The scenario is common for this kind of games - nuclear war, destroyed cities filled with the remnants of once magnificent sky scrappers, rusting cars and the cyborgs that went nuts and started killing people. The first ones had an average intellect that of your coffee maker, but as time passed, they learned to be shrewd and started to gang up on innocent humans. Your mission is to save the humanity. That's where the game takes a sharp turn from the hundreds of similar look-alikes.
Ever wandered why so many experienced gamers prefer old 2D originals to their feeble 3D sequels? You've got to play Wastelands for the answer. Ok, fine, I will tell you - action, action and some more "bring it on, I just hope I have enough ammo" action. Whereas the other games start you out with a dagger or a pistol, you go through the initiation with a real blowtorch. Cool - let's make a hot dog out of one of those brainless stainless steel monsters. And the game will give you plenty of ways to send the robots to their cyberhell - with grenades, flamethrower, gaussgun, laser and other weapons. After playing for a week, you surely will have to use all of your imagination to come up with a new way to surprise yourself and your friends. But where is the will, there is the way.
Your opponents - they deserve a special mentioning, too. These metal bastards aren't as easy as they seem at first. There are 21 levels in total (including over 150 action screens), each with a unique twist. As you will soon find, it takes a lot of out of the box thinking to just stay alive, let alone outsmarting numerous robots, turrets, miners and kamikaze-bots.
