  • Summary: The best way to explain this game is, it is essentially a complex game of chess. It really tests ones ability to strategize and to out-smart the opponent. If you enjoy a game that puts your mind to the test, I could not recommend this game more. But if you are a casual gamer that does not enjoy much of a challenge, then I guarantee this would be a waste of your time and a major cause of frustration.

  • Summary: Casual gamers beware! Frozen Synapse is a game that will challenge your ability to formulate tactics that lead you to victory. A great change of pace in comparison to other easier games available; and with a user interface that is superior to that of the PC, and potentially endless replay value due to a random level generator, you really shouldn't let this one slip past you.

  • Summary: It's a shame when people have only AAA games in their mind and ignore hidden gems such as Frozen Synapse. The game is not for anyone - that can be said about any game out there. But in this case what I mean is that unlike other games where you just rush and kill everything in sight, in Frozen Synapse you must take a slower and more tactical approach.

  • Summary: Frozen Synapse is an interesting blend of realtime strategy and turn based strategy. This game is quick paced, yet deeply involved. The multitude of options allow you to do anything with your soldiers you can imagine in the battlefield (minus telling them to take a leak). Though this game is vehemently entertaining, the lack of customization hurts a bit. I rather like being able to equip individual soldiers with weapons and gear, but this game doesn't allow it.

  • Summary: An absolute failure right out of the gate. The flaws in this game were so many and so immediately apparent that after 20 minutes of "play" I needed a break. For starters, the user can't customize the controls. This may not be a huge concession for most players, but in the year 2011 it astonishes me that developers still can't grasp the most basic of needs.

  • Summary: A solid tactical indie game made by tactical geeks for geeks. If you enjoyed Rainbow 6's tactical pre-mission planning, like I did, you should check this game out. Strong: Predicting an opponent's move gives you a huge advantage and positioning is king, both good things to see in a tactics heavy game. Moderate: You are exploiting AI predictability sometimes. The mission scoring system makes no sense to me. Weak: Story, writing, characters, and replayability.

  • Summary: Overall this game idea is quite original, the style however seems quite Defcon-like to me. There are a few things that bug me about this game, first is the music seems to be rather repetitive, the second is the fact in single player after you get past the newbie missions the AI seems to psychically know where your guys are.

  • Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Frozen synapse has an awesome name by the way, but this game is starcraft 2, without aliens and put into a turn based game. This is RAW TACTICS, NO LUCK, RAW TACTICS. No idiots are aloud near this game. This game is for people who are smart, because this is a hard game to learn. But its good when you have learned the game. There is over 45 missions in the campaign and its got a half descent story line.

  • Summary: This game rocks! It's clean and easy to learn, but there are constantly new tricks to learn - even after the many games I've played. The game features perfection like I haven't seen from an indie game in many years.

  • Summary: A remarkable game that just gets more fun the more you play. This review will focus on what the other reviews don't describe. To ensure constant action in this turn-based game, you can even play multiple games at the same time. You can watch replays of other games just for fun, or to learn how others play, by showing the commands they did.
