Quoted from Genesis Rising: The Universal Crusade Reviews:Check out these quotes from Genesis Rising: The Universal Crusade reviews & previews
"The exhausting campaign means that those pleasing pictures are best watched in a hidden LAN skirmish mode or in multiplayer (if anyone were actually online). It's easy to spend an hour watching these nifty starships float around a two-dimensional plane, but as soon as you start mousing, you'll want to quit."
"Icky space bugs make Genesis Rising interesting. Even ickier tech bugs and design problems make Genesis Rising annoying."
"Genesis Rising is by no means a total loss and there's certainly some fun to be had, but its lofty potential is squandered due to some poor decisions and a rigid design that will only appeal to a select number of players. Genesis Rising is a pretty, bloody, missed opportunity."
"Missions themselves can hold any range of challenges. There will be some simple seek and destroy missions as there usually are in RTS games, but the game has been crafted with keeping things fresh in mind. The developers don't want players getting bored over the 30 possible missions. While we haven't gotten too far into the game yet, we have seen king of the hill style, flight and fight, puzzle-like solo ship, and RPG style mini-quest missions. Mix all of this in with those completely customizable ships and AI that should react to player actions rather than strict scripts and anybody picking this game up should have a lot of entertainment on their hands."
"Genesis Rising has a lot of great ideas that weren't implemented as well as they could have been. While adaptable living ships warping across the universe sounds like an awesome game, there were too many issues with interface, campaign pacing, and presentation to come out a winner. If you've been itching for some more space battles, Genesis Rising isn't a horrific choice, but we've definitely seen better in the past from games like Homeworld and Nexus: The Jupiter Incident."
