I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Band of Bugs, and maybe I am too much of a tactics fanboy for my opinion to matter. But I truly think that if a tactics type game could entice and hook casual players, this is it. NinjaBee set out to create a game with a casual point of entry and a hidden depth and I think they have succeeded. NinjaBee’s visual style and humor are here in spades as well.
When I stated at the beginning of this epic hands-on experience that they had hooked me I was not exaggerating. I literally came home, booted up my 360, and thought to myself, “I’ll just play some Band of Bugs…oh…wait…” So, I have been suffering alongside all of you who have been looking forward to this game too. The only difference? I have known exactly what I am missing.
