Reviews

“If Iron Grip: Warlord is any indication, Isotx should be considered a creative force to be reckoned with. Delivering the best aspects of first person shooters and blending the experience with RTS elements has made for an amazing combination. Iron Grip is nothing but simple fun....”
– GamesAbyss
“A very fun, innovative game. Bigger companies should take this game’s example and create things that are not only fun, but that are rarely seen in games today.”

This game is surprisingly good. The only problem is that it is very outdated. If only its developers stopped focusing on other failed projects and promoted this game properly, they'd get somewhere. This is a gem of a game, as what they did was they took tower defense, threw in some FPS, sprinkled some RTS, and wrapped the whole in a deep game world (the rest of the games have disappeared; there was Marauders and Lords of War... they all tied in with each other and you could even earn benefits between games).

In the end, if you've got some money to spare, buy this when it's on sale and just give it a single-player whirl. It's worth your time just to check it out for a few bucks. Otherwise, old maps and empty servers makes this co-op game not very co-op, unless you have a bunch of friends online with the game too.

There isn't an active community anymore which is a great shame since the game is at its best online. If you can grab a few friends to play with you this game can be great fun.

I used to play Iron Grip with my little brother quite a bit around 8 years ago. Was a great time waster (turning on the xmas option made us both laugh til our stomachs hurt).

First off this game is very not serious. To make it plain as day, this game is almost like a cross between Quake 2 and TFC (engineer class only). You earn money from shooshting (yes it's totally a word... Austin Powers 3 damnit!) bad guys who are trying to invade your... country? You use that money to magically make yourself more and more like rambo... or instead building bunker style turrets that shoosht the badguys, kinda.

Pretty much most of the game you run around using rather stiff guns to blow appart baddies, most of which run the gambit almost like a weird tower defence. Your towers you can build are pretty 'bleh' as they are easy to destroy and have terribly firing arcs. Depending on the map you will have random objectives that will annoyingly take you away from defending the base, and in most cases will cause you to die, alot.

But, once you load the game up with a few friends it suddenly becomes a riot. So if you plan to grab this game on a whim, grab a few more copies and share it with some friends.

Otherwise the toy soldiers win. And nobody likes that.

I received Iron Grip: Warlord as a gift and it was such a fun surprise for me to play - I had no preconceptions, nor read any reviews or even the game synopsis.

First recommendation: go into this game for the coop, with friends!

The gameplay is smooth - no lagging no matter how many units or what manner of chaos and mayhem is going on on my screen (this alone is amazing to me as I have a less than desirable gaming setup at the moment). It is challenging non-stop, engaging action with clever AI, hilarious game messages, heroically brutal demises, great weaponry/ defenses/ upgrades, and beautiful scene design for its time - some of the detail is really impressive. It is one of the best blends of tower defense, FPS and action gameplay in one game I've encountered.
