-Quick Review-
Frozen Synapse is a turn based strategy game where you utilize several different types of units to execute a variety of commands. Combat mechanics are based on: Direction, movement, cover, and weapon speed.
-Detailed breakdown review-
Story: I have yet to figure out what type of creature I am… in the campaign mode, I’m under the impression that I’m an artificial intelligence named “Tactics”, whoever had the bright idea of making me an AI apparently need to be shot in the foot, because I proceeded to fail the next ten attempts at the campaign.
The campaign has a total of 55 missions, this game’s appeal is in its competitive aspect, think of this game as a “modern” chess game, although the objectives can be changed from simply “capture the king” to, capture the flag, team elimination, etc.

Game Play: There are five basic units in the game: Machine Gun, Shotgun, Sniper, Grenade Launcher, and Rocket Launcher. Each have different abilities, for example the shot gunner can run fast and does is the fastest at weapon draw, while the Sniper is slow to shoot, but can shoot from almost across the whole map and moves very slowly.
As you get into the game the different units make more sense and you start to learn how to implement them accordingly. I practiced against the computer on campaign… which admittedly felt like bashing my face against a brick wall, but eventually strategies started to stick.

Achievements: There are 16 achievements for this game, one of those achievements requires beating a player named “bin” who is apparently no longer playing… Ergo, this achievement is broken in my book. The rest of the achievements are very straight forward and require either winning a game mode, or doing something specific in the game.
The two hardest achievements are probably “get to level 100” and “Beat the campaign”. Hardest might be the wrong term though, maybe “the most time consuming”? Regardless, there is a fair amount of activity in this game if you’re going after achievements.

Price: Frozen Synapse commonly goes on steam sales, so that is when I would suggest purchasing the game, at the time that I’m writing this review the game is actually 88% off for the next 43 hours. At the standard price of $24.99 that’s probably too high of a price for a strategy game like Frozen Synapse for most people, you can easily pump 20-40 hours into the game… again; if you already know you like strategy games and enjoy learning new ones.

Conclusion: Again to recap: the story/campaign wasn’t particularly intersecting for me, the game play is very precise (a requirement for strategy games), achievements are “meh”, the price is high unless on sale.
I’ve enjoyed playing this game, I would suggest it to people who *already know* they like strategy games. When you first jump into this game it’s definitely daunting to comprehend what’s going on. The game itself tries to help with a lack luster tutorial, but in the end it doesn’t prepare you for the cruel reality of “campaign”. (Unless you happen to be a young strategic genius, who in that case, go back to your business classes and leave my review alone.)

I love it when a plan comes together, and Frozen Synapse is my favourite turn-based game.

It’s similar to ground operations of X-COM, for example, but in purer, simpler form. There’s no base management, inventory, RPG elements. All units of the same type have identical stats. And, unlike X-COM, RNG does not make much of an impact on outcomes of firefights, if any. The typical ‘chance to hit’ mechanic is replaced with ‘time to hit’. If enemy unit is in cover, your unit will need more time to hit him; if enemy units runs into your stationary unit, your unit will shoot first because he had a bonus to this timer, and the enemy had a penalty for running. Thus, if you can predict what your opponent is about to do, you can be 100% sure what will happen when they encounter one of your units. If.

The best thing about this game is the ability to plot your opponent’s expected moves and run a simulation that will show what will happen if you do this, and they do that. You can run as many iterations of this as you like before submitting a turn.

In multiplayer FS becomes a game of psychology, misdirection, bluffs and double bluffs. You have to be able to make accurate predictions, but also behave unpredictably, be stealthy, feed misleading information to your foe. And make plans that account for every eventuality.

The maps are random and asymmetrical, but scoring takes this into account. Plus, you can use premade symmetrical maps or make your own. You can even play a flat version of cs_office if you’re so inclined.

There’s a long single player campaign with interesting missions and a cyberpunk-themed story. You can play it in coop, too. And it’s fairly hard. Only 0.6% of players have completed the campaign according to Steam achievement stats. But two of the missions at the end are somewhat glitchy and many people may have quit just because of these.

Downsides: I’m not too fond of the graphics. 3D perspective makes it hard to see whether you have line of sight sometimes, I would prefer to have a flat 2D mode. Thankfully, there’s a line of sight tool that works like a ruler. There’s no offline chat in multiplayer, which is disappointing for a game you can play via e-mail.

Red DLC adds shield units (really cool) and the ability to host coop games and play single-player campaign with a friend, among other things. You can use the new features in multiplayer even if your opponent/partner doesn’t have the DLC. So I’d get the Complete Pack while it’s on −88% sale.

Absolutely fantastic title. Basically chess with guns. Rich with tactical possibilities and strategic depth. Great online play, whether looking for blitz or correspondence style games. Stellar soundtrack, something I actually listen to on my phone.

The single player has an incredible story, filled with a unique world and interesting characters. The gameplay is quite unique, as you and your opponent input your commands at the same time to guide actions within 5 second increments. The interface however is clunky, and the multiplayer has a severe slippery slope effect in many modes, where losing even one unit can put you in too far a disadvantage to make a comeback.

The Red expansion adds more single player missions, a new unit type, more multiplayer modes, and most importantly allows you to play through the single-player campaign cooperatively.

This is a great game for the campaign (through singleplayer or coop), but fails as a reasonable multiplayer experience.

One of my favorite strategy games of all time. The game plays like a more complicated chess match relying on your ability to predict your enemy's movement and out maneuver them.

No?

A jumbled mess of a story, but it's a neat simulator, I guess.

I really want to like this game, I like the minimal graphics and turn based tactics squad shooter mechanics but at the end of the day there are a lot of problems too. The music is repetitive and not interesting, I don't care for the story or characters but the most important complaint I have is that the game has glitches. There are no room for mistakes in this game, when you win you feel really good, when you loose (by your own fault) you feel like you want to try and do better BUT; when the game makes a mistake which causes a loss it's very irritating. I've had it happen a few times and I'm just not wanting to invest more time in something that's just going to make me angry.

For example, if you send a guy too close to a corner, he'll just stick to it rather than going to his waypoint. Once, I wanted to use a guy as a meat sack and the game wouldn't let me! I places him directly in front of the bullet and it just went thru him, the sniper didn't even take any time to re aim; otherwise I would have flanked him and won the level. There is other cases where the guy just aims wherever he want's it seems.

I would say this game has a very good premise and idea but it was not executed as precisely as a game in this genre needs to be.

Frozen Synapse may be best suited for hardcore strategy gamers. The controls seemed simple after the tutorial but the I found the actual game play and UI to be confusing. But maybe I'm just not good a turn-based strategy...

Frozen Synapse - Raymond K. Turcotte

I swear this may be one of the only darn games that you need to play the tutorial to understand how to play the game. But besides that, this game was and is excellent. I heard of this game from the PC Gamer magazine when it first came out. I won this game, I wouldn’t buy it. Over 20$ is too much for me (My opinion whtevr) Thanks to the 2014 holiday I was able to achieve this game I was looking forward to playing. It was exactly what I thought it would be.

It's like playing chess with a SWAT team, combined with an RTS and a psychology game.
Easy to get into, hard to master, GREAT soundtrack.
Definitely worth it if on sale.

A really original simultaneous turn-based tactics, set in a cyberworld of a distant future.
Even if usually I'm not too much into this kind of games, I really enjoyed it for its simple yet complex mechanics. The rules are really basic, but since the whole game is about predicting opponent's moves, and you can never, never know for sure what another human being is thinking, and that's why it shines in multiplayer more than anything else, even though it has a lenghty and worthy campaign.
Multiplayer is really versatile too, since you can just leave your turn and play another match (or even another game altogether) while you wait your opponent's; you can even set the game to send you an email when a new turn is awaiting you.
Also, is worth nothing that replay of your matches are automatically saved on the servers, and you can watch even other's really easily; and there's an amazing little option that uploads your matches to your YouTube channel.
Graphics are really simple, but they do their job, and the soundtrack is astonishing good.

Just try the demo and complete the tutorial, you'll get an idea if this is or not a game for you, you could be surprised.

It's a shame when people have only AAA games in their mind and ignore hidden gems such as Frozen Synapse. The game is not for anyone - that can be said about any game out there. But in this case what I mean is that unlike other games where you just rush and kill everything in sight, in Frozen Synapse you must take a slower and more tactical approach. You are in command of a squad of soldiers, each equipped with different weapons, from shotguns through sniper rifles all the way to rocket launchers. The game has a good tutorial which can make a person understand the basic and more advanced tactics - from the standard take cover tactics to the more advanced search and destroy where each member of the squad covers the blind spot of the other and thus advance in their search for the enemies. Afterwards people can chose whether they want to advance to the campaign, practice against the computer in skirmish matches or go online against other people around the world. This is a game which would be more suited to the gamers which favor brains and strategy over the standard gamers which know only how to react and rely on reflexes while gaming ... If you are of the first type - I recommend buying this, if you are from the latter one - prove us wrong, joins us and show us ! :)

Frozen Synapse is a game about raw tactics and learning from your mistakes.

Frozen Synapse is an asynchronous turn-based strategy game that puts heavy emphasis on strategy over probability during both single player and multiplayer matches. The game bares down to the raw basics of a strategy game while keeping elements of strategy that make the game absolutely splendid to keep playing even when you've struck out hard against your opponent.

The game features mechanics based around unit positioning and planning your actions via the simulation feature (a mechanic in game that allows you to run a simulation of what would happen if certain units moved around the battlefield) where a well planned move could win turn the match in your favor or conversely cause it to slip from your grasp.

Units in combat are rather simple to understand which makes them user friendly with a bit of practice. The interface is very user friendly (although it might be a bit overwhelming at first since there are a fair bit of options to choose for a unit).

The Red DLC adds an additional single player campaign, additional songs for the soundtrack (which is phenomenal), and a unique unit that can change a match if used correctly.

To summarize: Frozen Synapse is a phenomenal turn-based strategy game that will attract the attention of almost anybody looking for a strategy game based around tactics as well as those looking for a good multiplayer game that also happens to be a strategy game.

Frozen Synapse is a great turn-based game with stirring tactical multiplayer battles that reward clever thinking. This game perfectly demonstrates the fact that looks aren't everything.
