Huh, visually it looks kinda crappy compared to the other 3DS third-party games. Honestly, it looks like it belongs on the original DS.



ExploderReviews said:

Im not so sure. I can definitely tell that they got rid of the blockyness, its just that top down strategies tend to look like this.




Its meant to be a strategy game I believe. Odd choice for a 3DS title - especially considering shooters like the Resident Evil series is looking to make its mark on the console.

I'll be getting it because it's made by the dudes that did X-com. Those guys know TBS games
I just pray for some kind of online or good support for this one so I don't beat it and leave it



DarkKirby said:

Don't mean to be mean, but this seems to obviously be for the original DS, ported to the 3DS.



tovare said:

Excellent game. Reminds me of a mix between Advance Wars with some RPG-style character buildings. (The 3D gives additional depth to the terrain and seperates makes the status messages and such float above the playfield ... not critical to play, but I like it)



Boshar said:

I have this game and its the best game currently available on the 3DS. I love games like Jagged Edge an X-Com and this plays like a streamlined version of those games. The 3D helps to judge the lay of the land.

3D is not necessary but it looks so much better in 3D I rarely switch to 2D these games look great in 3D even if the gameplay does not need it.




This game is awesome, and with a HUGE amount of content. Online multiplayer would have been a nice touch, and maybe a game mode centered around the Zombie survival side-mission would also have been cool.

This game can be picked up for £15 now in the UK!
