Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.

I played through the demo that was just released on the eShop, and man, have I gotten addicted to this game. Strategy is not a genre I tend to gravitate towards, but I will have fun with a strategy game if done right, and boy was I having fun with this. There’s something great about switching between characters as you try to come up with the best battle plan to effectively get through the enemies, and I like the “steam” mechanic – moving and using weapons uses up your allotted amount per turn, but it can also be a good strategy to keep some in reserve, as you can then fire on enemies that move into your sight. I also dig the comic book-like presentation – especially in the cut scenes, that look much better in motion than in screenshots. Can’t wait to get the full game.
