When it comes to tactical squad-based shooters simply nothing compares to the X-Com series. Spaceland isn’t trying to compete with it though, it’s instead offering up an experience that’s reminiscent of that style in terms of the combat, but with a budget price and more easy-going feel. Does it allow for creating a squad you’ll carefully cultivate with the perks that represent your strategic style? Not really. Does it have the research, the base, and all of the layers that make the strategy element so satisfying? Nah. However, considering the price point and the lack of stand-out strategy options on the Switch if you’re itching for something in that vein on a budget it may satisfy you for at least a little while.
