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.

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!

Part of a cheap bundle I didn't expect much of, yet it's a surprisingly fun shooter that needs to be remade.

In this one you play an alien going around in a hovercraft destroying enemy human tanks and other human targets. Rudimentary weapons. Clunky gameplay. Graphics are dated. Pick it up in a bundle only (like I did)...

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.

I bought this for the bundled Incoming original game honestly, and I don't regret it. The game works fine on windows 7, no major or minor bugs yet. Just don't alt tab seems that breaks something in the coding.
Its still the good old game it was. The graphics are dated admitedly and the resolution will bother some people but if you're here for the nostalgia trip and good gameplay you will find what you're looking for.

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. =)

I have mixed feelings about this game. Its a good classic shooter for its time where as you've got 3 types of vehicles to choose from, with the slight repetive missions it seems like the best Classic Shooter for its time. Honestly I thought we were going to play an FPS as a soldier but I guess I kinda read "Ground Forces" wrong but hey, it still seemed Ok. Now I'm not recommending it because most people would find it repetitive and ongoing with the same thing over and over again as well with the massive jumps in diffilculty that is just insane, Easy is too easy but Medium changes everything to the point where it would be hard and hard would be insaner so its really hard to get what you enjoy. But if your into Classic shooters, I'm all for it!
