   It has been a while since I have played the game (about 6 years) and at the time I didn't really understand how to play RTSs.  I built units that I thought were cool looking.  And the ones that could fly because I was to lazy to navigate a group of machines over rough terrain.  Anyway I never really liked the Gorilla because it was big and slow and lumpy looking.  I liked the nimble and agresive looking Reapers and Commanders and the powerful, heavily armed Knights and Warlords.
   Was the Goliath the other peak end unit?  The one that shot the two red missiles that took about a day to reload?  I remember it not being very nice either.

Yeha. The Goliath is cool, in both weapon range and voice. It always seems to have a rather bad attitude towards work :D
But i don't like the gorilla, too. He's quite dumb and too expensive... definetly not worth its price.

I really like sending a group of:
- Turret Reapers(they just look fantastic, nothing more :smilydude:)
- Knights with missles(2 and 3)
- Warlords with Sentinel
- Healing Warlords with Sentinel
- Crusaders
- Goliaths
- Gorillas

Of course on my modded version with low prices :wink:


On normal game i always do Commanders, Plasma Reapers and Plasma Templar Knight... They're all mighty :clint:

I don't own the full game, but I remember them from the demo, whereby they attack your base at the end of the demo level. I remeber that they weren't that powerer, as numbers are better than a single powerful unit, so the resources would be better spent on a bigger force that could better attack and defend from multiple directions.

I don't get the gorillas. In the story they are supposed to be this awsome new unit, but when you get them they are retarded, like somebody forgot to put a brain in or something. Their slow and they kill your own units. I thinks it more of a suicide attempt then a superweapon; they kill your bmu's and your units!


...... or maybe it's just me lol

Agreed. They kind of seem like an attempt at a cool character design that ended up being more of a gimmick. Funny how the gorillas' behavior and disadvantages in Machines are very similar to Donkey Kong's in Diddy Kong Racing. Man, gorillas always get knocked.

Well I suppose the gorillas were made to be the coolest unit in the game, but their lack of brain :-P, being lumpy :retard: and their HUGE size, that seems to not fit anywhere makes them one of the worst.
However they are good for defending base from enemy attacks.

I prefer a wasp or a knight! (best in first person mode!)

Anyone remember that map with 4 gorillas, each controlled by a different person, in a tiny square? that was so much fun!

Joust? (I think that's the right name...)

Yeah, that was... interesting.

Kinda tricky to beat 3 AI's, but it is possible.

as long as you have someone to press weapon switch for you in first person mode, it's one of the easiest levels. :clint:

pretty sure the best way to win joust is to sit back and let the AIs go at each other then come in and clean up. FOOLproof!

I really hat them too, lol. 
They are way too slow in turning and moving in general.  And they kill good units all too often :(      :squidly:

Each person had 3 gorrilaz, making a total of 12.
Have you checked out any of my mods?
-If not, it's probably because I haven't uploaded any. :wink:
