What an interesting tactical RTS we got here. The gameplay itself is rather simple, but very fun and addictive. There’s loads of aliens and buckets upon buckets of blood to be spilled.

The game picks up rather quickly, making use of a quick, but helpful tutorial. The game does get rather difficult at times (and I believe this happened to me way too early, at least for someone of my skill level). The game has all of the basics you’d expect from an RTS, including the upgrade system, building system, etc. You’ll spend most of your time, however, managing your small group of soldiers (the game’s controls are very slick in this regard, no complaints there).

Infested Planet easily earns my recommendation. It nails just about all of the RTS aspects expected of a game from the genre and does so in its own unique way.
