  1. Laser Squad Nemesis, with its addictive nature, fast paced player tactics, and an ever expanding community, is the turn-based strategy title any gamer should have installed on their PC. And with a price tag of 25.00 for 6 months offering unrestricted gaming or a downloadable trial how can you go wrong.
  2. If the graphics and audio were sharper, this could have been an editor's choice, it's that fun. But given that it is a value-priced game, the spit and polish isn't there, too bad though, this game is addictive.
  3. For those who love strategy but want it more on the go this game is perfect for you.

    An interesting, enjoyable game. Missing third race and lack of game options hurt score.
  5. The tactical battles definitely capture the spirit of X-COM, but the whole package doesn't come together in quite the same way.
  6. If you don't mind enduring the brutal difficulty curve, you'll find for your trouble quite a wellspring of turn-based strategy.
  7. It takes a very methodical and patient strategy gamer to appreciate Laser Squad Nemesis.
  8. You should only buy Laser Squad Nemesis if you’re looking for multiplayer skirmishes.
  9. If you play Minesweeper for hours on end, you’re not likely to be disappointed by this tepid turn-based strategy game. However, the rest of us will probably be disappointed by the lack of compelling gameplay and the absolutely sterile feel to the game.

    Whether you challenge specific favorite opponents or get a random one through the game's matching service, you'll be presented with one of the best squad-level strategy games out there... and you'll be constantly checking your email for the arrival of the next turn.

    What it lacks in flash, it delivers in sheer strategic brilliance. [June 2005, p.56]

    Online you will receive new updates, be able to compete in various tournaments and have your score posted for the world to see - that is if the world finds out about Laser Squad Nemesis.
  13. Unfortunately, in the case of Laser Squad Nemesis, the developers inexplicably chose to turn their back on the 21st century in regards to its online componant, a step backwards that hobbles what might have otherwise been a compelling title.

    It has the same kind of addictive magic, suspense, and excitement that the X-Com games had, with the bonus of devious human minds in place of stilted A.I. [June 2003, p.88]
  15. What redeems LSN from being an exercise in tedium is that the touch of a master’s hand can be felt in almost every brushstroke.

    Don't start playing this game if you are supposed to be doing anything important in Real-Life. You won't get round to it. I promise.
