Review of Glest MEGAGLEST

Add header image

Choose file... or enter url:
Much better than glest. Has metaserver/matchmaker and multi mod (tech tree) support. AI is better stepped. Weaker then Spring (5 ppl in multiplayer vs 50) in every way except maybe installation and art direction. Especially the econ management is pointless and tedious.

Glest Advanced Engine
A bit better than glest, ads bunch of in game features, but MEGA glest still better. Buggier.

Glest review:
Free small, dl, runs right away, looks nice. Warcraft 2: the os remake. The amount of effort required to set up the economy in game is prohibitive. Interface lags behind it's OS contemporaries like Warzone or SpringRTS. AI is either very weak or overpowered. 2 races with 10 units each; so in imagination and complexity is not nearly up to standards. But then there's MEGAGLEST and glest.org/glest_board/index.php?topic=3182.0 !! or the wiki of mods and mod.db.

Saying "Especially the econ management is pointless and tedious." makes me think you don't know what micro management is and how it can make a game fun. This is actually quite well done in this game.

But I agree with the rest: MegaGlest is better than GAE (which also doesn't seem to be actively developed anymore), since supporting multi platform games online is a huge feature, and it is now way better than Glest (which it is based on).

I hated it in AoE & clones and did not really like it in -Craft too. I have to focus on the challenge of econ management that I have repeated the exact same way every game before. This could go on for 10 minutes of a 30 minute game. The controls are never really up to it either.
