  1. An excellent turn-based combat game. It's deceptively simple and fast-paced. The harvesters and destructible ground are really good ideas. [Apr 2010]
  2. Greed Corp is a simple strategy game within the huge Xbox Live Arcade portfolio, but it has enough differentiating details to stand out above the rest.

    Do not be fooled by the seemingly simple mechanics, this game is hardcore turn based strategy at its finest and even gaming veterans will have a hard time mastering it. Definitely a must buy if you like the genre, considering the low price tag.
  4. Supporting up to four players at once, the game lends itself brilliantly to playing with your mates (locally or online), but is equally good fun against the computer in the hugely challenging campaign mode.
  5. Its clever use of environmental destruction creates a faster paced game while its light feature set cuts down the steep learning curve the genre can be known for. Greed Corp. puts strategy first, delivering a game that fits the venerable bill of easy to learn but hard to master.
  6. A thoughtful and charming title that puts a unique spin on the board-game strategy. While it might take a while to rewire your brain to the game's way of thinking, Greed Corp offers an experience quite unlike anything else.
  7. The compact, well working mechanism and focused gameplay of Greed Corp makes this a perfect offer for gamers who aren't looking for another turn-based strategy game using Advance Wars or Final Fantasy Tactics as blueprint. A large campaign and more than enough maps keep you occupied for a long time.
  8. Greed Corp is a wonderful little title which is highly addictive and quite original in its style of play. It is a tricky game to start with, however if you stick with it then you will begin to appreciate what a great little game it is.
  9. The game is incredibly fun, and matches will be different with each replay, even if you are playing against the computer.
  10. This slow-starting strategy game is deliciously destructible once you learn the ropes.
  11. One of the more intriguing strategy titles available on PSN. [May 2010, p.96]
  12. Greed Corp does what's important for a small turn-based strategy game: keep it simple, allow for depth.
  13. Greed Corp has been a welcoming surprise.

    A solid strategy game, both online and off. [Issue#191, p.93]
  15. For about ten bucks, which is likely six to seven times less than a boxed Greed Corp board game would cost at retail, the game gives players a lot of value.
  16. An innovative strategy game. [May 2010, p.109]
  17. Greed Corp is the PSN-version of the strategy board game that never was. Although its game mechanics is both simple enough to learn fast and complex enough to make even the AI tough opponents – it doesn’t offer enough variety to make it “that great strategy game” I just have to keep on playing.
  18. 'Greed Corp.' is a very polished, affordable strategy title sporting a clever environment gameplay aspect. Still, its unforgiving difficulty creates a learning curve that will scare even the hardiest away.
  19. Overall, Greed Corp offers an intriguing new twist to strategy gaming, putting you under just a little more pressure when considering your moves – it won't hold your attention for long but while it does, it will keep you quite entertained.

    Stellar game. The strategy is not as hard to grasp in this game as some reviewers make it out to be. I played the tutorial once, first levelStellar game. The strategy is not as hard to grasp in this game as some reviewers make it out to be. I played the tutorial once, first level twice and had it figured out. It's actually really simple when you get it. It's a great strategy game that makes you really have to time when you attack vs when you prepare for battle. Timing is everything in this game. Expand too fast and you get crushed. I love that the timer is at 1 minute. Too many people over think their moves and take FOREVER. This game makes you be decisive and quick...in a good way.

    I'm not sure how this game scored so high, with some really big problems in gameplay. The biggest of which is the timer, which you CANNOT turnI'm not sure how this game scored so high, with some really big problems in gameplay. The biggest of which is the timer, which you CANNOT turn off as an option, in either single or multiplayer mode. Another important problem is that certain important moves can be really screwed up by their default setting, such as carriers defaulting to carrying 1 guy instead of your whole crew. This will inevitably happen towards the end of the game, causing you to lose the whole level and having to start from scratch. The last problem, is that the tutorial and intro to the game is simply hard to grasp. It took my several plays of the first stage after the tutorial, at which point I had forgotten it, to honestly grasp the strategies of the game. It's one thing to teach the mechanics, but the initial strategy in this game is so important that if it isn't taught you will lose guaranteed. This game had a lot of potential, it's sad to see being more irritating than fun. Hopefully they will do an update. (4/27/11) Full Review »
