Frozen Synapse's main selling point is its solid and somewhat innovative strategic gameplay. It scratches an area of the brain that most strategy games dance around without ever quite hitting. But with mediocre visuals and very weak storytelling, the...

Frozen Synapse is a great turn-based game with stirring tactical multiplayer battles that reward clever...

By PC Advisor on 80

One of the freshest takes on turn-based strategy in recent times, and remarkably manages to be almost as strong a singleplayer game as a multiplayer one....

Rainbow Six Meets Tron Meets Chess. Laser Squad Nemesis Meets The Matrix. Fire Emblem Meets Call of Duty Meets Uplink. There are really no games I can directly compare Frozen Synapse to. It MUST be played. If you’re a strategy game fan who hasn’t...

An elegant game of pure tactics and psychology, won by wits instead of reflexes. Good against AI, great with...

Instead of the drawn-out affairs so common to the turn-based strategy genre, Frozen Synapse delivers brisk tactical encounters that are loaded with risk and excitement. The subtle tension that builds as strategic plans are hashed out and executed...

Frozen Synapse may look simple, but it’s a powerful tactical combat simulator. Players control remote humaniod combat units called nodes, as they fight it out across a variety of random level types. In every level, single player and multi, the levels...

Indie games come in all shapes and forms, but while many offer creative designs and experiences to those who are willing to look for them, just as many can be a bit derivative of old designs. That isn't the case with Frozen Synapse, a game that...

Last year I took a look at Mode 7 Games' tactical shooter Frozen Synapse, noting its uniqueness and depth, but lack of polish. 13 months later, the studio has released the game to the public, polished it up a bit, and added in a 55 mission single...

At spille Frozen Synapse på en tablet (kan også fås til PC) er som at putte hånden i en perfekt handske. Ved første blik virker det dog ikke så specielt.Det Tron-inspirerede design er flot, men ikke opsigtsvækkende, den tegneserieagtige baggrund, der...

Das raffinierte Gameplay kommt mit wenigen Elementen aus: Der Spieler steuert ein kleines Einsatzkommando aus drei bis fünf Kämpfern. Es gibt nur fünf verschiedene Waffentypen - von der Schrotflinte über MG und Sniper-Gewehr bis hin zu Granaten- und...

Frozen Synapse - TestAuf den Kern reduziert existieren zwei Gattungen von Strategiespielen: Da wären zunächst einmal die rundenbasierten Vertreter. Spieler dieser Ausrichtung sind Freunde geruhsamen Planens und meist von geduldiger Natur, sind sie...

Het kan: een leger-game die je vooral je hersens doet kraken. Jij bent een naamloze legercommandant die zijn VR-unit door verscheidene missies moet helpen. Dit doe je van boven het gevechtsveld, waar je beurt voor beurt commando's aan je soldaten geeft....

International Review By GameCaptain on 85

Für Multiplayer-Taktikfans ist dieser Spiel ein absoluter Geheimtipp. Kurze, knackige Partien, in denen taktisches Geschick und viel gelungenes Antizipieren gefragt sind, sorgen immer wieder für Spaß. Die Musik ist sehr gelungen, die weitere...
