Takeover Review

IritSoft is becoming more and more popular with their recent shift to quality games with titles such as the Cursed Treasure IP, and now brings us Takeover, an interesting strategy game.

Some nice art, nothing fancy.

This kind of strategy game is an old concept, but IriySoft spined it with enough new stuff to keep me entertained along the three story campaigns. The storyline is pretty standard, you play as a commander who basically wants to conquer stuff. And in that conquering, there is fun to be had.

Its quite hard to describe the mechanisms of this RTS, but the one thing I can tell you about the gameplay is that every level has enough to keep you occupied and challenged, especially if you are after those shinny three-star rankings you can earn. Not only that, each campaign has a different controllable race, that will change the gameplay slightly.

A level of the first campaign. Nice stuff.
When you complete a level you are rewarded, according to your performance, a rating from one to three stars, and those stars will affect how fast you can progress through you upgrade tree (also different for each race). That alone pushed me to go back and replay some levels just to have a stronger army for the last levels. As for the levels themselves they are well designed and though of, with each one bringing some different challenge to the table. I'll warn you though, the third campaign has some really tough (yet rewarding) levels.

Upgrade tree of the first campaign.
All-in-all Takeover is a good game with tons to keep you entertained, so be sure to give it a try!

Game Rating: 7.5/10

I know there will be many difficulties and challenges but I am determined to do it. If it does not succeed then it will be a lesson for me as well
