  1. A much deeper, more involving story, packed with lots of secrets and more combat, Wayward is a sequel than many games should look up to as the right way to follow up a successful title.

    Dig down even deeper that you'll truly begin to appreciate what benefits it has to offer -- an incredibly challenging Nightmare setting, solid character designs, intelligent controls, and old-fashioned arcade shooting and slashing to name but a few of them.
  3. 80
    It blends the genre lines seamlessly in a fast-paced game that is both fun and challenging. The new story line and gameplay improvements will appeal to fans of the original and it also does a good job of bringing newcomers up to speed.

    It's a decent little game but without a four-player mode it's only half as fun as it could be.
  5. May contain a high replay value (for some), but in the end that was not even enough to keep me playing. The uninspired and flawed game play hurts this title in the long run.
  6. Assuming you have friends then you're in for an average time too. Are these levels atmospheric or just murky? Murky.
  7. Despite copious blood splatters and a smattering of "adult" language, the gameplay is strictly for kids. However, after about a half an hour even little ones will pooh-pooh this game in favor of just about anything else.

    Great game. Thought it was way too easy at first, but curve goes way up after the werewolf. Don't go back to milk continues, and you Great game. Thought it was way too easy at first, but curve goes way up after the werewolf. Don't go back to milk continues, and you have a very good, and difficult game to master! Expand
