Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden Reviews
The game is amazingly well-polished, the fighting is like a tiny and as atmospheric environment as the environment has been framed with a clear love for the Mutant world and the characters that populate it.
While Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden has managed to build a cohesive system for tactical turn-based battles to take place in, it's far too difficult for the average player. Hardcore genre fanatics are sure to get a kick out of proceedings, but those looking for a more introductory take on things will find more frustration than progress.
With its interesting world and characters and excellent gameplay mechanics which advance the genre with the introduction of stealth and seamless exploration, Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden is one of the best turn-based tactical games released in recent years. The story may have received a better focus, and the combat may have been a little less frustrating, but don't let these small issues block you from getting the game if you're a fan of the genre, as Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden is well worth your time and money.
If you’re not afraid of a little challenge and are looking for a strategy title that oozes charm, then you may want to dip a toe in the Zone with Dux and Bormin.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Heaven is a game with a lot of charisma thanks to an exceptional characterization of the world and the characters that populate it. Unfortunately, the mix of turn-based tactics and stealth isn't always working as it's supposed to, but the game developed by The Bearded Ladies is still able to entertain for about fifteen hours. Maybe next time it would be appropriate to put on the gameplay the same care given to the narrative aspects of the game.

While it mostly iterates on the foundation laid by other games in the genre, quirky writing and characters help keep things fresh. Unfortunately, Mutant Year Zero's short campaign and predictable story hold it back from being a slam dunk.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden - Deluxe Edition features a good balance between exploration and strategy and a simple but interesting plot - when all these factores come together, the result is a game that does a very laudable job at keeping the player interested. While a multiplayer mode would be more than welcome, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden - Deluxe Edition has enough qualities to be one of the best of its kind in the Nintendo Switch.

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is one of the best additions to the tactical RPG genre years; a well-written and rewarding experience that combines the creative use of stealth found in the legacy of its ex-Hitman developers with a world that's full of interesting characters and ideas. Almost every game in this genre lives in the shadow of XCOM, but Mutant offers enough new ideas to set itself apart. The visual downgrade on the Switch version can be a little hard on the eye, but considering how this sacrifice has preserved the quality of the game within, we'd call that a worthy trade-off.
If you’re looking for a turn-based strategy game with satisfying character progression on the game (that won’t take up over 80 hours of life) look no further than Mutant Year Zero.
Mutant Year Zero injects its post-apocalyptic world with winning characters and a perfected, yet difficult approach to tactical and stealth combat.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden it's a very solid and brave game, with it's smart combination of stealth, exploration, and tactic combat.

When you consider that Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden came out of nowhere, the insanely polished tactics gameplay and charming characters are absolutely remarkable. If you're looking for a darkly charming way to burn hours over the holidays, look no further than this apocalyptic hellscape. Who knew that the end of civilization as we know it could be so damn entertaining?
Though it can be difficult to get through the beginning hours, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is a clever, funny, and exciting tactical RPG.
Heavy round strategy fights in a closely narrated and graphically great to look at the post-apocalypse with fascinating animal heroes.

Elegant design, streamlined but effective storytelling, and expertly executed game systems make the Road to Eden a journey well worth undertaking.
Despite the desire to reiterate the winning formula of Fireaxis, every now and then the title shows the side to some problems, especially in terms of variety.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden feels entirely spread too thin. Without much depth to its name, it remains a unique setting devoid of personality.
Mutant Year Zero makes some subtle innovations for the tactical strategy genre outside of combat that transforms this from just another XCOM clone to a clever mixture of stealth, tactics, and RPG mechanics adding up to an adventure that's highly recommended.
Mutant Year zero is a nice surprise. A very good tactical game with a lot of arguments to please fans of the genre. A beautiful artistic direction, interesting characters, a quality cast, an efficient and deep combat system, a dynamic exploration system... This is another approach to tactical and a must have in this type of game in 2018.

Mutant Year Zero feels most of all like a promising start for something potentially greater. Indeed, for as much as the game offers an intense, occasionally brilliant spin on turn-based strategy, it’s tough not to imagine how a sequel could improve the writing and the exploration to realize what is, at this point anyway, mostly just a lot of potential.
