  • Offering up a different look for tactical strategy play on Switch, Action Squad has limits but also some appeal

    Normally when I think about tactical shooters I’m thinking they’re either isometric like in the X-Com vein or top-down like some more classic titles. Heck, earlier this year with RICO we even had a first-person version. Taking things from yet another perspective we have Door Kickers: Action Squad which will have you taking on bad guys side-scrolling style. While you can tackle the game solo it seems like a title mostly geared for pairing up with some friends locally or taking your chances (keeping in mind the fickle nature of Switch indie online communities) with online matchmaking. There are a few classes to choose from, each with their own pros and cons, and the perps’ behaviors aren’t always a sure thing so there are always opportunities for a surprise. While it won’t be for everyone its mix of more arcade-like action with tactical considerations taken into account help it to stand out as a bit different in the Switch lineup.
