What more can I say? I loved SteamWorld Heist and I think everyone should play it. Even if you don't normally like tactics games, Heist might be able to change your mind. It might not make a lot of Game of the Year lists, but I can assure you that it is one of 2015's best.
Taken in parts, Steamworld Heist is an atmospheric journey through the rough edges. Despite the worst of what's out there, it always feels warm. Fans of Firefly will find the tone of it all very familiar, and rightfully so, as the entire sensation of being a plucky crew out in the void is oddly warming.
SteamWorld Heist is an absorbing tactical experience with well-crafted mechanics and systems that in spite of its story and repetitive missions, is worth recommending. As a package, it has a sense of quality in its content that'll keep you engaged well after completing it. Heist is an accessible strategy game with nuanced mechanics and systems that make its ever-shifting challenges a joy to play.
