GameSpot writes: "There are more nightmarish issues, of course. Such as how the terrible enemy AI ignores your attacks, or rushes past your powerful stalkers in endless, scripted waves. And how the broken checkpoints (don't let the "saving progress" indicator fool you) and single save slot mean potentially saving at an inopportune time, forcing you to restart a mission from the beginning. And the automated rally-point function, which may send your units off in the most unhelpful direction possible. Suffice it to say, Stormrise is a broken debacle that is in no way deserving of either your time or your money".
