The graphics and sound effects are among the best you'll see on the ST and I can thoroughly recommend Terrorpods - it's a superb game. My only complaint - and this is true for most ST games - is that it is a bit pricey.
If you like your strategy spiced with the chance to blast the odd alien then Terrorpods could be worth a look; if you prefer your blasting spiced with the odd chance to think then you could well get frustrated and, eventually, bored.
Generell bleibt zu sagen, daß man als Liebhaber von „Ballerei pur“ hier nicht auf seine Kosten kommt. Wer aber kniffelige Spiele mag, die Action- und Strategie-Elemente gut vermengt aufweisen, der ist mit TERRORPODS sehr gut bedient, Mir persönlich hat es gefallen. Übrigens kann man den Schwierigkeitsgrad von 1 (leicht) bis 6 (unmöglich/siehe obigen Erfahrungsbericht) einstellen, so daß das Game auch über längere Zeit interessant bleibt.

The graphics aren't bad and the game is engrossing, but the £25 price tag is a little on the steep side.
