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 was promising but...

This game is really difficult and frustrating because of multiple problems with the AI and gameplay mechanics. It was obvious from a start that a project this ambitious developed by such a small group of people would lead to enormus problems in these areas. Don't get me wrong, you did do a good job, but the game is far too pretentious.
The story is plain bad. Its shallow, boring and predictable, even for a flash game standard, and, on top of that, the campaign is extremely short (I know this is supposed to only be part one, but anyway, the promise of better things yet to come does not solve anything). The reedeming qualities are, of course, the graphics and the voice acting, which was very well done. That said, I still consider this game pretty boring, repetitive, short and flawed in too many ways to be really worth playing.

The story is ok
The plot is stupid
Voice acting is ok
Script is not, too much dragging, not much of importance.
Controls are awkward
-sprinting is slow
- jumping forward can be triggered without tabbing the button twice.
-Sometimes, Dem runs the wrong way (not likely to be a lag)
-After being knock back (fighting with Diabolus) the weapon changed
-Controlling your soldiers should've been easier (hotkeys perhaps?)
Gun is so extremely useless (knife is more powerful & I beat the game with it)
Can't zoom out in combat mode
Diabolus is sometimes invincible
Your friends can't die, but you can. So I never feel anything for them. Hell, I let them do all the work.
A pause button, or a time stop during strategy mode for an easier management
When Dem is dead, stop pulling the camera back to him in strategic mode, it's already frustrating enough when you can't give any commands in strategy mode but moving.
Command options in strategy mode

These things better be fixed in Echoes 2

Not "great", "wow", or "very good"

The game is solid, there is no problem when the technical aspect pf this game. But the problem lies in the game play. There is little strategy involved with combat. All you do is stand in one spot incapable of vertical movement. so there is no dodging, or avoiding bullets.

The story is a snooze, I know i dont want to sit around and sift through brick after brick of pointless chatter. Its not even like its interesting to read, half the screen is filled with box after box of dry chatter that just keeps coming and coming! God its so frustrating to have half the screen filled with this crap. Can I just get back to the vanilla flavored action?

The graphics where nothing to be admired, the super small figures running back and forth shooting smaller specs of light at each other is a strain on the eyes and makes the player really regret even clicking on this game. the was no life the the picture boxes on the dislodge bricks, they where all middle school art class caliber anime renderings.

Its not all negative though, i thought the strategy part was fun, but again there is no point to it really when you only have two directions to move. No troop flanking, or something of that sort, just brute force.

I am not going to spent any more time on this, and it frustrates me to see these other reviews saying that this game is so amazing and a master piece when it no where neat either! It is simply a game and that is its only redeeming quality, come on citizens of new groudns have some damn scruples.

Bad ยก

- You can confusing controls
-Enemies are more than your army
-Your army are a bunch of chickens ( they do not fight by themselves)
-You always be under pressure without help of yours
-Everything you built is destroyed quickly
-You get frustrated 5 minutes later of start playing
-Maybe you leave the game without finish it
