    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.

    The controls on the PC are clunky, there's only 16 levels, and the Dev will straight yell at you in the Steam Forums. It's classic Derek SmartThe controls on the PC are clunky, there's only 16 levels, and the Dev will straight yell at you in the Steam Forums. It's classic Derek Smart - a good idea underbaked, with confusing controls (at least on PC) and a ridiculous 25 dollar price tag (WAY more than the android release.)

    If you miss Mass Effect's graphics, but want them bluer, and have 25$ to spend on a 5$ game, LODT-TA is your Huckleberry, but for most of us it's not going to satisfy (for that price.) I'll give it a four to be fair, but note that it's a hard four at this point, not a dick rating.

    It deserves the 4.

Graphics are sub-par, playability is poor, sounds servicable but clearly not what we can expect in 2015 (would have been okay in 2005).
    Also developper, Derek Smart, banned me on Steam (it looks like that happened to many) for giving a bad but polite review. I then check on internet the guy background and oh dear... what a douche he is. Test it if you want, at least you will more appreciate any other mobile game sold half that price. Do not encourage DS to continue releasing such crap!

    The controls are the biggest giveaway of this being a port from a mobile game, the click to select a unit has such a huge hit box for fingersThe controls are the biggest giveaway of this being a port from a mobile game, the click to select a unit has such a huge hit box for fingers that you often select the wrong unit. There's no volume control and you can click through the background of menus making you hit something you don't want. Also the game uses a radial menu that screams touchscreen. You guys often push each other out of cover and shoot through walls. The graphics are good for a mobile game but that doesn't make up for the lack of everything else. Lack of missions, sounds, variety. They are asking 5 times the price for the PC version with no added content. Don't waste your money of this buggy port. There are far more rewarding tactic games out there. Expand

    You should consider buying anything else before checking out this game.
