    A short and fun game that I felt was paced well and can be picked up even when you only have a few minutes to spare before heading out to do something else. This in turn is a good thing because the difficulty spikes in the game In some ways this was a great idea because sometimes having to spend 30-50 minutes on a level to only fail in the last few minutes and then need to restart the level would not be fun.

    Line of Defense Tactics includes an entertaining and in-depth strategy experience, yet doesn't provide a great introduction to the game's universe with a narrative that isn't compelling or interesting. Even with some of the later levels straying into frustrating territory, much of the game provides a worthwhile and challenging gameplay experience that is sure to please strategy enthusiasts. While not perfect, Line of Defense Tactics is a solid entry in the squad-based strategy genre.

    This is a quite weak experience, and needs to be polished and improved if it wants to become an option among so many rivals.

    It’s not a particularly good advert for the brand, or the MMO. It’s way too pricey for what it is, and it’s got very little replayability. Coupled with the fact that there are plenty of games on tablet that do what it’s trying to do so so much better (The tablet port of XCOM, for example) that, really, this looks incredibly amateurish by comparison.

    If you’re looking for a squad based strategy game on PC, XCOM: Enemy Unknown is currently priced just $5 more than Line of Defense Tactics, and that would be a much smarter and more enjoyable way to spend your time and money.

    I hated Line of Defense Tactics: Tactical Advantage, so its price tag of twenty five dollars is almost as baffling as the game’s quality itself.

    A key element will the the outfitting of your team before each mission to better prepare them to what's coming and to better suit your gameplay.

    Overall a fun game with minutes to get used to the controls and different ways to play each level.

    An awkward port of what would otherwise have been a decent game.
    The graphics are middle of the range, neither overwhelmingly good or bad, they just get the job done.
    The sound brings to mind games like Dark Reign or some of the earlier Command and Conquer games - nice, but it won't blow your socks off.
    The control interface for the PC version is awkward at best, you will often find yourself frantically clicking to cancel commands you had just accidentally issued until you have wasted at least a couple of hours recovering from frustratingly failed missions.

    Bad game backed up by nasty lead developer who is a well known troll and kind of the Uwe Boll of the games industry.

    Just go and take a look at their steam forum... They lock/delete posts and BAN users from it where they are complaining about the game, or saying bugs need to be fixed. That attitude speaks volumes and by itself warrants a low score.

    I went countless hours through empty fields and servers. There are virtually no other players arround.
    Technically this game is an embarrassment. If it was 5 dollar shovelware I wouldn't mind. I don't know if the developers are actually serious about this.

    This game is a very bad port of a mobile game.

    Gameplay is very touch oriented, graphics feels like previous ipad generation, textures of very low quality, a lot of small bugs like shooting throw walls and buggy AI. You have no stop time function, which kills the gameplay, because interface is too sloopy to controll, too many readial menus, drag and drop system.

    Avoid this game at all costs.
