So it looks like there has been a fairly large face lift for Frozen Synapse called Frozen Synapse Prime. It looks like it was released for the Playstation Vita a couple months ago and got launched on steam today. I didn’t even her about this until today.
I played the first one and REALLY liked it. If you have never heard of Frozen Synapse I do suggest you look it up. It’s sort of a turn based strategy meshed with real time but in increment of 5 seconds. Basically, you give your units orders and can even move the AI into positions that you think they’ll go to get a more accurate sample, then you press a button to see how that 5 seconds will work. However, once you actually commit to going ahead in time, both you and the opponent’s actions will happen at the same time. It’s a brilliant mechanic.
Anyway, I was curious on if anyone has tried the PC version. From what I ‘sense’ and hear on the web is that it’s a port from the Vista and doesn’t offer too much. That being said, I had a ton of fun with the first and was slightly interested. Anyone here play the original and/or this one and would care to comment?
