GamersInfo.net has posted a review of the PC version of DEFCON, Introversion Software's RTS which allows players to dabble in the world destroying fun of global thermonuclear war. GamersInfo.net recommended DEFCON to fans of strategy and multiplayer games.
From the review:
DEFCON plays out over several stages, ranging through the stages of warfare - from DEFCON 5 (peacetime) to DEFCON 1 (WWIII). The first stage is the time you deploy your troops, and then for the next rounds you must set their paths to where you want them to be, deploy your defenses and hinder your enemy indirectly. There are only five units in the game, a stealth bomber plane, a fighter jet, a submarine, a battleship and a carrier. Each unit is perfectly balanced and regulated, and they work exactly in tandem with one another to create more carnage than you could ever possibly imagine. Ambrosia Software will be releasing the Mac version of DEFCON. Check out the rest of the review at the link below.
Gamers Info: DEFCON Review
Tactics are a definite necessity in DEFCON - it's a game about using your brain, not just building a huge blob of warriors and running in there. For every action there is a reaction, and because of this it's HUGELY satisfying when you see a 'fleet' of nukes flying past your enemy's borders unhindered, because you've simultaneously sent in a squadron of fighters and bombers to distract their air defense batteries. Having said this, the feeling you get when you win the game isn't, when you think about it, a nice one. You're simulating slaughter, shooting fish in a barrel, and the faint glow and hum of your target's part of the world as nuclear winter falls is vaguely sickening.
