Man the Guns is a solid addition to the Hearts of Iron IV DLC line, offering excellent reworks and new components to core aspects.

In its desire to stick to the original Fallout RPGs, ATOM RPG disregards the lessons CRPGs have learned in the intervening years. Fallen short of both its predecessors and contemporaries in the genre, ATOM RPG .

Element: Space, developed by Sixth Vowel and published by Inca Games, is a turn-based strategy RPG that sees you fill the shoes of Captain Christopher Pietham, tactician and leader. You will guide Captain Chris through the galaxy on a mission to stop the evil organization Tempest who are bent on inciting war between the many factions in the galaxy despite it being on the verge of peace. Many challenges await on your path to peace, and only Captain Pietham and his crew will be able to walk it.

Laser fire, boarding torpedos, and gigantic ships fill the void of space. Commanders shall organize, deploy fleets, and engage enemy armadas in epic real-time conflicts, all the while managing skills that each vessel can deploy against its enemies. Welcome to the 41st millenium in Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2.

Taking clear inspiration from games like XCOM, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden expands upon the formula by mixing up how you think about stealth, skill trees, and storylines, truly making it a unique and refreshing entry into the turn-based strategy genre.

From the seas comes the undead hordes of the Vampire Coast. Prepare yourself to either resist or bring the terrors of the oceans ashore as the sea-faring zombie pirates. From shambling musket-wielding warriors to shipwrecks reanimated into towering artillery pieces, you are sure to get your fix of piracy and destruction.

This nostalgic, Pac-man-esque arcade title will have you laughing out loud and entertained for hours upon hours.

World War 3 had a rocky launch and will hopefully be fully redeemed by the development staff. The gameplay combined with the deep customization really does complete a modern military shooter dream. This title offers players the ability to be in full control of their gear and character, all while being fun. While this title is in the infant stages of Early Access, it shows great promise to be a fantastic experience in the long run. While map variation and different weapon choices and game modes seem to be limited as of now, I am sure we will see more and more content added in the future. Godspeed, The Farm 51.

Strong mechanics, fun combat, and a lot of replay value are brought down by so-so graphics and a story that’s impossible to follow, yet you’ll still have fun mowing down scores of enemies.

Side-scrolling, door-booting, and criminal-annihilating, Door Kickers: Action Squad is sure to fill the “I haven’t blown anything up today” hole that is burning through your chest. With couch and online co-op, you and your partner can blast through terrorist-filled house after drug-lord-filled house together. Just don’t expect anything deeper than east to west shooting.

Two parts XCOM and one part Invisible, Inc., Phantom Doctrine is a fun take on the turn-based tactical genre that struggles with silly pathfinding and an uncertain storyline.

Fast-paced, tactical, unforgiving and downright fun. Insurgency: Sandstorm is an upcoming first- person shooter being developed by New World Interactive, the company behind the original Insurgency, as well as Day of Infamy (both of which boast Very Positive overall review ratings on Steam). Sandstorm was announced back in February of 2016, but didn’t really gain traction or too much hype until about mid-2018. With the pre-order beta going live in early August, I leapt at the chance to try out a sequel to one of my favorite shooters. After about four days of gameplay, I can’t think of a more fun first-person shooter that has released this year.

Sticking to the established 4X formula helps to make Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War enjoyable, but keeps it from greatness. While Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War is one of the better uses of the WH40K license, it’s only a so-so 4X game.

French independent studio Eugen Systems (R.U.S.E., Wargame series) is pleased to share a first-look for Steel Division 2, the sequel to its 2017’s real-time strategy title Steel Division: Normandy 44. Set during Operation Bagration, the gigantic Soviet offensive in the summer of 1944, players in Steel Division 2 will see 10v10 multiplayer battles and hundreds of new historically authentic units, and experience the turn-based, single-player ‘Dynamic Strategic Campaigns’.

Ancestors Legacy has something to offer everyone. Between its multiplayer skirmishes and its impressive solo campaigns, there’s enough to entertain any kind of player.

Back in the big city, Police Chief Jack Boyd, the protagonist of This Is the Police, was too deeply mired in bureaucracy to pay much attention to field tactics. But in Sharpwood, a cold frontier town where a young woman named Lilly Reed has recently become sheriff, you'll need to take a new approach: you'll have to take your cops under direct control during particularly difficult and dangerous missions.

Puzzle your way through smoothly-textured environments and command an army of Guardians in Masters of Anima, a noteworthy genre-fusing indie.

Tempest Citadel makes large promises and misses the mark on them all. While it’s certainly playable, it’s a frustrating experience that lacks player engagement. The most redeeming part of this title is the original artwork, which may entice the unsuspecting consumer into purchasing a lackluster entry into the already crowded strategy genre.

This blend of the old with the new relies too heavily on the old, while the new stuff fails to thrive. In its current state it’s buggy and lacks some fundamental requirements for smooth play we’ve come to expect from the genre.

Gaijin Entertainment, creators of the vehicular combat MMO War Thunder,announced a new, tactical submarine combat game in development, Silent Thunder. In clashes between three of the major military powers of the 21st century, players will face off against each other in combat on the world’s most powerful nuclear submarines.
