A review of the 2023 indie tactical strategy RPG Miasma Chronicles developed by The Bearded Ladies and published by 505 Games.
Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun – Aiko’s Choice is a great example of what an expansion should be as it gives fans more of what was good about the original game even if they might wish it was a little longer.
El Hijo – A Wild West Tale is a compelling twist on your typical stealth game adding in puzzle mechanics to create a satisfying stealth experience.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is a solid game with good werewolf combat that unfortunately has some flaws.
Corruption 2029 shares a lot in common with Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden and even if it never reaches the same level as its predecessor it still is a highly entertaining tactical strategy game.
Mutant Year Zero: Seed of Evil is basically what you would expect out of a DLC as it expands on what made the original game so enjoyable, but it doesn’t drastically change anything about the game.
The Church in the Darkness has some interesting ideas that could have lead to a good game but it is unfortunately derailed by unsatisfying and arguably broken gameplay.
A Plague Tale: Innocence may be on the easy side, but it combines a compelling story with great gameplay to create a truly engaging experience.
Due to a fantastic atmosphere, fun and yet challenging gameplay, and some original gameplay mechanics; Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden has arguably succeeded at improving upon its inspiration XCOM.
