SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition is nothing short of strategic perfection, and a game that I’m glad to have seen board the Nintendo Switch so soon. Those looking for their tactical fix on the portable home console needn’t look any further than this, and it’s the best chance that you’ll have to conquer the stars with your motley steambot crew.
Tactical, turn-based combat set in outer space with a Wild West setting can be a hard sell. Thankfully, Image & Form nailed it with SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition. It still possesses engaging and strategic combat, and improves nicely on the 2015 original for Nintendo 3DS. The new character is a nice addition to the team, and his laser-based weapons and cool new abilities will have you continuously implementing him into your final line-up.
With five difficulty levels and randomly generated ships, I can honestly recommend SteamWorld Heist to anyone. The world is rich, the combat is engaging and the portability of the Switch pairs perfectly with the short missions (even if the game is beautiful on a big TV). Plug in your headphones and play this game.
