If you have played the first Starcraft before, then you'd be surprised that Sunage may remind you of that game. Let's see, there are three types of factions in Sunage to play with, and the game also gives you huge cool battles featuring infantry and futuristic vehicles. There are cool storylines for each of the three campaigns which is another similar concept from Starcraft. Perhaps the only things missing from Sunage are a map editor and Battle.Net play.
Comparing Sunage to Starcraft may be quite a tall order for the former game to stand up to. The biggest problem is that Sunage has arrived too late for many - released in the year 2007, gamers were expecting much more. Take a look at the competition in 2007 (for eg., Supreme Commander,World in Conflict, and Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts) and you will know what I mean.
A reason for the game's existence was cited on the game box - Sunage is "very playable on lower spec PCs and laptops". Great, I like that developers are still taking that into consideration. A little retro idea goes a long way...
