The highly anticipated Netflix series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, comes to life as a thrilling tactical strategy game! In The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance - Tactics, fans can experience the fantasy world of Thra by playing through – and going beyond – the events of the series. Players will even encounter never-seen-before playable characters, stories, and environments. Over the course of 80 unique turn-based campaign battles taking place across the world of Thra, players will recruit new allies and customise their forces by assigning them jobs and outfitting them with new equipment. FEATURES - Continue the Story in an Expanded World of Thra - Delve deeper into the legend of The Dark Crystal, learning more about the Gelfling clans and their histories across more than 5 diverse, modular territories. Choose from over 15 character jobs and play through reimagined and brand-new battles against the malicious Skeksis, and help lead the proud Gelfling to victory. - Gelfling Tactics - Devise unique ways for the outmatched Gelfling to fulfill their prophecy in multi-layered, turn-based tactical combat. Units can be customised for specific fights with gear, upgradable abilities, and a job system. Use guile, planning, and cunning to overcome superior foes! - Highly Replayable - Replay finished battles to earn full marks, or replay the entire game! Once completed players can challenge a New Game+ mode, keeping all progress from their first playthrough to re-experience more difficult versions of the battles. - Rich, Dynamic Environments - The world of Thra is a living, unpredictable environment as dangerous as it is beautiful. Dynamic events on the battlefield, which can create opportunities or put the Gelflings at a disadvantage, can necessitate rapid changes in strategy.

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics can be a passable, if bland, strategy RPG with great inspirations, but lacks the polish or depth to make a strong impression of its own.

This Netflix tie-in is an awkward adaptation, but a surprisingly smart strategy game.

A competent enough clone of Final Fantasy Tactics but unlike the TV show it lacks any real sense of imagination or invention.

Too much grinding and a limited array of tactical options hold the game back
