This War Of Mine: Final Cut Reviews
This War of Mine: Final Cut is an incredible, heart-wrenching, terrifyingly real view into what war is really like. While its gameplay may sometimes be clunky and slow, the game still manages to capture your attention with atmosphere and purpose as you slowly gather supplies and materials in these emerging stories that will stick with you for a very long time.
All in all, this is a beautifully crafted cautionary tale about the horrors of war and the true devastation it can rain on ordinary civilians. Like real war, every story you play will be different with different outcomes, and you’ll be led to make increasingly more desperate and erratic choices to ensure the survival of your characters.
An enduringly clever inversion of traditional survival genre tropes coupled with a palpably tragic and gut-wrenching experience, This War of Mine: Final Cut offers up 11 bit studios magnum opus in its perfect form. By packing in all of the DLC released to date in addition to the stellar Stories expansions and providing a pin-sharp 4K presentation, This War of Mine: Final Cut is an ageless, horrifying and inventive survival effort that everybody should play without delay. This is as essential as survival games get and its mediation on the desperate plight of civilians during a time of war has never been more resonant.
The impact of war is depicted in gut wrenching fashion.
This War of Mine: Final Cut is an emotional and meaningful survival game that will give you a really good idea of what people are going through in places where war is raging. This new version is the most visually detailed version yet and the DLC is worth checking out with it. It’s a game that deeply affected me emotionally back in 2014 and now in 2022 has done it all over again with what is going on in the world today. I honestly can’t recommend this one enough.
This War of Mine: Final Cut is a great provocation for each of us regarding the effects and feelings that result from extreme situations such as a state of armed conflict. Technical improvements and supplemental content add to the base material, and even with some troubles in the gameplay, it remains impactful and, perhaps, even more necessary than ever.

It’s impossible not to think about what real people in different parts of the world are going through right now when playing This War of Mine in 2022. That’s part of the point. Buying a video game perhaps isn’t the best way to support those people, but This War of Mine: Final Cut captures the true horror of war in a way that few video games will even try, let alone succeed, and for that, it’s an absolute must-play. If you’re like me and waited nearly eight years to check This War of Mine out, it’s time to fix that mistake.
