    Phoenix Point: Behemoth Edition is a fantastic turn-based strategy game. Its unrivaled world-building and innovative combat make this a must-play for fans of the genre. If you can overcome the lack of variety in the early game, then be prepared to lose hours upon hours as you race to save humanity from complete obliteration.

    It definitely has its issues but I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Phoenix Point: Behemoth Edition. From its clever battle mechanics to its depiction of a world at the brink of utter annihilation; it's one immersive and exceptionally rewarding SRPG.

    An SRPG big hitter just got bigger, but did it get better? If you are up to the challenge, this is the best the genre has to offer on PS4.

    On paper it does everything XCOM does and more, but poor balancing and overcomplicated rules means it’s just not as much fun.

    Phoenix Point: Behemoth Edition is a strategic RPG with uninspired artificial intelligence, technical problems and with some drops in framerate on PlayStation 4. Despite an engaging story, it is a porting that doesn't bring big news.

    Phoenix Point is a game I desperately wanted to love. It has exceptionally complex and deep mechanics, solid turn-based combat systems and fun global strategy gameplay, coupled with a decent story and some decent new additions to provide it its own identity. It is also, however, riddled with technical problems, inconsistent mechanics and frustrating difficulty spikes. Like a true phoenix, it can rise with glory when it wants to, I only wish it didn’t thud back down to ashes so frequently.

    Between combat with free-aim and comprehensive exploration through the Geoscape, Phoenix Point: Behemoth Edition has a lot of content to offer. Like other strategy games, such as Empire of Sin, players can win multiple ways, and there are plenty of chances to lose. Unfortunately, the console edition has a lot of issues with loading and crashing, but as long as players have the patience, the game is still enjoyable. Phoenix Point: Behemoth Edition comes with the base game and four DLC expansions for players to tactfully explore.

    I am very disappointed by this version. Here are my gripes.
    1. Crashes way too much.
    2. Tactical nonsense. For instance, an enemy cannot be seen by standing directly below your units if yours are on a higher level. Bears no relation to reality and was evidently coded by a fool. Players units can look round corners but not over ledges? Sack whoever did this.
    3. Psychic warfare? Give us a rest. Leave it out. Its bollocks.
    4. The air to air combat is the most ridiculous, childish, space invaders nonsense. Again, who thought this would be a good idea? Its poorly thought out rubbish.
    5. The politics are half baked nonsense culled from any half dozen pulp sci fi novels. Come up with something original for goodness sake.
    Good bits.
    1. Tactical movement and firing are more flexible.
    Overall? Wait till you can get it for a fiver.

    Я так и не смог оценить игру, вылеты каждые 2 миссии, а иногда и при сохранении.
