    I got into this game really late, due to less than stellar reviews which put me off trying it, however I was playing it yesterday (wasn't feeling too well) after buying it on steam and it really is great.

    Not in the league of something like Supreme Commander but its certainly a very fun RTS game.

    If you want to check it out, watch this video (video footage comes up about 6 or so minutes in).

    I should check something like that out. It's been a while since I've played an RTS.

    This is a Windows Live! game, right?

    yeah its an option in the game.

    its worth buying for the walkers alone, one of the most ingenious unit in a FPS ever.

    Is it possible to play the game online as you could with Zero Hour, Generals with the lobby etc, without paying for the subscription?

    mmm not sure, I bought it from Steam and it says my key isnt valid, opened a ticket with steam about it. Good game though, and I think zardon meant to type in "RTS" ;)

    the defilers are an awesome unit, can't believe I missed this game.
