I'm Gaming Jay: Youtube gamer, let's player, fan of retro games, and determined optimist... Join me in this series while I try out EACH of the video games in the book 1001 VIDEO GAMES YOU MUST PLAY BEFORE YOU DIE, before I die. The game review for each game will focus on the question of whether you MUST play this game before you die. But to be honest, the game review parts are just for fun, and are not meant to be definitive, in depth reviews; this series is more about the YouTube gamer journey itself. From Mario games to the Halo series, from arcade games to Commodore 64, PC games to the NES and Sega Genesis, Playstation to the Xbox, let's play those classic retro games that we grew up with, have fond memories of, or heard of but never got a chance to try! And with that said, the game review for today is...
Myth: The Fallen Lords
Platform(s) Windows, Mac OS
Genre(s) Real-time tactics
Myth is a tactical RTS game from Bungie, the developers of Halo. Interesting bit of trivia, Halo itself was originally envisioned and developed as an RTS before it evolved into the FPS we all know and love today.
As far as Myth goes, the game is a fairly interesting tactical experience. Unlike most RTS games that involve you building a base, managing resources, training soldiers, and engaging in a series of tactical battles, Myth focuses more on the detailed micro-management of limited forces during battles. In Myth, there are no bases, no resources, and no training new soldiers. Each mission gives you an existing force and requires you to use those soldiers efficiently to defeat your foes.
The tactical take on strategy makes Myth a unique strategy experience. On top of that, the game features a fairly realistic physics engine for its time. For example, if you lob an explosive at an enemy and it lands on a hill, it can actually roll back and at you! Arrows also damage whatever they hit when they land, creating an interesting dynamic with ranged weapons as its very hard to hit moving targets but dangerous to fire into frays of friendlies and enemies engaged in melee combat.
Beyond the unique gameplay, Myth definitely feels like a Bungie game. This parts a bit intangible, but the personality and characters and detail in the game feels very Bungie, and this is a good thing. Ultimately Myth is a solid tactical strategy game that will likely appeal to strategy fans and provide a fun and engaging tactical experience.
➙ Must You Play It?
Myth is a unique tactical strategy game from the developers of Halo. It features an emphasis on efficient micro-management of your forces during battle, rather than base-building. All in all, a decent game that would likely appeal to the strategy gamers out there.
