Critic Reviews for Encased

It doesn't quite manage to reach Fallout's brilliance and quality, but Encased is still a fun experience, capable of providing lots of meaningful possibilities and an interesting new post-apocalyptic world to explore.

Very complete and very well written, Encased is a good old-fashioned RPG that knows how to take into account your decisions and in which aficionados of the genre (in need of Fallout first of the name, but also in more recent Wasteland or Divitiny Original Sins) will be delighted to immerse themselves.

Encased: A Sci-Fi Post-Apocalyptic RPG is a worthy purchase for all fans of classic Fallout games, thanks to a well-crafted post-apocalyptic setting, great worldbuilding, reactive world, and solid overall gameplay. The clunky interface, basic combat, verbose writing, and overwhelming amount of status conditions to keep track of damage the experience a bit, however, making Encased a game that only the most die-hard RPG fans will enjoy right from the start.

Some jank does not stop Encased from being one of the most ambitious and greatest CRPGs in years.

Dark Crystal Games’ passion for this type of game shines through in every facet. They have made every attempt to make the game as accessible to a wide range of players as possible. The game feels tight in terms of performance and I encountered no bugs. How much one will enjoy the game really depends on how much one will put into it.

Encased is an old school RPG with lots of content and an exciting story. However, it is perhaps a little bit too faithful to the classics.

Encased is a strategy RPG with lots of depth and options that suffers from stiffness and imbalanced gameplay

Solid RPG with a lot of good ideas, promising first half and quite a few flaws in the second half.
