Escalation is a downward spiral.

A nuclear armageddon is no one’s dream scenario. So choose your steps carefully, it’s a small path between war and peace. FIRST STRIKE is a great strategy simulation featuring snappy gameplay and an intuitive interface that makes dropping the big one as easy as ABC. But be sure to take the right measures to guarantee your people’s safety.

Pick one of the big nuclear players – from known Superpowers to an upstart hellraiser like North Korea – and plan your strategy wisely: Limited but clever options let you as the leader of your superpower steer your nation’s fate: Expand to other countries, build bombs or debuild in order to restructure your arsenal. Or use research to widen your options, such as: Ability to act quicker and build bigger bombs, better recon on your enemies actions, automated self-defense-sequences and many more.

Whether you’re a bloodthirsty warmonger or a tree-hugging hippie – it’s time to put your cards on the table. A quick and fun game with beautiful graphics, FIRST STRIKE shows you how little it takes to heat things up. With the tip of your finger you can control the destiny of the precious and vulnerable rock floating through space, the rock we call mothership Earth.

I can’t even think about anything to express what I feel about the game these days

The game is broken. You can’t quit the game. It won’t let you. And sometimes when you want to restart. It also won’t let you. The only way to get back to the loading screen is to delete the tab and load the game. I think I was talking to much hate in the other review so I give this a 4 star but please fix the game. Also it seems that the country’s are getting more aggressive (Russia) (Europe) (Israel) also can you add Washington DC. I don’t think it’s fair that you put other country’s capital and not the USA’s. Please add Washington DC that would be nice, but overall the game is great. Also other city’s for the USA to add please ( Miami, Houston, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas, Seattle and Williamsburg’s. I know that might be asking to much but think about it. You barely add updates. If you could add this that would be great. But most importantly add Washington DC. I don’t think it’s fair that you add the capitals of country’s that are not in the game then add capitals to the country’s that are in the game. PLEASE ADD THIS.

Great Game, but with a Fatal Flaw

So, this game is one of the most intense, yet poetic games to date. The message it portrays is so true: War is a dangerous game, the only way to win is to not play at all. The controls are revolutionary. The only problem is (Ahem, Devs) is that you can’t unlock new nations or super weapons. You have to beat certain game modes as specific countries to unlock super weapons and countries. However, after you win a game, for the first few times it takes you to a screen displaying casualties, how many megatons of explosives, etc. But after that, it doesn’t take you the screen, leaving you in the theatrical segment that it always displays before the screen, but it does not take you there. Ever. So, after you win, you are forced to quit the game, therefore destroying the achievements you would have gotten. Therefore, you cannot progress in the game.

Good game some issues

To begin it’s a good game all in all. But there are some issues. So let’s start off with the weird day night cycle. I don’t see any reason for it and it makes it impossible to see your territory and your enemies. Next thing. There are more weapons then just Cruisers IRBMs and ICBMs. There are land forces maybe not the best against a nuke but they still make a difference. 3rd and final thing I noticed is at some point your just stomping on the remains of a nation which brings me back to the weird day night cycle thing you can’t see anything.
