Instead of attacking or turning while moving they stop.  :-P

I think it was buried under a couple of other games that were somewhat similar (but nowhere near as good!) that came out a few months sooner.
Gamespot Game Review
"...features enough dazzling visuals for several games of its type, but it's hampered by its been-there-done-that gameplay and poor unit intelligence." Ouch.

So basically bad timing, and bad advertising?
Have you checked out any of my mods?
-If not, it's probably because I haven't uploaded any. :wink:

Dunno if it worked fine in 1999 but maybe a better Multiplayer. Something like Battle.net would have been fine.

Well yeah... and maybe a little lazy in finishing the game properly... there are some things in the game that will not put a smile on your face... take the animation of the machines... if they took a little more time on proper animating the bots it would be graphicly a better game and better graphics tend to get more audience... even without acclaim promoting there games

I understand I should "introduce" myself first, I'll do that next I promise   :clint:

All of you missed the big point about what killed this great game.  It would only run on the contemporary PCs if they had 3DFX chipsets in their graphic hardware (which I mercifully happened to have). 

Best PC game ever made.  Sucky AI and all.  :-D
