    Some jank does not stop Encased from being one of the most ambitious and greatest CRPGs in years.

    A quality cRPG in the footsteps of classic Fallout that will satisfy fans of the genre. Some flaws do not allow it to reach the top scoring levels but in any case it is clearly a worthwhile purchase.

    Dark Crystal Games’ passion for this type of game shines through in every facet. They have made every attempt to make the game as accessible to a wide range of players as possible. The game feels tight in terms of performance and I encountered no bugs. How much one will enjoy the game really depends on how much one will put into it.

    Encased is a very classic isometric RPG that harks back to early Fallout. There is great care taken in the game world and fans of the genre will get lost in it. It's a shame that the combat system isn't particularly layered.

    I will say the amount of art, voice overs, and unique environments is really impressive. You’ll still have to do plenty of reading but they do a good job of making the world look, feel, and sound unique. Everything feels handmade and it almost makes me think if this developer team remade Fallout I just might make time for that trip back to the wasteland.

    If hard sci-fi sends you to sleep, you might want to give this a miss, because every now and then, the story be can a little dry. But for everyone else, if you’re prepared to give Encased your time and attention, and overlook what are mostly fixable flaws, you’ll discover an engaging, compelling and pleasingly deep RPG.

    The world of Encased is scant on exciting adventures, yet it’s overflowing with gibberish to the point that it breaks any suspension of disbelief.

    Thus, the developers managed to create a good game with "Encased". The storyline is exciting and the character creation is second to none. TheThus, the developers managed to create a good game with "Encased". The storyline is exciting and the character creation is second to none. The voice actors also do a good job and create an intense storyline. The different choices are fun and give the game a very special depth. The various battles are decent, but more would have been possible here. If you would like to experience a good role-playing game on the PC again and don't want to spend a lot on it, you should take a closer look at "Encased".
