Fort Triumph provides a fun and compelling spin on the XCOM formula. Battles are both tense and strategic, with the option to manipulate the environment using a wide-array of varied abilities proving hugely enjoyable. Whilst this console conversion isn't the best, it's an experience that is still well worth your time if turn based strategy is your thing.
Fort Triumph is a solid, colourful entry into an increasingly crowded genre and one that dares to do things a little differently
Fort Triumph might not be the biggest victory for the genre, but there is plenty of fun combat to be had. While not genre defining, it's easy to get wrapped up in combat, and suddenly have a couple of hours fly by. The UI is hard to read at times, in both docked and handheld mode, but that was about my only complaint. I enjoyed Fort Triumph, but didn't fall in love.
On the PS4, Fort Triumph is exactly the same experience it was on PC, which is to say that it is an approachable, turn-based tactical RPG with a fantasy setting and a strong sense of humor that deflates some heroic stereotypes along the way. There’s plenty of content and while nothing about the original game, or the port, is wildly innovative, the destructible environments add a bit of tactical interest to the battles. The game’s humor may or may not work for you, but the mechanics and gameplay are probably a great introduction to the genre for younger players or experienced gamers looking for a more casual tactical approach, layered with a bit of satire and fun.
