Upon launching the game you're greeted with a pretty cool animation of red forces fighting against blue forces. Kooistra has designed the game to have graphics similar to his previous titles where it seems like the forces are from some futuristic time. But the game does have an awesome art style to it.
Another good feature is the map zooming. Being able to see the whole map then quickly zoom into a specific portion really helps the game. At the beginning of each level, there are cut scenes that go along with the story and then you jump into the game. For those familiar with RTS games, this one shouldn't be hard to understand, but newbies will require time to get used the controls and strategy.
