Intelligent Systems is well known for creating excellent strategy games. The studio is responsible for the prolific and beloved Fire Emblem series as well as the dearly missed Advance Wars series. Now they’ve decided to take a different approach with Code Name S.T.E.A.M., which trades swords and tanks for all manner of steam-powered gadgetry. Saturated in Americana and silver age comic-book charm, the game takes familiar concepts and packages them in new, appealing ways. With challenging objectives, varied map layouts, and tons of character choices, Code Name S.T.E.A.M. is a complex game that’s hard to put down.
