Tldr: Been since Natural Selection 2 on PC Steam that I have waited to see FPSRTS done well. Here it is, a tower defense FPS, clearly Star Craft/Starship Troopers inspired. Like tower defense? RTS? High scores and or coop? Buy it. Graphics are nice for a WIP and coming along well. They went for a more realistic look vs comicy and as such a lot of open environments take a nose dive in detail. I hope the devs take a look at Crashlands and Star Wars Galaxies Edge to see how this can be improved! But so good so far. Sound is very nice here and it sounds rewarding to shoot bugs and money they sometimes drop. Gameplay is great with my only gripe being unlocks behind coop maps though it is a novel feature and hope for more unlocks in future, especially from the campaign maps. Replayability is high. 4 difficulties and a leaderboard per map, with custom difficulty for fun. 4 player coop, pvp, and a simple yet still wip map editor you can also use in coop. I wont list issues or glitches as I do that in discord and the devs are very responsive. However I will say if you have back or shoulder issues as I do, you may need a few days away from time to time due to the intense movement required at some times! Conclusion, if you enjoy FPSRTS games this is a must buy, and the devs are very active in discord. This is a game I hope makes it to the Oculus store, it is amazing. My only gripe is the generic placeholder cockpit loading screen, I just hate it :(! I feel like i have seen it somewhere before too.. An example: put a black screen with a loading bar and one of the weaker bug enemies in black and white walking on the top left of the bar in place. Other than that, I will live forever.
