A Disappointing Storm on the Horizon: Stormrise Xbox 360 Review

Title: A Disappointing Storm on the Horizon: Stormrise Xbox 360 Review


Stormrise, developed by The Creative Assembly and released for the Xbox 360, promised to be a revolutionary real-time strategy game that would redefine the genre. However, after spending considerable time with the game, it becomes evident that Stormrise falls short of its ambitious goals. This review will delve into the various aspects of the game, highlighting its strengths and weaknesses, ultimately leading to a star rating.

Graphics and Visuals:

One of the few redeeming qualities of Stormrise is its visually appealing graphics. The game presents a post-apocalyptic world with detailed environments and impressive character models. The attention to detail in the ruined cities and landscapes is commendable. However, the camera angles and overall presentation can be disorienting, making it difficult to fully appreciate the visuals. The lack of clarity during intense battles often leads to frustration and confusion.

Gameplay and Controls:

Stormrise attempted to introduce a unique control scheme, utilizing the Xbox 360 controller's analog sticks for unit selection and movement. Unfortunately, this innovation falls flat. The controls feel clunky and imprecise, making it challenging to execute strategies effectively. The lack of a traditional point-and-click interface, which is common in real-time strategy games, hampers the overall experience. The learning curve is steep, and even after investing significant time, the controls never feel intuitive.

Campaign and Storyline:

The campaign mode in Stormrise offers a promising premise, with two factions battling for control in a post-apocalyptic world. However, the execution of the storyline is lackluster. The narrative fails to engage players, and the characters lack depth and development. The missions become repetitive and fail to provide a sense of progression or excitement. The lack of variety in objectives and the absence of meaningful choices make the campaign mode feel like a chore rather than an immersive experience.

Multiplayer and Replayability:

Stormrise offers multiplayer modes, including cooperative and competitive gameplay. While the multiplayer aspect adds some replayability, the lackluster gameplay mechanics and controls hinder the overall experience. The limited player base and matchmaking issues further diminish the multiplayer's potential. Ultimately, Stormrise fails to provide a compelling reason to revisit the game once the campaign is completed.

Sound and Music:

The sound design in Stormrise is adequate, with decent voice acting and atmospheric background music. However, the audio fails to stand out and becomes forgettable amidst the game's other shortcomings. The lack of variety in sound effects and repetitive dialogue further detract from the overall experience.

Star Rating: ★★☆☆☆


Stormrise for the Xbox 360 falls short of its ambitious goals, delivering a disappointing real-time strategy experience. While the game boasts visually appealing graphics, the clunky controls, lackluster campaign, and underwhelming multiplayer modes hinder the overall enjoyment. Stormrise fails to innovate or provide a compelling reason to invest time in its post-apocalyptic world. With its numerous flaws and missed opportunities, Stormrise receives a two-star rating.
