Xcom meets Steamworld Heist


Take most of the random elements out of Xcom and replace it with the bullet ricocheting mechanics of SteamWorld Heist and slap a supernatural wild west theme over it and you'll have this game. The gameplay isn't as smooth as it could be but it doesn't completely ruin the experience and the themed mechanics it has in place work really well for the genre, allowing you to customize your character's abilities and playstyles depending on what cards you give them.

Reminds me of Fallout but with less RPG elements.


With a clear conscience, I can recommend playing this turn-based shooter that reminds me of Fallout 1 and 2, or X-com. It is worth to mention that we have RPG elements here, but it is so subtly implemented that you know that the main element here is shooting. The RPG element manifests itself in a story and has a very moderate impact on the player. Character development is simple but interesting. A great tactical game I highly recommend.

Old school rpg game in a gothic-western setting. I loved it.


So i'm sure you've heard...If you've played X-COM then this is the game for you. Well that's pretty much spot on. I really liked this game, not just because i'm into my "turn-based strategy" games, but also because of how the game carries itself over more than enough levels/scenarios. The graphics were excellent and almost had a animated feel to them. The voice overs sounded authentic and the music also fitted right in. The stories behind the scenarios weren't anything special, but for me, that was the weakest aspect. The difficulty can be adjusted, but playing my way through the game on "medium" difficulty was a challenge. Was it harder than X-COM? For some parts it was, mainly because you would have to restart a level again if you died at the very end of that level, very unforgiving!! But the game as a whole is no way near as in depth as X-COM, but that's OK, because the game is just that good. Some scenarios will take you up to an hour or two to complete fully, optional objectives are there for you to achieve, and these will benefit you later in the game or at least later that particular level. All in all it's a must play game, excellent level design, excellent authentic sfx and music, excellent weapons {which can up-graded} and an excellent balance between the levels of difficulty. I was disappointed that i had completed the game, and for me, that's a sign of a good/great game.

A fun but challenging game.


Hard West is a fun turn based game that plays a lot like XCOM which means there will be a large amount of missed attacks. The game has an overwatch mechanic which in XCOM is an ability that lets your characters automatically fire on an enemy who moves within a certain range of your character during the other players turn but for some reason in Hard West you don't really get access to this ability however the AI does have this and it does a ton of damage with a very high hit chance. There is a luck system in this game that acts like mana for your skills or abilities but it also plays a role in a characters accuracy. If a character is damaged then they'll earn more luck and a character that dodges an attack will lose some luck. The problem I had with the luck system is if a character has more luck then they'll have a higher chance of dodging an attack which means using an ability usually ended up with that character getting hit or dying. I didn't like that the story is split into a few mini campaigns which means you'll lose any weapons, armor, gold, extra characters and everything else that you may have found after completing that part of the games story. The game automatically saves at the start of a mission and at the end of a mission but you're only allowed to play the newest auto save and there is no manual saving unfortunately. There is an optional ironman mode which forces you to restart the entire part of the story that you were playing if an important character dies instead of just that mission which can be challenging. You can also enable injuries which gives your injured characters a debuff that reduces their stats for extra difficulty. Overall this game is pretty good even though it does have some flaws.



Despu?s de casi 20 horas jugadas, creo que Hard West es un juego imprescindible para los que les gusten los juegos de estrategia por turnos. Su principal referencia ser?a el X-Com, sobre todo en la parte de los combates: tienes 3 o 4 personajes, varios enemigos, dos puntos de accion por turno, porcentajes de acierto del disparo (mas legales que en su referente, aqu? no veras uno de tus vaqueros fallar un tiro de 95% mientras los enemigos te dan desde el otro lado del mapa).
