Board games rock
Originally, Space Crusade is an sci-fi adventure board game that was released by Games Workshop in 1990., while the this computer version was released in 1993. It's actually a computer conversion of the board-game, with a board that could be viewed in 2D or isometric projection views. In the game, you play as a Commander and have 4 marines in your team and you play against 2 to 4 other players, one of those playing aliens. The Space Marines are allied against the aliens, but they also try to complete the mission objective before the other Marine squads and return their team to the docking claw. Points are scored for units killed and missions completed, deducted for units lost. Players with sufficient points at the end of the game (including the Alien Player) can be promoted to the next rank, which gives them access to additional order or equipment for the subsequent games. All in all, the rules of the game are all the same as in the board game, only this is the computerized version. That said, it only depends on if you will you stick to the dices and cards or grab a keyboard to play it.
