Pathway is a workmanlike XCOM-lite whose breezy tone stumbles into some tired tropes.
A worthwhile excursion, Pathway's unrealized potential hurts my heart.
Pathway can count on an outstanding art direction, but there are many issues preventing the players to fully enjoy the game.

Crisp combat let down by boring enemies, repetitive missions and a disconnected story.
Pathway throws in a lot of different gameplay elements, but it does everything well. The strategic combat is simple and fluid, and doesn't outstay its welcome. The vignette-like adventures are palatable and entertaining. And perhaps best of all, it's one of the best looking pixelized games in recent memory.
Pathway is a decent game, but it could be superb if a few more events were added into the randomised event tiles and the campaign storyline was strengthened. The combat has a solid strategy core to it, and the music and visuals are both brilliantly crafted. Variety is the spice of life and video games; Pathway just needs to add a bit more of that spice to make it stunning.
