Overall, Hybrid Wars is a decent game for its decent price. If you enjoy mechs, tanks, helos and explosions, this game has it. Pros: - Pleasant graphics at High settings, nice particle effects for explosions - Fluid combat, relatively easy controls - Mech combat is reminisent of Mech Warrior, one I enjoyed - Skill-Tree progression for Heroes, Vehicles - Heroes have somewhat unique abilities, each with different mechs with different weapons Cons: - Story is meh, you're a mercenary working for some tech company. Narrator voice acting is mediocre at best, I can't stand his voice. - A few graphical quirks here and there, could definitely use some polish. - The vehicles you unlock are constantly available and respawn throughout the maps, making the use of your Hero pointless at times. - Campaign is kinda short, been playing for a few hours and already 50% complete. There are many things that could make this game better and increase its replay value, in my humble opinion. As it stands though, its an enjoyable game. Give it a try.
Pros Easy to learn. Fast, arcadey gameplay. Cool graphics. You play as either your 'hero' with a cyber-armor or in a vehicle (walker, tank, heli...) Neat models. The mecha design is great. Walkers and tanks look like taken from Ghost in the Shell (from the flashbacks to Motoko's military years in SAC 2gig). Two playable characters (if you sign up to Wargame.net, which you need to do anyway if you want to use multiplayer). CONS Linear gameplay, not very tactical. Just shoot, run, shoot. Not much use of cover or flanking, since enemies allways 'know' where you are. Health pickups and respawining mechas make taking damage not so critical. Three playable characters locked behind a paywall. Kind of shallow tech tree. You can reset your tech points, so no 'hard decisions' when choosing upgrades. Voice acting sucks, I even changed the language to russian (I don't speak russian) to see if it was any better. It wasn't. Really, the voice actors should be killed by firing squad. Uninteresting music. Shallow story. Not very engagin imo. (Voice acting might 'help' in making the story suck) The game is not bad, but I could suggest Running With Rifles if you want a multiplayer isometric top down shooter, or Neon Chrome if you are in for a single player game (or local multiplayer). Brigador is another mecha centered isometric shooter worth checking out. This game has a bunch of good stuff going, but nothing impressive. I'll update this review later, when I put some hours in multiplayer.
Hybrid Wars is a top down twin stick shooter that allows you to fight on foot or in tanks, mechs, and helicopters. When you start the game you have one hero to select and another that can be unlocked if you login to the game's multiplayer, another is available if you get the deluxe edition. There are some short voice and text scenes between each mission but the story isn't anything interesting, you will go into levels destroying everything in your way to accomplish whatever your objective is, enemies units can be captured and made to fight for you with EMP grenades if you are playing as the base hero, and you eventually will be able to enter and exit vehicles that might have their own super weapons. Each of the hero characters has a different main and secondary weapon and two other features that can be a mech loadout or passive ability. When you are on the ground you can make use of a jetpack to get over obstacles or to help avoid things. It can be an amusing game but for what it is the price is somewhat high, character selection is limited, weapons and customization options are limited, gameplay isn't varied enough, the graphics are poor, and it just doesn't offer the range of options of a game like Helldivers or the low price of a game like Halo Spartan Assault.
