Frozen Synapse

destructoid.com
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Indie games come in all shapes and forms, but while many offer creative designs and experiences to those who are willing to look for them, just as many can be a bit derivative of old designs. That isn't the case with Frozen Synapse , a game that could be shoehorned into a "chess meets Rainbow Six " description although that doesn't do it justice. This game does something more than just mix existing genres: it encourages a new form of strategic and tactical thinking.

Frozen Synapse

Square-Go
21 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Turn based strategy games are often thought of as stodgy old war games for people who would rather be playing the game with dice and painted models but can’t find an opponent to play against. With the release of Frozen Synapse this has never been less true. Set in a virtual city which mirrors a futuristic dystopia, you play Tactics and are given command of small squads of vatform; virtual clones of troops.

Review: Frozen Synapse (PC)

Diehard GameFAN

  • Excerpt: Frozen Synapse was really one of those impulse buys. This is quite rare for me as I might as well compile enough research to complete a master’s thesis before I place my hard earned money down for a videogame.

Frozen Synapse – PC Game Review

Armchair General
3 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Every once in a while an indie game comes out which distills a genre down to its core and in the process, ends up seeming completely fresh. Minecraft did it for 3D exploration, Gratuitous Space Battles did it for, well, gratuitous space battles, and Frozen Synapse has come along and done it for turn-based, strategic action.
  • Pros: Solid tactical gameplay that is engaging in both single and multiplayer modes. Strong AI. Ability to play and manage multiple online games at any one time.
  • Cons: Graphics are stylized and serve their purpose, but I was left missing a more gritty, true to life atmosphere. Greater variety and customization of weapons would be a plus. Only the deathmatch game type can be played in offline skirmish mode.

Game Debate
28 June 2011
  • Excerpt: “Why did I do that? What in the name of all that is holy have I just done?”. That’s my brain hours after I’ve committed myself to a move on Frozen Synapse. Long after I’ve turned my PC off, those little green men inching their way to what is surely impending doom still haunt my thoughts.
  • Pros: Simple but full of depth, Incredible sountrack, Just really very good!
  • Cons: Menu needs more polish

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Frozen Synapse is one of those shrinking species of games that bestows both spectacular single and multiplayer options. It also is fun to play for ten minutes or two hours at a time. Plus you can buy a second copy at a discount. Each game is a thrill and provides endless points of speculation and analysis. If you have ever liked strategy at any level, even only casually, Frozen Synapse is guaranteed to thrill and stimulate.
  • Pros: Simple concept, tons of replay and social options, large and engaging campaign
  • Cons: Server issues, tutorial is a little weak
