Two very similar factions dull its edge, but Grey Goo's old-school take on strategy still makes it one of the most interesting new RTS games in years.

One of the best real-time strategies for some time, although it's a shame that despite a few new ideas it's not really interested in pushing the genre forward.

Great gameplay and a modern look make Grey Goo an excellent traditional RTS.

With a hefty asking price, Grey Goo has a handful of wonderful ideas while also treading similar ground, but the community dropoff rate has absolutely killed the online aspect of it. It's a solid real-time strategy that will likely please fans of the genre, but most may want to wait for the resurgence of players with the inevitable sequel or expansion, which will hopefully come with more features. The titular Goo race is one of the freshest aspects of the genre in a long time, and I hope that Petroglyph has some more great ideas up its sleeves for the future.

By most standards, Grey Goo is an excellent real-time strategy game with fantastically unique factions and stunning graphics. Its campaign undermines some of its positive aspects with a steep difficulty curve, some annoying "gotcha" moments, and maps that can make it difficult for expansion. Despite this, and the amount of multitasking it takes to manage over the Goo faction, you can hardly find a better real-time strategy game than Grey Goo.

Grey Goo is definitely a throwback, albeit one with some compelling innovations. Those who remember the heyday of the RTS genre should get a kick out of it, while the unprepared may be scared away.

Grey Goo wildly exceeds all expectations for presentation and gameplay. While there are a few issues with cheating and infinite units in single player, the multiplayer is rock solid. The Goo itself presents an all-new twist to the RTS world, and any fan of the genre should experience it. Grey Goo is the best RTS title I've played in a very long time.

Grey Goo, if you'll excuse the pun, oozes originality. It's a refreshing take on a classic style of real-time strategy gaming. Players shouldn't be put off by the somewhat unappealing title. Grey Goo features a compelling story and an enjoyable gameplay experience. This is a game that's well worth a look for any RTS fan that definitely brings something new to the table.
