Buck Rogers: Countdown to Doomsday - March '12

The game centers around a longstanding war between Earth and Mars, more specifically between two organizations, the Earth-based New Earth Organization (NEO), and the Mars-based Russo-American Mercantile (RAM). The militaristic and dictatorial RAM, backed by a powerful army of genetically engineered soldiers, has been laying siege to Earth for years. NEO, effectively an organized resistance movement, is forced to operate out of secret bases on the surface of Earth and in orbit in its uphill battle for human freedom.
The game begins as the player-created party joins the ranks of a desperate NEO. After an introductory briefing, the NEO facility is discovered and attacked by RAM rocketships and troop transports. The actual gameplay begins and the player's first goal is to repel the RAM attack. During this first level of play, NEO NPCs join the party during combat with the RAM invaders. When the player successfully locates and activates the anti-aircraft defenses of the NEO base, the RAM attack is finally driven back.

Damn you already beat it? I don't remember it being that short. Did you use END to speed up the battles?

Nice Kong. How long did it take you? Also, SRAM enabled?

Re: Buck Rogers: Countdown to Doomsday - March '12

Yes, I played probably over 25% of the game with fast forward held down. If you know what you are doing the game is very short. There are only about 7 things you have to do. And about 7 optional missions.

SRAM is enabled.

Probably took somewhere around 6 hours.

This is 3rd time I beat it.

I skipped the optional missions.

I spent a lot of time re-rolling my characters when creating them which I think makes the game much easier - too easy.

When you create your characters, I don't suggest optimizing your stat rolls. If you do it will take a lot of the challenge and fun out of the game. Limit yourself to around a max of 3 rolls per character.

Also using a walk through will do the same thing - remove all challenge and fun.
