The Portable Gamer writes: "It's a shame that Dawn of Discovery suffers from some irritating niggles as overall it's a very enjoyable game. It may not be aimed at the hardcore RTS player, but I think even the most cynical of RTS gamers would enjoy this to some extent, and other gamers will love it for its welcoming visuals and helpful introductory gameplay. Unlike other RTS games, it doesn't have a scarily high learning curve to begin with nor is it intimidating, making this an ideal title for casual gamers and the younger gamer. Dawn of Discovery deserves to do well despite its faults, but I suspect it may well be overlooked for more recognisable titles which is a real shame. If you spot this in your local game store, do pick it up. It's well worth a look".
