    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.

    With its interesting world and characters and excellent gameplay mechanics which advance the genre with the introduction of stealth and seamless exploration, Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden is one of the best turn-based tactical games released in recent years. The story may have received a better focus, and the combat may have been a little less frustrating, but don't let these small issues block you from getting the game if you're a fan of the genre, as Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden is well worth your time and money.

    Quite difficult turn based strategy battles in a densely narrated and graphically great looking post-apocalypse with fascinating animal heroes.

    Mutant Year Zero is a splendid romp through an apocalyptic world in which tactical stealth battles are the meat of the experience served with a deep, fascinating and carefully crafted world, inhabited by funny and interesting characters.

    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.

    From a gameplay perspective, Mutant Year Zero is a bold but brief experiment in the turn-based genre that largely pays off. Despite my complaints, I still enjoyed it, and I’d love to see more from the franchise. If you can stomach a huge letdown of an ending, the cleverly orchestrated combat and unique world are worth checking out.

    Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden feels entirely spread too thin. Without much depth to its name, it remains a unique setting devoid of personality.

    For an "indy" game I could believe how incredibly gorgeous the graphics were.

    Totally intuitive controls - except, I wish I could swap gear
    For an "indy" game I could believe how incredibly gorgeous the graphics were.

    Totally intuitive controls - except, I wish I could swap gear and party members more easily. To get limited gear you have to "unload" one character, swap them out and then load the other. That said, very good system.

    Good plot.

    Amazing voice acting.

    Slightly short, but great start. If they keep it up, I can't wait for a sequel.

    Corny but HILARIOUS.

    Suggestion: Zoom please :)

The caraA very good RPG/tactical game and there are not many of them in the X-com genre. The world is a fascinating place, full of details. The cara design is great. As for gameplay, it deserves a few patches, to meet players more demanding than me.
    I look forward to learning more about this universe and its history...
