Summary

Mindless shooter with virtually no strategy, just kill, kill, kill

The Good

Decent graphics, even though there's no textures. it's all polygons, fast actions, variety of vehicles to drive (helicopter, tank, turret, alien fighter), full 3D environment (when you get to move), occasional interesting challenges (like the "fire-fighting" scenario)

The Bad

Too mindless, no strategy required at all, just shoot at everything except your people, enemies always approach in same patterns (just memorize), turret shooting resembles both space invaders (in 3D) and missile command (save your buildings).

The Bottom Line

The completely mindless shooter with the "shoot the invading aliens" motif... The items have good number of polygons, but no texture so they look funny. For non-action people, some of the scenarios are virtually impossible. Overall, this mindless shooter is simply too repetitive to be a PC title.
