Saurians, Schnozzoids, Bohemians and humans going ape!
Genewars is a pretty classic strategy game, real time style, which pits together four races, Saurians, Schnozzoids, Bohemians and humans, all of them fighting for the supremacy. I'm not sure if the tone of the backstory of the game was funny because the developers wanted it to be so, or not, but there's some of that Hog Wars tongue in cheek humor about Genewars. Maybe its undisclosed, hidden agenda is that it tries to show us that us, human beings are not some Godly creatures, but instead, we are just an evolved species, that acquired intelligence just by accident, so, if that's that case, well, I guess the game kind of makes it's point! But gameplay wise, this is a well put together base building, exploit the resources and go to war kind of deal, which is well executed. The units for the factions aren't really too different playwise, they do have a few specific quirks, but they're balancing is pretty much a one on one kind of deal. But, overall, in the world of RTSes that don't necessarily take themselves too seriously, Genewars surely occupies a good place, with Hog Wars. Not a must play, but a cool game if you stumble upon it.
