Iron Danger Reviews
Daedalic's take on tactical combat is unique and refreshing, making for a robust gameplay that is also enriched by an interesting setting inspired by Finnish folklore.

Iron Danger as an experience relies so heavily on the time-travel combat mechanic that it doesn't really present you with much besides that. Everything else is a little bit bare bones.
Iron Danger is an interesting story of a young woman who obtains magical powers from a shard impaling her. The tactical combat and ARPG mechanics make for clever gameplay and a lack of grinding, although some fights are frustrating. The story itself is good, but the ending drags it down a lot by leaving you unsatisfied and wanting more.
If you are a lover of RPG games such as Divinity: Original Sin 2, and are a frequent abuser of the quick-save button like me, you’ll find Iron Danger quite fun and refreshing.
Iron Danger is a compelling real-time tactics game that's held together by its core feature and a few interesting characters. Sadly, the story is bland other than a few interesting characters and while the core gameplay elements result in a strong tactical game, the controls frequently frustrate and impede the fun you can have.
Iron Danger is as charming as it's filled with environmental traps and time crimes. Also, you heal when you enter a sauna.
Of the many ingredients of Iron Danger, the combat system is for sure the best designed and comes across as fresh and interesting. I can't say the same for the RPG and narrative components though: not bad, but not excellent either.

If Iron Danger was the third game from a veteran indie studio, I'd be impressed. It's Action Squad Studios' first outing. I'm blown away. While it can occasionally be rough around the edges, I can't wait to see what they do next.
Iron Danger is a tactical RPG that gives you full control over time itself and turns combat into a puzzle.
Overall, I feel like I’ve missed something with Iron Danger. On paper I should love it but I haven’t been able to get there. For me, it was a nested frustration that killed my enjoyment.
The unique time manipulating tactics make this game an interesting strategy game, but also a somewhat tedious one.
At first sight, the game looks completely unique compared to old fallout or other turn-based games.
An interesting tactical combat experience where you can rewind time
Iron Danger is missing the R of RPG, but it's an enjoyable experience with puzzle-like battles.

Likable RPG with unique time manipulation mechanic and solid story is not perfect, but amusing for sure.

Iron Danger lacks the polish or depth to appeal much beyond that interesting concept. A lot of people will have fun with Iron Danger, but I could also see it being a game that many load up and ultimately bounce off of.
Your enjoyment of Iron Danger will rely on how much you love tinkering with plans until you execute something perfectly. So, if that sounds like your jam then you'll be absolutely smitten with the strategic possibilities in Iron Danger.
While figuring out the right set of moves can be frustrating, Iron Danger is a unique RPG-style combat experience combined with a strong story and audio/visual presentation.
Fans of both action and turn based strategy games should not miss Iron Danger when it releases on Steam on March 25th.
Iron Danger's combat can be frustrating at times, but its time-manipulation mechanic, despite a clunky implementation, provides it an identity of its own.
