Iron Harvest Is A WWI-Era Steampunk RTS - 20 Minutes Of Gameplay
PC GamesSep 6, 2020The setting and the world structure in Iron Harvest are profound and perfectly accompanied by the imposing music - absolute goose bumps.
Sep 20, 2020For advanced players, it may be more of the same with a different paint job, but as someone who has had less engagement with RTS titles as a whole, Iron Harvest has been a really solid introduction for me. With a unique well-researched universe and context, and interesting combat mechanics, I look forward to diving further into multiplayer and to seeing more of the 1920+ universe down the road.
Sep 25, 2020Do I think Iron Harvest has the makings of legends? Not exactly. But I do think it offers a unique enough flavor for anyone looking to sate their RTS appetite will find a good offering here. You won’t see it headlining any major esports events, but not every game needs to be the next big thing to be worth it. Sometimes just being different and relatively well made makes it worth checking out.
Sep 9, 2020Iron Harvest is a good game. KING Art Games did a good job responding to the demand of the players who clearly enjoy these types of games, but with all the ideas they proposed, they could have done something really new. It has a lot of single player content and a good AI both in the campaign and in quick games.
Sep 5, 2020Iron Harvest presents a fascinating alternate reality of which I’d like to see more. The war is intense, the maps are rather pretty, and the units are an escalating maelstrom of steel and steam from which delightfully concepted war machines come into play. The battles are intense and the deployment of armaments can make one feel giddy in the rush of it as bullets and shells fly and explode. That said, some unfortunate aspects distract from the experience. The game’s increasing technology tree makes cover-based tactics a questionable proposition, the slowness can make downtime between events seem just a bit too long, and multiplayer is a bit too limited. The game is not horribly marred by these drawbacks, but best bear Wojtek can only carry the spirit of Polania so far with the baggage weighing him down.

Sep 3, 2020Iron Harvest, is a fun RTS that takes some inspiration from coh and dow, but does enough to set itself apart. It's not perfect and a littleIron Harvest, is a fun RTS that takes some inspiration from coh and dow, but does enough to set itself apart. It's not perfect and a little rough around the edges, but considering they are a indie studio making a big and reasonably polished rts it is nothing short of a miracle considering that its a kickstarter game.
Singleplayer wise its a good game, ai is a bit lacking but has alot of good content. Full singleplayer campaign with all factions, challenge maps that are quite difficult. Cutscenes arent the best but it's still a engaging story with fun characters. It's not exactly shakespare but it just has that right amount of cheese to be entertaining.
It's graphics and sound design are great, it is a cacophony of grinding metal, artillery shells and screams of war, it's simply lovely.
Gameplay wise It does not have as advanced mechanics as coh but it also doesn't have alot of the same frustrations when it comes to the multiplayer balance, or stale meta.
It has settings like showing damage numbers and xp gain that helps unmask dps. It doesn't have much hidden mechanics like Coh or dow 2 does.
I see some people complain about input lag but coming from coh 2 and dow 2 it's not that much difference, it's about the same.
Alot of the multiplayer battles is a bout positioning and how you micro your infantry, you don't need high apm to do so but do need to have keen awareness of the flow of this game which is somewhat slower than most RTS. This is a good thing as in the lategame things can get extremely hectic if your fighting good players. The missions themselves are great, and on hard is a decent challenge.
As I mentioned it is a bit rough, it needs some more polish. Luckily the devs have already released a roadmap detailing things coming after launch as well as being very communicative with players through discord.
The price is a bit steep, but considering it has a fleshed out campaign, challenge missions and a reasonably balanced multiplayer i'd say it is worth it if your keen on RTS games. It's a diamond in the rough, it's a solid base to keep improving upon.… Expand
Oct 10, 2021I'm updating the review after almost 1 year since purchasing the game.

The game has now a solid player base also online, with season rewards and rankings. Not the most famous strategy game but I'm quite sure you can find someone online to play with.
But, the learning curve is quite long and im playing mostly offline for that.
Gameplay is slow, do not expect fast paced rts like aoe or starcraft, especially mechs can get a solid 3 to 5 mins to go from a side to the other of a map, the problm is that units do not cap speed at the lowest one in the group so if you don't pay attention mechs will arrive when the party is already over for good. Yet, the several kind of units and mechs make every battle different and unique.
A thing I really don't like is that the game is very badly optimized. I do run a 5700xt and ryz 2600 still can't get more than 30 fps in most of crowded situations. Is not a game that gets much better at 60 fps but a minimum of 30 would be really the standard; changing res (1440p) or quality does not change much so I guess is really a matter of optimization.
This thing got slighty better with latest updates but still not enough.

IIt's basically a casual and reskinned version of Company of Heroes.
The campaign is very dull. Multiplayer is just like CoH but simpler.
I was skeptical when they were making the game like 5 years ago and it did not surprise me.
Is it based on a famous novel or something?
CoH is not a popular genre and dev added even less popular factors like dieselpunk and alt-history into it. Nice effort, dev. but it just won't work.… Expand

It's like you're constantly prodding all your units to do their job while they fight to just stand there. I gave up on trying to use grenades--they just don't ever happen for some reason. If you ever hit the RETREAT button, your entire army will run all the way across the map back to your base while you have zero control over them. You're just a spectator for like5 full minutes. Who's idea was that? In a very early mission you have to protect a train, but it's got literally ONE hit point. I instant-failed that mission 8 times because single men got through and shot the train. It suggested I build bunkers, but the game won't let you do that if you're maxed out on the number of you infantry (for some reason). So I had to intentionally kill a bunch of my men to build the bunkers to pass that stage. This is when the game was still trying to teach me how to play it! That's when I realized this thing wasn't tested enough for me to spend time on.… Expand
