    "First Strike is a great game to play if you're looking to kill some time or just want a fun distraction. The game is gorgeous on any device, and the gameplay is intuitive and responsive. Once you've mastered the gameplay, however, it can get a bit boring and repetitive. I think it could use an update to address this."
