    Don't hesitate to try this one!
  2. To put those complaints into perspective, it'll take you 40-plus hours to finish the story mode. Longer if you try to complete all of the optional badlands missions. That's 40-plus hours worth of awesome battles and addictive customizing.
  3. Only kids will likely get much out of the game's storyline, but anyone who enjoys a good turn-based strategy-RPG will find plenty to like about this game.
  4. The card subsystem in Drone Tactics is interesting and unique, and it helps set the title apart from other similar games.

    Drone Tactics may look like Advance Wars with giant mechanical bugs and an absurd plot, but it's challenging and fun. Just watch out for those damn centipedes.

Sure, the giant bugs thing is kind of goofy, but the tactics gameplay is light and fun, for the most part. Not anywhere near the top of the "tactics" genre, but worth playing if you've played the rest of the crop. Full Review »
