"You are outgunned. You are massively outnumbered. You must win." These are your orders.

AI War is a one-of-a-kind strategy game that plays like an RTS but feels like a 4X. With tower defense and grand strategy bits, too. You'll be wanting the demo to really know what we mean, there's nothing else on the market remotely like this (as many reviewers have glowingly pointed out).

I really really really would love to get in to this game but no matter how hard I tried, its just so darn hard. I felt like its the "dark souls" of Space RTS.

I was wondering if the 4x setting (slower one) would make a difference in this game?

Yeah, don't be afraid to find your comfort zone. Setting the game on it's lowest difficulty setting basically turns the game into a sandbox. I consider diff 1 through 5 to be Easy. They say 7 difficulty is "normal" but that can probably translate to "normal for them." You can also select easier AI to go up against at the start. Pretty much any aspect of the games difficulty can be tweaked. Just don't make the common mistake that a lot of players make with their first campaigns. A low planet setting doesn't make the game easier at all. You just turn the game into a cage match with a couple of 800 lb gorillas.

And yeah, Dark Souls of RTS isn't a bad analogy. I usually say that AI War is to RTS as Dwarf Fortress is to Sims.

I am suprised that noone mentioned "Supreme Commander" here.
I checked the demo just now and I was expecting something more original but I can see the rip offs of Supreme Commander in every corner of this game.
The economy system of the game is almost copied entirely as it is from Supreme Commander.

Matter Creator = Mass Generator, Mark I,II,III = Tech I,II,III
Science Lab = Research Lab(SUPCOM2), Knowledge = Research Points(SUPCOM2)
Orbital Command Center = Armored Command Unit.

Even the "Reclaim of wreckage" feature from Supreme Commander is used in this game.

If you have never heard of Supreme Commander series and think that AI:War is a good game, you will have a blast if you play Supreme Commander, especially SupCom: Forged Alliance.

The creator of AI War has never tried to hide or deny the influence of Total Annihlation on AI War. Using the term "rip off" is harsh and juvenile. Practically every game developed borrows the best ideas of other games. Nothing is ever created in a vacuum.

Further, AI War has a depth to its design and gameplay that is unmatched by any other RTS I know of. That certainly includes SupCom.

Command Centers are more like StarCraft CCs, no? And the knowledge comparison is really stretching it. Wreckage reclamation is not the same either, wreckage is used for rebuilding lost structures, not taking resources from killed enemies. Only similarity is that metal and crystal are consumed over time instead of when a unit is queued but that has been in use since the days of Command & Conquer (dunno about Dune 2 since I only played the Dune 2000 remake).

The core concept of AI War is the asymmetry between you and the AI, SupCom has nothing like that. Some people improvise by playing coop against top difficulty AIs in SupCom but AI War is completely designed around that kind of setup.

Ofcourse there are and has to be areas where AI Wars differs from Supreme Commander. Otherwise why bother making a game if it's going to be completely same with a previous title.
Don't get me wrong I am not saying that AI Wars is a bad game. It just reminds me so much of Supreme Commander to a degree that I feel like I am playing a reduced version of SupCom. Cheers.

I enjoy this game a lot, this game has enough content and replay ability if i was forced to live very long time with only 1 game to choose i would pick this game.

This game is very well done for indie game. And still very active development and community
