Personal review
Un juego de estrategia/acción por turnos, donde debes planificar tus acciones no sólo en función de lo que tu quieres hacer, sino también pensando en las acciones del rival.

Muy mental (aunque demolerlo todo a bazocazos es sencillo y eficaz), desgraciadamente no hay tanta gente para jugar partidas como antaño.
Lo cual es curioso, ya que debido a su planteamiento tu envías/recibes una partida y recibir la respuesta/contestarla días más tarde con su/tu estrategia, para ver el resultado de vuestras acciones y seguir (si ambos permanecéis mínimamente vivos)

Original como el sólo, el único defecto que le veo es que su campaña es excesivamente exigente (su curva de dificultad hace de su tutorial un infierno y de su campaña una quimera, se aprende más jugando en multijugador)

Un interesante enfoque en los juegos de acción por turnos.

Plan your moves, test them out, then hit the "Prime" button: both you and your enemy's turns are executed simultaneously. Competitive-but-intuitive multiplayer and a huge single player campaign mean that Frozen Synapse will give you hours and hours of tactical delight.

Comment
A semi-abstract, semi-cyberspace tactical squad-based combat strategy with ability to give surprisingly complex commands to your troops at about decisecond precision.

Each turn is about 5 seconds of action where you need to plan your moves in a way that avoids unnecessarily loss of life by scanning surroundings, controlling facing, designating targets to focus or ignore, etc. and since actions can cross the timeline between turns, you can easily end up with a turn starting where you have a rocket a millimeter way from your trooper's face with no solution available to save them.

Each singleplayer mission takes place on randomly generated map that is generated again if you restart that mission, disallowing you to grind same level over and over again to win it by brute forcing your tactics (as in, the challenges if not the goals are different on each try).

Multiplayer at the time of writing only has 1-vs-1 battles against human players.
