Developed by: Strangelite - Empire Interactive (2005) - First-Person Shooter - Rated: MatureStarship Troopers is similar to the controversial 1959 science-fiction novel by Robert Heinlein, in which troopers don powered armor and use advanced weapons to combat an evil, arachnid-like alien race commonly known as the "bugs." Nineteen types of creepy-crawlies show up in this first-person shooter, each with different strengths and weaknesses. Players battle through 12 indoor and outdoor levels, including a secret laboratory, bug nests, abandoned mines, and outposts, to relieve planet Hesperus from the insect invaders.Blast up to 300 enemies at once with one of seven weapons, including a nuke launcher and intelligence grenades. Join the special forces of the mobile infantry as Marauder Zero Six in the single-player campaign mode, or start a bug-killing frenzy on the Internet. Up to eight people can team up online or by LAN and play through three deathmatch, co-op, or team deathmatch levels. After completing a single-player combat mission, the level may be re-played to generate a score and rank according to performance. Bonus items may be unlocked when certain conditions in the game are met.From the Manufacturer: Rooted firmly in Paul Verhoeven's interpretation of Robert Heinlein's novel about an epic battle of humankind against a menacing planet of bugs (the previous game based on Starship Troopers -- an RTS from another publisher -- put more emphasis on the novel's elements), this first-person shooter has Roughnecks plowing through literally hundreds of bugs at a time in onslaught after onslaught of intense encounters. The game's advanced engine allows for well over a hundred alien creatures at a time in battle scenes to bring the hellacious bug fights to life.
