    There is a lot to Antihero, and I could never explain it all in this small wall of text, so just do yourself a favor and grab it for their extraordinarily low price of $15 (or less). It is well worth the price they’re asking, and I would recommend dragging a friend in with you on the purchase so you can enjoy what I think are some of the game’s best qualities.

    Anyone who is a turn based strategy game fan should be checking out Antihero, which deserves to find an audience so that its multiplayer base can flourish. This is a game that is easy to learn with a campaign that teaches you all the basics, but it can then throw a number of challenging scenarios at you. Antihero is a game that offers something a little different in the strategy genre, that’s easy to learn before throwing some challenging scenarios at you, and is genuinely fun to play.

    Whether one is considering the challenging campaign mode or the endlessly replayable multiplayer, Antihero is a top-notch electronic boardgame. It rewards players who learn the systems, but contains just enough random chance to keep things interesting. As a game of stealthy moves, hidden trickery and careful manipulation, this is one of those occasions where the setting and gameplay are perfectly matched, offering a great experience for any would-be thief.

    A charming board game-esque strategy game that doesn't go quite as far as it should have.

    Antihero is a solid turn-based strategy game, with some nice ideas in a system that is simple but effective. There is also a well crafted Campaign, and multiplayer modes that are perfect for every kind of player.

    I can appreciate simplicity, but in this case I would welcome a wider variety of maps, buildings and units. Still when I launched Antihero to check something while writing the review, I got immediately carried away by its addictive asynchronous multiplayer, forgetting why I launched it in the first place.

    Antihero is a good-looking strategy game with complexity to discover.

    Amazing game! The core gameplay is just amazing. I've played about a 100games (about 40hours), and am in the top 10 right now. As a strategyAmazing game! The core gameplay is just amazing. I've played about a 100games (about 40hours), and am in the top 10 right now. As a strategy turn based game it has enough depth for many many different strategies that can be changed on the fly depending on some rng of the city district placement and your opponent playstyle. It is a snowball game, yet most of the games are quite close. Do you invest in gangs, master thief, or the economy? - The campaign is quite short and should be looked at as only the tutorial, the real game is in the multiplayer. Matchmaking sometimes lasts only a SECOND! although it can go to about 2 minutes as well. - TLDR: Amazing core gameplay, that will only get better with patches! Expand
