No, clue about how good this game either way.(only watched streams so far) Isn't Giant Bomb usually tough on all there reviews? Never really payed attention to them but noticed there reviews seem to be lower then most.

The game itself is actually pretty impressive. That is, once you can actually play it

I love the new engine. Being able to upgrade and add to special buildings an watching things unfold in realtime is just plain awesome.

That's generally true. They hardly give out 5/5 scores, and dole out just plenty 1 or 2 star reviews. I find it refreshing. They cut through the crap.

Cut through the crap? You mean their reviews aren't thorough and detailed? That doesn't sound refreshing - that sounds like bad reviewing.

Most of the Amazon reviews (even from the verified purchases) and the metacritic user reviews are negative as well. Plus there's IGN in progress review which doesn't sound too optimistic at the moment.

They're very thorough and detailed. Did you read it?
