    It's a niche game, as all Slitherine projects are, but the publisher does have a deep understanding of what makes for a quality, deep, strategy game, and it has applied the same expertise to the tactics sub-genre with impressive results.

    Legions of Steel is a recreation of the classic tabletop game from the 90s. It excels at conveying the original feel of the game thanks to its well implemented mechanics. At its core, Legions of Steel is a tactical turn-based action experience that rewards the top quality strategist. It may display a simplistic appearance, but Legions of Steel is a challenge for veterans of the genre.

    Legions of Steel does something wrong. I love turn-based tactical games, but this did not connect at any level. Bland graphics, too big levels causing a lot of empty turns, on which move too many units. [Oct 2015]

    Legions of Steel leads to a fatalistic cyberpunk fiction and that fits perfectly but charged a leisurely battles danger. Each mistake can be costly in this strategy Slitherine.

    Veterans of the genre and fans of the original board game will probably enjoy this adaptation. Everyone else will deem it too uncomely and dull.

    It’s missing that spark of personality and something that ties all the scenarios together. And it’s in desperate need of a great deal of polish.

    It offers a challenge and requires careful planning, but it's missing mechanical depth.

    Legions of steel is very well presented, very addictive and well worth the asking price.
    There is hour's and hours of fun to be had here.
    Legions of steel is very well presented, very addictive and well worth the asking price.
    There is hour's and hours of fun to be had here. With a simple but powerful rule set/ability's you will face hoards of very intelligent machines.
    This is one of those games that has you feeling good about yourself after completing a mission. It might have taken you 10 retries, but you beat the machine and that's all that matter.
    The game also holds a very immersing atmosphere, especially when you turn on fog of war, the game then becomes very alien, in more ways then one.

    Well worth a buy.

    Legions of Steel is a great tactical! I didn't know the original board game and it's kind of a more balanced Space Hulk. The story is toldLegions of Steel is a great tactical!
