Theatre of Death is a fun, innovative isometric action/strategy hybrid by Software Shed/Psygnosis. Similar in many ways to Cannon Fodder, but a lot more complex. In this futuristic tactical combat game, you are a commander in charge of a squad of soldiers (usually ten or more). In addition to giving them the standard orders to march and kill enemies, you can tell them to climb into tanks and crush the enemies with them. Your little soldiers can also go into weapon sheds to change their weaponry (including to those collected in that level), and you can call in air strikes and reinforcements if the going gets tough. Morale is also an important element in the game: your soldiers can panic and run, and in some missions, your goal is to scare the enemy into surrendering. With a lot of missions, varied scenery, and gameplay options, Theatre of Death is a perfect game for fans of Cannon Fodder who want more options and challenge, but don't want the level of gritty realism seen in Jagged Alliance. Thumbs up!
