Horrible

Was really looking forward to this

Been looking forward to this title for a while and honestly i did enjoy it for the first 3 hours or so. It was a little tough with having to manage panic levels and what not when picking your areas of operation, but still gameplay was fun. 3 hours in my squad of nearly maxed out veterans got wiped out in 2 turns (group of heavy ground units spawned in to an area I had cleared). The units in this game are perma dead when they go. No heals, No revives. Game did not provide enough funds to perform all the upgrades it asked for and build a more fleshed out group barrack. Cannot pick classes at first so any new units you buy are basic recruits and are given classes randomly (from what i can tell) so after that event I was left with useless troops that got chewed appart in the next mission. Haven't wanted to rage quit a game in a long time, but this made me do it.

I must admit I'm not really into strategy games as much as shooters, Action and sports games but this game was incredible, I loved how you can build up your soldiers with upgrades and weapons and how the research you do and facilities you build interact with the gameplay so well, so lets get down to it Graphics solid, Sound good, Controls smooth, and Gameplay awesome I gave this game a 9/10 I highly recommend you playing this even if you're not into strategy games because you'll be pleasantly surprised the only suggestion I have for the next one is to allow a little more free movement and some more action to it but it still was a great play!
