Fort Triumph Reviews
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.

A functional blend of fantasy-themed XCOM battles with Heroes of Might and Magic strategy, Fort Triumph replicates their concepts but without the depth.
Fort Triumph is a brilliantly crafted genre blend.
Fort Triumph is a good strategy game with more than one way to play with fun characters and unique maps.
Overall, I had a great time playing Fort Triumph and will continue to play more and more in the future. I would highly recommend it to everyone either looking for an entry into the world of turn-based tactics, to even the most battle-worn veterans looking for the new title to sink their claws into.
A comical group of RPG characters band together to find quests to earn money. But are they about to bite off more than they can chew?
A colorful squad-based strategy game with a focus on physics-based combat that's held back by a lack of hero variety.
Fort Triumph has enough content and replayability to keep you hooked for a while. If you are looking for a more lighthearted and quirky take on the XCOM formula, with some really interesting physics-based combat mechanics, then you should give Fort Triumph a try.
Fort Triumph has everything a turn-based RPG needs, plus a lot of potential. However, a few small (yet demotivating) issues keep it from achieving what it could be and more demanding players will likely find a better option even before discovering everything the game has to offer.

Despite these criticisms, there’s a lot to like about Fort Triumph. XCOM is a good thing, and Heroes of Might & Magic is a good thing. Mashing those two good things together in a way that does justice to them both is a noble effort by the developers, and the presence of skirmish mode does mean that the poorly conceived narrative can be ignored. You’ll bounce off Fort Triumph quickly enough, but it’s a good time while it lasts.
Fort Triumph expertly blends genres into a strategy experience that's infinitely fun and endlessly charming.
There is everything here to make a great game. The only thing it really needed was a few more months testing things out. Notably, the graphics need some upgrading, and combat devolves into repetition very soon. Smoothing some of these problems out would easily push this into a very high recommendation. As it stands now it acts as a novel throwback if nothing else.
Fort Triumph is a well-made Tactical RPG game that mix fantasy elements with turn-based combat of XCOM, some aspects of Heroes of Might and Magic, and parody, and the result is an enjoyable potion. If you enjoy games like XCOM, Fort Triumph will be the right choice for you to experience the gameplay charm with fantasy elements.

Let’s be honest, though many games have attempted to capture some element of the X-Com style of tactical strategy combat, very few have done a decent job of it...
Fort Triumph is a solid game that does justice to the two franchises that inspired development. While there are some quality of life issues that need to be ironed out, fans of turn based strategic combat will enjoy this new take on the genre.
Fort Triumph is a game of strategy and turn-based combat where each decision can condition the status of the group in each fight since the death of the characters is permanent and that can make the game more or less difficult to carry.
