Apart from me being atrocious at the game I like the mechanics and idea behind it. Everyone who does not run away screaming as soon as the words 'turn-based' and 'tactics' show up in the same sentence should definitely have a look. Now excuse me, I have to lead my minions to certain death...
You're most welcome, glad you're enjoying it. I tend to only be online during the week, so I'll try and start a game with you soon. All the missions so far have either rated me 1 or 100, I'm not sure if it's meant to be some sort of jokey score system, but it's quite irritating- on the first hostage level, no one on my team died, yet I still got a 1. Weird.
