More than just XCOM with talking animals, this inventive strategy game has plenty of new ideas of its own – even it's a little lacking in replayability.

Mutant Year Zero builds on some promising ideas but comes crashing down hard on an unsatisfying cliffhanger ending

An emphasis on stealth, scouting, and ambushing give Mutant Year Zero's tactical combat a thrilling spin.

Mutant Year Zero seems like the natural evolution for tactics games. The real-time aspects make things move faster and add a unique layer of tension. On the story end of things, it manages to keep you interested until the linear campaign finishes up. You won't find a groundbreaking narrative but it doesn't overstay its welcome, and the characters are just charming enough to keep you invested.

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is an exceptional take on the tactical RPG and the addition of a stealth system certainly sets it apart from the crowd. Both genres blend together in a way that's satisfying, challenging and well designed, while an engaging and well-written narrative drives the player forward. The difficulty might be an issue for those new to the genre, but for those seasoned in turn-based tactics, this is an absolute must buy.

The Bearded Ladies has created an impressive game that is able to make use of the XCOM formula and take it to the next level adding some exploration and stelath mechanics. The result is a fun, inteligent and original videogame that exceeds every expectation.
