times that the voice acting just feels out of place. I mean the plot is building up tension and seriousness but some of the voice acting just kills it off. Including the background music in those cutscenes. It doesn't really fit in.

Honestly it had momentum...
It's a good've put much effort on this...but it would've been a greater game

I absolutely retched having to hear rina-chan's monotonous voice acting....
Great game but i swear she just ruins every female role with the Same Voice Every Time
There's some control issues that have been touched on before. so i wont bother.
Love the artwork!

It's good, but I think it gets boring after sometime. Dunno why it's under judgement though.

its good but it has flaws

the game overall is good and i quite cant explain it in one giant paragraph so here is a massive series of them

the controls are a can i put this......wild and unbalanced if i hit Shift+mouse wheel it reloads the page which is not good at all.....also the game has a nasty habit of moving when i need to press the buttons for another gun which not only knocked off my aiming but becomes a great liability

also the transitioning from strategy to combat broke up the game play quite a deal

on to the story mode,the story mode shifts too fast at times and doesnt give you enough time to understand everything or fully enjoy it,and it was surprisingly short hopefully the game makes up for this liability with its survival mode....

Nope completely wrong the survival mode is just a whole bunch of enemys whaling on you till you die and you dont even have a lot of time to even make troops this becomes very annoying at a dramatic pace and i dont like it at all also this being paired up with the close to poor controls makes the survival mode very annoying

before i put the final stab into this games heart i want to give it a a little bit of credit!it is a pioneering idea and sure its not perfect but it is still well rounded in different aspects but the game needs improvement try to increase the time in between rounds to 1:45 this will give time to actually gain resources and have time to get a short breather

this game was good but it quite wasn't The last stand good

in a nut shell i would play it and recommend it to the hardcore RTS with player control crowd but unfortunately they dont quite exist yet since strategy is played in mostly a god perspefctive so i will give this game its own genera

this is what i would like to call a MIBNQTAINABOIBTRBIOTRTS (more immerse but not quite there and it needs a bit of improvement before it really becomes its own thing real time strategy game)but over all i liked it sure i didnt love it and want to dry hump it like everyone else but hell a review is supposed to be my honest opinion and hate it if you want but this is exactly what i believe this game is in other words i give you a cookie

(if it gets that improvement ill call it a RTSWCC (real time strategy with character control)
