Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is an exceptional take on the tactical RPG and the addition of a stealth system certainly sets it apart from the crowd. Both genres blend together in a way that’s satisfying, challenging and well designed, while an engaging and well-written narrative drives the player forward. The difficulty might be an issue for those new to the genre, but for those seasoned in turn-based tactics, this is an absolute must buy.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is a charming, fun and well-made game with plenty of humor and excellent gameplay. It's an example of how you can expand on a tried-and-true formula in a way that makes it distinctive and exciting. The only thing that drags it down are some bugs and occasional difficulty spikes that feel more frustrating than fun. If you're a fan of XCOM-style games but want a new approach, you should absolutely try MYZ, which is one of the best surprises of the year.
Questo gioco è spettacolare. Ha una storia e una grafica eccezionali. La giocabilità è altrettanto ben organizzata, essendo un gioco strategico a turni. Bellissimo. È ottimo per chi vuole iniziare con il genere a turni. ITALIAN USER
This game is spectacular. It has a captivating story and graphics. The gameplay is equally well-structured, as it is a turn-based strategy game. Beautiful. It's great for beginners to the turn-based genre.
A tiny jewel in the turn-based strategy genre, Mutant Year Zero boasts a brilliant post-apocalyptic atmosphere and a cast of charismatic people (and animals). The combat system works perfectly largely thanks to the integrated stealth and scouting element. The difficulty may be harsh, but it’s also fair and makes the victories all the more rewarding.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is a good time and deserves to be checked out by fans of the genre. It isn’t something most will be able to jump right into with immediate success, but it’s a game that has a lot to offer for those willing to take the time to learn its ins and outs.
While it mostly iterates on the foundation laid by other games in the genre, quirky writing and characters help keep things fresh. Unfortunately, Mutant Year Zero’s short campaign and predictable story hold it back from being a slam dunk.
Вообще никогда не понимал пошаговые тактическые игра, и начиная в нее играть была к ней какае-то предвзятость с моей сторонны, но она просто перевернула мой взгляд на TRPG, сколько сил и матов я потратил на эту игру, но после прохождения боев получаешь такой кайф, от того что план твой выполнялся.
Honestly tried, but "didn't imbue". Interesting visual style, my favorite XCOM concept. Not a bad story line... But those flat jokes, no interesting narration, foolish cool-down skill mechanics, no cut-scenes.
Part of the game I passed through, but then I realized that I did not want to finish it.
Not bad game, but not interesting for me.
This game is great fun but way too short. There is virtually no replayability, as enemies are always in the same place with the same patrols. The characters have fun skills, and juggling skills and tactical position are the core of the game. It's way too short, pushing the limits of what is considered a full game. If there had been 15 to 20 more locations/missions, it would get a 100 from me.
If you like this type of game then it's apparently really good!
I don't.. I hate turn based combat. It looks good, game-play is good, the story isn't bad (or at least the first bit, i didn't get that far). But turn based fights... aarrgh!
