    Stellar Forces's review

    Advanced, highly-detailed multiplayer turn-based strategy in space

    • Tactical gamers love it
    • Highly detailed
    • Rather inaccessible for newbies

    "You may have tactics, sir, but have you tact?"

    I apologize in advance for my review of Stellar Forces. It's a hyper-detailed tactical game, full of units and strategies and, um, tactics, and it's definitely in space, and there are pixels, and... oh, who am I kidding, it's just not my kind of game at all.

    Let me give you the facts: it's an online multiplayer turn-based strategy game, wherein the goal is to defeat your opponents in any of 90 total missions, each with their own challenging layout. Either join a game that's already started or begin your own and await competition. Equip your team using the points at your disposal (one assumes you'll have more as you gain experience). Then, take turns moving, attacking, and defending til someone falls.

    Here's a few namedrops: if you enjoyed Laser Squad Nemesis, XCom, or Space Hulk, then you're gonna love this one too. It's totally free; no hidden IAPs or anything like that.

    I suppose what I'd ask for is a little more accessibility for those unfamiliar with the genre, but I have a feeling that very obfuscation is what makes it so appealing to a certain audience. Users tend to love it. If you love tactical games, listen to them, not me.

    I can't believe this asynchronous multiplayer game has been around so long and I only just found it. Great concept! Very well executed. Highly recommend giving this a try.

    While it does have a learning curve, once you bypass that learning curve, it becomes smooth sailing in awesome tactical squad based gameplay. The tense start where you have to play the guessing game of where your opponent is followed by the tense 'do I use nerve gas or just go guns blazing' decisions are awesome. It can at times be slow paced, but then everything becomes one decision decides your
