Hard West isn't the deepest game of its kind, but it does a good job of walking the line between cold, hard tactics, and Weird West-style personality. Its mystically-inspired abilities add a fun twist to the X-Com formula, even if they do remove some of the need for tactical forsight. A richer world outside of combat would have been nice, but as is, Hard West still presents a fun, unique take on turn-based tactics.

No Recommendation / Blank

Rough round the edges and clunky in parts, Hard West's refreshing take on turn-based strategy is still worth saddling up for.

The presentation is aced, but Hard West's turn-based combat is too rote to be engrossing.

Hard West is a satisfyingly creepy mash-up of six-gun horror and tactical combat.
