    A thought provoking and fast-paced strategy game, murdering millions with the flick of a finger in First Strike will make you laugh and cry.

    It plays like a heavily modernized Missile Command. But be aware. That this ain’t a fire-and-forget orgy for finger artists but a challenging game where you have to make decisions and try to find a balance between nuclear defensive and offensive measures.

    War, what is good for? Well, it makes for an entertaining real-time strategy game at least.

    First Strike is an exceptionally well-presented real-time strategy game only marred by a weak tutorial and a tendency for over micromanagement. I enjoyed the surprising depth in its gameplay and its message for humankind, which will linger with you well after you’ve fired off your last missile. [Episode 6, July 2014]

    First Strike is a fairly simple strategy game, but its fast-paced games and demands for smart thinking yield challenges on all difficulties.

    First Strike looks like an old school Wargame, but plays like a frenetically "hit the gopher" arcade game.
