TEQ

TEQ is a science fictional online strategy game set in a near future where all previously existing governments have collapsed and its up to you to set up your own domain where you fight other warlords for powerand conquest. Unlike many other games of this genre, there are neither multiple races or several different forms of government to
choose from.

In TEQ, the key to success lies in choosing the right construction strategy coupled with picking the right mix for your armed forces. There is also  scientific research, which in my experience is not worth much.

Unlike most of the other games in this genre, there are only a few basic types of troops: Bombers, Fighters, Heavy Lasers, Marines and Panzers. Each troop type has its own unique strengths, weaknesses and uses.

For example, Heavy Lasers are purely defensive while Bombers are purely offensive. There are also special operations such as Blitzkrieg and Dogfights that supplement the Regular Attacks.

There are 3 different servers for TEQ: Group, Individual and Team. In this writer's estimation, the Group server where you either play by yourself or with a maximum 5-member Group is the best server. Teams of up to 20 members lack the comraderie of the smaller Groups.

There are some unique features in TEQ that make it different from other near future strategy games. For instance, you buy territories instead of explore for them and its best to construct buildings in pairings such as Beaches & Solar Panels or Condominiums & Tax Offices. You can also make long-term investments in TEQ as well.

There is one bad aspect to TEQ: Its lack of a decent player community. Yes, there are message boards, but they seem lacking and there is not the depth of discussion that you find in other gaming communities.

The very best aspect of this game? Its free!

Time of Defiance: 9.4 (November 10, 2004)

GunBound: 7.8 (November 10, 2004)
