Loot Ninja (Mar 04, 2010)
As you progress through the missions, you first fight only one enemy team at a time, then eventually multiple teams at once, until you have 4 teams on each map, and you must remain victorious over all of them to win the level. Greed Corp is a fantastic game for fans of the genre, and first-timers will love it too. It’s easy to play, but still challenging, and the production values are high. Of all the recent releases in the Xbox Live Arcade, Greed Corp is easily in the top three. My advice, buy this game and play the heck out of it. It’s a blast. It’s available on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
TeamXbox (Feb 25, 2010)
Greed is, quite literally, the name of the game here. You’ve got to take what you want, keep what you’ve got and make sure you come out on top in the end. Win or lose, though, you’re guaranteed to have a good time with the experience. Who knew that an XBLA game would ultimate prove ol’ Gordon Gekko right? Greed, at least in this case, is definitely good.
Neoseeker (Feb 28, 2010)
Too shy for online multiplayer? The single-player campaign is challenging enough on its own and offers hours upon hours of play. Priced at $10 for consoles (PC version coming soon), Greed Corp is easily one of the best titles found on Xbox LIVE Arcade. Of course, this is an absolute must by if you dig strategy games, though anyone can learn the basics after a couple runs through the tutorial. Ultimately, Greed Corp will be easy to learn but difficult to master.
Gamers Daily News (Mar 02, 2010)
The game is pretty cool all around. The graphics are interesting and help to keep your mind in the game. The soundtrack harkens back to the heady days of the Charleston and the first trans-atlantic crossings by a solo pilot. They weave together a universe that tells a story, a story that you want to see through to the end and the only way to do that is to keep playing. Who will stand on the last piece of land? That’s for you to decide.
Gamers' Temple, The (2010)
Greed Corp's unique mechanic of balancing the need for resources with the need to keep your empire from crumbling into oblivion makes it an interesting and engrossing little strategy game. The rules of play are simple, but mastering the game is anything but simple. It's recommended to anyone who enjoys a strategy game that actually requires a good deal of strategic thinking.
IGN (Feb 24, 2010)
If you fancy yourself a fan of either turn-based strategy games or heady board games, you'll definitely want to check out Greed Corp. The fact that you have to destroy the ground beneath your feet in order to harvest resources makes for some fascinating choices. It's designed for multiplayer and has friendly on- and offline features, but the single-player campaign is also great fun. Watching Greed Corp.'s tiles crumble into dust has been one of my favorite gaming moments of the year so far.
9lives (Mar 07, 2010)
Greed Corp heeft de uitstraling van een bordspel maar blijft perfect overeind als videogame. De game zuigt je naar binnen en laat je maar moeilijk los. De vernietigbaarheid van het speelveld zorgt ervoor dat geen enkel potje hetzelfde is en bezorgt de speler vele tactische mogelijkheden. Dat alles bij elkaar zorgt voor een game die enorm leuk is om te spelen en bovendien enorm veel waarde voor z’n geld biedt.
Cheat Code Central (2010)
Greed Corp. is an excellent, user-friendly turn-based strategy title. Both the single-player and multiplayer portions of the game are great fun and boast loads or replay value. Of course, this is a title for those in search of quick bouts of superb strategy gaming. If you're looking for drawn out, epic competitions, or if you only have the patience for popping melons with a scoped rifle, Greed Corp. is not for you. I'll be anxious to see how this is received by the gaming community at large, because Greed Corp. has the markings of a go-to strategy franchise.
MS Xbox World (2010)
Greed Corp has an expansive set of single player campaigns, custom matches against the AI, and of course, multiplayer support across Xbox Live. It's a great way to spend thirty minutes or an hour, or to get lost in fully on a day off. If you truly enjoy the gameplay, which is Greed Corp's most important and distinguishing feature, then you'll get as much as you want out of this surprisingly fun title. For just 800 Microsoft points, it's definitely worth a long look.
AceGamez (Mar 22, 2010)
Overall, Greed Corp is a highly enjoyable title, but one that needs your devotion in sticking it through a few plays before you truly appreciate it. It’s got a lot to offer, and once you get over the initial feeling of being thrown into a confusing and original playing system, you’ll feel immersed in a world full of tactics, multiplayer madness and challenging strategy that will have you coming back for more time and time again.
GamingXP (Mar 04, 2010)
„Greed Corp“ wird sicher noch so manches Mal Mittelpunkt des Geschehens sein, wenn mein Kollege, um eine Revanche fleht. Das Gameplay an sich und speziell der Mehrspieler-Modus sind sehr gelungen – Klasse!
Vandal Online (Mar 10, 2010)
Greed Corp es un sencillo título de estrategia dentro del inmenso catálogo del sistema de descargas digitales Xbox Live Arcade, pero con los suficientes detalles diferenciales como para hacerlo resaltar por encima del resto. El hecho de que toda la jugabilidad se base en la destrucción de tierras para producir recursos que nos permitan seguir destruyendo, es la principal baza que otorga originalidad y frescura al sistema de juego. Si a ello le añadimos un apartado técnico excelente y un sentido del humor jovial y, francamente, original, tenemos ante nosotros una de las mejores apuestas del catálogo en lo que al género de la estrategia por turnos se refiere.
That Gaming Site (Mar 22, 2010)
Despite a few hurdles Greed Corp provides for a great gaming experience that is both fun and addicting.
GameFocus (Mar 10, 2010)
While the focus may be on multiplayer, W!Games has put a lot of effort into the single player experience. There are plenty of levels to play through and, as you progress, the skill level changes to provide new challenges with every map. For 800 MS Points ($10), you are getting more bang for your buck here than with most titles on the market. Proof positive that Greed can be a good thing, W!Games has developed an incredibly simple, yet decidedly deep, game that’s worthy of a place in your collection.
Multiplayer.it (Apr 02, 2010)
Greed Corp non è uno strategico per novellini o per gente con poca pazienza. Malgrado le fondamenta del gioco siano abbastanza limitate e rapidamente comprensibili, lo sviluppo del titolo realizzato da W!Games rende il prodotto un impegnativo quanto gratificante continuo sforzo di attenzione e pianificazione, destinato quindi a lasciare perplessi e smarriti tutti coloro alla ricerca di un gameplay all'acqua di rose. Chi al contrario ha voglia e tempo da dedicare a Greed Corp, troverà uno dei migliori strategici disponibili su console degli ultimi tempi.
Planet Xbox 360 (2010)
So, if you are looking for a genuine challenge that might make you pull your hair out or grip that controller a lot harder than you usually do, sure, Greed Corp is for you. But if that isn’t the case, I have a feeling that controller will end up going through the TV screen a lot quicker than if you had just played some Modern Warfare 2 instead.
Digital Chumps (Mar 02, 2010)
W!Games has a fantastic turn based title on their hands that I'd recommend to casual and hardcore fans of the genre alike.
4Players.de (Mar 05, 2010)
Am Anfang war ich etwas verwirrt und skeptisch: Die Felder brechen weg? Es gibt nur ein paar Einheiten? Die vier Völker unterscheiden sich nur farblich? Und dann diese bemühte Story. Aber das charmante Artdesign im Dampfmaschinenstil hat mich doch neugierig gemacht. Und als ich diese Rundentaktik zwischen einstürzenden Hexfeldern und wolkenverhangenen Abgründen einmal verinnerlicht hatte, kam ich kaum davon los - nicht nur gegen die KI, sondern auch mit Freunden in Onlinegefechten entsteht schadenfrohes Wormsflair.
Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault) (Mar 04, 2010)
I’ve said this often but it bears repeating. We’re living in a fantastic age where digital distribution allows niche games like Greed Corp. to find an audience and flourish. The concepts behind this turn-based strategy are simple enough for most people to pick up and play (presuming they skip the maddening tutorial and just dive right in) but as the cliché goes, it takes a second to learn and a century to master. Here’s hoping a robust community builds in support as this makes for an engaging strategic pursuit. Greed is good!
Eurogamer.net (UK) (Apr 16, 2010)
Supporting up to four players at once, the game lends itself brilliantly to playing with your mates (locally or online), but is equally good fun against the computer in the hugely challenging campaign mode. A word of warning, though: the tutorial barely scratches the surface, and unless you're persistent and can deal with plenty of initial trial and error, Greed Corp will take time to appreciate. Once it clicks, though, this is a hugely absorbing and satisfying journey into pure strategy gaming.
videogamer.com (Mar 12, 2010)
Greed Corp is a fantastic addition to XBLA and the PlayStation Store; a thoughtful and charming title that puts a unique spin on the board-game strategy. While it might take a while to rewire your brain to the game's way of thinking, Greed Corp offers an experience quite unlike anything else. W! Games has demonstrated a quality of game design well beyond its experience, fusing great visuals with refreshing mechanics to create a quirky and thoroughly enjoyable little game.
Gamer.nl (Feb 26, 2010)
Op de lange duur breekt de compacte spelformule Greed Corp enigszins op. Je hebt van het begin af aan alle mogelijkheden tot je beschikking en eigenlijk alleen de maps en het aantal tegenstanders verandert. Net als bij een bordspel ben je op den duur door je strategieën heen en op dat moment moeten er eigenlijk nieuwe regels bijkomen, getuige de vele uitbreidingen die er bijvoorbeeld voor Catan of Carcassonne beschikbaar zijn. Maar voor je zover bent in Greed Corp, heb je al meer dan genoeg waar voor je geld gehad.
Game Chronicles (Apr 26, 2010)
For a game with simple mechanics set in an apocalyptic world dominated by hyper-capitalistic avarice, Greed Corp. is surprisingly fun and lighthearted. The short matches, easy-to-learn interface, and approachable price point make this game ideal for a more casual player, though more serious gamers who don’t mind clean simplicity in a game may also enjoy it thoroughly.
Worth Playing (Jul 22, 2010)
Greed Corp is a very surprising and entertaining title. The lack of different units makes the management of your army pretty simple, while the terrain deformation adds a pretty unique element to the proceedings. The game looks good, sounds fine and controls well. Most importantly, the game has an addictive quality that begs for one more match to be played just as you're finishing your current one. Strategy fans will be in for a pleasant surprise upon picking up Greed Corp.
Gamernode (Mar 03, 2010)
Greed Corp does what's important for a small turn-based strategy game: keep it simple, allow for depth.
DarkZero (Mar 13, 2010)
Greed Corp has been a welcoming surprise. While it’s not considered to be part of the ‘Xbox House Party’ line-up (probably due to being multiplatform) in many cases it deserves far more attention than those that are. With a lengthy story-mode, on and offline multiplayer and endless replay-value, for 800MSP/£7.99 it’s an absolute steal. Even in this busy period of triple-A releases, you could do a lot worse than find a free moment to check it out.
Thunderbolt Games (Mar 09, 2010)
Accompanied by smooth jazz, the game sells the gloomy atmosphere W!Games is going for quite nicely, as they seem to be holding themselves to the dreary overtones and highly industrialized themes at the center of Greed Corp.’s style. It’s a different sort of game, filling its niche fairly well. This is a surprisingly good introduction to the universe of Mistbound, even if the dynamic layers of the playing field aren’t necessarily enough to make it a better game than the German-style board games that inspired it. If you’re looking into buying Greed Corp., just be sure that you’re doing so for the right reasons; while the game’s not for everyone, players with enough patience to wade through the tutorial, however, will find an enjoyable, lengthy campaign, complimented by a promising Xbox Live mode that just doesn’t have the backing of a strong community.
GameSpot (Mar 08, 2010)
The pro-environmental message in Greed Corp is easy enough to grasp, but the inner workings of this surprisingly complex strategy game are not so easily understood. But once you figure out how to properly balance your insatiable need for money with the earth's penchant for crumbling under your money-grubbing desires, a world of destructible possibilities reveals itself. And at only 800 Microsoft points, you can be happy developer W!Games wasn't too greedy.
Game Captain (Mar 16, 2010)
Greed Corp ist ein kurzweiliger Spaß, der vor allem von seiner dynamischen Spielwelt und seiner taktischen Vielfalt lebt. Wo platziere ich meinen Buddler? Wo kommt die Waffenfabrik hin, damit sie zum einen nicht vorschnell in den Abgrund gerissen wird, zum anderen aber auch nicht vom Feind erobert wird? Wage ich einen Überraschungsangriff per Lufttransport im Rücken des Feindes? Besonders motivierend wird Greed Corp dann, wenn ich mehr als einen Gegner habe und mich auf das Vorgehen mehrerer Feinde konzentrieren muss – und das auch noch unter Zeitdruck. Wenn schließlich ein gegnerisches Feld mitsamt stattlicher Streitmacht in den Abgrund stürzt, ist die Schadenfreude groß.
Overall, Greed Corp is a good game, and one that if you give it a couple of hours, it will be a game that you can at least appreciate. It’s not for everyone, but I urge everyone to at least give it a try. If you like it, then you have found a good place to spend ten dollars. If not, there are plenty of other games that are worthy of your time right now. I just hope that developers go back to the drawing board, and if they can make a game similar to this, but for a more main stream audience, then they will have something that will truly shine, and be played by tons of people.
XboxAddict (Mar 05, 2010)
In all, Greed Corp is very different from typical strategy but a lot of fun - it feels like a really good tabletop board game and is easy to play, and is well put together. I hope it catches on with the Live community, because I really want to play it with someone else who appreciates this unique game. Download Greed Corp from Xbox Live Arcade, and see for yourself.
Game Revolution (Mar 24, 2010)
Greed Corp is probably not a title for everyone, but the value-to-cost ratio is great. For a mere 800 Microsoft points, you'll easily get 30 to 40 hours out of the campaign mode alone, and then, of course there's always "create a game" to set yourself up against the hardest opponents on your favorite maps.
Game Shark (Mar 12, 2010)
For about ten bucks, which is likely six to seven times less than a boxed Greed Corp board game would cost at retail, the game gives players a lot of value. There are four campaigns, one for each faction as well as ad hoc skirmish matches and a full multiplayer suite. Over Xbox Live or PSN, playing the game with friends is much the same as it would be over a kitchen table, but you can do it at three o’clock in the morning on your couch and in pajamas, with friends that live at the far-flung corners of the world. Add in a full range of achievements and titles as well as three AI difficulty levels and tons of maps, and it becomes a very attractive package for its price for gamers looking for more online tabletop games beyond the staple titles such as Catan or Magic: The Gathering.
Gaming Nexus (Mar 25, 2010)
An RTS/boardgame hybrid that's worth your $10, if you're into resource management. Although for the same price, you can get a new copy of Hail to the Chimp...
Games TM (Apr 15, 2010)
(...) Since like any actual board game, head-to-head play is where it's at. And here it shines, the 60-second time limit growing more daunting and restrictive as your responsibilities grow and each game plays out just differently enough to hold interest. This slight variety might harm Greed Corp in the long run, but for now we'll happily sink another few hours into the dark side of capitalism.
Frictionless Insight (Mar 08, 2010)
Greed Corp could have been brilliant. It's certainly fun, and worth the price of admission, but a few simple changes could turn it into something truly amazing.
Console Monster (Mar 19, 2010)
Nevertheless, the major criticism of Greed Corp players will experience is the extremely steep learning curve. Whilst the game does feature a tutorial, it isn’t particularly effective, especially when players come to struggle through the game’s campaign, even as early on as the first level. Nonetheless, if players are willing to dedicate some time to the title and adapt to the game’s slightly-unforgiving gameplay, the reward is a thoroughly entertaining Xbox Live Arcade title.
GamePro (Australia) (Mar 04, 2010)
Everest-style difficulty curve aside, Greed Corp is a pretty game with a great soundtrack that is also a throwback to pre-electronic gaming. Nothing about this game is innovative or outright exciting, but anyone who remembers (or still plays) classic board games will get a hell of a kick out of this.
HonestGamers (Staff reviews only) (Mar 20, 2010)
For the most part, this is a good game. It has its share of flaws, but you should find it above average overall.
Extreme Gamer (Mar 12, 2010)
‘Greed Corp.’ is a very polished, affordable strategy title sporting a clever environment gameplay aspect. Still, its unforgiving difficulty creates a learning curve that will scare even the hardiest away.
RealGamer (Mar 16, 2010)
Overall, Greed Corp offers an intriguing new twist to strategy gaming, putting you under just a little more pressure when considering your moves – it won’t hold your attention for long but while it does, it will keep you quite entertained. Personally, I like strategy games that require a great deal of thought and planning with each move – Greed Corp doesn’t offer much in the way of actions during the game and therefore you find yourself going through the same routine. As to whether the game justifies its price tag, that’s another question. I think a lower price range would have been a little fairer and by paying this you may feel a little hard done by! It will be interesting to see where they take this new, young franchise with potential to next and what type of game is to follow.
Gamer Limit (Mar 22, 2010)
Greed Corp nobly attempts to simplify the genre, but takes it a few steps too far. I hear the game is supposed to be the first part of a series, so I'm definitely interested in seeing how the next one is fine-tuned...provided it's a turn-based strategy game this time around.
