The Benchmark

“Dark Reign 2 is a massive improvement over its predecessor, especially in terms of the way it looks. It is without a doubt the best looking RTS title to date, and with its super camera system is destined to be the benchmark which other forthcoming games in the genre look to for guidance.”
