General Information

Available on:PCJul 16, 2015

Developer: Slitherine Group

Publisher: Slitherine

Genres: Strategy, Turn-Based Strategy

The Empire of the Machines is threatening the entire universe. The League of Aliens and the U.N.E. (United Nations of Earth) have banded together to defend the galaxy from the invader. Battles are raging everywhere, but it is inside the twisting corridors of the Machines underground production facilities, that the tactical upper hand is taken. And the war is won. Originally designed by Clark Browning, Marco Pecota and Derrick Villeneuve, Legions of Steel is a tactical board game where players fight battles in a dark and dangerous environment. French Developer Studio Nyx have managed to re-create the deep and challenging set of rules, while adding slick 3D models, a clever and accessible UI and a load of new features.

I hate to see a game like Legions of Steel fall short, because it's the kind of gameplay experience that I typically appreciate. It offers a challenge and requires careful planning, but it's missing mechanical depth.

A sturdy conversion of a robust set of board game rules. The top-down, corridor-heavy setting is reminiscent of Space Hulk, but Legions of Steel places more emphasis on equal fire-fights between the competing factions.

The core of Legions of Steel – not the tutorial, not the barely present premise, not the shoddy presentation – is strong. The Machines could pose a bit more of a challenge, but the scenarios and the conundrums I needed to solve tickled my brain in all the right places. It's so spartan, though. It's missing that spark of personality and something that ties all the scenarios together. And it's in desperate need of a great deal of polish.

Legions of Steel is an average game that really doesn't have the legs to keep player interest for long. While good for die hard Space Hulk fans and those unfamiliar with tactical strategy games, experienced tactical strategy players may find the game too basic.
