James Murff of Big Download already gave AI War a full review back in 2009, and now he has given the same treatment to all three of the game’s expansions: The Zenith Remnant, Children of Neinzul, and Light of the Spire.
Some of our favorite excerpts:
“Each expansion is independent of the others and brings new ships and Ai types unique to that particular expansion. The one thing they have in common, however, is how much they increase the difficulty compared to the original game. These expansions are for the hardest of the hardcore.”
From the Zenith Remnant portion:
“Zenith Remnant provides a ton of new content for players to sink their teeth into, and it’s an excellent addition to the AI War franchise… If you have AI War, this expansion is a must purchase, and paves the way for the next two in terms of difficulty.”
From the Children of Neinzul portion:
“You aren’t so much purchasing a new expansion, but rather donating a few bucks to a charity and getting extra content in AI War as a result. It’s a cool system that we wish more developers tried.”
From the Light of the Spire portion:
“Spire is our personal favorite expansion… The new campaign types are significantly harder than the core game, and the additions to the AI’s arsenal take a heavy toll on inexperienced players. The sheer variety it adds, though, is extremely impressive. If you feel daring enough, this is the expansion that we recommend highest of all three.”
Murff concluded each review with a verdict of “Must Own”, which puts a significant amount of love in our tummies. Read all three AI War expansion reviews here.
