Reach for the stars
StarCrawlers isn't exactly a classic game that's going to be talked about for years to come, but it delivers where it counts and that's in the fun department. It's a cool turn-based combat game which takes inspiration from things as diverse as Laser Squad and Hack and which features some slick visuals and plenty of strategic action. The game thrusts you into the role of a rogue Crawler, a renegade adventurer who will do just about anything for money, and that involves recovering stolen assets, spying or just causing trouble for the sake of it. You get to build your crew of misfits, then embark on a series of galaxy spanning missions which mostly involve waging war against a variety of hi-tech enemies with a number of destructive weapons. The whole thing takes place in procedurally generated dungeons, with random events also popping up to keep you on your toes, while the ability to choose your foes and allies also affects how the story unfolds. You have different classes to select too, each with different skills for both battle and exploration, while the wealth of weapons, armor and assorted items also add plenty of depth and customization possibilities. For an enjoyable slice of science fiction action, then StarCrawlers is tough to beat. It doesn't excel in any area but instead provides good solid entertainment that is rarely less than good fun. The visuals are nicely done, with some decent design work, while the combat is fairly deep and strategic, making this a fair investment of your time and money.
