Take command of the Mobile Infantry and do your part in the war against the Arachnid threat. Build, develop and control your armies to strike an effective balance between tactical superiority and strength in numbers. Ensure that human civilization, not insect, dominates the galaxy now and always!

    Planetary Campaigns
    Fight for control over an entire planet in the campaign mode, where the storyline and missions develop according to your choices and achievements on the battlefield. Remain obedient to the demands of Terran Command no matter how costly or ruthless to benefit from exclusive unit types and special abilities, or follow your own path to glory to become an irrefutable Hero of the Federation. Develop and customize your forces through a detailed technology tree and upgradeable leader characters that can be assigned to your units.

    Tactics & Numbers
    While the Arachnids can rely on virtually limitless numbers, the Mobile Infantry must develop effective tactics to overcome this imbalance. Deploy your units at strategic locations to cover vital choke points and gain superior firepower through tactical use of elevation levels. Be wary, however, that battle mechanics such as True Line of Sight and True Line of Fire also allow Bugs to lay ambushes around every corner, as they are well known for their use of surprise attacks and deception.

    Units & Abilities
    An expansive range of unique units, weapons, and special abilities are at the disposal of MI commanders. Infantry squads armed with Morita Assault Rifles and MX-90 Fragmentation Grenades form the mainstay of your forces. Rocket Troopers deliver deadly payloads with pin-point accuracy while Engineers are vital to shore up defensive positions with MG turrets, barricades, and minefields. As a campaign progresses, technological breakthroughs unlock the true potential of the Federation's arsenal with Power Armor infantry squads, TAC Fighter airstrikes, Marauder mobile suits, and many more developments optimized for spraying Bug ichor across the battlefield.

    Key features
    - Dynamically generated campaigns for virtually limitless replayability.
    - Dozens of unique unit types, each with their own special abilities.
    - Terrain elevation, True Line of Sight & True Line of Fire provide deep tactical gameplay.
    - An extensive technology tree to develop and customize your forces.
    - Persistent leaders can be attached to units and upgraded throughout the campaign.
    - Heroics, explosions, gore, and Bugs. Lots of Bugs.

    Starship Troopers: Terran Command is a great real-time strategy game that has you leading your troops to victory against the arachnid alien forces trying to take over the galaxy. The multiple difficulty settings make it accessible to anyone who wants to destroy bugs.

    Any fan of the film, as long as he is obviously also a lover of RTS, will see his expectations fulfilled.

    Although it’s not very impressive as far as graphics are concerned, this old-school tactical RTS is a game that all fans of Paul Verhoeven’s "Starship Troopers” are going to enjoy.

    Starship Troopers Terran Command fits nicely in the ever growing RTS family. It does what is supposed to do, without daring too much. The franchise based on the namesake movie is respected perfectly and fans will be happy.

    Not necessarily a great strategy game on its own, but still a charming budget title that treats its license with respect and delivers some of the best Starship Troopers action we've seen in any video game so far.

    A strategy game based on Paul Verhoeven's 1997 film. The fundamental element of dealing with countless alien bugs is well displayed, as well as the 19 chapters long single play campaigns are satisfying, whereas everything else is lacking. No multiplayer and unable to play other factions makes you don't have to play it again.

    Starship Troopers: Terran Command tries to capture the campiness and action-packed thrills of the movie, but it falters just like the invasion of Klendathu.

    I played the beta and just bought the game, it's RTS and starship troopers so that's always good.
    It has some mechanics like the line of fire

    It has some mechanics like the line of fire that make it interesting and force you think about positioning and how/when to micro the spellcasting (grenades or whatever, usually some kind of AOE). Only thing that's kinda lacking is macro, the game basebuilding is almost non-existent.
