Finally Family Friendly Gaming is getting back into Personal Computer (PC) reviews. A fantastic new PC gaming machine of awesomeness has arrived thanks to an amazing computer business, and many months of saving. The first game we are playing on this new PC gaming machine is Tiny Troopers. And this is the first time we have been able to get Steam working. Don't get me started on the various problems we had with Steam.
Tiny Troopers contains these cute looking little soldiers who go out on a variety of missions. Thirty missions in total. They are modern day soldiers who shoot, and blow up the enemy soldiers. One thing I noticed in Tiny Troopers is we are always outnumbered. Usually by an extreme amount too. Tiny Troopers is kind to player by only sending a few at a time.
There are explosive weapons in Tiny Troopers. We can blow things up with rocket launchers, grenades, and more. Of course enemy soldiers will also specialize in these destructive weapons as well. Tiny Troopers is real world war realistic when it comes to explosives. Walk on a mine and your guys are toast. Our teams can take more damage in terms of the machine gun fire.
Tiny Troopers reminds me of Z, for those long time PC gamers. There is a certain amount of attitude in this game in terms of the audio. The team will throw out war like slogans. I felt bad for the enemies as they floundered before they died. They left large pools of blood when the bodies vanished to mark where we digitally murdered.
Mistakes are deadly in Tiny Troopers. It is very easy to die even on the easy settings. One mistake will make the player start the level over. Enemy soldiers hide in a variety of places and get cheap shots at our troopers. This was more annoying than anything else. I kept trying to figure out where shots were coming from. Having to hit CTRL plus the fire button for special weapons took some getting used to.
If Tiny Troopers was rated by the ESRB I would expect a 'T' for Teen rating. Families will find two things to be concerned about when it comes to Tiny Troopers. The first is the violence since that is the majority of the game play in Tiny Troopers. The second would be the attitudes expressed and how that can influence the family member playing this PC game.
Family Friendly Factor: 60%
