Starcraft Frontline Volume 1 takes inspiration from Starship Troopers by giving the Terran troops plenty of one-liners after they blow up Hydralisks.

By Konstantinos . March 7, 2007 . 6:32am

A 60MB download, a copy of Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and a fiddly installation are the only way to enjoy a cute Zelda-ish RTS on your PC.
