SteamWorld Heist - E3 2015 Trailer
Jul 5, 2016Not much has changed since Steamworld Heist's debut last December: the game is still intoxicating and addictive, and now features the always welcome cross buy feature that will allow to play it both on the couch and during lunch breaks. If you love turn-based strategy games, it's a strong recommendation.
Jun 29, 2016With its addictive and accessible gameplay, not only is it the perfect title for players of any skill level to test their metal, but you'll also have such a good time playing it that you'll quickly forget it isn't the direct sequel to SteamWorld Dig that you may have been hoping for.
Jun 18, 2016I’m thoroughly enjoying playing this game and I appreciate being able to keep the level of difficulty at a setting I feel comfortable with before each mission, which can be adjusted or decreased if you so choose. I just wish they had a bit more to offer to offer in terms of objectives.
Jun 15, 2016A great game that may surprise fans of the previous game, but in a good way. The style and design of the world, characters and combat is fantastic. The turn-based combat is surprisingly fluid and fast-paced and there’s plenty of upgrades and variations to play with.

BUT WHY AM ADDICTED TO THIS GAME
I just got it thinking it wasI kinda dislike turn based bounce bullet games... found them kinda dumb :(
BUT WHY AM ADDICTED TO THIS GAME
I just got it thinking it was like the previous steamworld dig games (which I loved) and was angry when I found it was a bounce bullet turn based thing, almost deleted it... but then I played the first level, then the second, then I downloaded it to my Vita (you get that included in the ps4 game) and now I cant put it down Im around 20 levels now and still going strong. I even put down Monster hunter world to end this one first.
Dont know if its the mechanics, the colorful characters, the power ups, the simple map style (you jump from spaceship to spaceship, no loading times at all)
Those guys really made me want to play steamworld defense tower game now and I cant get it nowhere since its for Nintendo DS.
Truly a little gem all in all.
Give it a try, you wont let it down until you finish it.… Expand
Sep 30, 2016A very solid turn based strategy game. The successor to Steamworld DIg (one of my favorite indie games) is only a successor in terms ofA very solid turn based strategy game. The successor to Steamworld DIg (one of my favorite indie games) is only a successor in terms of atmosphere and steambots. At the games core is a very simple 2d side-scrolling turn based combat system that is fun and challenging, with rank up rewards (new perks for each characters as they level), and what I believe is random loot that you can choose to collect if you dare in each level. I felt like those two "side" elements keep this game fresh throughout this roughly 10-20 hours game (depending on your skill level/ if you grind or not). The story is really straightforward and is really a side-show, like steamworld dig, gameplay rules all, and this game does enough introducing new enemies , weapons, abilities, characters, etc . to satisfy the prototypical gamer as the game goes along. The only downside is that this game drags on too much for me, for me the game lost it's magic during the third world, with annoying enemies, and level design that hampered the experience for me just a little bit. But all in all a fun turn based game,with surprisingly a lot of depth (around 30-40 levels i think), and a decent challenge. If you mix gunbound and xcom, this is the baby you'll get, and it's a good one.… Expand

Unfortunately, the game ends up just being aI had high hopes going into this, as I really enjoyed the visuals and turn based combat.
Unfortunately, the game ends up just being a totally underwhelming experience. While the combat was really fun at first, it quickly became bland and I couldn't even bring myself to finish it. I got about halfway though the game before putting it down and just didn't feel like continuing.
Why? Because this game has the most boring progression system I've ever encountered. While it may seem like there are dozens of options, with 10 different robots you can recruit to your team (11 including a DLC character), it doesn't really matter because most people are going to play the same way. You're going to have 1 or 2 characters sniping and 1 tank character with high HP using a grenade launcher or rocket launcher for big damage up close. That's pretty much it....
As far as leveling up goes, this is handled poorly. Each character can only gain up to level 10 max, which you will easily do with your favorites before finishing the 2nd galaxy in the game (There are 3 galaxies total). Each time you gain a level, you have no control over how the character develops. Sometimes you get a cool ability, but other times you only gain +1 HP max.... TOTALLY LAME.
Don't even get me started on the weapons. This game has a tier system for weapons, which is extremely boring and I hate when games do this. the farther your get in the game, the higher tier weapons you find, but none of them are necessarily better than others, which means it doesn't matter too much which ones you choose. There is no way to upgrade weapons or improve any of their stats.
Sniper scope pistols are poorly balanced in all tiers. You will either find ones that do high damage at the cost of not being able to move after shooting, or lower damage ones that allow movement after shooting. The problem is, most missions require your characters to keep moving and exploring, so of course you're not going to just give them a gun that prevents movement after shooting. This makes high damage sniper weapons completely useless! The only exception is for boss battles, but there are only about 3 of those...
Overall, the game let me down and I couldn't even finish it. I got about halfway through the 2nd galaxy, but stopped caring. It's not a bad game, but it's boring, which is why I give it a 4/10… Expand
