Chainsaw Warrior is based on an older physical heavily RNG based card game. When you begin the game you select your difficulty, difficulty will effect how many dice you roll for stats that will influence your health, resistance to poison and radiation, your speed, and how good you are with melee and ranged weapons. You also roll to determine how much you can spend on starting weapons, armor, and equipment. After determining how much you can spend you will either choose the equipment you want or the ones that you can buy will be determined randomly on the hard difficult setting. You don't get much in the way of choices after your equipment is selected, cards are selected and you will either be able to use your equipment to help you in certain areas or you will just do what the card says, which is usually rolling to see if you avoid a trap or fighting an enemy. Battles are simple you either choose if you want to do a melee or ranged attack, if you make a ranged attack you have to roll to see if you are fast enough to shoot before you are hit, your chance to hit with weapons is based on how skilled you are, what bonus your weapon offers, and if there are any other bonuses or penalties (such as not being able to see well in the dark or having an item to increase your melee skill). You go through cards until you finish the first deck, once you reach the second your goal is to draw the Darkness and to make a very difficult show with a ranged weapon you begin the game with that only has three shots, if you run out of ammo or lose the weapon you have no way to win and the game ends. Chainsaw Warrior is very difficult if you aren't playing on easy. A good buy for fans who want to play a digital version of the old game but it doesn't have that much to offer. Chainsaw Warrior: Lords of the Night is an improvement on the first game in many ways. The art of the game has improved and enemies are now destroyed with a variety of different weapon effects. The game begins the same way the first did, select a difficulty and roll for stats which influence your resistance to radiation and poison, your health, speed, weapon skills, and points to spend on starting equipment. This time the game will roll all the dice for you and show you the finished numbers making it faster, which is good because people are likely to lose the game most of the time and will want to start a new game quickly. Like the first game, you also roll for a skill such as being able to move faster, having knowledge of certain areas, and the stealth ability makes a return that can help you avoid combat if you are lucky. Unlike the first game, new equipment can be unlocked over time for you to spend your budget points on, you also have an inventory where you can only keep a certain number of each type of weapon or item. Weapons have more abilities such as being better against living opponents, having the ability to pierce enemy armor which may have otherwise stopped your attack, and machine guns and flamethrowers have the ability to hit every enemy when you are attack by multiple opponents. An added ability to move between melee and ranged combat gives you more options than before when you are in battle. You can find item drops that allow you to gain new equipment, ammo to reload weapons, or you can replace items you no longer need, There are also temples with difficult opponents inside, if you choose to risk fighting them you can gain useful passive bonuses or healing. Your goal for this game is once again to defeat the Darkness but this time you will play through three decks of cards instead of two. Lords of the Night is still very RNG based and there seems to be way to high of a chance to die of infection from the zombies this time but it is a more enjoyable game overall.
