Strike Suit Infinity is a standalone expansion to Strike Suit Zero, Born Ready Games' Kickstarter-funded attempt to resurrect the X-Wing style of space shooter that's been out of fashion for most of the century. The original was a promising but deeply...

Strike Suit Zero, from Born Ready Games, was a fair-sized hit early in the year. With decent graphics, frantic trigger happy gameplay and the fact that you're always out-numbered, it went down particularly well with space shooter fanatics. Now Strike...

Strike Suit Zero cost a comparatively hefty sum for its somewhat brief campaign, but Infinity could take months to master, at a fraction of the cost. It’s unfortunate for strike suit veterans that Infinity isn’t available as an add-on to Zero, but as a stand-alone game, it’s an excellent slice of mech combat presented under the guise of an old-school arcade game; bonus rounds and all.

Strike Suit Infinity is a simple game, but it works well. In fact I can safely say that I’ve had as much fun in this miniaturised version of the game as I did with the full release. At £4.99 it gives a lot of space-bang for the buck.

A more immediately enjoyable game than Strike Suit Zero, but although most of the original faults have been addressed they’re still far from eradicated.

To be fair, you get a very good looking arcade space shooter for $7, this is great value for the price. If you need a game for in between, this is it.

Strike Suit Infinity prova ad assolvere un duplice compito: spingere giocatori a provare la serie, dando allo stesso tempo nuovi contenuti da assaporare a chi ha sviscerato il gioco base fino in fondo. Tra le due cose, ci sentiamo di dire che riesce maggiormente nella seconda: le ragioni per amarlo sono esattamente le stesse, così come non cambiano i motivi che potrebbero portare a non apprezzarlo.

Though it lacks refinement in some areas, Strike Suit Infinity provides a better experience than its predecessor at a fraction of the...

Finally, the gameplay itself may not be good for those who aren’t fans of this genre. If you don’t like titles like Freelancer, X-Wing vs TIE Fighter, or even combat flight simulators like HAWX or Ace Combat, then you will feel that the gameplay in this game gets old rather fast.

I feel that they missed out on an opportunity to use Infinity with Strike Suit Zero, by integrating it as another part to the original game. It might sound strange, but imagine if hitting certain goals in Infinity would unlock new ships or weapons on Zero and vice-versa?

I feel sort of weird saying this but I can’t really recommend Strike Suit Infinity unless you’ve played the first game, that is unless you really enjoy punitively hard space combat arcade games. Infinity is a sharp, burning digestif, a cap on Strike Suit Zero that offers a purer, harder experience to keep fans of the first game satisfied until some substantial...

I have a hard time recommending this game to anyone in particular; even at its bargain bin price point. This is one spaceship that would’ve been better left stationed in the far corner of the universe until it was properly prepped and ready for action.

If you liked Strike Suit Zero, you'll like Strike Suit Infinity, simple as that. It takes all of the mechanics, visuals and sounds from the first game and distills them down into a tight, concentrated arcade mode that will test the skill of even the most...

The bottom line, as you might expect, is that this is a visually rich combat simulator that brings a lot of arcade-style pleasure to the table, and it succeeds in strolling a fine line between repetitive and addictive – something that many similar titles aim for and miss. You might lose interest after no more than a few hours or days...

Strike Suit Infinity is a solid deal, given its lower price point. It doesn't claim to be anything but a wave-based, score-centric space-arcade game, and that works in its favor. The simple design allows the game to focus on its wonderfully satisfying mechanics, even if they aren't communicated very well through the poor tutorial.
