    Don't hesitate to try this one!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Adult players may find the story a tad on the horrendous side, but Drone Tactics easily holds its own in the strategy and gameplay departments.
  5. A solid title with a lot of shine on the core gameplay. Anyone looking for something new in the genre should give this a test run.
  6. It's definitely a superior example of turn-based strategy, and certainly the best insect-based example of the genre. And, in a slightly tenuous attempt to tie the end of this review back in to our opening trivia, it's definitely more fun than counting to 10 quintillion.
  7. Genre fans won't find much challenge here but it's diverting enough while it lasts. [Aug 2008, p.68]

    Played a few hours so far, and it comes across as a somewhat sillier version of Advance Wars. 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. Expand
