Action and strategy, produced in the style of Cannon Fodder
If you've played Cannon Fodder before, then you will know what kind of recipe to expect from this title. You are in control of a small group of soldiers, and you march about minding your main objectives. The game is set in a war torn world, with elements that seem to suggest a WWII themed conflagration. At any rate, your control this platoon directly, either individually, soldier by soldier or the entire group. You can split them in more than just one unit and attempt strategies such as flanking, or (and this is what the game will mostly allow, given the way its maps and situations look like), you can just use them judiciously but more action oriented. Be careful though, once a soldier is down, it doesn't respawn the next mission, and, because of their sparse but funny lines of dialogue, you're going to grow attached to them. Therefore, Theatre of Death is a good game, maybe even better looking and more realistic than Cannon Fodder, so that too makes it worth playing. So, at the very least, give it a try, it will not disappoint.
