Top Critic Average
But therein lies the beauty: Atlas Reactor is something special amid a world filled with one too many MOBAs, team shooters, and card games. I truly hope it takes off like wildfire, though I fear it may be destined to be niche with its Competitive XCOM flare and somewhat steep learning curve. Once Atlas Reactor clicks for you, I promise you’ll be hooked. It hits the sweet spot in match length, has loads of replay value, and scratches the competitive itch. More than that, its community seems bright and helpful, the gameplay itself doesn’t require 200 APM skills, and you’ll succeed with quick thinking and careful tactics more than pitch-perfect aiming.
Atlas Reactor is one of a kind. An incredibly inventive, addictive and compelling online fast-paced turn-based tactical game. It looks fantastic, plays great and has so little to bring it down that it's well worth anybody’s time.
Atlas Reactor has successfully blended turn-based strategy with competitive multiplayer, and in addition has great style and personality. The big question is whether we will see a dedicated fan base and have players in it for the long haul.
I usually never enjoy MOBA games, but Atlas Reactor is something extra. The Xcom meets Overwatch gameplay combined with the low price makes the game worthwhile for fans of both genres. It's not perfect but it's really enjoyable.
Atlas Reactor shows that even if there are no new ideas anymore, there are still new ways to use the old ideas and make them interesting again. Continued support and a community will hold it up but we need some serious expansion to really make it great. Even still, what is here is very solid and worth the time of any strategy lover.
Atlas Reactor provokes an impending tension, utters of despair at turns wasted, and cries of joy at enemies falling victim to your ten turns of dastardly planning. Don’t let this game pass you by, it’s well worth a shot.
While the developers did not excel at capturing my attention until I had given it a few more chances than an average game, Atlas Reactor proves to be genuinely unique in its style and definitely suited for those looking for strategy without the clickfest.
