Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden is an engaging, fun and fresh turn-based strategy game that plays with the genre’s conventions in unexpected ways. It could do with some fine tuning, but the interesting world, brilliant combat and challenging stealth mechanics mean this journey through the apocalypse is one that never wears out its welcome
Mutant Year Zero does have a few rough edges, though. The game’s suitably pretty and the main character voice acting is on point, but the voices of the ghouls, all fed through the same electronic filter, do start to grate. You have the freedom to explore and revisit multiple locations, but in order to get a foothold and to give your characters a fighting chance, you’ll need to grind a little.
The various mutants met with special skills can all be utilized for specific situations and provide the option to create a well-rounded team. Tactics-wise, Mutant Year Zero knocks those mechanics out of the park. Gameplay inconsistencies and forced grinding can wear one down, however, and keep the title from reaching its full potential. Overall, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is deserving of attention and provides solid entertainment for tactics fans.
