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.

Commander needs AI

I keep getting really frustrated that my commander doesn NOTHING when getting shot at. The least he can do is return fire while I'm in Strategy Mode!!! Also, I'm getting pretty annoyed at having to switch back and forth between building troops and fighting. During the early game, there is no good way of destroying tanks except by using powers and I keep getting half my base destroyed before I can get my commander in range (AUTO-RUN is a MUST!!!)

Is there a place where I can only watch the cutscenes?

Gameplay is annoying enough to me to stop playing, even when I like everything on this game, lag, sudden weapon changes because of wheel, sticky character, is annoying, this game is not for flash, think bigger ! it is just too good

Lame, lame, lame!

Seriously, your weapon is horribly weak, there are only like 5 type of enemies.....boring lame enemies. This game is also a rip off Halo. The voice is annoying as hell ''our base is underattack'' i get that, is it necassery to say it million times? i likew the graphics and design, but seriously, the gameplay is boring. And your character walks slow as hell.

The Good, The Bad, and The Boring

This can be split down pretty easily into the "positives" (things that gained you points) and "negatives" (which lost you points):

- attempt to have a side-scrolling RTS
- ability to 'command' other troops on battlefield
- graphics (not great, but not terrible)
- variety of allies, enemies, and maps
- survival mode

- in-game music (you don't lose points for this, because it can be turned off)
- voice acting
- dialogue takes up half of the in-battle screen
- story too reminiscent of a few current Triple-A FPS games
- poor layout of controls
- allies are incredibly stupid

Honestly, the troops that you are allied with couldn't win a fight with a brick wall.

Overall it was an okay game. It wasn't anything special, but it's not awful.
