Glest ( is a free 3D real-time strategy game, where you control the armies of two different factions: Tech, which is mainly composed of warriors and mechanical devices, and Magic, that prefers mages and summoned creatures in the battlefield.

Glest is not just a game, but also an engine to make strategy games, based on XML and a set of tools. A few mods already exist.

I see that this game aspires for greatness as a well-built RTS, however it has several major flaws.

There's no tutorial to teach you how to play, so the learning curve of the game is as harsh as Warcraft III. The voice acting was a bit informal sounding, but that's nothing major. I like the effects, but I couldn't zoom in/out and the controls aren't shown.

One thing I don't really like is that there's not much of a difficulty setting option available, other than CPU and CPU (Ultra), and to me that's not what I want. I don't want to range from Normal to Hard, especially as a new player. The AI use cliche rush tactics I've seen from Starcraft and Warcraft III where the AI just builds up a huge army and then just flings it at you, obliterating you unless you have a massive army to defend yourself with. This is trite and overdone, and I am dismayed that I see it here.

The interface of the game is rather difficult at times when you want to know what something is when you build it, and descriptions are at a premium.

Overall, I like the theme, the graphics, the ideas, and the variety to settings. But it falls short when you notice the lack of a tutorial, an unforgiving AI, and the lack of a pause feature. I give it a 4/5, but I think that with some tweaking, this could be a 5/5.
