    An enjoyably grotty world hampered by unintuitive controls. [Christmas 2015, p.87]

    Wasteland 2 is an excellent game, but at the same time does nothing particularly new or ground-breaking within the RPG genre. It’s easy to see why PC gamers have become so enamoured with it, yet it’s hard to imagine Wasteland garnering the same appeal on consoles. Despite inXile’s valiant effort in bringing the game to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, it never feels quite at home.

    An old school computer role-playing game is a rare sight on consoles, but this unofficial predecessor to Fallout is more than just a nostalgia-fuelled curio.

I echo what one of the 'professional' reviews said. It's a bit rough at first, but if you push through and give it a few, then you'll quickly fall in love with the game. GREAT environment! Decent gameplay, perfect graphics (for what it is), and only 40 bones. If you like old-school games, this is a perfect find! Full Review »

There's nothing on the PS4 like it which is another reason it's so enjoyable. It's a little rough starting out, so don't get discouraged. Once you invest some time into your Rangers and immerse yourself in the lore, Wasteland 2 really takes off. The controls are as well mapped as they can be for a PC game running on a console. That doesn't mean that they aren't awkward and cumbersome at times though. The framerate can get a little iffy at times, but it definitely doesn't make the game unplayable. If you're looking for a deep game that can easily fill your time for 80-100 hours, give Wasteland 2 a shot. Plus it's only $39.99! Thanks for reading. Full Review »
