    <strong>[ Announcement ]</strong>

    <a href="http://www.starsentineltactics.com/flash/index.php" target="_blank"><strong>Star Sentinel Tactics</strong></a> just made the move to <a href="http://www.matrixgames.com/news/734/Star.Sentinel.Tactics.Is.Released" target="_blank">Matrix</a> after an original release on Impulse.
    <blockquote>Matrix Games, Tri Synergy (www.trisynergy.com) and Star Sentinel Tactics Inc. (www.starsentineltactics.com) are proud to announce the release of Star Sentinel Tactics! Star Sentinel Tactics is a turn-based tactical game that puts you in command of a squad of elite United Alliance marines - the Star Sentinels - as they battle to stop a race of bloodthirsty reptilians launching a devastating attack on our Galaxy!

    David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said &ldquo;Star Sentinel Tactics delivers solid turn-based tactical gameplay in a classic sci-fi setting. Gamers looking to set their blasters to kill and head into space need look no further!&rdquo;

    Star Sentinel Tactics takes the classic turn-based tactical combat strategy games, and brings them bang up to date with 3d graphics, realistic line-of-sight, an engaging story, and an array of new weapons and enemies. This is sci-fi tactical combat at its purest with all the focus on leading your soldiers through varied and engaging tactical situations to ultimately save life as we know it!</blockquote>

    Has anyone actually bought/played this yet? It excites me deep down inside, but I want Codex/TCancer opinions before I splash out.

    In your head, obviously
    I think we all agreed already that this:

    is a no-go for most of us. At best a game like this can equal Incubation, but then again we have incubation already...

    Better have a look here, just discovered it today:

    Would like to have opinions as well, but since its release is due in a few weeks I doubt anyone will have informed opinions so far.

    Fair enough, I enjoy the strategic layer and I do think these games benefit greatly from it, but my favourite aspect's always been the tactical combat itself, and I certainly won't overlook any of the few games released these days that incorporate it. If that's been pulled off well, I'm definitely willing to give it a go, and as someone who dabbles in modding, the toolset aspect intrigues me. Hopefully there'll be a demo up at some point.
