You are part of an elite squad who freeze time to move near cover and get shot in the head.

I guess they didn't play their own game, because there are obvious flaws. This would have been more fun if they got rid of the whole moving around like an RPG. Like the old X-COM ga-- oh wait, the old games are just better. Why was this game made?

A fauldschool resource game that would have made for a fine free Flash game, but is instead for-pay.

Fair.

The Koreans invade the United States, and you are a freedom fighter who hides behind invulnerable cover in an on-rails playable cutscene.

alt-F4 as soon as I was placed in a "home base" which forced me to RP-walk everywhere. Inexcusable.

Nerd.

In a dystopic future akin to Brave New World - (1932 book), by Aldous Huxley, everyone is lost in a virtual reality, playing a game to take control of the world's largest corporation.

This movie is parasitic to the childhoods of old men and permanent-children. It's worth a watch if you're over 40, otherwise it'll be a fairly confusing mess of references.

A semi-roguelike tower defence-ish game.

Utterly impossible. Doesn't make a lick of sense. Unlimited waves of stuff, for some reason. Can't build enough, the resource limitations are obscene.

Well-polished, and with solid mechanics, this is recommended for people who would, at a glance, like this sort of brawler. Ultimately, it's like Diablo 3. While a clone in many ways, it's quite a bit more fun and simple, with subtle extras that make it at least visually unique.

This would be great good, if it were free. It's just not for me, and I think my tastes have been changing lately.

Slash a things and miss a lot. Get hit a lot. Uninstall.

What a shit fighting system. With a fundamental flaw as glaring as this, there's no way in hell I'll play this.
