Earth 2150 is an RTS (Real-Time Strategy) game developed by Reality Pump Studios and released in year 2000. It is the sequel of Earth 2140.
This game offers a dire vision of the future, where, after huge catastrophic nuclear explosions of untested weaponry over the north pole, the Earth was moved away from its normal orbit, towards the sun. These explosions were caused by a nuclear war mobilized by an international conflict between two fictitious empires: UCS (United Civilized States) and ED (Eurasian Dinasty).
Now these two factions (plus a new one: the Lunar Corporation) must immediately obtain enough resources to build an evacuation spaceship and fly away before the Earth reaches its end.
The player can select his side (faction) with different types of weapons and buildings to choose. The environment is non-linear, with excellent effects like fog, rain, and thunderstorms. Different weather conditions, daylight and night missions, and Earth's changes while it gets closer to the sun: melted ice, volcanic terrain and rivers of lava, give an incentive to complete the game.

Review summary
