Starburst Magazine reviews Ashes of the Singularity and gives it a 9 out of 10!

If you have any investment in this genre at all, if the idea big Star Wars sca...

The game allows you to command an army of sci-fi forces against a human or computer opponent in real-time action. I had a hands-on preview of the game that confirmed the title is an exercise in th...
