Human society has been divided. On one side, the natural course of human evolution has been disrupted. What started as an attempt to adapt to the harsh conditions of outer space and hostile planets, led to the creation of a weird race of transhuman cyborgs - the Augments.

Codex of Victory features an extensive story-driven, single-player campaign that tasks you with building and commanding a hi-tech army of drone vehicles, tanks and robots. The campaign offers an exciting mix of real-time base building, global strategic planning and turn-based combat. Travelling between planets and territories, your sole task is to stop the Augments.
Inspired by classics of the strategy genre, the base building element involves expanding your underground HQ in real-time. Collect room blueprints, build factories, research centers, workshops, laboratories and other facilities, to prepare for battles ahead. Global tactical oversight comes from your Planetary map, on which you'll instantly see where your armies need to be deployed.
Engage in tactical turn-based combat on hex-mapped battlefields. Select your units and upgrades, deploy them to the battlefield using the terrain to your advantage and test your tactical skills in each mission. As you progress through the battles of the main storyline and the various randomly-generated side missions, you'll gain access to over 25 units. Each type of unit omes in countless variations, thanks to a diverse range of upgrades and add-on modules. Build your best and put them to the test against the incoming Augments!

It seems to be interesting so far. I just started playing it, but I like what I see. HOWEVER! Keep in mind that this is story driven, so its not like you build a base, and enemies will come to you, or you can expand and take other other enemies' bases. It is story based. With that said, the combat seems to be diverse and entertaining and has an XCOM-esc feel. A nice casual game that seems to be lots of fun, but keep in mind, it IS story based.
Codex of Victory is a mixture of real-time construction, global strategy and turn-based combat. As you travel between planets and territories, your only goal will be to stop the Augmented. The game allows you to build and direct a high-tech army made up of drones, tanks and robots. Graphically the game is excellent and the game mechanics are very good, as the battles are very entertaining and absorbing.
Codex of Victory is a solid Hex-Based Strategy game. I've been playing this game since release and I think it's a fun game. The TBS features are similar to a lot of other games, which is good in my opinion. It has all the standard TBS features like movement costs, Los targeting, special attacks etc. The AP point system is done pretty well and is well implemented. All in all the game is pretty solid. However, it has its cons. The combat is really good but it lacks depth, for example, terrain only offer movement bonuses and nothing else. The building in the game seems like a Free to play game. And the worst point is that the scenarios are pretty small, especially early in the game. I think the pro's outweight the cons though. I think this game is good for every strategy fan! I rate it 4 out of 5 stars!
This is a pretty cool sci-fi strategy game. It's humans vs cyborgs. You have all sorts of cool sci-fi vehicles and weapons to use. Base building is really important and some of the single player missions are really challenging. The graphics are about average and so is the soundtrack. It is an OK game.
