Falcon Squad is a top down shooter which, when finished, will hopefully include a pretty fulfilling, story-driven campaign mode, a training area, and statistics tracking via Reflect. Right now though, it's only got multiplayer modes, which I am very happy with so far.
...and two more screenshot links, since I can't post more than 3 images!
Though it isn't without it's occasional problems, I'd really like to see what everyone thinks of this at this point... so please check it out, play some people online (you'll need a Reflect Account), and let me know!
