Forged of Blood is a very good Xcom-like game, using a lot of different new mechanics. Overall, I like the difficulty of the game, and the art style isn’t hard to look at, making for long sessions of “just one more turn”. A lot of the little things about it, really make it unique, from the spell crafting, to how you can level up using a classless system. The gameplay is very tough, but when you win, you have a feeling of satisfaction. I’m going to give Forged of Blood the Thumb Culture Gold award, as it may not appeal to a lot of people, but fans of tactical RPGs are going to love it.

Forged of Blood is ambitious well beyond its means, and it has so many systems at play at once that there are moments where, mechanically, they fall down.

Long story short, Forged of Blood is the best example of a project which was meant to be big but ended up being small. I wouldn't have been so disappointed if it was a "good" small rather a than "bad" small.

Forged of Blood has a solid foundation, but the games mechanics don't always mesh together, often causing too many problems with the games own ambitions.

The question remains unanswered that what the combination of witcher, X-Com and Crusader Kings would look like, as Forged of Blood failed to execute correctly. A project this big would be a difficult job to pull even for AAA studios with huge budgets, and it would produce better results if small, indie studios focus on less ambitious projects.
