|First, the background. You're an adventurer in the 1930s whose father is missing. You track him down on an island, where you hook up with a woman to take on a mad scientist.|
The basis of both of your armies is creature morphing. In essence you go around finding new creatures and snagging their DNA. You then go into your lab and can combine the body parts of ANY TWO CREATURES, and create your own uber-creature with the best of both!
This means the game is pretty much infinitely playable and is amazingly fun in multiplayer. Do you like dolphins and zebras? Why not combine the sleek swimming of the dolphin with the kicking hooves of the zebra! You can combine tigers and wasps. Leopards and oxen. The combinations are pretty much endless and it is quite a thrill to see how each one works out.
The missions in the game each call for certain tactics, as you learn how to go over, under, and through obstacles. But really the best gameplay comes when you take on other humans, and see how your favorite combos fare against their favorites.
Even if you're not into the fighting part, the creature creation can be quite fun on its own. An enjoyable, imaginative strategy game for all ages.
