Great Game Ignore Whining Plebs on Difficulty
I would first like to preface the review with the fact that I have beaten every single level in Iron Marines with Taggins, the first hero, on impossible difficulty without using any consumables and only a few of the levels I thought were very hard but I was still able to do it. I have a history of playing RTS games like Starcraft2 and Total War Warhammer and this game carries a similar theme. It's not gonna hold your hand as you shut off your brain and play through for fun. You are going to have to think, practice and plan in advance or else you will not succeed. That is not something for everyone mind you but if you enjoy that type of experience Iron Marines is very rewarding. With a decently large sized roster of units and a large skill tree it's gives you a lot of room to experiment. Visually it's fantastic, just as you would expect with any of the titles by Iron Hide and it has many many silly little Easter eggs to be found (something I always appreciated the amount of effort they put into in every one of there games). The sound design is great too as the characters and units never get annoying with a varied pool of quotes when you move them over and over and all the weapons and enemy units sound great too. Over all the experience was great it was fairly easy to pick up, played and looked great, was challenging if you wanted to really challenge yourself, and rewarding to finally complete.
Great game. Ignore reviews of difficulty.
I have been a gamer since the early days of Atari, this is a fantastic game from iron hide studios. For five dollars you get a graphically rich incredible take on real-time strategy and tower defense rolled into one. Folks who are having trouble with the difficulty are probably not used to having to grind out levels or adjust strategy in wave driven games. This is absolutely necessary in a game like this. If you enjoy that sort of thing that this game is for you, if you want something that is not occasionally challenging and doesn't require you to adjust your strategy in order to win, then look elsewhere. Yes it is easier if you are able to purchase the higher level heroes, but it's more than possible to grind out boards in order to get all of the resources you need without having to pay for anything. I myself don't mind paying for the higher-level heroes, one because good game makers are in such rare supply on the App Store these days, and two I remember all too clearly what it was like to pay $80 for a 16 bit game on the Super Nintendo. The gameplay is fine even in a repetitive fashion, the graphics are incredible, there are Easter eggs everywhere and the sound is fantastic. All the things we come to expect from iron hide studios. I happened upon this while replaying the original Kingdom Rush, and I look forward to the continuation of that series as well.
Good challenge not to easy or too hard
I am a big fan of strategy games. I also know a game is fun if the challenge is big. That being said, I rate this game five stars due to its vast amount of variety. What I mean by this is even without spending a single penny on this game you are still offered a ton of hero’s and units to make a working strategy. Just like kingdom rush this game has a great sense of challenge and strategy, all though I do find this game a bit harder.
To address those people who say this game is impossible without spending money. I say to you, that when I say this game is a bit harder I mean that it took 2-4 tries to beat a level on impossible. Normally in kingdom rush I can do it first try or second if I’m unlucky. My point is that you scrubs who say this game is hard, you are simply incompetent, a strategy game, requires you to actually think and this game does a perfect job at that. If you lose it’s simply a mistake in your strategy. Improvise and retry.
I say that this game is not too hard or too easy for a reason. It’s not too easy in the sense that it doesn’t require effort to win and it’s not too hard due to it actually being beatable within 1-3 try’s. Hard for me would be taking about 6-10+ try’s to beat a level. In summary this game a good challenge that is easily beatable if you use your units and hero’s correctly.
