Jan 8, 2008

Vladimir Kost, our ablest general, was assassinated 12 turns ago. Since his death, Kost%26rsquo;s Kommandos, the ragtag collection of men and mecha that single-handedly saw off the Xenopod menace, has suffered defeat after defeat. Now they wait for the Mutant assault that will finish them. Things look hopeless; we shouldn%26rsquo;t be smiling, yet we are. We%26rsquo;re smiling because this is one of the best strategy games we%26rsquo;ve played in ages. Oh, we%26rsquo;re also smiling because Valentine, our favourite saboteur, has just sneaked a briefcase nuke into the Mutant capital.
