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
"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."
