Critic Reviews for Renowned Explorers: International Society

I'm not chomping at the bit to keep playing, but I am curious to delve deeper. Different combinations of explorers can beget different tactics both in and out of battle. That thought alone is enough to keep me from uninstalling it.

A charming and unique turn-based adventure that hides an intricate battle system behind all the whimsy.

Renowned Explorer is a pretty original experience, with various features which allow us to customize our personal adventure. It's a pity that the game offers a lot of boring and redundant situations to the player.

With its mix of board game and RPG mechanics, there's a little something for everyone, and if you've found yourself wondering where the idea of games being made just for fun has gone, look no further. It's an easy recommendation for anyone who'd like some relaxing, enjoyable game time.

A fun take on the strategy genre which favours being played over and over again.

So whether you're off finding lost forgotten celtic artefacts in the Scottish Highlands, delving deep into ancient Egyptian tombs, or scaling the heady heights of Shangri-La, it's clear that Renowned Explorers has a lot to offer. While in truth, it's possible that some might tire of its regimented systems and board game esque beats, the fact remains that Renowned Explorers still stands as one of the best surprises of the year so far that wannabe adventurers of any age can enjoy.

The game has a lot of complexity but thankfully has a wonderful, mostly text-based, tutorial system which sprinkles in some actual in-game play. It’s a nice system to introduce you to, and walk you through, the rather complex game elements. The game is a unique turn-based tactical RPG that will initially require some trial and error as well an upfront time investment, including potentially starting over early, to learn the mechanics but it’s an exploration worth pursuing!
