Comment: Why doesn’t GO use the engine from Glest? Glest is an awesome strategy game that has been thriving for years. It would be amazing to see a 3D version of Ogre Wars.

Comment: Glest is an open source strategy game. The game is fun and challenging. Since it is open source game developers can use the engine for their own games.

Comment: Its got crummy graphics,not much gameplay but helluvalotta mods, and its still a little fun none the less.If this game got, just a 3 hour campaign and GRAPHICS THAT WERENT DATED IN THE YEAR 2001 it would be a world better, and not make you think the devs just purposely did a bad job. If you want an rts for free, this a a fine choice but saga is a bit better.


  1. Glest is a pretty fun RTS game. The graphics are kind of old, especially given how old this game is, but at the same time it’s very reasonable and seems to look fine compared to today’s games. Characters are well-animated; you can see them mining, walking, attacking, etc. Gameplay is alright though; doesn’t look like it offers anything new to the genre, but I do admire that the game was designed to be moddable. Overall, I’d give this game a 3.75/5.
