Engaging variety and refreshing complexity make Natural Selection 2 a supremely rewarding experience, once you come to grips with it.

Great amount of depth and variety ; Gameplay encompasses a wide range of playing styles ; Match flow varies hugely from game to game ; RTS and FPS elements are both exceptionally well-handled

Not enough maps ; The lack of hands-on tutorial makes matches initially intimidating

It's unlikely your team will be able to afford every single bit of kit, so you have to choose your purchases carefully, and this adds a layer of strategy to all aspects of the game. A good commander will have a game plan, focusing on specific research...

An FPS/RTS hybrid that's (mostly) out of this world.

Constantly evolving matches; crazy strategic possibilities; extremely different yet well-balanced sides

Tough to learn; matches can fall into repetitive stalemates; few maps and only one mode

I don't mind learning the intricacies of how a game plays. In fact, that kind of reminds me of the first time I had to defuse a bomb on the fly. But I digress, do you prefer complex games to hold your hand and show you how to play, or do you prefer to...

What began as a popular mod has now finally become its own formidable standalone shooter, one that’s looking to nurture the very same community that made it possible to release the first version of this great shooter all those years ago...

A seamless blend of shooting and strategy; Timeless sci-fi art style and setting that feels like Aliens meets StarCraft; Regular community and developer support; Great price point and steam integration with mod support

No real tutorial mode outside of going to YouTube; Steep learning curve for the commander portion of the game; Commander UI needs some tweaking both visually and functionally
