    Iron Sky Invasion creates a trashy, funny atmosphere, like the film does. However, it has a simple and slow gameplay with really boring missions. Maybe there are some few Iron Sky fans, who like the game, but if you like complex, tactical space battles, Iron Sky Invasion is not the right game for you.

    Mediocre adaptation of a mediocre movie gives you exactly what you’d expect – stereotypical gameplay and zero fresh ideas. [Jan 2013]

    Iron Sky: Invasion is a space simulation game with cool and fun gameplay, strongly affected by a lack of technical deficiencies and a very repetitive game structure.

    With better graphics, the addition of multiplayer and a less bland and soporific gameplay, Iron Sky: Invasion deserved a full sufficiency.

    Iron Sky: Invasion isn't a bad game. There is a chance, that some fans of space flights and fights will enjoy it. But you need to remember, that it's a simple game that looks more like a complex indie game and if not for the movie tie-in, no one would have heard about it. The politics plays no part in the gameplay, the fights are slow and have a bad difficulty balance. A good idea is not enough to make an interesting game.

    Invasion shows how a fast, properly executed gameplay can be turned into a tedious monstrosity. [CD-Action 02/2013, p.68]

    The Topware game is too far away from an enjoyable space simulator.

    Iron Sky: Invasion takes off in an interesting fashion but soon reveals itself as a dull experience. Even fans of arcade shooters could find it too repetitive to play it until the very end.

    I really like iron sky and can watch it over and over mainly because Julia Dietze is sexy plus the game may be cartoonish its very addictive and enjoyable because your constantly killing people and upgrading your ships and the transmissions add more storyline Julia in the transmissions :D Full Review »

    its so different its amazing. I love how the story is nuts. It does not tailor to the needs of gamers like the huge games do. It makes you think and solve a problem when playing through a mission. its defiantly something different from the usual mass produced major games these days. Full Review »

    I couldn't initially figure why I was helping Julia Dietze character a Nazi escape from the earth and go back to the moon, but watching the film kind helped with that plot hole. Pure non stop action and trashing spaces nazis from the moon what more could you want, hey? Full Review »
