Iron Danger Reviews
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.
Iron Danger is missing the R of RPG, but it's an enjoyable experience with puzzle-like battles.

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.
At first sight, the game looks completely unique compared to old fallout or other turn-based games.
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.
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.
The lovingly designed world of Iron Danger projects partly really breathtaking panoramas on my screen. A harbour quay bathed in twilight enchants me as much as the duel between a several meter high fighting machine and my, in comparison, tiny heroes. Even if this colossus can crush me with a kick, I still manage to keep the upper hand due to the well implemented time manipulation. It's a great feeling when you jump out of the line of fire with split-second precision or parry a deadly blow. I have never regretted immersing myself in Finnish folklore for about 12-15 hours, and on top of that I was offered a sophisticated game mechanics. More of it with pleasure!

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

“Iron Danger feels like a breath of fresh air for CRPGs. While not a perfect game, its unique, time-based combat system is a pure joy to play with and worth the price of admission alone.”
Fans of both action and turn based strategy games should not miss Iron Danger when it releases on Steam on March 25th.
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.
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 is a really interesting game. The ability to shift time and think tactically in battle is really well worked out. Sometimes the game control is a bit worse, but it's okay. The main problem of the game is story processing and lengthy and boring dialogues. They are rather annoying. All in all, but this is a well-worked game.

Iron Danger is as charming as it's filled with environmental traps and time crimes. Also, you heal when you enter a sauna.
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.
The unique selling point for Iron Danger is the time manipulation mechanic, which works admirably in combat situations. Made a mistake? Just rewind time! It is just plain fun to redo your tactical approaches until everything works perfectly. A must play for anybody, who wants to try something new in this kind of genre.

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.
Iron Danger is a tactical RPG that gives you full control over time itself and turns combat into a puzzle.
The unique time manipulating tactics make this game an interesting strategy game, but also a somewhat tedious one.
