A mostly forgotten PC RTS from 2001 that got a HD remake this year. Its a decent RTS focusing on zonecontroll, a campaign with 30 or so missions and decent unit variety. Were not talking starcraft here but still it plays like a proper RTS and can be quite fun.
“Lead your Z: Steel Soldiers into the next century rebooted for the rocket fueled fans of the classic hard-core strategy game. In the bloody aftermath of ‘Z’ comes Z: Steel Soldiers. All your favourite strategies and gameplay from the classic version, with graphics that have powered into the 21st century, vivid 3D landscapes, and a state of the art engine that brings your game to life. Meet the new breed of robots, with a taste for war and a warped sense of humour. Z: Steel Soldiers – you’ve never had it so good!”
When you take control of your Steel Soldiers unit, you’d better hit the ground running, as you take some superb war machinery straight into the heat of battle. You can start to build up your forces when this firefight is over. Right now you’d better just dig in!
Every theatre of the war is intertwined with the non-linear plot, revealing more twists and turns than a roller coaster, this is no ordinary battle, and these are no ordinary troops. They are fearless troops who drink rocket fuel and pick fights with saber-tooth snow slugs just for fun. You've never met robots quite this screwed-up before...
