Hard West is a title playable only in single mode; is a clone of XCOM dedicated to the old west. Between missions and the other, the game gives us the opportunity to explore in fact the map of the area where there is the portion of the story, visiting places that allow the story to move forward but also to us to make decisions that are in some way to influence subsequent events. You can for example choose to take action to weaken an enemy rather than another, or even go around collecting money and then spend it to market, to buy weapons and items to use in battle. The exploration of the map allows to recruit additional allies to take along. The element of greatest distinction presented by Hard West is the concept of luck, according to which a shot fails to hit the target or not. When attacking, the success rate of stroke is compared with the number of points-luck possessed by the enemy. If the difference is positive, the bullet hits, otherwise misses. With each stroke of the opponent escaped, the character loses a shift amount of luck linked to the above comparison, conversely earning points when being hit. Instead of the usual skill tree, Hard West offers a variety of poker cards, each associated with active or passive ability to assign one of the characters, interchangeably between a mission and the other. It 'a good title, enjoyable and well done.
