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.”

An interesting mix of tower defence and first-person shooter, Iron Grip doesn't excel at either but is decent overall. I got this as part of a bundle deal and didn't have high hopes for it. I initially wanted more tower defence and less manual shooting but I started to enjoy it once I grasped the basics. The multiplayer isn't completely dead yet either, I found a few people playing on one of the default servers.

Multiplayer game that's never had a player base.

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.

Propaganda radio FTW 9/10

ANOTHER COOL LANE DEFENSE GAME. FPS with light tower defense gameplay and character upgrading, made on the good ol quake 3 engine w/ bunny hopping and errything. Would love it if more friends played with me

Fun little indie title...I highly recommend that anyone picks it up when its on sale. Expect about 5-10 hours of gameplay for it. Not the best graphics, but it does mix the "One vs. The World" FPS with turret defense RTS pretty well. The multiplayer could be fun as hell, but lag and connectivity issues keep it down. I'd give it a solid 7/10.
