| The Best Strategy Game I've Ever Played
Well, that's not really fair considering I haven't played very many strategy games and in fact don't really like them. But damn is this game good. The combat is intense and absolutely exilerating. This game has the best damn tutorial mission ever, perfectly setting up the atmosphere. I knew instantly that I would love the game, and I do. The base area is simple but perfect, challenging but not a chore. Perhaps my favorite part of this game is that you're able to generate characters and the personality of your squad on your own. This game does however have to big flaws. First of all, even playing on easy, after the first in game month or two the game gets extremely difficult quickly. You'll find yourself loosing squad members left and right and it's too difficult to keep all of the countries funding you. The other flaw is that since the maps aren't procedurally generated, your bound to run into the same maps eventually, especially considering the games replay value. That being said, this game is insanely enjoyable and is personally one of my favorite games of all time. A 9.6/10, easily a 9 just for the atmosphere alone.
