military strategy game with lots of potential and managed to do most of the things right too.
engrossing! -every time its a new experience. even though the maps are (seem to be) small there are many variables that can provide great replaybility. and after a few minutes you'll WANT to master every map or try it with different loadout or different classes in your squad or just turn up the difficulty level/perma death.
music- not many tracks but enough to create that sense of urgency and tension.
perma death- level up a soldier to level 15+ and then see him die hurts a lot.
progression- unlike many other games where level progession is usually just about higher number in stats, here you can see the difference between leveled squad member and a rookie. devs have done good job but*(see cons)
difficulty spikes- play a map 15 times with perfect strategy - spike the difficulty and see your team getting hammered! the AI literally becomes stupid (like wont shoot while moving when the enemy is strolling right in front of them, their range shortens, enemy AI become bullet sponges even when they have no armor and snipers just become invincible unless you are 4-5 paces away) every now and then you feel that enemy sucker punched you below the belt.
absolutely no in-game help- there is one kinda useless tutorial. it teaches only the basic movements. there is no ingame notifications (even about features like market place, upgrading gear etc.) i saw the market 1st time i started the game after that the game never offered/mentioned that i can visit the market place and buy stuff in between maps(and game sucked me in so much that i completely forgot about it). i played 1st four maps(repeated a few times too) and when i came back to main menu i saw the marketplace. another example- i bought a sniper rifle (probably one of the costliest gun) and had no idea how to properly use it(no tutorial). when my 2 snipers died i decided to go back to assault rifle but couldn't sell the sniper :/ really disappointed coz snipers(enemy snipers too) are awesome in this game if used properly. yet another eg. i bought 4 suppressors and 2 different guns(2 each) only to realise that one gun model doesn't support silencer & it wasn't mentioned on the gun's profile page :( which is bad coz money is hard to get in this game AND IT IS VERY IMPORTANT!
no lone-wolf mode- every time a squad member dies the game forces you to go to squad menu(in main menu) to choose a replacement. only way to play lone wolf is to keep giving 'hold' command to rest 3 soldiers which is time consuming.
2nd-tier perks - they just come wayyyyyy tooo late. you get them when you are rank 30 :( and reaching rank 30 is really time consuming. i have just one guy at level 17 and now the progress is really slow.only way to level him fast is to make him kill max. enemy which means putting him at high risk and sooner or later the enemy sucker punch them.(i have lost 2 level 15 guys already)
inconsistant point awarding ?!- i am not 100% sure about it but i don't understand how points are awarded after each mission. and the difference here is not of 50-100 points.
Overall i would recommend this game to every one who loves strategy military games. if you liked xcom or older rainbow 6 games pls give it a go.
