IMG Reviews Earth 2140
11:59 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

IMG has posted a review by Adam Newman of Earth 2140, the strategy game from Epic Interactive. In this excerpt, Newman describes the dystopian Earth that provides the setting for this game of resource management and conquest:

Imagine a few wars from now with the scattered environmental disaster or two, and you’ve got the setting of the game. Standard post-Armageddon stuff. The world has conveniently dwindled itself down to two world powers: (1) the United Civilized States (UCS) comprising America, Western Europe, and Northern Africa and (2) the Eurasian Dynasty (ED) covering Eastern Europe and Asia. Australia and most of Africa were laid waste and were so badly contaminated that they have been removed from world maps. Oh dear... how politically incorrect!

The UCS is considered “decadent and lazy” and has developed computers to run their everyday lives. In fact, the computers choose their leaders! The ED is run by a military dictatorship and has developed technology fusing human and mechanical parts, so that they now exist as robots with organic brains!
