What is There Came an Echo about?
Ender Wiggin. Admiral Ackbar. That dude who commands the G.I. Joes. These totally rad commanders knew that battles are won not by a single footsoldier, but by issuing precise commands that put their units in position to achieve victory.
In There Came an Echo, follow in those commanders footsteps by giving orders to Corrin Webb (Wil Wheaton) and his squadmates in a unique real-time strategy experience. Using an advanced voice recognition system, direct your units through a variety of mission types against foes armed with futuristic energy weaponry and personal force fields. Make your move with standard commands ("All units, advance to Bravo 3!") or utilize custom variants to express your unique personality ("Everyone, do the worm over to Buttface 3!"). Keep it classy, folks.
I am more than satisfied with this game. The voice control works without major problems, even if one makes subtle promises. The standard commands are quite intuitive, the execution starts immediately. This allows quite fast commands and a good game. Of course, it feels slower than playing with the mouse, but it has more appeal. At the beginning the plot reminds us very much of Matrix, which our first member of the team notices and immediately calls us Morpheus. But this also shows the humor and freedom of conversation. Nice allusions to movies and games, paired with a little sarcasm. If you want to play something else and have a reasonably good headset, you will have a lot of fun with it.
