  1. One cool thing is that the terrain in the game can be destroyed.
  2. Not a very deep or complex game but the mix of genres such as action, RPG and turn-based strategy is an interesting and intriguing combination.
  3. The game is often too easy because of its own innovations, as they aren't streamlined enough to really work as they should.
  4. As an example of unabashed, often exuberant Britsoft that pulls out the SRPG's staples and rebinds it in approachable ease, Future Tactics is remarkable, deserving of cult status. [Aug 2004, p.99]
  5. The pace is slow - even for a tactical title - and once you figure out that "strategy" here consists entirely of shooting something, then finding a place to hide, you've pretty much cracked the whole enchilada. [June 2004, p.81]
  6. 50
    High levels of patience and acceptance of the mediocrity that fills so much of the early sections are necessary to find some of the highlights that Future Tactics has to offer.
  7. The Uprising's lack of complexity, shallow plot and uninteresting characters leave the game weltering in the shade of other 'grown up' RPG titles.
