  • Now of this game can run on 512 Mb ram why cant the previous game
  • Windows phone 8 to be specific...
  • Cool, can't wait to check out multiplayer. Just hope this isn't plagued with IAP's. I am more than happy to support developers though so don't get me wrong.
  • Wow these is my favorite game
  • Hmm... a lot of similarities to old Halo games.
    Edit: Can't download, I don't get apps/games if I can't read the publishers name.
  • If that's ur stance then you are missing out on a great game. If this is to the standard of their previous game Call of Arena, i expect it to be great.
  • It does look good, but I stand by my decision.
    Have fun!
  • Cool i respect ur stance but you are locking yourself off from some hidden gems. Maybe once wp gets more prominent and the store is more mature then these devs will be displayed in a manner to your liking.
  • That makes sense, but don't be quick to judge. I mean, in the end what I say doesn't matter, but I know some quality software from foreign countries. Maxthon is the first to come to mind. Maxthon cloud browser is sooooo ahead of chrome, but it's support is *mostly* in mandarin. Same with UC Browser. Just consider it, please?
  • Very impressed. Just played the first mission. The levels are really well done. With a little extra, this can definitely be a #1 game on windows phone, the way it is now can still achieve that. Objectives and missions with interactive things going on in game could be really cool.
  • Injustice please come soon to wp
  • While we're at it, how about Xcom too?
  • Are they both confirmed that they are coming to wp?? Both the games?
  • Nope!
  • Very impressed. Just played the first mission. The levels are really well done. With a little extra, this can definitely be a #1 game on windows phone, the way it is now can still achieve that. Objectives and missions with interactive things going on in game could be really cool.
  • Wow
  • Nice!
  • YES!!! downloading now. I love SciFi shooters. Yay for WP!
  • HALO for kids
  • At least this game doesn't require a pair of binoculars to see player in action and that too for FREE. HALO looks better in my PC than in my phone...
  • Looks cool for tablet but I hate fps/tps on phones. Probably decent on phablets tho
  • I wish injustice comes too!
  • Sweet on my 920
  • This game took so many hours of my weekend. It's really awesome!
  • Shooting with walking is so terrible, so shaky :((
  • Great game.A lot are popping in now and Wp 8.1 is also coming close!THe more the merrier!
  • Can anyone tell me if it requires a wi-fi connection to start the game?
  • Alright, downloaded. Doesn't require wi-fi unless you go multiplayer. Played few levels of "Front Line" and the game is really impressive!
  • Really, really fun game. Just need to incorporate a few objectives or something in to spice up the gameplay. Also needs some work on the walking + shooting, the controls get really twitchy.
  • I never use to have this problem till I got a ss note 3. What are you using?
    Have you fixed this issue?
    Are you playing on the HD version?
  • Lumia 920. It isn't all the time, I also haven't played it since the recent update so it could be fixed.
  • Sweet, a cell shaded game of starship troopers lol. Gonna download soon as i get home. Only got 1gb data....
  • do any of u guys know how to hack this game for dimonds (mythril) in windows phone 8 plz respond thanks
  • there is anyway to rename the room for multiplayer games? or the player? It gets hard to find friend's rooms =) Also there is anyway to "pause" the session or something like that? i cant find any button around
