    This game looks amazing, and the lite version was great. Too bad I've got no money =(
    Shouldve waited for NFS to go on sale...

    Happy to see the missle aiming got a fix. But I have a couple of problems:

    When I select an ant, it selects another one instead. (happened in 1.0 sometimes)

    When I called an airstrike, it went to another direction other than where the reticle was. (didn't have this in 1.0, but I'll see if it can be reproduced)

    After finishing a match in campaign mode, the game crashes before I get a chance to get to the map.

    Any plans for an online mode? Without it, I don't see the draw of the game. Get that in before Worms comes out, which will likely destroy this game.

    How is this game overall? I read some pretty negative reviews when it first came out. Has something changed within the game to warrant a purchase?

    It is okay, not bad for a game at the current dropped price. I find it fun actually.

    Don't like the random placement which dooms 2/3 of your ants due to vulnerable to air strikes and other big kabooms and some too obvious bugs and minor UI issues which can be quite distressing, though not game-killing

    Wish there were a story mode featuring, cough, something like Antz, or I see an opportunity lost.

    I find it quite fun too, but I've only played the lite version.. I enjoy that enough to not pay for the full version :)

    Glad to hear you're enjoying it.... wouldn't you like some bigger weapons though? Our new pork bomb is pretty special :D
