    Good graphic and decent sound. Impressive number of enemies, maybe too many! The game is really frustrating and there no time to think about tactics. AI is very basic too.

    The net has been very unjust to this game... in its way, its amazing. Graphic isnt that bad, and surely having LOTS of bugs around you gave the same impression of watching the movie. Sound makes his job... nothing exceptional, ok, but neither orrible. Gameplay is very fun... sure, enemies have no IA. They are bugs, remember? This is all about smashing tons and tons of bugs, wave after The net has been very unjust to this game... in its way, its amazing.

I enjoyed ST... it really goes on smoothly: think at it like a casual game, only an FPS. If you have a powerfull enough pc and you play it at easy settings (very important this: only on easy the npc stays alive and give the felling of being part o a team), you'll enjoy it... and maybe youll replay it more than some FPS-masterpiece that request you to be focused all the time. I surely did it Expand

  1. It is an exercise in immense frustration and painful tedium. When it works, and this feels a stupid sentence at this point, it does manifest the correct semiotic indicators of first-person shooting. You are mowing down literally hundreds of baddies with big metal guns. But that's it. And it isn't all that much.

    Technically, the large swarms of bugs are impressive, but otherwise the game looks dated and sounds weak. The fun comes mainly from the game's respect of its source material. The boss fights are incredibly tedious, though. [Dec 2005]
  3. Starship Troopers has little dedication to faithfully re-creating the things that made the film unique, and it's a pretty lousy and technically deficient shooter to boot.
