Ashes of the Singularity delivers thoughtful real-time strategy with tons of units in play, but drab maps and a poor story.

7.7 / 10.0

Once you break free from the tactics-focused mindset of most RTS games, Ashes of the Singularity is a challenging, engrossing, and cerebral exercise in strategy that has me mentally iterating on army compositions, build timings, and board deployment schemes even when I’m not playing it. The campaign comes across as an unwanted stepchild beside the strong multiplayer, and the terrain art is dull and uninspired, yet Oxide has delivered on the promise of bringing back capital-S Strategy to the RTS space. This is a warzone where the shrewd general looking at the bigger picture will triumph over the fast-thinking ace with lightning hotkeys.

Plays things too safe and generic, relying on classic sensibilities and only bringing massive unit battles to the forefront. With little room to excel via micromanagement, conflicts devolve into blobs of of units blindly barraging each other

Ashes of the Singularity is a big and bold 4X strategy game, but if you’re looking for much beyond scale, you’ll be sorely disappointed.
