Top Critic Average
Like a board game you play to death then put on the shelf to bring out on special occasions, but with street urchins and priest-stabbing.
A very different kind of turn-based game, that proves multiplayer action doesn't have to involve first person shooting.
Anyone who is a turn based strategy game fan should be checking out Antihero, which deserves to find an audience so that its multiplayer base can flourish. This is a game that is easy to learn with a campaign that teaches you all the basics, but it can then throws a number of challenging scenarios at you. Antihero is a game that offers something a little different in the strategy genre, that's easy to learn before throwing some challenging scenarios at you, and is genuinely fun to play.
If you're looking for a smart turn-based strategy with plenty of ways to play, I'd certainly recommend playing this.
A tabletop-esque strategy game with surprisingly variable routes to success, Antihero is stylish, fresh, and beautifully designed.
It's big on personality too, from the wide choice of thief avatars to the Gangs Of New York toughs and the comedy cockernee urchins, and I dig the Darkest Dungeon But Chipper cut-out art style.
Antihero is a charming aesthetic package wrapped around a solid tactical core.
Despite some flaws, and peaks of excessive difficulty or easiness, Antihero is an enjoyable game. It's not particularly excellent, but it can be a nice title for turn-based strategy fans.

I know Antihero isn't going to suddenly become the most popular game and get Call of Duty numbers, but it definitely deserves your support if you like well made surprisingly deep strategy games that are easy to pick up and even easier to get hooked. Where else can you play a video game over days if not weeks with email notifications letting you know when your opponent has moved? I highly recommend everyone try that experience at least only once.
