Title of this pack is actually misleading, mostly because in this pack there are 3 strategy games and only two action titles. 7th Legion is actually really good RTS that in style and addicting gameplay reminds me of Red Alert, it's that good, but it is also kind of different and revolutionary in some way, like resources. You don't get them by simply gathering, but doing missions and battles - when you do your thing, you get actually payed for the job and that's your income of resources. There are also cards that are little interesting mechanic that can change the stakes dramatically, not always in your favor. Also, for a strategy game, the plot is actually pretty complex and really solid. Deadlock Planetary Conquest is a great turn based strategy game, problem is the steam version that makes this game useless, since it won't launch at all or will crash after intro and there is no fix to be found other than buy it for other platform. Deadlock 2: Shrine Wars is a worthy follow-up, it's bigger and better and those two games are strongly recommended to any Civilization and Simcity (among others) lovers out there. As for the action in this pack, there are two titles - Redline, which is a pretty good and interesting mix of FPS and car combat straight from Carmageddon. While level design feels outdated by today's standards, graphics don't feel as outdated as one would expect, soundtrack and gameplay are still as good. Slave Zero is a solid TPS, where you are in control of a mech. Graphics are clear, there are many levels that are incredibly varied, fun bosses and tight controls. Overall, this package is really good and has strategy games classics and fun action games. If you don't care about graphics and only about gameplay, you will have hundreds of hours of fun with these games, or maybe even thousands if you're not careful with Deadlock 1 and 2, because those games are incredibly addicting. Recommended.
