At long last a new Half Life game has been released on Steam! Unfortunately it’s not Half Life 3, but don’t let that get you down, Lambda Wars is a thoroughly enjoyable Real Time Strategy game set in the Half Life 2 world.
Created from a Source Engine mod from Alien Swarm, Lambda Wars allows you to take part in the war between mankind and their brutal Combine overlords, with you able to lead the uprising as a commander of the Resistance or crush the rebellion as an overlord of the Combine.
Lambda Wars features full-fledged RTS gameplay that plays a little like Dawn of War or StarCraft II, making for some close matched multiplayer matches and fun single player missions. Obviously the big draw with Lambda Wars is the chance to interact with the Half Life world once again, but it also stands up as an excellent RTS in its own right.
With an impressive amount of units and buildings, intuitive gameplay and multiple game modes, Lambda Wars may not be Half Life 3, but it is a great RTS that makes great use of the source material.
