Armageddon Empires review

Rule the aftermath with an iron-fistful of cards


  • Engaging combat system

  • Interface sucks
  • Maps a bit boring looking
  • Tutorial not helpful

Vladimir Kost, our ablest general, was assassinated 12 turns ago. Since his death, Kost’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’t be smiling, yet we are. We’re smiling because this is one of the best strategy games we’ve played in ages. Oh, we’re also smiling because Valentine, our favourite saboteur, has just sneaked a briefcase nuke into the Mutant capital.
