Wintermoor Tactics Club is a safe, comfortable, and perfectly enjoyable tactics game. It's not ambitious or particularly challenging; it's a game that is pleasant to play but will probably be overlooked in favor of bigger titles. I absolutely recommend giving it a shot if you enjoy tactics games or want to try out the genre. Sometimes it's fine to just be a solid title without breaking the mold.

WintermoorTcatics Club is an indie game as all indie games should be: it is not flashy, overcomplicated, or very long, but manages to be fun and exciting without the AAA budget. It is a single-player experience that any RPG fan should experience.

Wintermoor Tactics Club brings a captivating, well-thought-out and fun story that helps you load up its simple combat system and poorly designed controls. Its ambientation and ideas should bring newcomers to the genre, even if it leaves veterans wanting more.

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.

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.

This game is awesome. The ending had me laughing and then in tears. Other than the reference noted above that I really wish they hadn’t made, this was easily one of the best games it has been my pleasure to play on the Switch to date. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and am definitely going to be using the many autosaves from my first play through to go back and tackle some of the battles again.

Overall Wintermoor Tactics Club is an alright game. The story is held up by solid dialogue, an interesting premise, and a cast of characters that are endearing enough to cover up some of the game’s flaws. Unfortunately, those flaws were ultimately too much for me to completely ignore and I left Wintermoor feeling disappointed. This is an incredibly accessible title for gamers who don’t have much experience with Tactical RPGs, however, if you’ve ever seen the box art for a TRPG, then you probably have enough experience to waltz through Wintermoor without breaking a sweat.
