    Perhaps multiplayer is fun, but single-player is an exercise in frustration. The gap between Easy and Medium is too wide, making neither difficulty worthwhile. On Easy you breeze through the enemy, on Medium they're an unstoppable horde whose morale refuses to go down once Officers show up. And good luck killing those when they hide in a building behind hordes of peons. Single-player wouldPerhaps multiplayer is fun, but single-player is an exercise in frustration.

Single-player would work if the game gave you a decent income and toned down the amount of enemy soldiers with rocket-launchers. OrcsMustDie and Sanctum do the TD/FPS thing better. Expand

    Great concept ruined by a bad engine. The graphics often feel "zoomed out" making it hard to aim with many weapons. Although the devs have released some solid updates since launch (better graphics options, steam cheevos, etc.), there is a lack of diversity in maps. Gameplay is similar to Killing Floor but with defensive structures you can build. However, most of the maps have 2 main entryGreat concept ruined by a bad engine.

However, most of the maps have 2 main entry points to your base plus one underground/through buildings entrance in the back making the maps feel repetitive. If you have some friends who are interested there's a 4 pack available. It's a nice diversion with friends but don't expect to spend more than 1-2 hours on it at a time because of frustrating technical shortcomings and boring maps. Expand

  1. If you can get a group of people together you know to play with, I really do think this game is worth the $25 they're selling it for. It's not perfect, but the first commercial game from an indie developer rarely is. Isotx has shown a ton of promise, and is definitely a company to be looking out for in the future.
  2. Nice idea poorly executed - and still it’s fun. Iron Grip is a nice timekiller that doesn't stand a chance against other games of the genre.

    Iron Grip: Warlord simply tries to do way too much in the game without fully succeeding at anything in particular.
