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.

My reaction to the contraols: TLDR.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Great Concept.

I would give another 5 stars if the controls were complete. The use of ordering your units around was made perfect with easy control the only thing I hate is switching between your weapons. Switching between your weapons makes your who web page move, maybe it's just me but this was my experience and this is my review.

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!
