Below you can find "helpful" reviews from verified owners of Grey Goo - provided by Steam. You can provide a review for this game on Steam, and it may be added here automatically after a short time.
What sets this game apart, and makes it superior, is the goo itself as a faction. It has a delightfully simple but well-designed, well-balanced, and just fun to play mechanic. The Humans and Beta are your typical Quick style RTS fare, and play about the same as most other RTS games you've played. The Shroud has its own set of interesting, fun mechanics as well, but imho, the goo is just awesome and fun.
Now that I have your attention. Let me start off by saying this game has a very good Command and Conquer feel, while also having a Starcraft 2 Rock, Paper, Scissors triangle of units to counter what with what. The graphics are amazing and the workshop for making maps is alive and well.
The 3 unique factions are the Humans, Beta and the Goo, The humans are trying to find places to colonize. The Beta (pronounced Bee-ta) are trying to escape from something, The Goo are trying to absorb everything om nom nom. If you loved all the C&C titles (Except C&C4 we don't talk about that aborted fetus) Give this a shot. Its definitely worth the full price.
Perhaps the simplest way to describe this game is "Not-Starcraft". Whilst your units have many unique and interesting abilities, they are all passive, and so you won't be needing any hotkey mastery to use them. That's not to say managing your army is easy; keeping tabs on some of the more unique factions such as the beautifully fresh Goo can be exhilirating. But overall, this is a simpler RTS, a throwback to a simpler time.
The story mode is a lot better than I was expecting, with some lovely CG cutscenes backed up by 10/10 music by Frank Klepacki. This game is worth it for the soundtrack alone, with different themes for each of the 4 factions. Each faction has a different feel, in gameplay, design, and music, which makes them all feel exciting to play.
Cannot reccomend this highly enough to any RTS fan.
And yes it's a definitive copy, so you'll get all perks for mere few bucks. It has extra campaign, and of course the great soundtracks. At this rate, it's a steal.
When I fired up the game for the first time, it instantly reminded me of Starcraft 2 and even more with GG's futuristic template, let alone same genre.
Graphically it's neat, have many in-game options for like Shader, Geometry and the regular Vsync. CG is nice, only one notch less than Blizzard's in my eyes. And I can play with 60 fps flat on my mediocre laptop.
The problem is the Multiplayer. The game, despite it's a decent MP game, community's dead. You may need to arrange match with other people before you jump into MP. But no worry, the single player aspect is already more than enough content. I'm enjoying playing the campaigns so far.
Overall, though, it's fun. I don't like multiplayer that much in RTS games so I can't speak to that element, I can't imagine too many people are playing it.
Still don't know why they added a fourth race though.
If you tend to like canned beans in general, there is a decent statistical likelihood that you will probably like this particular can about as much as usual.
If you don't care for canned beans or already have a favorite brand, the likelihood of you being impressed by this particular can are shall we say low.
Personally I'm not a huge fan of canned beans. But every now and then they can be ok. This can was ok too.
Gameplay is reminiscent of old-styled games in the genre in a very good way. Faction balance is good in general, and their gameplay is asymmetric. Macroing tends to be the main focus; you set many factories to build on repeat. Single main resource. Base-building style varies between the factions.
Single-player campaign (with bundled DLC campaign) took me around 16 hours while completing secondaries. A few missions were frustratingly hard (on hard difficulty), but by no means unbeatable after a restart or two after I knew what to expect.
It's worth it, especially if it goes on sale. Great cinematics and soundtrack, story is alright with a few missteps in pacing.
Multiplayer lacks the community to keep it afloat, sadly, so I would recommend you base your purchase on the single-player aspect.
Nice graphics, good music, good sound effects and it just generally feels good to play. I found myself cranking up the music volume which is always a good sign in a Westwood/Petroglyph title! Thanks, Frank Klepacki!
Missions feel good so far and I tried some skirmishes too which were fun (even if I'm not very good yet!!).
Unit voices are present and correct and sound good.
So far my only real complaint is that the base-building with the Human and particularly Beta faction feels very clunky and strange. Structures have to be attached to each other in a kind of grid pattern and it feels odd and cluttered to me. I'd prefer just a normal Red Alert 2 -style building method, that's my favourite. Construction units can be OK too.
I believe the Shroud faction has a normal building system though and the Goo has a far more novel system than the others.
That aside though it's a fun title and my impression so far is around an 8/10 :)
RTS experienced players: good macro game, some matchups require nice micro but its a good balance between the two. long times between patches but thats usually fine. Small community, everybody knows everybody. and most ppl arent mean :P que times are always short, always somebody online.
unexperienced players: This game is has a small community, resulting in "mis-matches". This means that new players often play against higher ranked people because the higher ranked people go into the que to find an opponent more often than a low ranked player. Although the matchmaking system does work, if you or another high ranked player are in que for 5+ minutes it puts you up against eachother.
I'm rank 8 atm in this game, if you want to know more about the game - even if you don't know if you want to buy it add me and I can tell you more
It's mostly an old-school type RTS. By that I mean it's based on strategy not how fast you can click. And with really unique factions.
The story is very well done and very well told. New things are being added to the game at a moderate pace, so it's good to have this in your library.
(Like a whole new race for free, totally worth reinstalling.)
I enjoy this much more than starcraft 2, because there hasn't been a single time I've lost because I didn't click around fast enough, it's always been I was genuinily outdone strategically.
My only dislike is the community, everyone is very nice and friendly.
THEY'RE ALL JUST SO GOOD AT THIS.
I'm now plat league after getting throughly spanked for a while. But now, with my behind well toned from the spanking, I am doing some spanking of my own!
And you can too!
