Críticas

"Alex Vostrov has created the most fiendishly clever, creatively generous, and cinematically thrilling facing-down-the-alien-hordes real time strategy game this side of the original Starcraft! Who says a great RTS has to be a big budget studio endeavor?"
--Tom Chick, Quarter To Three

"Infested Planet is a game I’m excited to see evolve, as it has the potential to be a unique and engaging RTS unlike any I have played before."
--Nightmare Mode

"Infested Planet is already quite fun, and the current beta is being very actively expanded, refined and tuned. If you’re into strategy, this might well be worth keeping an eye on. After all, who knows what it could mutate into?" --DIY Gamer

"The mutations are an ingenious way to mix each game up and keep the experience fresh."
--WarGamer

Acerca de este juego

Command a team of 5 elite soldiers against an alien horde of 100,000. Surrounded on all sides, you must outmaneuver and outsmart the enemy.

The enemy is closing in around you. Your soldiers are being flanked and the perimeter is slowly collapsing under a vicious alien assault. Robotic turrets will not last much longer. Just a little more and the bugs will swarm into your unprotected base. What are your orders?

You order your soldiers to fall back to a defensive chokepoint and rebuild your defenses. Sacrifice the forward squads to gain some extra time. Gather your team while equipping them with flamethrowers and laser guns. Start building a siege cannon for fire support. Then, while the aliens are busy, flank their main hives to destroy and capture them.

You have just pulled off a tactical victory - but there's no time to rest.

The aliens are constantly mutating. One moment your shotguns are ripping through the horde, the next the aliens grow hard, bullet-proof armour. You must adapt as well. Equip your team with stealth suits, miniguns, grenade launchers - your commands will decide the battle's outcome.

Features

  • Real time tactical combat
  • A lengthy campaign where you develop new weapons
  • Procedural maps and random mutation system keep the game fresh
  • 21 Human weapons and buildings for you to wield
  • 33 Alien mutations to keep you on your toes
  • Fight thousands of enemies at once

Infested Planet is a top-down swarm management RTS developed by Rocket Bear Games. In Infested Planet you take command of a team of five elite soldiers waging war against an alien race which constantly adapts to its situation. Over the course of the campaign you must learn more about this alien race you fight in order to be more effective against it, along the way both sides of the fight receive upgrades and new toys to play with and you must adapt to accomodate these changes.

+Cool art style and good graphics
+Mostly well designed, your units, buildings, enemies etc. all look cool
+A few different soldier classes to be unlocked and used, each with strengths and weaknesses
+Several different types of enemies
+Simple yet fun gameplay which consists of just telling your units where to go. However this can at times get very repetitive, especially on longer missions
+A lot of new technologies and upgrades to be unlocked in the in-game shop
+A lot of missions in the campaign mode, many of which are randomly generated
+If you recycle a unit you get everything you spent on it back
+Enemy AI is very unpredictable which makes the game more challenging
+You can customise Skirmish maps
+Most missions allow you to approach your objectives in a way which suits your own playstyle
+Pretty interesting story
+Good sound effects

-Very steep difficulty curve, the first few story missions are easy but after that they get significantly harder, it would benefit from easing you into it a little bit more. You very quickly get swamped with enemies from everywhere, it becomes hard to go on the offense as well as defend what you've already taken
-As mentioned earlier the gameplay does get a bit repetitive
-Level environments are pretty dull and there's little variation between levels in the same location
-Apart from a couple of exceptions the missions all are pretty much just split into two types of mission, capture everything in your own time or capture everything withing a specific time

Verdict:
7.5

A fun top down RTS game with a cool art style, good variety of soldier classes, several different enemies to fight and lots of unlocks.

Infested Planet is a mix between StarCraft and Starship Troopers.

I will start with the negative points first:
The difficulty can be quite extreme in the later levels. Despite a very flexible gameplay system and some good level ideas or even some maps that are randomly generated, overall the game can end up feeling repetitive if played in long sessions. The art style goes from excellent to just ok.

Now for the rest. Infested Planet plays like a tactical game, or a light RTS (Real-time Strategy). The base construction is minimal, as there is no resource harvesting and there are no factories. The buildings just provide defense or a specific bonus. They are definitively not at the center of the game.
However the distribution of the bases are an important factor of the game. Each base is actually a capture point that can belong to either the player or the Aliens according to who takes it. In general, the player starts with one point and will have to battle through the map and capture each point.

Each Alien base produces a continuous swarm of creatures that attack the player's positions (and despite some minor pathfinding issues, the AI is not stupid and can change course to attack undefended point). The player then has to manage the defense against the flow of Aliens, and the offense to capture points. Capturing a point has two effects that allow the game its sense of progression: some building points are awarded to the player in order to upgrade their army, and the Aliens benefit from a new mutation (new enemy type, new defenses, new hives) that increases the difficulty. Towards the end of the map, the Aliens are very powerful but the player has a wide range of options to deal with them and adapt to the mutation.

Adaptation is an important word to describe this game. First, because there are a lot of options available to the player. Different kind of weapons for the Marines to equip (Minigun, Flamethrower), or different buildings (turrets, airstrike, bonuses for the Marines or buildings). And even if it is more gamey than realistic, at any given point it is possible to remove one of these options to retrieve back all the building points that it costs and change strategy on the fly. This is really GREAT and it allows to experiment without being stuck in a specific technological branch, and to react better to situations (however, some bonuses feel lackluster in comparison to others and thus the cost of entry is not worth investing). Since I am praising this gameplay idea, I also think that the UI (User Interface) and gameplay and level design are all based on the RTS formula but with some nice and subtle improvement touches.
An example would be the dreaded escort mission that plagues most RTS games. Except that here, if the escort dies, it just respawns and tries again. Thus the escort feels like an additional firepower help until the map is safe enough to navigate it, instead of being a burden!

What I like with this game is its adaptability, its polished touches that are delightful surprises, and its sense of progression and pace. Every little step won or lost to the Alien swarms can be felt by the player, and there are very tense moments. And then the overwhelming scary swarm can suddenly be overturned into a jubilating victory, until a new mutation tips the balance of power.

Really a unique and interesting game that shows that RTS games can offer more than we think if they are well thought-of and if the developers are not afraid to make changes in the classic formula.

8.5/10.
A gun-toting, mass alien slaughterfest!
I'm a big fan of this game, it's so good I just keep coming back to play again!

It's an action-packed top down RTS, with pause. The campaign doesn't get too weighed down with strategy and planning, instead focusing more on squad-based combat. Unlike other similar games, you won't spend the whole game waiting for building and research upgrade bars to finally reach 100% so that you can get on with the game. There are even inexpesive technologies that weaponise your bunkers, so you don't need to waste money on guards, or spend the whole game running back to re-capture defenseless capture points. That being said, there are certain times when strategy is necessary to win. You may need to think about how you put your group together, and which upgrades you give them to begin with, but after that it's just about blowing the hell outta alien scum!

You can purchase weapons and tech in whichever order you please, which gives you the option to prioritise upgrades to match your playstyle. You can even purchase single-mission bonuses such as an additional sniper at the start of the game. Levels give plenty of money to stay up-to-date with upgrades, but even if you're struggling earlier levels are usually quite effective to farm.

Some helpful tips:
  • Note the difference between a "single mission power-up" and a weapon/tech unlock.
  • Medpacs are very helpful for the first few missions, but pretty useless after that.
  • Weaponising your bunkers is incredibly useful.
  • The healing building is the most useful upgrade. (Combat is squad-based, you can't win without a good squad).
  • Don't forget to use the attack-towards function when moving (Default button: A + Right Click).


  • [ - ] Con's:
    My biggest problem with this game was that I couldn't find any way to manually select a specific bunker for my troops to respawn at.
    For example: When you lose a few troops while retreating, only to have one or two troops respawn at the other end of the map. You end up having to get them killed and hope that the aliens capture that spawn point while they are dead, so that they respawn at the right spot. -_-
    Admittedly, the graphics are a little lackluster.
    Level design barely changes from start to finish
    No difference in terrain. Eg. No "move slowly on this terrain" & no flanking bonus & no "less/more chance to hit" depending on whether you are on higher or lower ground.

I downloaded this game since it was on sale, saw that it had overwhelmingly positive reviews and decided to give it a try. Since the game and dlc pack was so cheap I went ahead and bought the game with the dlc it provided. I have to say that this game is worth it. This is my first review here on steam and it's because this game deserves it, it deserves to be prasied because of the awesome gameplay, it's simple yet amazing visuals. This game just blows my mind. I can't get enough of it. I highly recommend that people buy it. If you're reading this review just stop and buy the game because trust me it is worth every penny.
