Maelstrom review

More apocalyptic clichés than you can handle


  • Hai-genti aliens
  • Skirmish mode is great
  • Not too formulaic


  • Filled with clichéd missions
  • Too timid
  • AI cheats often in Skirmish mode

Life after the apocalypse is going to be tough, but we think we%26rsquo;ll cope with the help of our survival kit. Buried in an old biscuit tin at the bottom of a garden we%26rsquo;ve got a pair of studded shoulder pads, an eye patch, a mohawk wig, a battered leather jacket and a rust-streaked Hummer. How did we manage to fit so many post-apocalyptic clich%26eacute;s into such a small container? Let%26rsquo;s just say we got a few tips from KDV Games.
