The final closed beta event for Petroglyph's End of Nations is here. The staff over at RTSGuru.com has been toiling around inside its many game modes, and they've got their staff's first impressions to share. Check it out at RTSGuru.com.
The first thing that impressed me about End of Nations was not the friendly UI, or integrated videos to teach me, nor even the ease of getting straight into the action. It was the menu. Yep, the menu threw me back to the days when I played Defcon, a game over nuclear war and consisted of a map of the world in the style of some 80's console. The main menu in EON offers the blue glow of the world with lit up areas of events and a dashboard seamlessly melding in at the top. I wonder what this says about me when I get excited over something so trivial.
