Default Prime's Matt Buckley says what's what in Nuclear Dawn, the latest offering from InterWave Studios. "There’s a certain satisfaction to conquering a steep learning curve. Sometimes, the games that are the most difficult to learn are also the ones that become the most engaging when enough time and energy is spent. Nuclear Dawn is a game that entrenches itself in this very category. It is unfriendly and uninviting. It’s not much of a looker, either. Many newcomers are bound to turn it off in the first hour, never to return again, but they are to be pitied. Nuclear Dawn is punishing to newbies, but rewards those who endure ten fold with gameplay that offers up some of the most satisfying teamwork ever in a multiplayer FPS."
