The Slacker's Guide has posted a review of DropTeam, the mechanized combat title from Battlefront.com. The game allows players to battle it out with others online in Sci-Fi themed armored vehicle combat.

From the review:

There are no super-vehicles to be had here or ultimate weapons to be fired. Like anything, there are strengths and weaknesses to each vehicle, players fighting with machine guns, artillery rounds and lasers while maneuvering across variable terrain (trees, small ditches and hills make all the difference). Combine this with realistic physics, cool sound work and graphics/terrain that are on par with some of the best titles out there and you have a compelling real time military strategy title.

Military titles are nothing without tactics and DropTeam actually has some extremely interesting functions that can be performed. In addition to strictly combat units, reconnaissance, command and defensive units can be called in. Players can help hold a line by planting automated turrets and land mines while a clever mix of vehicles such as long-range artillery and fast, short-range vehicles can help slow an enemy advance and achieve long term goals. It's finding the right blend that proves to be fun and this could turn into an extremely fun title for network play wherein two teams collaborate closely with each other.

The full review is available at the link below.
