    This actually looks way better than I ever thought it would. Terrible name though. Wonder how it'll be?

    I think the name might come from some board game or miniature game. Game does look promising. There are a lot of good games coming out the last 4 months of this year

    Well, I did.

    The game has a number of flaws, so it's best be taken for what it is - a digital adaptation of a table-top game.
    With a bit bigger budget it could have been on par with Mutant YZ.

    - It is linear, with 11 main and 10 optional missions.
    - The maps are small, and only come in 2 flavors - a forest and nazi "katakomben" base.
    - There's no itemization to write home about, you get some consumables, like grenades and medi-kits, and some weapons upgrades, like improved ammo or better scopes, but that's it.
    - Stat progression is automatic, but you can choose skills.

    Yet the game has some charm, and is short enough to end before I got bored in shooting cthulhu-nazis.

    There also some mechanics that I found interesting
    - Vision cone and range - characters can hear farther then they see in a fog,
    so you know someone's there, but can't attack them before making an eye contact.
    - Panic gauge (I guess you just can't go without it in a cthulhu tagged game)
    - Chain of command - the highest ranking officer provides points to a shared pool of "special actions" based on his leadership stat. So if your Cap goes down, so does the number of your tactical options, as Sarge is a less inspiring leader.

    All in all it was pleasant enough, but I doubt it would get in any "must see" lists.
