SummarySci-fi turn based squad level tactical combat
The GoodEverything was done quite well for this game - graphics, sound, voiceovers, the tension evoked by the game. The gameplay, of course, was excellent. It was a bit slow paced and actually quite difficult, but worth the effort.
The story is fairly generic - aliens have invaded and you must rescue the colonists and escape, but it serves the gameplay well.
As you progress, your marines gain skills and stats upgrades and naturally you get better equipment and weapons. It's quite fun configuring your squad to maximize each member's capabilities.
The BadProbably the only complaint I have is the difficulty. I've had to replay many missions, and I actually had to cheat to finish the final (though that was the only mission I did it in).
