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.
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.

Iron Danger is as charming as it's filled with environmental traps and time crimes. Also, you heal when you enter a sauna.
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.
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 tactical RPG that gives you full control over time itself and turns combat into a puzzle.
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 time manipulating tactics make this game an interesting strategy game, but also a somewhat tedious one.
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.
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.
Likable RPG with unique time manipulation mechanic and solid story is not perfect, but amusing for sure.

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

An interesting tactical combat experience where you can rewind time
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.
Over the course of fifteen or so hours to see the game to completion, Iron Danger offers a good challenge, even on the default normal difficulty. The ability to infinitely bend time to your will to fine-tune encounters to perfection can be really satisfying. Its biggest detriment is how clunky and unpolished it all feels. That said, Iron Danger is really fun, and completely distinct from every other tactical combat game you’ve played. And for that, it should be on your radar.
Iron Danger prides itself in its combat and time manipulation system. It does so well deserved. The game's second highlight is the wonderful world. Levels are small, but varied and just beautiful. It's a pity there aren't more interaction possibilities outside of combat and that the narrating remains rather dull. Friends of tactical gameplay (and great worlds) shall take a look at Iron Danger!

Iron Danger won’t change your world, but it’s a wholly unique game that may well appeal to dungeon crawling fans.
