Summary

Hmm...Let's just say it's a Funtastic Classic! (it rhymes)

The Good

The Gameplay was fantastic. It's a creative, unique, top-down veiw where your little soldier buddies follow you around the terrain while you do your little missions. Most of the time you have to kill all the enemies, destroy a building, ect. It's a smooth control using the keyboard and the keys aren't hard to learn at all. It's a great game for it's time and it's a very underrated.

The Bad

The Gameplay is about the only good part of the game. The graphics are very weak. The Terrain graphics are ok, but the blood graphics look more like red jumbo sized lego blocks spurtin' around. The soldiers you control are "pixelish" in look (not at heart) and when they move, it looks like they grow new legs as they move along. So the graphics are a big suck factor.

The Bottom Line

If you don't mind shabby graphics, and you enjoy a good overhead-view action game, then this is a game you should check out today. Or, tommorrow. Or sometime soon. But, if the graphics suckfactor is a problem for you, then you should go be picky somewhere else (In other words, this game is not for you)
