Game Profile

Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. is a new strategy game for Nintendo 3DS and 2DS from Intelligent Systems, known for the Fire Emblem and Advance Wars series. The game has a unique atmosphere with a steampunk setting and comic book-style graphics.

The player selects four members from a team of agents, each with their own unique personalities – led by the 16th president of the United States of America, Abraham Lincoln – to fight back against aliens invading the planet.

While the combat is turn-based, it takes place with a third-person view, giving this strategy game the immersive feel of a third-person shooter. Online multiplayer and matches against other players add to the fun.

Sneaky strategy

Capitalism has some simple rules, one of which is to balance demand with strategy; if something's rare then you can get more money for it, or use it to promote other goods.

I'm a fan of the Advance Wars series (well, up to and including Dual Strike), so this might be one for me to watch and, eventually, play.

Didn't quite know what to think of this when I first heard of it, but after playing the demo, I'm thinking this is going to be a day one purchase for me.

I preordered it, and am through the first 4 chapters. The game is fantastic, if you liked the demo at all, you'll enjoy this game. I'm curious if there's more characters, and I'm really eager to try out the Fire Emblem amiibo support. Really happy with this game. I think it's at least an 8/10 if not close to a 9.
