If the likes of classic shooters such as Cannon Fodder are your bag, then Infested Planet should be right up your alley. It mixes intense blasting action with just the right amount of strategy to create a top notch experience. It's a trifle on the short side while the visuals are a little on the bland side, but apart from these quibbles, it remains a fun little game. The idea is that you are in command of a squad of five space marines and must defeat hordes of aliens which are surrounding you on a bizarre world. You get to order your squad around, taking out the aliens as they flank you and seek to cut you off, while taking advantage of various weapons to help you out. These are much needed as the aliens evolve to deal with your weapons, so the game is a constant struggle to adapt and overcome, requiring some quick thinking as well as an itchy trigger finger. Everything is played out in real time, and is viewed from overhead, making it easy to move around and plan your attack. There's a campaign to pay through, while maps are procedurally generated to keep things fresh, and there are plenty of weapons and alien mutations to keep you on your toes. For the most part, this is an enjoyable experience. The blasting action is simple enough to get to grips with, but provides lots of challenge and tactical opportunities, while the simple Command & Conquer RTS-style elements are well implemented. Visuals are spectacular and it's not a game to last you forever, but while it does, you should have a good time here.
