After the Team 17 worms come the end-time fighters of Future Tactics for turn-based action duel. Warrior Low, his family and other companions fight back in 19 missions of fierce aliens that have invaded our earth. Up to five heroes are under your command per mission: You move them within an action radius and give the monsters a broadside with a shotgun, assault rifle or grenade launcher. But the heroes also have a few tricks up their sleeve. The father can, for example, change position with enemies that are far away, and explosive chain reactions can be triggered with targeted shots at dynamite boxes – for example, whoever drives away several enemies with one shot reveals new options.
The arenas such as the motorway bridge and dam are completely destructible: every impact leaves a crater in its wake, after skillful shots rocks or cars tumble down slopes. So you can roll over your enemies without visual contact or bury three aliens at once. Such tricks are essential for survival: Depending on the level, the monsters will advance indefinitely or run into your arms with explosive charges on their backs. A variety of mission objectives provide variety: in the crossfire you protect the demolition expert, have to reach an escape point or conquer an alien position. Luckily, your protégés will learn something new over the course of the adventure. Collected upgrades improve the penetration, accuracy and mobility of your unit. In addition to the story mode, your training and individual matches play against the CPU or a friend. Xbox gamers can also compete online against each other. Otherwise, the versions hardly differ.
