The Red Solstice 2: Survivors Preview

Red Solstice was a high-quality squad-based mouselook shooter set on Mars, in which the player controlled marines attempting to survive a monster apocalypse. They had to explore a fallen colony while teaming up with AI marines to battle zombies and mutants while securing technology and making good their escape. In addition to a stellar solo mode, it allowed up to four players to team up online in campaign or skirmish modes together. In developing Red Solstice 2, the developers have really dug in on the multiplayer aspect, refining the hybrid shooter/RTS.

Coming Up Short

HIGH Boindil’s impromptu minecart massacre.

LOW The battle system is frequently a confusing mess.

WTF Auto-pathing that makes characters occasionally leap to their deaths.
