A relatively unnoticed game at the time of its release that suddenly became heavily sought after after the phenomenal success of its successor X-COM, Julian Gollop demonstrated his knack for deep and addictive strategy games in this early PC release. Control a squad of futuristic soldiers in 5 large missions. X-COM veterans will be right at home with this one, as it is obvious how the gameplay would later evolve into a classic that rocketed Julian and his company Mythos to fame and fortune. |
Curiously enough, Laser Squad also features a great 2-player option that is missing in the X-COM games – co-operating with your friend to win a scenario is much more fun than letting the AI handle it. Two thumbs up!
