About This Game

Prepare for one of the most action packed-shooters in PC gaming history! Every level is full of enemies and targets for you to destroy! In the first game you will battle alien forces intent on wiping out the Human civilization. As a soldier you will use various vehicles and defend vital bases on Earth against the invaders' forces. In the second one you will become a soldier of the alien species and protect your home world from the forces of the Human armada.

Both games were famous for fast-paced action, hordes upon hordes of enemies and incredible, cool and satisfying gameplay – this pack is perfect both for hard core action shooter gamers and “Sunday school” casuals. Tons of fun included.

Buy this for the normal Incoming. It's fun for some Semi-mindless action. That game is worth $10 on it's own.

♥♥♥♥ Incoming Forces.

Says I have played 2 hours, which is interesting seeing as this game does not work. It does run in the background until you manually close it out through task manager. This game has lots of nostalgia attached to it, but I cannot recommend a game that does not work and steam will not let me get a refund for it.

An arcade space shooter which is a pure classic. Comes along with the original Incoming too which is equally good. Gameplay is very fun and easy to get into. =)

Thankfully the original Incoming is included as well and that still holds up now. "Forces" sucked then as it does now, don't bother with that. The original Incoming has awesome atmosphere, tense music and fun and straight forward action where you fight off waves. You control a different type of vehicle in each Phase, which is one of the things that make the original game so awesome! The controls are a little clunky and oversensitive on Keyboard which a Joystick or Gamepad would rectify but I don't have a Joystick these days and my Gamepad did not work. Graphically it looks worse now than it used to, not necessarily because of aging (though that too) but because I can't use my native resolution and I could swear it used OpenGL or nGlide or something to smooth things out while now it looks more like it's software renderer. In other words it makes the game needlessly blurry and pixelated compared to the original gaming experience back then. I wish there'd be a HD Version of this, or a Remake though whoever does that probably messes it up with useless modern details and mechanics. All in all, I recommend for short bursts of retro fun!

Personal rating: "Good" = 3/5

PROS:
+ fun gameplay
+ big range of vehicles
+ great vehicle controls
+ nice story
+ cheesy B-movie cutscenes
+ Incoming is in the bundle

CONS:
- graphic glitches & clipping
- somewhat short game time
- cheesy B-movie cutscenes
- Incoming has poor compatibility, bad graphic settings & mouse control issues

Comment:
First I will mention the bundled Incoming game, the parent of Incoming Forces. It was an amazing game at the time it came out and was lots of fun. You play as a human soldier defending Earth from aliens. However it aged pretty badly, not only in graphics sector but in compatibility. While I was able to run the game I always had some upper bar or other obstruction over the top of the game screen. On top of that the controls are terribly clunky especially with mouse so just go full keyboard control instead. So perhaps try it out but move on to the much better sequel incoming Forces where this time you are in control of an alien pilot. The story is not complex but somewhat cute and quite enjoyable. The range of vehicles expands, you get to control turrets, tanks, artillery and a range of air fighters. Missions are replayable separately and have a High Score system. The transition between vehicles is really smooth and controls are great. The graphics are a bit clunky but that does not matter. However only 16 (mostly short) missions is not much. Overall a fun shooter with a big range of vehicles and nice (although cheesy) story. Recommended.

Game will not run correctly on a modern PC without some serious troubleshooting. I got the game free and cannot recommend it to anyone. The amount of work to make this run is silly.

The Game does not even show up (Windows 10 64Bit) however it's running and visible in Task Manager and also Steam says it's running, so at least the Trading Cards will drop, i will let the Process run and then use Task Manager to kick it out of Memory... But this outcome is probably the worst possible for a Game, even if it is from 2002, i mean all you see is the Desktop and there is not even Sound... LOL!

Now this game, I only bought it for the original Incoming as many others did as well, so I will review the first game as i didn't bother to play much into Forces.

Short review: Just get it if you like fast paced Arcade Shooters with an okay story.

Long review: The game itself is a pretty straight forward Attack/Defense game where you can control various air and ground vehicles, and sometimes also can control several units in a strategy minigame in the story. While the Arcade mode is what the name says, just flying around with an airplane and collecting points. Imagine the game being 'Alien Invaders' with 3D graphics and more variation on vehicles to choose from. The story btw is nothing which will blow you away, just the generic 'Aliens invade Earth' story, but the way the gameplay works here, i recommend a gamepad, best experience, and your triggers won't work if you play with xbox pad, but other than that you don't need much buttons anyways.
