Nexagon Deathmatch is a very entertaining title. With it's fine blend of chess based tactics and action, the game is a total delight. The addition of online multiplayer and two player lan multiplayer simplys adds to the excitement and makes the game that much more exciting. Though the game is more of a niche title, it's still a good time and a lot of fun for someone looking for something a little more mind intensive.
Despite the quality of the graphics, the gameplay and the music more than make up for it. This game is definitely original and addictive. If you are looking for something totally new this might be up your alley. There are a lot of things to do in the game and it can keep you busy for quite a while. What’s better is the chance to go against people online and see how they stand against your team.

Nexagon Deathmatch is a unique game for a unique type of gamer. If offers a challenging blend of real-time tactics in a 3D action setting reminiscent of Diablo and set in the energized world of televised sports and live audiences. In this day of cookie-cutter RTS games I have to give props to Strategy First for bucking the trends of conventional strategy gaming and daring to try something innovative and fresh. While I don’t feel comfortable offering a blanket recommendation for this game I would encourage anyone who is remotely interested to check out the demo that offers two arenas and two pre-made teams. If you enjoy the demo then chances are you will love the game.

Игра, даже отягощенная неприглядной графикой, неудобным интерфейсом и некоторой несбалансированностью, все равно способна увлечь. Nexagon Deathmatch, конечно, еще не дослужился до почетной медали, но представляет собой действительно достойный проект, достаточно неординарный и, надеюсь, с большим будущим. Немного боевого опыта, и перед этим пока еще зеленым юнцом не устоит ни один поклонник стратегий.
Let me sum it all up for you. Don't bother. It's really not deep or visually exciting enough to keep you interested. While there's nothing quite exactly like the game currently on store shelves, there are still plenty of better strategy games that will keep your interest a lot longer.
If you can overlook the frustrating controls and a few missing features, you'll find that Nexagon: Deathmatch is actually a decent strategy game that offers a fairly distinctive gameplay experience. Despite the difficulty you'll likely have in finding online opponents, the game does offer a good variety of pits, as well as four uniquely designed playable sides.

The concept wasn’t bad, but Nexagon: Deathmatch’s uninspiring execution and lack of depth make for a forgettable gaming experience. If this is what the distant future holds, then I’m glad I won’t be around to see it.
Nexagon Deathmatch ist viel weniger actionreich, als euch die an ein Boxmatch erinnernde Aufmachung glauben machen will. Das rasch öde werdende Echtzeit-Taktikspiel schafft es nicht, einen über das erste Anfangsinteresse hinaus bei der Stange zu halten. Das liegt sicher auch an der veralteten 3D-Grafik und den lieblos inszenierten Kämpfen, die außerdem trotz integrierter Pausenfunktion unübersichtlich und hektisch sind. Die Auszeiten sind zudem begrenzt. Ihr identifiziert euch einfach zu wenig mit eurer Horde, da es keine Charakterelemente wie im Rollenspiel gibt. Allein im Multiplayer macht Nexagon etwas mehr Spaß, da die Kämpfe da nicht so einseitig sind. Das billig gemachte Gladiatorenspiel kann man aber trotzdem niemandem guten Gewissens empfehlen.

Der Name trügt: Nexagon Deathmatch ist kein Shooter, sondern ein Echtzeit-Strategiespiel. Darin bekämpfen sich Aliens, Roboter und andere Gestalten in futuristischen Arenen und buhlen um die Gunst des Publikums. Hässliche Grafik und dumme KI werden Ihnen aber höchstens ein paar Buh-Rufe entlocken.
Somewhere inside Nexagon: Deathmatch, there's an interesting concept trying to get out, but the arena combat, base building, and futuristic sports theme never gel. The lack of clear instruction, the fun-killing load times, frequently lame combat, and some bugs and pathfinding problems don't do the game any favors. As it stands, Nexagon often feels more like drudge work than entertainment. During the game, an announcer will sometimes say, "Wake me up when it's over." You'll likely be thinking the same thing.
