Every so often a game comes along and blends a variety of genres together in a unique way. And that is exactly what THQ Nordic have done with This Is The Police. Part strategy, part simulator, part tycoon yet with a well-constructed story to back it up. However, blending genres is a dangerous ground which can lead to disaster if incorrectly executed. You’ve spent your whole career in the Police Department. And now, a mere 180 days away from your retirement, you realise you need a nice little pot of money, to the sum of half a million dollars, to ... Read More »
It's very common to offer gamers a season pass.  It's an easy way to invest in the future of a game and ensure there isn't any possible way you will miss out on content.  Ubisoft has come out and revealed what to expect in the season pass for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands. The season pass will feature two major expansions as well as a special mission and many character boosting products.  Although there hasn't been any information on how much we can expect it to cost us, here are the details of the season pass as a whole: One ...

The Behemoth - creator of Alien Hominid HD, Castle Crashers and Battleblock Theatre - is one of the most-respected indie developers around, with a unique style and a singular perspective. In Pit People, out on Xbox Game Preview this week, they've turned their talents towards turn-based strategy, with predictably anarchic results. Pip People offers single player, two-player and four-player (two vs two) strategic action, testing your turn-based skills throughout a loot-filled adventure of exploration and battle. "Master the destiny of a full cast of tragically unique heroes as you plot a course across an apocalyptic wonderland! "Dogged at every step by a ... Read More »
We're only on our third mission when we realise we're in trouble. Our dogged insistence on relying on the tactics that served us so well in 2012's XCOM: Enemy Unknown / Enemy Within has led us to this place, and our beleaguered resistance fighters are unlikely to get out of this one alive. Farewell, brave pawns. Your time was all too brief. XCOM 2 - eschewing any other moniker for the first time in this laser-squad-inspired franchise's 22 years - takes the 2012 reboot and improves upon it in every way. It's tougher, more brutal, deeper, more involving, better looking and more ... Read More »
Today has seen quite a lot of information released onto the world wide web regarding the development status of Halo Wars 2. The update came from Dan Ayoub, Studio Head of Strategy Games, 343 Industries. In a post on the official Halo Waypoint website Ayoub stressed that the studio have been working hard to rectify and fine tune some of the issues brought to their attention during the BETA stage a couple of months ago. One of the biggest problems the game faced during its BETA stage was the plague of connectivity and de-synch issues. The Head of Strategy Games at 343 ... Read More »
War. War never changes. That’s even true when you’re talking about Risk: Urban Assault. It may look very different to the board game it’s based upon, with its Modern Warfare-esque twist. And you can see why developers Zoe Mode and Ubisoft have taken this approach, since guns, tanks and explosions makes Risk: Urban Assault that much more marketable to gamers raised on military shooters. But at its heart, like the original board game, it’s still just a turn-based strategy game. That's a blessing and a curse. Set in a post-apocalyptic world at war, you’ll take control of one of three factions ... Read More »
Cannon Brawl melds the tactical warfare and destructible terrain of Worms with the twitch reactions required of a Call of Duty style shooter.  There's lots to see and do and Cannon Brawl is certainly a fun action game - especially in multiplayer - but it struggles to deliver on its promise of an engaging battle of wits. Originally a PC title released in 2013, Cannon Brawl is a 2D real-time strategy game that pits players against AI and human opponents, both local and online.  You command your base from a mobile airship that you move around the map, building offensive and defensive units to ...

Thinking. Let's be honest - it's not everyone's strong suit. You, though. You look like an intelligent, thoughtful person (unless you are, you know, the presumptive Republican nominee) and I just bet you love a bit of strategic thinking. We do, too. So here are five quite brilliant Xbox One strategy games that'll work the old grey matter more than the trigger finger. 5. The Living Dungeon There's something comforting about a board game. Whether it's harking back to a childhood we never fully embraced, a yearning for simpler times, or just an excuse to hang out with friends, board ... Read More »
