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.

SteamWorld Heist was an excellent game when it launched in 2015, and it’s still excellent today on the Switch. Offering a familiar world and style with a new way to play amid the robots, it’s a strategy game that belongs on every Switch.

SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition is a fantastic port of a fantastic game, and it fits perfectly on the Switch. Deep, engaging gameplay and stylish presentation combine to make this one of the standout indie releases of the year; this is a great example of a well put-together game. If you are at all a fan of strategy games, or are just looking for a fun diversion to occupy your time over the next couple weeks, pick up this game. It puts a neat twist on standard turn-based strategy gameplay, and stands as another fantastic entry in the SteamWorld series.

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.

SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition brings together everything that made the original release such a breath of fresh air in a crowded turn-based strategy field, and adds in all the post-release content to well and truly make this live up to its name. With perfect touch-screen controls throughout in handheld mode, added to the already excellent controller support from other iterations, this is easily one of the most accessible games in the genre, and definitely one of the most enjoyable on Nintendo Switch, full stop.

Seas o no aficionado a la estrategia por turnos, ya por su emocionante acción, fantástica puesta en escena o el singular encanto de sus protagonistas, SteamWorld Heist es uno de esos videojuegos que no deberías dejar escapar. Image & Form ha sabido crear un juego accesible a todo el mundo pero a la vez también complejo, cargado de posibilidades tácticas, para que durante las horas de acción que ofrece nunca te aburras. ¡Y lo consigue!

Meilleur à chaque épisode sans renoncer à l'expérimentation de genres très différents, la jeune saga SteamWorld accueille avec ce chapitre Heist un très bon et beau jeu de stratégie au tour par tour, aussi accessible que solide et généreux. Limpide, prenant et taillé pour être rejoué plusieurs fois avec des niveaux de difficulté qui changent vraiment la donne, le dernier bébé d'Image & Form est pratiquement inattaquable tant il a été bien pensé du début à la fin.
