Shock Tactics reviews and comments

As a Fan of turn-based Tactics shooting, I can just recommend the Game. Compared to his Role Model XCom, however, it is very much behind. Especially in the Points Graphics, Effects, Interface and Control (actually in everything). I still have my Fun with it. However, I can overlook these Shortcomings. After all, they don't charge the World for the Game either. With the Starting Price, you shouldn't expect too much either. Everything has probably already been said about the Speakers in the Game. Only Gallows humour helps. :-D

Shock Tactics is a Strategy game consisting of turn-based Battles similar to XCOM and Exploring a World Map. The Combat System is particularly distinguished by the Fact that the Probability of the Attacks is easy to calculate. Most of The time, multiple Shots are fired at the same time and each Shot has its own Chance to hit. Unfortunately, I have not come far in the Game, as the Game has already crashed 2 times in just over 3h Of Play. It is also negative that the Loading Times between Mission and world Map and even between The World Map and the Base are very long. A Flow of The game does not materialize, the first Mission lasts almost 15 Minutes, at 1.5 Minutes of loading Time Before and after a Mission you spend about 20% of your Playing Time waiting. Add to that the Wait for the enemy Actions during a Mission. The Game also has Weaknesses in Fine-tuning and seems unfinished in the whole. I hope the Developers patch the Game, then I'll give it another Chance in a few Months. Until then, I'll stick with XCOM.

Hello, the Game had a nice longer in Mind so I bought the Game today, and played a few Hours, which I enjoyed, but in my Opinion the Game is not Finished yet! The AI is Stupid as Bread or non-existent, Opponents always run the same paths again and again even though they are fired At, i.e. if you have found a good Shot position simply there wait for the opponents to run into the Firing Field and Wait. Running every Round the Self Way. Opponents constantly in large Excess and better equipped than yourself, otherwise they would not have the Hint of a chance! You don't have to reload a Muition, So far there have been a gallows, civilian Soldiers (Allied Shooting Sometimes not at all) although they have super Hits chances they just let themselves pop off! Apart from the Color Of Armor Customize no Individalization options of the Team (except Name) To The conclusion the Game has required super ideas but still some Patches that Will come Hopefully Still Hat on Any Case potential to become a Good Game. If the Entbrokers continue to Work on it!!!!!! At The Jetty Time I can't really recommend it!
