You will be pleasantly surprised
Metal Marines is a strategy game published in 1994 by Mindscape and developed by Namco. Strategy games often give the fans of this genre multiple options to exploit, an attractive setting, style and interesting themes. Well, this game fits perfectly in the description. You will have the opportunity to test your skills and tactics in the futuristic scenario presented. The action takes place in the year 2117, when you run a military force whose main unit is a robot called Metal Marines, that can be sent to attack. The Antimatter Cold War caused damage upon Earth, and Zorgeuf is also responsible for the disturbances created. You have to defeat him and his lieutenants. There are some maps where you can put commander bases, and if they are destroyed, you will lose the battles. You must also concentrate into managing your own resources, by creating new buildings and upgrading the existing ones. I am sure most of the strategy game enthusiasts will expect this game to be similar to Warcraft
, but they won't receive what they want. However, Metal Marines represents a new enjoyable challenge, that will leave them pleasantly surprised. The graphics look good, so the sounds, and the gameplay is totally addicting!

I played this game over and over again, I hate to install it on my new computer as I will never get anything done. If you like strategy games this is one for you. It is simple, but the later stages become hard. You can not develope 1 strategy to get through the game. I want to play again, but I will be up all night!!
