    Mutant Year Zero's clever focus on stealth and pre-combat preparation reward your diligence, its turn-based combat encounters are complex, and they help bolster its all-encompassing post-apocalyptic atmosphere. It is a superb tactical combat campaign that you shouldn't let sneak past.

    Based on classic mechanics, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden takes its own way in the genre of turn based tactics, pleasing our eyes and ears with huge graphics, nice music and duckly jokes.

    People are so used to specific styles of turn-based strategy that the way Mutant Year Zero approaches things may seem too different, potentially scaring off fans of the genre as well as newcomers. That being said, there is a lot to like between the polish of the game’s world-building, the genuinely unique approach to encounters, and the flexibility of each character’s skills. If you’re not afraid of a little challenge and are looking for a strategy title that oozes charm, then you may want to dip a toe in the Zone with Dux and Bormin.

    Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden provides an exciting take on the strategy RPG genre. Fans of X-COM or similar games shouldn’t skip this one.

    This is a great action and strategy game, that has the potential to turn into one of the best of the genre. It doesn’t achieve this because some of its design issues, but it is, overall, a great experience.

    From a gameplay perspective, Mutant Year Zero is a bold but brief experiment in the turn-based genre that largely pays off. Despite my complaints, I still enjoyed it, and I’d love to see more from the franchise. If you can stomach a huge letdown of an ending, the cleverly orchestrated combat and unique world are worth checking out.

    Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden feels entirely spread too thin. Without much depth to its name, it remains a unique setting devoid of personality.

    I love this game! The graphic style really speaks to me and sets the mood.

    I love this game! The graphic style really speaks to me and sets the mood.
    I haven´t been this excited about a strategic game with story since Front Mission 3 and Final Fantasy Tactics. This game is worth every penny and something for all RPG- and strategy lovers! =)

    Great turn based game with awesome humor. Only negative is that its a little short, but I'm sure the devs will work on that.

    A very good RPG/tactical game and there are not many of them in the X-com genre. The world is a fascinating place, full of details. The caraA very good RPG/tactical game and there are not many of them in the X-com genre. The world is a fascinating place, full of details. The cara design is great. As for gameplay, it deserves a few patches, to meet players more demanding than me.
    I look forward to learning more about this universe and its history...

    1) Has DRM junk called Denuvo 2) Cannot skip splash screens before the title screen 3) Graphic options are shockingly minimal feels like a1) Has DRM junk called Denuvo 2) Cannot skip splash screens before the title screen 3) Graphic options are shockingly minimal feels like a console port 4) Story becomes disappointing after the middle half of the game and overall the game is short 5) Current version has a serious bug when a character is getting out of hiding, and when the player switches to the next character too quickly after that: the former character gets stuck, becomes unavailable to selection 4) RNG is precomputed meaning you will always get the same outcome for the same action at a given point and place. It is quite pricey in comparison to other games, for what little it has to offer. Expand
