    Tense, dynamic, relentless. Even though the campaigns lack a solid narrative this is a refreshingly different real time tactic game that delivers adrenaline by the bucket.

    There are plenty of missing features that may or may not be coming at a later date, but take it for what it is for the time being – a flawed experience, but one that's hugely rewarding when everything goes just right.

    Sets the new standard for tactical shooters. It can be fast paced action or careful planned tactics, you have a sizeable range of weapons to choose (some you need to unlock which represents the Police Dept's budgets). It's up to you to kick down doors to arrest parole violators, respond to a shootout at a shopping centre, rescue VIPs from embassies, defuse bombs, use stealth tactics and silenced weapons.... the list just goes on and on. The modding ability is extremely able to use, you can easily create a new mod, new maps, etc. in a few minutes. That is of course if the random mission generator is not enough for you.

    Highly recommended - giving 10/10 for Alpha and 10/10 for Release.

    A game put together with a lot of love and attention to detail. Addictive and rewarding, excellent audio and music, and most importantly, a lot of fun. Expand

    IF you liked Frozen Synapse on Steam: You will LOVE this.

    IF you are a tactical strategy fan that like to take time to think out your next
    move: YOU WILL LOVE THIS

    IF you love to carefully plan and strategise your next move : YOU WILL LOVE THIS

    IF you are like me (an old PC gamer) and remember the old SWAT and Rainbow 6 games where you planed the move of your soldier buddies before pressing play and see the action unfold.

    YOU WILL LOVE THIS !!!!!!

    No i am not kidding, this is a dream come true for me and for all other strategy lovers out there.

    DO NOT MISS THIS !! This is a PURE hidden gem 2014.

    I just wanna start by saying this game is in alpha so I'm not judging features it could have as it still has a lot to be added and is not a finished product.

    Doorkickers is a sort of return to the tactical genre which of late has essentially disappeared. It is fast paced but with the nifty planning mode which can be activated at any time you can develop a perfect tactical idea to maximize your chances of success. It's top down and you control anywhere from 1 to 6 men depending on the level.(In most levels you can chose the amount of soldiers) All of the levels have a good variety from a suburban house with tight rooms and corners to areas with less buildings but lots of large open area perfect for mauling your team. The ai is smart and if you plan badly can easily beat you even in a 1v1. There are bugs of course ad occasionally some odd instances of enemys and friendlys alike taking multiple shots and not dying but again it's in alpha and has a long way to go. THey are also adding a mission generator, campaign, new gametypes, and multi level buildings which of couse when these ll come will make this game hopefully amazing. THat pretty much covers the basics of the game and if you really want a better feel for it watch some gameplay videos and see what you think. Also since their indie devs they're really active and friendly to people on the steam forums and the official forums which is a nice touch instead of listening to some copy and pasted message from a corporate juggernaut. Definetly worth a solid 9 or 9.5 and when they add more features and iron out bugs this game has the potential of truly being one of the best games out there.

    Very good. A lot of possibilities, even if some are miss (need a little more weapons, and tactical actions). Multiplayer is non-existent too, it's very disappointing. But the solo is huge ! A hundred of unique missions plus a mission generator, and a complete editor to do it yourself. 3 campaigns, cool but not enough taking, poor scenario but attaching customizable team of 10 SWAT. I love it !

    It fell me missing again the perfect SWAT series, mainly the third and the fourth... Try them if you can, on GOG you can vote for in the wishlist. :)

    The really great game. Superb tactical simulation of CQB operations, various approach to every mission. many missions, and combination of "tangos". Graphics is simply but accurate. Expand

    Sorry I am not impressed. The AI is really flunky. Flash-bang/Breaching charges get ignored. Highly trained swat/insertion teams get crushed by street thugs. Having a fully trained officer with weapons at the ready and the element of surprise gets gunned down 8 times out of 10. I am sorry NOT impressed at all. If you really want this game wait till it's fully released but as of right now it failed to live up to expectations Expand
