Excerpt: Some games are hard to classify. Future Tactics: The Uprising is one of them. It isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t real-time strategy because itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s turn-based, but it canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t really be classified as a turn-based RPG because there are strategy elements involved in the game rather than just two groups, one on each side of the screen, going at it in traditional turn-based RPG fashion.
Excerpt: In the not-so-distant future extra dimensional creatures have taken over Earth. This is the world of Future Tactics: The Uprising , the upcoming tactical RPG from Crave Games. Join the fight to save humanity! The future isn't looking so pretty. The human survivors are spread throughout the world, starving, homeless and living in constant fear.
Excerpt: Sometimes you can hit all the little details and miss the big picture. Future Tactics: The Uprising is a prime example of doing just that. Combining some of the best elements of squad-based shooters, intense action and RPG-style character advancement, the game seems like it hit all the marks.

Excerpt: Bright and cartoony, you might wonder at first glance if Future Tactics: The Uprising might swim a tad bit on the shallow end of the pool. Well, you might be right. If you haven't had a chance to check out this semi-RPG with lots of bang and little else, click here to let Eric fill you in.
Excerpt: Dans un futur lointain, l'humanité connaît une grave crise. La face du monde a changé : de nombreuses cités ont été anéanties et des pays entiers ont disparu de la surface de la Terre. A leur place, des créatures dotées d'une technologie avancée mais à l'intellect lent ont fait...
Conclusion: Wie Worms? Nein leider nicht. Future Tactics kommt nicht im Geringsten an das Vorbild heran. Was hat zu dem etwas mickrigen Abschneiden beigetragen? Rekapitulieren wir: Die komplett zerst�rbare Umgebung, die rundenbasierte Taktikballerei und das Bewegen, Sch�tzen der Einheiten stehen dem Idol in Nichts nach.
Pros: Zerstörbare Landschaft, Im Grunde geniales Spielprinzip a la Worms
Cons: dämliche KI, monotone Missionen, nur eine Waffe, ungewöhnliche Tastatursteuerung, kein Internetspiel
