Wintermoor Tactics Club
Top Critic Average
Wintermoor Tactics Club is perfect for newcomers to the genre, but doesn't offer much for experienced tactics players
In spite of a few flaws, this game's delightful charm totally won me over.
At the end of the semester, Wintermoor Tactics Club earns a passing grade for its accessible gameplay and charming story beats, but there's red ink all over the Switch's performance. If you don't mind frequent loading screens and stuttering, consider grabbing this version for the portability, but playing on PC might offer a more enjoyable experience.
With it's colorful and joyful style, Wintermoor Tactics Club offers an enjoyable 10 hours.

The indie strategy game Wintermoor Tactics Club is one of the better children's books I've ever played. Kids will love it, but adults may find it too simple.
As a fan of Final Fantasy Tactics, I really enjoyed the mechanics and story within Wintermoor Tactics Club. The short combat missions were great as they didn’t last too long yet they let you experiment with multiple character load-outs and various unlockable skills which you get as you progress in the story, keeping every new battle varied and exciting. The story which holds the game together was well-written and intriguing, keeping me hooked until the end as I really wanted to find out what was ‘really’ happening at the Academy. It’s a shame there’s no voice acting but the music created the perfect atmosphere and fans of tactical strategic games will really enjoy the mechanics during the battles.
I spent 14 hours with Wintermoor. It was charming and engaging, with some snappy writing and pretty decent art direction. I liked the world of Wintermoor Academy. If I had one major complaint, it would be the tedium of walking back and forth between areas of the school during fetch quests. There aren’t many in the game, thankfully, but it did tend to drag the pacing a bit for me. And while the music is solid overall, I do wish there had been more variety. As it goes though, those are pretty minor nitpicks.
Wintermoor Tactics Club could have made a profound political statement and misses, resulting in milquetoast dilution.
If you enjoy visual novels and a good laugh, Wintermoor Tactics Club is sure to be a good fit for your library.
Wintermoor Tactics Club is a good game but more for fans of visual-novel than turn-based strategy geeks. Well-written history, characteristic heroes and audiovisual setting - there are some strong points. However, if you are looking for something special in the tactical layer, it is better to let go and look for other games.
