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
If this isn’t a lesson in not judging a duck by its beak, then I don’t know what is. Sure, there are times when I get a bad impression from a game and it continues to get worse, but I am so happy to be proven wrong with Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. The gaming market is oversaturated with gritty tales that do nothing for world-building or writing, simply existing so they can pontificate philosophical quandaries without ever actually saying anything useful.
When you consider that Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden came out of nowhere, the insanely polished tactics gameplay and charming characters are absolutely remarkable. If you’re looking for a darkly charming way to burn hours over the holidays, look no further than this apocalyptic hellscape. Who knew that the end of civilization as we know it could be so damn entertaining?
