Non so neanche quando l'ho preso, sarà stato in un qualche bundle tempo fa.
Comunque, in questo gioco si interpreta un soldatino della legione straniera che deve affrontare varie ondate di nemici e impedirgli di distruggere un certo obiettivo, oppure semplicemente di sopravvivere uccidendole tutte.

Il gameplay è molto scarno, ci sono 3 tipi di nemici (normali, kamikaze e col lanciamissili), ogni missione dura 10 minuti (meno se uccidiamo tutte le ondate prima) al termine dei quali viene automaticamente superata. La campagna è formata da soli 6-7 livelli, con vari livelli di difficoltà che determinano la resistenza dei nemici e la nostra, nonché il punteggio nella leaderboard e la ricompensa che si ottiene. Con il denaro così accumulato si possono comprare nuove armi (da sbloccare salendo di livello) e qualche skin e cosette trascurabili per il soldato.

Graficamente ha uno stile molto semplice ma che per il tipo di gioco non ci sta male, personalmente ho beccato un sacco di artefatti grafici da epilessia a schermo intero, mentre in finestra andava bene.
Non dura molto, si riesce a fare il 100% in poco più di 4 ore, però tutto sommato è un gioco abbastanza divertente per qualche partita a tempo perso, seppur coi suoi limiti.

I got this game from an indie bundle and I was quite keen on it before installing it. That Lego-style TPS caught my attention and got a good feeling about it.

What a fool I was.

This is surely one of the worst indie games I've ever played. Everything makes me feel now that I've been scammed, betrayed. I absolutely approve the indie game generation (and actually I'm more into them than into triple-A games) but this is a paradigmatical way of "let's make something, it might give us money". And sure, you can say "hey, don't be so bad to them, they're probably a very little company", but this becomes senseless when you see that games such as Braid, Hotline Miami, VVVVVV, Super Meat Boy, FEZ and many others have been made by 1-2 people each and they're absolutely astonishing. So this is not an excuse.

I was running this game on the maximum settings (it doesn't have any high requirements anyway) and oh my god, the number of mistakes is so huge you should see it for yourself. ALL shadows were going crazy, in EVERY single map. Almost all textlines somehow got crazy too and were IMPOSSIBLE to read, like in a super low resolution. So actually I had to guess what every option did by pressing it. If you don't believe it I do not have any inconvinient in uploading screenshots.

The soundtrack was... what could I say? There's only 1 track. Or maybe not. I don't know. If there's more than one, then all of them feels the same. The same boring. Even on the menus. And even though I've listened the same music all way through my total gameplay, I've already forgotten how it sounds.

The AI. Oh my damn God, this is one of the most ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ AI's I've faced in a very long time. It can be fooled the SAME WAY on Easy than on Extreme difficulty. ALL enemies follow some patterns that after 1-2 waves will be absolutely predictible. Jesus, there was one time where an enemy was facing me but without shooting a single bullet. I stared at him for ten minutes. TEN MINUTES. He didn't do a thing. Again, you won't even image how sad the enemies react until you test it.

The game is also astonishingly short. Yet it felt long, because of how boring it was. All chapters were wave-based, and since this game is 1 player-only (together with a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ AI), guess how similar everything looked like. The only stage I actually enjoyed was the chicken massacre one.

This was one of those VERY FEW games I ended up playing only for achievements, which were surprisingly rewarding. Yet some of them were unfairly grind-based, condemning you to stay more hours than you wanted to. Since I like achievements and hate to leave things undone, this was quite a pain even if it only took me about 4h to unlock all of them.

Overall, do yourself a favour and DO NOT buy or play this garbage. I've been critically disappointed and I'm sure you have plenty of better games in your library. Which isn't hard at all. Only play this game if you wanna check my words and see how bad this game is.

2/10 would uninstall again

I can't help but feel a little conflicted in recommending this game. I've played games by independent developers that were less buggy, far more polished, and offered way deeper gameplay...and they were free. Everything about this game just reeks of shareware, including the stupid enemy AI, glitched collision detection, horrible physics, and a rudimentary attempt at integrating cover that just doesn't go anywhere. Nevertheless, the original installment of Foreign Legion is one of the better games out there for wave-based stress relief. If you approach it with the idea that you're going to have some brainless fun for a few minutes, and if you abandon the very notion that this game will offer you the slightest bit of challenge or complexity, you can squeeze a few hours of occasional enjoyment out of this title.
