Intricate and yet simple to control RTS

You'd be dumbfound to figure that older strategy games, real time strategies, could pull a punch much more vigorous then the new ones: M.A.X., for instance, a game released in 96 is such a prime example that gaming is not always heading towards heavier, more intricate experiences (not that such a find would surprise anyone!). The fear of most developers is certainly that by forfeiting the lowest common denominator, the games would no longer appeal to larger masses of players, but here's a prime example of a game having lots of character, lots of diversity and complexity and yet, when you get inside it it's as smooth to play as butter. That is so because, a well engineered game (and M.A.X. 2: Mechanized Assault and Exploration is such a game) manages to raise your senses, sharpening them and putting you in a mental state that no longer needs the many crutches developers seem to littler newer games with. Nope, it develops and makes your senses more keen, more out there. Anyway, M.A.X. 2: Mechanized Assault and Exploration is just such a senses sharpening real time strategy, and don't get me wrong, it's by no means without it's flaws, but it pushes you in subtle ways to learn more and to want more. So give it a try, it's a really sweet looking game, clean, easy to interact with and such a glorious RTS experience, for oldschool enthusiasts but also for those fearful of oldies, as it's really easy to control.

A tough real strategy game

Oh, what a game! This is called real strategy game. M.A.X. 2: Mechanized Assault and Exploration is such a game where you have to use a lot of strategy and a lot of thinking. That's the most exciting thing about this game I realized while playing M.A.X 2. If you are already familiar with M.A.X then it will be much easier for you to play this game. For a new gamer it is also an entertaining game which was released in 1998. It was developed and published by Interplay and like other interplay game this is a masterpiece. The story line of this game is very interesting. You have to play as the commander whose mission is to colonize new worlds on different planets. You and your M.A.X force will explore the planets and start building using the resources. You have to build mines, power plants, vehicle factories etc. Build your own combat weapens, vehicles and your own people. Once you start exploring, you will love this game. With 50 lands this is an exciting game which will stick you on your computer
