I love this game - been playing it since 1995 and is my game of choice to introduce new players to the miniature wargaming hobby. The rules flow, it is quick and flexible.

Not as high on the complexity scale as it might first appear. The troop quality and morale mechanisms give the game a good feel. Plays very quickly and accommodates a wide range of situations without breaking down.

Best generic sci-fi ground combat game there is. Can be adapted to any background/storyline you want. Chit pull system was confusing at first then (after a bit of some analysis) the simple beauty of it becomes apparent.

DS2 is an excellent game. If you like 1/300th scale combat, DS2 is a great system to use for micro-armor combats in modern and near future settings.

Rules are currently out of print but made available as a free download by the publisher, GZG. Will cross post here shortly. Had to down grade my rating from a 10 to an 8. Not pleased with the design or combat systems. Still a very good set for large sci-fi games.

Best "stand level" modern/SF minis game ever written. Love the command and morale system...the vehicular design system can lead to munchkinism.

Dirtside II is an excellent scifi microarmor game. The rules are generic enough to use whatever figs you want. Nice command, control, and morale rules. The chit damage system is a little annoying, but that's my only complaint.

Even though its a decade old, its has held up well. Sci-Fi theme is well done in this game, the best part being the TOTAL customization of your entire force to suit your style. This is a much refreshing change from something like 40K where you are restricted to the list of your chosen army faction, a few of which seemed to overpower the others. Also the variety of unit types is very comprehensive. Only slight complaint is the chit draw system for damage can be tedious at times.

A great miniature system, with simple rules and a really clever command / morale system. Very few charts, little bookkeeping and quick to play. Can cover small battalion-sized games, as it is a 1:1 scale system. I'm sure you can turn it into a 1:5 and play divisional games ;-)! (Sci-Fi Spearhead anyone?)
The vehicle design rules are really good as well.

A very diverse and fun game system of universal use for future miniatures. A lot of room for house rules,a nd I like the emphasis on morale and troop quality, as well as the dueling dice mechanic. I would say the rules are somewhat dated for a future war scenario in light of new technologies, but again, you could modify house rules for ISR, UAVs, AI, etc.
