    It’s highly unlikely that The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics is going to be winning any awards for originality or genre-defining evolutions. That said, it’s a perfectly competent tactics experience, set in a world that many have grown to love. If you’re looking for solid gameplay mechanics, featuring an interesting narrative and meaty campaign, this may be just what the Mender ordered.

    The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics is a competent tactics game that doesn’t rely on its license for much beyond window dressing. Though the gameplay is entertaining and works well, there is little in this game that ties it strongly to property that spawned it. TDC:ART will be great for tactics fans that are looking for an inexpensive diversion, but Dark Crystal fans might be disappointed by the game’s underwhelming presentation.

    Classical, but also old-fashioned and sometimes cumbersome turn based tactics based on the Netflix show.

    Outside of some enemies with more health, Age of Resistance never asks much of the player in terms of Tactics.

    The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics is a simplistic strategy game with a bunch of RPG components.

    The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics has nothing to offer that isn’t better in other games, comics books, or movies.

    Take away the characters, myths, and other connections to the Dark Crystal universe and it’s easy to see that Age of Resistance Tactics has no real identity of its own.

    Im a huge fan of Dark Crystal, but this game is really boring and only recommended for fans of this type of turn based games.

Dark Crystal needs a full 3D adventure like Tomb Raider or Witcher. Expand
