-Bare-bones unit types and purchase options, but extremely well balanced for hex-based play. No rushes of one unit type mean you can have various different force combinations for more replayability and satisfying tactics.
-Interface is just fine. Without pointless multiple unit abilities and in a turn-based mode (with undo function, ty) you don't need three hands to operate the game, making it ideal for beer and pretzels play with a buddy.
-Underwhelmingly scripted, and with maps that are well-balanced but all fairly similar, Massive Assault leaves you longing for "Military Madness", the classic hex-based computer/console game that this title tries and fails to live up to.
-Few maps and a short, linear campaign mode leave you pretty much done with the single player options for this game after several hours.
Verdict: Moderately fun turn-based hex game, if somewhat derivative and unplotted, Massive Assault is fun for a few go-rounds, and at around $4-8 on Amazon is well worth it's dollar value in entertainment.
* Excellent tactical-level artificial intelligence. The computer will be very challenging in scenarios and campaigns, where each side starts with a predetermined number of units. With a recent release of 12 new free scenarios, the learning curve here is quite low, allowing for hour of fun, even for a novice.
* Great balance. It shows that this game was originally a board game. There are few units, and the maps are very carefully designed. Both these features allow for very exciting battles, and no exploits.
* Great graphics. The graphics are unsurpassed, as far as turn-based strategies go. I loved just to stroll around, wathing the battles from up close and different angles.
* Replay feature. You'll be allowed to save the replay of your battle and share it with others. It's fun and a great learning tool to see how others are doing.
* Multiplayer adds more to the replay value of the game.
* The strategic-level A.I. is weak. Once you fight world wars where you have to conquer countries and build your armies from scratch, the A.I. is easily exploitable and beatable.
* Sound and voiceovers. These are not up to par with other turn-based games, even those that are cheaper than Massive Assault, such as Moonbase Commander.
* Missing features. Currently, the multiplayer has one weakness: the loosing party often doesn't submit a turn, stalling the game and making it impossible to finish. This is only one of several features that the developers forgot to include.
Massive Assault is still the best turn-based strategy game I played this year (which also says something about the niche). I would recommend it to everybody who enjoys sitting back and thinking about the strategy, but younger players, especially those who prefer quick fingers over brain exercise may want to avoid this title.
But when I got this game and installed it everything seemed to go fine until I tried to launch the game. Clicked the start and nothing happened. Waited for a few minutes but nothing changed. Not sure if its a mfg problem or from the seller but I will be buying from WT from now on.
