A diet XCOM in a fascinating techno-cultist skin.

One of the best entries in the Warhammer 40.000 universe. Mechanicus offers a fantastic story, an outstanding soundtrack, and a sick voyage into the dark future of mankind where only war can be found.

An excellent way to take this tactical game to Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. The same game, but with some additions and a great plot to enjoy.

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus is an interesting entry into an increasingly saturated genre that manages to stand out on its own merits

There’s just no bite to it, and it sadly ends up undermining itself as a result. If difficulty options get patched in though, grab it in a heartbeat. It’s so close to being fantastic it hurts.

Warhammer 40k Mechanicus contains a bevy of interesting narrative and mechanical decisions, but this tactics game is also marred by questionable implementations of those decisions. This Switch port often feels poorly thought out, but if you can make your way past its annoyances, you will find an engaging experience, filled with love for 40k lore. I hope to see more from this team, as their creativity and skill shows through with charm, even if this entry was not ultimately without flaws.

For those who enjoy strategy games, the interesting puzzles and challenges this game provides will be welcomed with open arms. Mastering the combat system and crafting the perfect build for your Tech Priests will encourage replayability, although the differences between the PS4 port and the original PC version stand out significantly.

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus is a good game, once you take some time to learn strategy and tactics.

Critical hits prevent the Necron from using their regenerative abilities, while certain weapons offer escalating buffs that give extra damage multipliers the more you use them. These elements combine to make fights satisfyingly varied from mission to mission.
