    Mutant Year Zero’s robust gameplay elements blend together magnificently well, collectively sitting on a story backdrop that’s intriguingly desperate, yet oddly comedic at just the right times. The game’s openness encourages experimentation and daring, with no shortage of lore and rewards dished out to keep its pace at a steady flow. The end result makes for one of the best tactical adventures of the gen.

    A unique, good-looking, intense experience that's more than worthy of existing in the same genre as an illustrious classic like XCOM.

    Mutant Year Zero: Road to Even enriches and rejuvenates a classic formula with a compelling narrative structure, an original exploration gameplay and a very good stealth component, delivering a game every lover of turn-based tactics should try.

    Mutant Year Zero is built especially for Turn-Based fans, and if you are one, you should play it.

    Smart tweaks to an aging formula, fun characters and an excellent new stealth element more than make up for a disappointing by-the-numbers premise. A true sleeper hit.

    For fans of XCOM and turn-based gaming in general then Mutant Year Zero: Road to Edenis definitely worth a look, especially if you are an Xbox Game Pass owner. The combat is satisfying and even though it isn’t you pulling the trigger directly, you can feel the impact each one makes.

    Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is a clever take on the turn-based RPG, blending it with freeform exploration in a way that feels natural and satisfying. It’s unfortunate that the rest of the game can’t match the well-realized concept, giving off the sense of a great execution that wasn’t fully baked. For the genre, it’s a surprisingly bite-size experience that, while may not be the most friendly to newcomers, fans should definitely check out.

The art and atmosphere is quite nice. There are a few thing that i did find annoying.For example you can buy items, but are not able to sell the ones you are not using. The other thing was difficulty it a bit unbalance. The game is still fun and people should give it a shot if the like turn base tactical games. Expand

Yeah, it's a bit short and some of the fights feel unbalanced but in the end it's very positive experience. Visuals are nice, soundtrack is okay and the gameplay is smooth & rewarding. Oh, and also the developers have fixed a lot of issues that were bothering player in original XCOM games which is also very nice, because these are conceptual changes. Expand

    Your chance to hit is 1-2-3-4 (25% 50% 75% 100%) / Enemy chance is 100% all the time. Nice garbage
