Hmm. This looks like it might be good. Kind of like a 3D version of Battle Nations?

They have another one soft launched in Canada called Port Paradise. It looks to be more of a city builder type game, but it looks good as well.

Game Impressions

Early impressions:

This game looks and plays very similar to Battle Nations, to the point where colour schemes and unit designs are at times identical. It basically is Battle Nations 1.5 from what I've seen so far. I've found a few bugs/issues early on, but nothing too major. Really it doesn't seem to bring anything too innovative to the table, if you played and enjoyed Battle Nations you'll probably enjoy this, but don't expect much new beyond a bit more of a storyline for the single player.

For anyone excited about the "control your units in battle" screen shot, unfortunately it simply is dragging and clicking objects on the map. You go into the basic Battle Nations combat when you encounter an enemy avatar. It's basically just like selecting things on a Battle Nations map except 3D and a bit finicky as you have to keep double tapping to confirm actions and movement.

Not far in yet, has timers but base building as in many games and battle seems similar to battle nation. Just on the whole seems like an updated battle nation with better graphics.
