“Tactical” is a word that not only governs much of John Wick’s dress sense, but is also a gaming sub-genre that probably sends shivers down the spine of many younger gamers. But to then pile on descriptors like – “turn based strategy”- I would suspect any self-respecting, Fortnite playin tween would throw a tantrum, yell at his Mum and storm out of the room. So in this day and age of Video Games, will we ever see games of a tactical ilk again?
Well thankfully yes. For those of us who remember games like Laser Squad, the Golden Age of Sid Meiers, Civilisation and of course XCOM, the genre lives on…… boy does it live on!
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is an evolved version of the XCOM gameplay model, but with a heavy dose of exploration and stealth, and I have to say…….it is Brilliant. (And there is not a silly dancing or angsty teens to be seen.)
