The mod is defenitely complex. There are three new techtrees that branch out and intertwine in a myriad of ways (culminating in a 4th techtree that requires units from all three races). The iscripting effects are great too, and it certainly took a lot of MemGrafting to do this.
A total conversion of all techtrees, iscripting effects and even custom graphics? And created in only a month? There's no question that Ex Machina deserves a 20 here.
A few minor glitches, but nothing crashing or effecting gameplay drastically. A very well put together mod.
The first time I played this mod I was in awe of the originality of the mod. The hybridization of races was a great idea, and there's also interesting things like Surveyors that I haven't seen before. There are a few units that got a 'meh' from me, but not everything can be fancy iscripting explosions.
The mod is excellent, there are just a few units that don't seem up to par with the quality of the rest of the mod.
Gameplay is very fun, every time I've played it, I've had a great time. It does get a little annoying as Alpha Vector sometimes, but that certainly shouldn't turn you away from the mod. Pick this one up and try it, you won't be disappointed.
FINAL SCORE: 93/100
I love it. Go and play the mod and you'll see why I think so highly of it. There are explosions. It'll be fun, I promise.
WOULD I RECOMMEND IT?
WOULD I PLAY IT FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE?
Honestly, I don't think there's ANY mod that I'd play for the rest of my life. But is Ex Machina a mod I see myself playing for a long time? Yes.
Agamemnon is certainly a talented modder, and it shows in the effort put into this mod. If you haven't already, I also recommend checking out his beta for Atrea's Children, which looks like another great mod. Can't wait!
