  • Excerpt: On the surface, Stalin vs Martians is one of those games that makes you want to get up and cheer developers that come up with whacky game ideas and then get approval and financing to make them. And when we say whacky, picture the entire Soviet Russian national anthem played to the old USSR flag for an introduction. Or how about, Do you like cats? That's one of the games options under the gameplay tab. Yes, this is definitely not your typical game.

  • Conclusion: Its price is extortionate and it’s shocking that its seen release. Its execution is inherently flawed. Mother Russia is calling and we’re not ashamed to say we’ve given Stalin Vs. Martians a big push. Avoid.

  • Summary: Stalin vs. Martians is a good joke, but a bad, unbalanced mess of a game. At 15$, it’s also an expensive joke that I can’t recommend to anyone. If the price drops to 5$ or even 10$, it would be worth picking up for the soundtrack alone as it is the game’s true highlight.

Stalin vs. Martians Review

GameSpot
7 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Don't be offended by Stalin vs. Martians' subject matter. The genocidal communist leader may figure heavily in this budget-priced real-time strategy game, but it's hard to be outraged when he's gyrating his hips to the beat of Russian dance pop, or signing off his written missives with "xxooxx." No, be offended because Stalin vs. Martians is an abysmal game that represents the dregs of game design.
  • Pros: Dancing Stalin
  • Cons: It isn't fun, and it isn't funny, No strategy involved, Frustrating, broken missions, Excruciating sound design, Loads of technical problems

Stalin vs Martians (PC) Review

  • Excerpt: I think it is mandatory for every reviewer to review a horrible game every once in a while. I mean, reviewing good games feels less like work and more like fun, so to really put the WORK into things you need to be willing to take one for the team, right? So it came to pass that I voluntarily asked to review Stalin vs Martians. I was well aware of how poorly received the game was, but a part of me refused to believe that it was as bad as they said it was.

Stalin vs. Martians review (PC)

  • Excerpt: But anyway, the game is an RTS in the same way that margarine is butter, which is to say it's not, but it looks similar! The overhead camera is old hat to the genre. The piles of units marching together toward their objective is familiar. The hud, with its point-and-click interface and minimap, leaves no doubt. Any given screenshot tells the RTS story, but it's only when you play the game that you realize that something has gone horribly wrong.

  • Excerpt: Being a student of history, I was a little concerned when assigned Stalin Vs. Martians to review. Although he gets better PR because he was part of the Allies in World War II, a move he was forced into and didn't really want to make, Stalin was as big a bastard as Hitler. In fact, there is some debate over who killed more innocent people in their time. Both killed millions, and depending on how you count, and who you count, Stalin was the bigger murderer.

  • Conclusion: Music is about the only thing that keeps this game from deserving a one, and that is mediocre at best.
