Minimum Review
With so many shooters crowding the marketplace, it’s refreshing to see Minimum take the low-fi route through Steam Early Access.

The Good: Easy to use menus, controls, deep level up system, hack 'n' slash element is fun, lengthy campaign

The Bad: Game shows it's age, weak voice acting, hack 'n' slash starts to bore after awhile, cliche story, doesn't have the depth of PC RTS

Now due to the games age it may turn most players off and, as always, has it's aging issues but with that aside KUF is a great RTS game. The main feature here is the ease of everything and the hack 'n' slash battles once you engage a unit. You don't build things or micromanage like in PC RTS, but instead you just click and select and upgrade. Don't think this is dumbed down or easy...because it's not. This game has plenty of strategy involved and a deep leveling up system. The story is pretty simple: You're a General who has to right against the bad guys to protect the land...kind of like a LOTR esque plot. There's not much to say but play it. Even if you aren't a hardcore RTS fan you'll still enjoy this and the hack 'n' slash element really changes things up. When it comes to bad things...well the graphics can get pretty ugly when the camera zooms up close to things, and the voice acting is something to be desired but it's easy on the ears an eyes. There is some bad collision detection issues and you're usual "early dev-kit glitches". The multiplayer is supposed to be good but you can't play online on a 360 since it was disabled for this game. Also, this game does get somewhat repetitive after awhile. You can learn new skills and abilities but its the same X and A button mashing over and over. Anyways, if you want to pass some time or are waiting for more next-gen games to come out. Pick this up.
