You're stuck in a steaming alien jungle with nothing but your own sweat for company. The enemy has a lock on your position and they're rapidly closing in. Your shields are down to 14%, you've got just two guided missiles left in your BioTech Assault Tank, and if you stay put you're dead meat. So, what are you going to do? Panic and start crying? Or do you get a little creative... ?
In BioTech: Liberator you take control of a single combat vehicle, but one capable of morphing into widely differing forms, providing you're carrying the relevent Transform Pod to make the change. Each form has its own unique abilities and weapons and since you're up against an entire planet of warmongering nasties, you'll be needing them all if you want to get out of there in one piece.
It's partly about blowing the enemy into gooey, bite-sized chunks, but it's also about using the different forms of the biotech vehicle to the best effect - transformations are limited. Much as we hate to use other games as a point of reference, think Soviet StrikeTM meets Blast CorpsTM, with just a pinch of LemmingsTM. In short, a killer mix of strategic problem solving, white-knuckled action and hefty explosions!
