    By combining elements from collectible card games and Plants vs. Zombies, Zachtronic Industries has created a game that feels weirdly familiar yet brand new. Ironclad Tactics mixes the American Civil War with robots, creating an addictive strategy game overflowing with charm.

    Only those who can commit to learning the quirks of the turn system and limited deck size will find the game rewarding.

    Ironclad Tactics brings together a plethora of gameplay styles, and in the process, picks up some of their best and worst features, all the while throwing in a few of its own.

    For fans of strategic collectible card games, Ironclad Tactics will provide hours of entertainment and offers the ability to go deep into its deck-building mechanics. For more casual players, the game's difficulty spikes and deck micro-management can quickly feel overwhelming. Despite its promising qualities, Ironclad's list of problems clink and clank too loudly not to notice.

    Ultimately it’s a game that feels like some of the mechanics are a little bit too wonky to be truly great, but if you have a knack for real time strategy you’ll get a good deal of enjoyment out of it.

    Unfortunately a lack of personality and gameplay that doesn't live up to its promises have left Ironclad Tactics dead in the water.

    Ironclad Tactics is like those Plants vs. Zombies levels where there was a scrolling set of items that you can deploy instead of being able toIronclad Tactics is like those Plants vs. Zombies levels where there was a scrolling set of items that you can deploy instead of being able to pick the items you want to deploy - you know the levels everyone hated. Despite thinking you built yourself a great deck, the randomness of cards to deploy will cause you to lose. The timed turns makes it the worst of both worlds - not enough time to think through everything and lots of waiting around for the turn to increment. Initially it seems very deep but the differences in cards isn't that much and it just takes a bit of luck to beat the terrible AI. It is a good looking game and somebody spent some time on the story comic cut-scenes. If you ever wanted a unique Steampunk Plants vs. Zombies, this game might be for you. Expand
