Macworld has posted a new review of Frozen Synapse, a turn based tactical game from Mode 7 Games. The game features both single and multiplayer action, a variety of guns, hand crafted maps, and a map editor. Macworld gave Frozen Synapse a score of 4 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

The ideal way to experience Frozen Synapse is to start multiple games, play a turn in one, hop to the next one that requires your attention, then hop back, and so on. This way the game is still methodical, but you always have something to do while your opponent is figuring out his next move. In some situations, it might be several hours before you get to play the next turn in a particular match. This might sound odd, but itís not an issue if you're approaching this game with the appropriate mindset. You have many other players and a lengthy single player campaign to keep you busy until then, and once youíre familiar with the mechanics you never feel lost when youíre dropped back into an ongoing match, even if itís been days since your last turn.

Itís a unique experience first and foremost because of the deep and infinitely repayable tactical gameplay, but almost equally impressive is the smooth, user-friendly networking infrastructure which fosters the online competition that is the heart of the game.
