I Have the Attention Span of a Sparrow…

So on the forum, user syndicatedragon (yes, I’m blaming this all on him/her) asked me a question or two about the recently released (OMG IT’S ON GOG OMG) game Conquest: Frontier Wars. Not remembering the answer, I loaded up a skirmish to try and find out. Over an hour later…

Conquest Frontier Wars

DAMN this game is good. Here I was, planning to write the news and jump into ANOTHER game to start reviewing it, and nooooooooo, Conquest has to get its paws in me again. Damn productivity killer, it is. :/

  1. Conquest is definitely worth the time, though I’ll admit I haven’t played it in several years. Still have the box sitting on a nearby shelf with other big box games, too!

    1. Hah, while I got rid of all of my boxes years ago, I still have the disk. And yeah, I’d not played it in a while either, but wow it all comes back, and is still tons of fun. :) It’s worth picking up on GOG for it being patched AND for the soundtrack. :)

  2. Indeed, the soundtrack is not one to be missed. I pulled each track from the game files ages ago, but it’s a shame it wasn’t all reproduced like the menu track was later on. That turned out quite well.

  3. Yep, recorded by an actual orchestra, I believe. The single player menu track was redone, but I never found the same treatment for any of the other tracks. I don’t remember where I snagged it from, either – possibly CFW Command, but that seems to be dead. I can post it someplace for you to grab, if you’d like.

    1. Well that’s a shame. I love all the music, but that and the 9 minute Terran track are my faves, but they all deserve remastering.

  4. My fav track was the one playing in the single-player menu :-P

    Short, but brilliant.

    So you say, if i buy the game from GoG, i will get not only the game, but the OST as well?

    In regard to the game, its my fav alongside Sins Rebellion and Homeworld. Too bad the kickstarter campaign for the possible sequel failed :-(

Chime In!
