While the RPG genre considers to more away from the turn-based style of gameplay, Wasteland 2 wisely decides to try something different. Strategy is key within the game’s grid-based gameplay, which is very well integrated into the existing 3D landscapes. The leveling up system is vast, but at the same time can get a little confusing and overwhelming for players. Wasteland 2: Directors Cut brings the series to consoles for the first time with the definitive version that proves classic style gameplay still has some life in this rapidly evolving genre.
Wasteland 2: Director's Cut presents much the same experience that impressed us last year, but here it's given a facelift that affects everything from its graphics to hours of new voiceover files. While echoes of the original release pacing problems remain, the Director's Cut does much to add variety to the experience with new features such as perks, quirks, and precision aiming.
It's not just the main story, the dialogue, and the combat encounters you have to really pay attention to either, as this is a game that requires your full attention at all times, so beware if you're planning on starting the game up during a hectic time. That being said though, if you do have the time to spare and the motivation to stand by this gem either for the first time ever or as a returning player from another console, it's a great addition to the Nintendo Switch's game vault.
