  • Summary: Starship Troopers introduces a terrifying assortment of enemy bugs for you to destroy, with an impressive range of weapons at your disposal, from the classic M2 Morita Rifle through to the infamous nuke launcher. Over 300 of your arachnid foe's can be tackled on screen at any given time. This has to be played to be believed! Become totally immersed in immense bug-blasting battles in both famous action-packed scenes from the movie and never-before-experienced settings and stories from the Starship Troopers universe.

  1. The sheer intensity of the firefights in this game makes it worth the money, and given that it’s relatively inexpensive to pick up (you’re looking at a $30-$40 dent in your wallet), it’s worth the majority of that money.
  2. Starship Troopers is a game that underscores the principal of diminishing returns which means the more you play it, the less you'll like it. If you must, enjoy it in small doses.
  3. The cut-scenes add a nice touch to the storyline, and the nearly limitless number of enemy bugs; matched with their hard armor and aggressive behavior defiantly keep the game, if nothing else, interesting.

    At least the audio captures a bit of the enjoyably cornball feel of the film. The bugs and guns don't make much of an impression, but troops utter intentionally cheesy lines like, "I'm so bad I scare myself!"
  5. 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.
  6. This videogame is a soulless, shambling zombie wreck. It is rife with bad graphics, AI, gameplay, voicework, plot (if it can even be said to have a plot), and weapons.
  7. In lieu of interesting situations, tactics, thrills, or simple variety, Starship Troopers coughs up a big greasy hairball of run-right-at-you enemies that never stop coming. [Mar 2006, p.55]
