    The monsters are creepy, the combat is great, and the setting is endlessly explorable – Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics has plenty going for it, and yet it still feels underdeveloped. The RPG elements are thin, and the story is little more than a skeletal justification for the next skirmish. There’s plenty of stellar design here, but it feels like a preview of a more robust experience. It’s a fantastic use of the Cthulhu Mythos and a solid game, but I’m guessing the franchise will have more to offer next time.

    Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is competently built, attractive to look at in some areas, but rather bland in others. The gameplay was approachable and the difficulty curve was shallow, so players experienced in the genre may find it to be too easy to provide a meaningful challenge. Conversely, players new to the genre, or those that aren’t especially good at it, will likely find it to be more engaging.

    Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics does some things right, but falls short to what it wants to be. The game is shallow and repetitive to the point that it becomes totally uninteresting in the later stages. Without no meaningful story and no deep, complex tactical decisions, Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is a missed opportunity and a disappointment for fans of the Call of Cthulhu universe.

    Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is, honestly, a bit of a disappointment. It’s a perfectly competent tactics game, and there is a solid 10 hours of narrative here for you to explore. However, it’s mostly upsetting because of the flecks of brilliance that don’t quite fit together, and the good ideas that aren’t explored enough.

    I think Achtung! will probably bring you some slight joy if you are both a fan of Lovecraft and Isometric tactics games, but it’s hard to feel it fulfils the original IP when it’s so lacking in narrative.

    Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics has a solid gameplay, partially wasted by lack of variety and dumb enemies.

    Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics has the most primitive levels I have ever seen in a turn-based strategy game, coupled with an equally primitive AI. Combat system has quite a few fine ideas, though, but they're not worth it to suffer through 10 hours of identical gameplay situations.

    Wow they missed the boat with this game. Looks like the guy who built the engine did his job but then the person who designed the levels wasWow they missed the boat with this game. Looks like the guy who built the engine did his job but then the person who designed the levels was asleep at the wheel. You have no meaningful decision or exploration and you are 100% straightjacketed so you have no choices. The game might as well just play each level without your input. I usually love games like this but this is the worse level designs I have every see in a tactics game. Expand
