Tactics oriented game in the vein of Jagged Alliance
The problem with Incubation is that it doesn't tell as interesting a story as the X Coms used to... Also, in terms of telling a story that follows the Battle Isle series, of which this game is a part of, that is also not the case. Nope, this game's story is self contained, none too interesting and none too engaging. It's all about a mutation of the Herpes virus that makes it more dangerous and that infects the inhabitants of a planet called Scayra. So, basically the plot is alien zombies attack, what should the poor humans do? Well what they can do, in this game, is command the marines at the level of a squad, which, as mentioned is in the same vein as in Jagged Alliance. Graphically, the game is also a bit underwhelming, the kind that could have looked better had it received just a modicum more detailed maps and more details. But, well, it works, it has a bit of that Alien (the movie) atmosphere, though not too accentuated, and, so, it doesn't really stay with you, doesn't really keep you interested for long. So, better scour the Battle Island bundle for some other game that is better produced. I suggest Battle Isle 2 Scenery CD - Titan's Legacy as the better alternative.
