Terrawars: New York Invasion is a sci-fi-themed first-person shooter (FPS). It’s available for Windows-based PCs, and it uses the same Lithtech Jupiter engine that powers No One Lives Forever 2.
The basic story will not be new to FPS diehards: The Earth is under invasion from an alien force, and Manhattan is ground zero for that assault. Despite the trope, Terrawars: New York Invasion does manage to distinguish itself in its approach. In this game, you’re not a mercenary, cop, or cybernetic ninja; you’re simply a college student who is thrust into a very bad situation.
Adapt or die is the theme of this often-clever game, and part of what makes it so engaging is the evolution of the main character. The game consists of 14 New-York-centric levels, and it uses cut scenes, scripted sequences and platforming to good effect. The game also boasts a wide range of weapons, and the player can even upgrade weapons with bio-matter goo found in canisters left behind by the aliens.
The biggest shortcoming of Terrawars: New York Invasion is that the levels are very linear, which is no longer the standard for FPS games. Nevertheless, the game is solid old-fashioned fun, and for the hardcore FPS fan looking for another challenge, this will certainly kill a day or two.
