Solstice Chronicles: MIA is a twin stick shooter where the odds are very much against you. Faced with waves of deadly enemies, your only chance for survival is to play a bit more tactical than what is expected from you in most of these types of games. Using your drone companion to manage your threat level is essential and sometimes knowing when to make a run for it is just as useful as standing your ground. With four character classes, different skill trees, a story mode and survival mode, this is the type of game that can keep you busy for ages. The lack of online co-op sucks, but nothing beats setting up two controllers and playing with a friend next to you on the couch.
Gameplay: The game is intense,even on lower skill levels, and requires you to do more than just spray and pray.
Graphics: Not a very colorful game, but the top down visuals packs plenty of detail.
Sound: Surprisingly good voice acting even if the background music is nothing to write home about
