Game Informer Pays Appropriate Homage to Wasteland 2

It has been a VERY long time coming and now that it's finally here, is it worth the wait?

It has been a VERY long time coming and now that it’s finally here, is it worth the wait?

If you’re not old enough, chances are, you don’t recall the 1988 PC RPG classic, Wasteland. As such, you’re probably not all that interested in the sequel. But if you’re an old-school Fallout fan, you can’t afford to miss this very long-awaited sequel.

There are only a handful of reviews out there right now, but arguably the best one available can be found at Game Informer. Critic Daniel Tack explains why the game is catnip for fans of the strategy genre, and he spares no effort in providing the reader with all the pertinent details. For strategy productions, the reviewer has no choice but to go deep and that’s precisely what Tack does.

He also captures the inherent darkness of the game, which is essential if the reader is unfamiliar with the atmosphere. A well-balanced and well-written analysis, this Wasteland 2 review is well worth your time, and pays appropriate homage to an IP that…well, shoulda had a sequel a long time ago. 26 years is a long time but hey, that’s no reason to miss out on the fun!

Strategy buffs should love the sequel's nod to old-school games like Fallout.

Why We Like It:

— Readers receive a detailed, in-depth evaluation of the gameplay. This is critical because this genre thrives – perhaps more so than any other genre – on its core gameplay.

— Despite the aforementioned focus on gameplay, the critic doesn’t ignore the story and atmosphere. In the old days, such traits didn’t matter quite as much; these days, modern gamers definitely want to hear about a production’s presentation.

— It’s a nicely balanced and well-written review, with decent pacing and plenty of info. In other words, it’s a well-rounded analysis.

Congrats, Daniel!
