"This is one of the most unabashedly sci-fi/fantasy real-time strategy games we've ever seen. And that isn't a bad thing. The game unapologetically draws from a number of cultural, and oftentimes nerdy, influences. That isn't a bad thing, either. But that's why WorldShift defies categorization; it's difficult to say, exactly, what niche sub-genre WorldShift falls into, unless you're in one of those hip Wes Anderson AT&T commercials, saying something like 'Diastarworldcraftofwarhammerblo,' while calling your friends from an iPhone. But we digress."
