Reviews:

Action Trip by Ure "Vader" Paul

"Incoming Forces gives gamers a chance to immerse themselves in a storyline set some twenty years after the ending of the first game. At the end of Incoming, Humanity successfully fended off the attack of the alien race called the Terauman. It is after this that humans decided to hunt down any remaining threats in the galaxy. Unfortunately, the ongoing cleansing of various systems in the universe turned humans into a malevolent and much dreaded race. Eventually, they came across the alien world of Kaiyodo (where your home planet is located). Your ultimate task is to repel all oncoming human threats and attacks, which will often be exceptionally ruthless. Now that's the kind of plot I enjoy. No more corny stories like: weak and pathetic human forces molested by an evil alien race, and you are a lone renegade ready to kick extraterrestrial ass. This time, humans are the oppressors (which isn't really difficult to imagine) and you are fighting along side the aliens."

"Visually, Incoming Forces is more than a worthy successor to the original - and I'm talking today's visual standards of course. The settings will usually change and they are all unique in atmosphere features and terrain characteristics. Weather conditions are going to change, so you better be extra careful. Nothing was left out in the portrayal of a true-to-life environment - when you fly above the clouds you get to see some tasty sunlight reflections on your windshield, and when you dive bellow the cloud you may enter into a grayish, rainy, and therefore very unpleasant scenery..."

"Despite some of its aforementioned drawbacks, Incoming Forces has all that it takes to entrap every shooter fan out there. The gameplay is intense and the visuals are impressive, which means that all the shooter basics are in place. The game has some elements of Free Space, although I think it's likely to appeal to Rogue Squadron and Starfighter fans just as well. I honestly didn't expect to get as much fun from it as I did, but I guess it's always good when I'm pleasantly surprised by a game. Kind of makes me less cranky the rest of the working week."

Adrenaline Vault by Bob Mandel

"Incoming Forces is a highly competent and enjoyable game continuing Rage's long tradition of high-quality polished action games like Incoming, Expendable, and Hostile Waters. I am a real fan of what they produce, and have yet to encounter a dud. This new release does not produce the same startling impact as the original, nor does it revolutionize the genre as much as did its predecessor. Yet there is solid if familiar gameplay here, and the graphics and audio are immensely pleasing if no longer groundbreaking. So if you want an enjoyable change of pace and desire to save aliens from mauling by humans, give this one a shot."
