Basically, the game asks a lot of you, and demands that you pay close attention to every decision you make. While that makes for a steep learning curve, requiring deep thought is hardly the worst sin a strategy game can commit. Slyly funny, satisfyingly deep and yet slick and simple to play, Massive Chalice is a huge return to form for a studio that is overdue a comeback.

6.7 / 10.0

Massive Chalice's aggressive tactical combat would be stronger without so many opportunities to lose due to bad luck.

​Double Fine's Massive Chalice takes XCOM's DNA in a fresh direction, but doesn't exceed it.

A strategy role-player that is filled with clever ideas and inspires great empathy with your characters, even if the battle system is a few steps behind XCOM.
