If you played Netstorm then you will easily understand what this game is like. Stratosphere and Netstorm are a lot alike, but are different in places also. For those of you who don't know what Netstorm is then I will explain it. Netstorm was a game where there was multiple pieces of land in the air, each player had 1 piece of land to start off with. You use the land you claimed to build up forces and to gather resources. There are no moving units, just things like catapults and cannons. It's basically the same thing in Stratosphere except it's 3D and you only have 1 big piece of land to which you can add more pieces to it. And to gather resources you can kill off enemies and take their's or just attract them off of mountains.

The graphics to this game are pretty good, not eye candy, but average. The landscape looks pretty good, basically green grassy like landscape with a cool fog effect. The textures are pretty cool, some parts of the game are 2D but the 2D parts don't make it look bad. It's nothing special, but the graphics are still good. The explosions are not so great, they look pretty bad because they have no pyro in it, just basically clouds is all you see.

I like this type of game because it requires a lot of strategy. You have to line up your units in the right places on top of your air-fortress. You have a wide variety of weapons to put on your fortress. You can build cannons, energy units with supply cannons and weaponry with power to work and repair units. One good thing this game came with is an in-game tutorial. A very easy one too, just takes a few minutes and you can learn how to play and then you can kill off your enemies.

I'd say this is a pretty fun game, but it really depends on what type of games you like. If you don't like strategy then I suggest you don't get this game. Learning how to play this game is very easy and the control are very easy too, it just takes a few minutes of your time to learn it.
