Starship Troopers is an FPS action PC game in which you will play as a soldier that fights against the threat of the Arachnids. The game tries to reproduce the universe created for the previous film, full of action and giant alien spiders devouring humans. As it is to be expected, the player will have to fight against all kind of enemies with a good variety of weapons to smash them up!
Although this is a good shooter, if you are a fan of the films, it has some technical issues like AI problems or some misplaced sound bites. Nevertheless, this PC game comes with a campaign which can be played in any of the available difficulties (Easy, Normal or Hard) and a multiplayer with several modes (Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Co-op).
How to play
The gameplay is the usual for the shooter genre, nothing too innovative nor worth to be mentioned. At first, the only reason you will have to download and play this title is the previous film in case you want to know how the story goes. If you are a true citizen and you continue playing Starship Troopers, you will see that the title is mediocre, only enhanced by not too bad graphics and merciless action. The campaign mode divides into 12 missions, every time you beat a mission you are free to re-play it in a different mode: Level Attack (similar to a time trial mode), which will record your score and the number of kills.
As a soldier of the mobile infantry, you will have to face variety of enemies including dangerous plasma bugs, heavy insects acting as tanks and quick spiders that may ambush you. Eventually you will have to face bigger boss bugs, but don’t worry; you will also get better weapons and ammunition. In any case, AI is not good enough to be a true menace for an average player, so feel free to empty your magazines on those bugs, they will not fight back.
