Code Name S.T.E.A.M. represents an interesting departure from normal Nintendo games. Taking third person shooter mechanics, combining it with turn based strategy, and throwing on a layer of steampunk weirdness, the game is certainly a unique experience. The core mechanics are sound, featuring a diverse cast of characters that can utilize a wide array of weaponry. However, the experience of playing the game is more bland than one might expect from something that puts Abraham Lincoln in charge of a band of heroes trying to save the world from an alien invasion. Along with this come a few development mistakes that end up dragging the entire game into mediocrity.
