    Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land is obviously a tablet game and if judged in comparison to PC titles, it falls behind in production values. This confirms the notion that tablet and smartphone games don't display the necessary depth to hold the gamer for long, however, when compared to the average tablet game, it really shines.

    I love how the graphics move so fluidly, and not stuttering. The setting, though to me it seems outside the Lovecraft Landscape, seems to fit in with the various creatures/enemies encountered during play. As some other people have said on different sites, the game ends far too soon, but replaying it doesnt seem to get boring. A limitation on the number of items you can carry does force the player to make do with what they have. I encountered a couple of crashes, though nothing critical (mostly when trying to retart a level immediately after launching the game). A minor annoyance is how the view re-focuses on the selected player following an action (in many cases, thats not a bad thing, but there are occasions when it irritates you (Ill confess, I havent really messed around much with any hotkeys, so there may be a simple method around some of my nit-picking). Overall, though, I really enjoy the game, and place it in the category of Torchlight. And, the price is definitely a bargain. Expand
