is a 3D real-time strategy game that should appeal to novice strategy gamers, or those challenged by the complexity of the original Total Annihilation. Total Annihilation: Battle Tactics continues Total Annihilation's saga between the Arm and the Core, with dozens of new tactical missions available for either side.
The game features quick scenarios/missions that utilize select units and provide novice players with an opportunity to learn several basic, and some not-so-basic, strategies imperative to successful real-time strategy gaming. The smaller, quicker battles are also perfectly suited to satisfying any veteran player's nagging Total Annihilation urge without requiring a three-hour-long slugfest. With missions separated by length, players can blast through numerous scenarios that can easily be accomplished during a lunch break.
