The game is very skill based but I can give some advice:
1) Don't forget to use the shield offensively. Specially against groups of red diamonds or blue mothers.
2) When there is a group of lasers targeting you from the other side of the screen, use the shield quickly and ram them.
3) Every time you feel like using the shield defensively. Always use slow motion for 2 or 3 seconds to check for an opening BEFORE activating the shield. Your RARELY need to use slow motion for extended periods of time.
4) Always move. Most of the time, the monster's attacks are synchronized so it's easy.
5) Try to clear the green bombers as soon as possible, since they have very little HP you can even make them first priority. They can fill the screen with bombs. When they do this use the double click.
6) Focus on killing small dispersed groups of monsters. Specially if they are lasers.
7) I won with the sunglasses character. It's hard to explain but I came to the conclusion that it is more efficient.
The round that got me the impossible badge was EPIC! LIKE A DAMN MOVIE!!!
When I had around 300k points I was forced to the upper edge of the screen at the worst possible time, shield was on cooldown and I HAD TO GO THROUGH 6 LASERS!!! While I was going through them I just assumed I was dead, got to the centre of the screen, checked my life and I had next to nothing, I literally didn't see my health bar at first glance and in my mind I was so dead already that I SWEAR I saw the screen turning red!!!
Turns out I lived with 1 HP or something and made a come back finishing with 533k pints.
I didn't want to put a lot of work in the Impossible badge to find a challenge, well, impossible to beat and have all the work go to trash. So I started with what appears to be the hardest challenge: 15.
I managed to beat it!!!! I think it just took me like 30 minutes. The final turns were epic. He summoned the 10 Attack monster and his initial attack was blocked by an Immunity. He had 15 HP left and 4 Elder but I had the Hound of Tindalos and 3 Arcane!!! GG
I won with 12 HP left and the round was rather short. I don't even know how I did it.
If it sounds stupid but it works, it ain't stupid: At the start of the game pause and use ALL of your energy to build nothing but bays and spawn bombers. They obliterate the base in SECONDS. Some times the enemy will survive the first wave of bombers but now with less defenses it won't last long. This doesn't work only for duel! In skirmish and even surround levels at least one enemy will be gone in an instant and then it's easier. In Defense levels I get gunships instead and I DO build one reactor and take from there.
It's starting to be less effective in later levels but so far I destroyed at least half of the game with this strategy.
How is it possible to win in Harder? At first I was being cautious but with that playstyle the zombie's growth completely outscales any progress you can possibly do. So I decided to simply do very risky things in the first days and if it didn't work out simply restart the game. I did get some really good starts this way but, still, sooner or later they get you!!! I had 2 police stations and 2 malls with a good quantity of soldiers and 2 consecutive hordes ruined my game. Very stressful. I beat Rebuild 2 in the hardest difficiulty but this one is too much.
OMG!!! In Alkubra the first merc I hired was called Hanri. I went through a lot with that guy, a looong time it was only he and I. Fast-forward, I'm in the third zone, found much better people available in bigger cities so I dismiss Hanri. More time passes and I get attacked by some Scavengers, win and capture ONE of them; check him out in the crew just out of curiosity... SAME HAIRCUT, SAME SKIN TONE, SAME BLUE EYES, but this guy is called Henri. I almost had a heart attack. I thought for a moment that my old time buddy Hanri had gone bad. I should visit Hanri soon.
Is it just me or is the AI ridiculously unresponsive? I'm shooting aliens in the back of the head barely half screen of distance and they don't even turn around to fight.
It makes the game completely boring! I was looking forward for this game, Raze I and II were amazing and was expecting so much from this one.
I already beat the human campaign and it was so damn easy because of this. I hate to say it, I thought I would love this game, but so far I'm finding it very boring and lower quality than Raze II. I will still play it a bit longer so hopefully something makes me change my mind.
Also about the lag. Well my gamed doesn't lag but everything is in a permanent slow motion.
