Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden Reviews
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 is a compelling and enjoyable blend of exploration and tactical combat that will keep you playing day after day.
Mutant Year Zero was an entertaining strategy game. While it has some issues, they don't take away from the experience the game provides.
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.
With decent production values, interesting characters, visceral and demanding battles, and great writing, Mutant Year Zero is a game that is easy to recommend to those looking for a unique genre mashup in a fun, if not a bit overdone, setting. Playing on normal difficulty will require you to think a bit more tactically than that you're probably used to and it may cause some aggravation, but getting through the battles and progressing through the game is worth it.
Whether or not this stance too critical of the deep and well-executed combat, well, who the duck knows? If the idea of a hardcore XCOM-like experience in a post-apocalyptic mutant world sounds enticing, then, hey, this is essential.
Mutant Year Zero builds on some promising ideas but comes crashing down hard on an unsatisfying cliffhanger ending
In changing the interplay between stealth and combat, Mutant Year Zero spins an interesting and intense new perspective on turn-based tactics that pushes you to get the most out of every move you make.
Strong in personality, limited in scope, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is an interesting tactical game which could be very tough if played with the highest difficulty settings.

An emphasis on stealth, scouting, and ambushing give Mutant Year Zero's tactical combat a thrilling spin.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is a stellar first game in what could be a great series. It’s available ‘free’ for those with a subscription to Xbox Game Pass, but it’s worth the price of admission regardless. A great intro to the tactical strategy genre that eschews the stats-heavy side of things to keep it fun.
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 Eden is a charming, fun and well-made game with plenty of humor and excellent gameplay. It's an example of how you can expand on a tried-and-true formula in a way that makes it distinctive and exciting. The only thing that drags it down are some bugs and occasional difficulty spikes that feel more frustrating than fun. If you're a fan of XCOM-style games but want a new approach, you should absolutely try MYZ, which is one of the best surprises of the year.
Heavy round strategy fights in a closely narrated and graphically great to look at the post-apocalypse with fascinating animal heroes.

Mutant: Year Zero is one of the better turn-based strategy games in recent memory. It has some shortcomings, but most of them can be overlooked in light of its strongest elements.
Occasionally, Road to Eden comes to life with fun, challenging combat and a smart implementation of stealth. But even so, the feeling quickly disappears as you remember that there's little to enjoy after you've won. The game often seems empty and dull, with under-utilized characters and clumsy pacing, and not enough overarching mechanics to keep you engaged in the long run.
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.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is a nice mixture of tactical turn based combat with good story and characters that made a valuable game. Various gameplay elements, deep combat system, unpredictable AI, special art style and atmosphere and beautiful music are the good aspects of Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. But also there are issues like unbalance in combat system in some parts, weak level design, repetitive locations and unbalance between stealth and combat parts. If you are looking for a valuable tactical adventure game with deep combat system, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden would be a good choice for you to try.
