Critic Reviews for SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition

SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition is a fantastic port of a fantastic game, and it fits perfectly on the Switch. Deep, engaging gameplay and stylish presentation combine to make this one of the standout indie releases of the year; this is a great example of a well put-together game. If you are at all a fan of strategy games, or are just looking for a fun diversion to occupy your time over the next couple weeks, pick up this game. It puts a neat twist on standard turn-based strategy gameplay, and stands as another fantastic entry in the SteamWorld series.

SteamWorld Heist bought me after fifteen minutes of fun, and regret after turning off the console compensated for the launch of the edition on PlayStation Vita. I do not regret a single penny spent on this small, but unusual work. That's my best invested money in June.

The story of SteamWorld Heist is set a few hundred years after the original Dig, when robots have been forced into space when the earth was destroyed. As captain Piper, you’ll traverse the galaxy, collect crew members, and take down the Scrappers while uncovering as deeper, more sinister secret. The levels are randomized too, meaning no two playthroughs will be the same. This is excellent because SteamWorld Heist is definitely a game you’ll enjoy playing enough to try it again and again. The only thing that could have made this Ultimate Edition even better would have been a co-op and head-to-head multiplayer mode.

SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition executes tactical, turn-based combat well and greatly improves on the original, all while adding the latest DLC into the equation, which is essentially more icing on the cake.

Image & Form would have committed an unforgivable crime to deny the joy of playing its Steamworld Heist even to all the owners of Playstation 4 and Vita: after all, we are talking about one of the most eccentric and entertaining turn-based strategic of recent times.

SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition brings together everything that made the original release such a breath of fresh air in a crowded turn-based strategy field, and adds in all the post-release content to well and truly make this live up to its name. With perfect touch-screen controls throughout in handheld mode, added to the already excellent controller support from other iterations, this is easily one of the most accessible games in the genre, and definitely one of the most enjoyable on Nintendo Switch, full stop.

With five difficulty levels and randomly generated ships, I can honestly recommend SteamWorld Heist to anyone. The world is rich, the combat is engaging and the portability of the Switch pairs perfectly with the short missions (even if the game is beautiful on a big TV). Plug in your headphones and play this game.

SteamWorld Heist has always been a great game and the Switch version might just be the best way to experience it.
