Release Date: 11/15/05 · Origin: U.K.
Rooted firmly in Paul Verhoeven’s interpretation of Robert Heinlein’s novel about an epic battle of humankind against a menacing planet of bugs (the previous game based on Starship Troopers — an RTS from another publisher — put more emphasis on the novel’s elements), this first-person shooter has Roughnecks plowing through literally hundreds of bugs at a time in onslaught after onslaught of intense encounters. The game’s advanced engine allows for well over a hundred alien creatures at a time in battle scenes to bring the hellacious bug fights to life.
