this game doesn´t deserve the term "tactics" in its name because all in all it´s just a boring, repetitive and monotonous grind on the same small maps (some are even tiny!) over and over again. it´s F2P but don´t waste your precious time grinding this game, it´s not worth it. if you want to play an entertaining and challenging round based tactics-game, go and spend 5 bucks on xcom enemy unknown if it´s on sale.

This started off as a pretty solid Free-to-Play game!

Pros:
-Simple gameplay.
-No special tricks with the interface. Point to the one of the two actions that you want to do (move, shoot), confirm, execute.
-Simple damage and cover mechanics.

Cons:
-The more you upgrade, the more you die.
-Want any "meaningful" upgrades? It's no longer a "Free-to-Play"
-String of repetitive campaign maps with no real story or purpose linking them together.

Description of my experience:
Loaded up my two-man team, killed a few enemy, got some upgrades, and "proceeded to die in a loud, groutesque, military manner" (name that movie).

For just about every worthwhile upgrade, you'll pay actual money. This isn't like most F2P games where if you're willing, you'll have to grind about ten times as long to earn upgrades. Nope, that option isn't even available.

The other thing that is pretty irksome is the fact that you will NEVER outgun your enemy. I upgraded my free chap with a rifle. So did the enemy, and he brought two friends.

I upgraded my second free chap with a machine gun... yep, you guessed it! The enemy upgraded too, and brought more of his friends! By the way, the extra kit that your guys carry it slows them down, but it does not slow down the enemy. The more you upgrade, the more you'll die.

It's a shame. I think I would have gotten a few more hours out of this one.

I played this game quite a bit on the iPad. Tried it on the PC, thinking I could link my game to both devices. That never worked for me and playing 2 separate games felt like a waste. I enjoyed the game a bit until I realised how pointless upgrading is. If you get a better pistol, the enemy gets the same one. If you buy a sniper, the enemy gets a sniper. Buy a med kit, meet a med kit. What's the point, then? Most missions are easiest with the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ starter gear, since the AI seem to utilize then less effectively. In the end I just didn't bother.

The single-player is not bad for a free game. I'm going to have to recommend Frontline Tactics because it kept me entertained for more than 20 hours and I didn't even pay a cent.

I never played the multiplayer because I think it might have some P2W aspects, so I can't say anything about the multiplayer.
