Hard West reviews and comments

Dust, Cowboys and Demons ... Why not. Entertaining Western Story Ballerei. Technically somewhat Problematic (GPU-Temp is being chased up! 3D models Bugs/UI Hanger etc.) 6/10 Points ... rgr & out

Nett told Story and also nice to play. Graphically well managed and gloomy mood palpable! Makes You want even more DLC! With a Rabt urgently worth the Look-to recommend!

The Developers really made an Effort and installed a lot of small Ideas in a meaningful way. The Scenario is unused and refreshing-the Story pleases. As with X-COM, the Fights are a little repetitive over Time.

Hard West is a crude Mix of Westerns, Steampunk, Underworld Mysticism, ROLE-PLAYING, TBS and Economic Simulation. However, what would normally cause headaches and Abdominal Pain results in an astonishingly good Mix in this Case. What is particularly funny is the Fact that each Chapter requires a different Resource Management.

Before starting a new game a window pops up with the following text. Do you want to play the Tutorial? We promise it's short. And useful. They have spoken the truth. This alone would make me recommend this game, besides a nicely told story that lines up around some RPG elements and round based strategy. Give it a shot! (bad pun intended)

If you liked the Review and want to discover more great Games, take a look at my Curator Page. A Follow would be very happy For Me A very good tactics game with an Interesting Story. Unfortunately, this is told almost only via Text Boxes and by splitting it into several small Scenarios there is no great Progress about the whole Campaign. Still a good Game and I had a lot of Fun with it. The full Review is on Youtube: https://youtu.be/FN05tDJIyZ4

Hard West is something more than ordinary, turn-based Strategy in an Alien Universe! In The Wild West, we fight our Way through Mines, cities, Abandoned Places and Desert Sections as gold Miners. The Story is presented to us by an exciting Narrator who speaks of the Devil every now and then. Storytwister incoming! The Handling is quickly learned to keep the Presentation clear and simple without missing the strategic Depth. The Difficulty is customizable. Sound and Music round it all off and you're päng päng deep in the Wild West epic! If you want to see the Game in German: https://youtu.be/WDq_iEg-Dq0 Especially for Beginners of the Strategy Titles I find the Game very suitable. It's a Lot of Fun and the Tension is maintained by initial hints of later Plots for a long Time. The Game Mechanics are very well done, the Atmosphere very dense. Hence KAUFEMPFEHLING!
