SteamWorld Heist Review
Full steam ahead!
For what it was, I enjoyed SteamWorld Dig. While I’m usually not a fan of that type of game, I found myself playing Dig a lot more than I expected. I kept wishing that there was combat in it though. Never would I have imagined that the next step in that franchise would be the drastically different SteamWorld Heist.
SteamWorld Heist takes the same steampunk wild-west robots theme and adds spaceships, loot, crew with unique skills, weapons, and skillful, turn-based tactical 2D combat… all while keeping the same quirkiness. It’s a simple art style, but charming and completely capturing. As someone that really enjoyed Code Name S.T.E.A.M., I expected to like the tactical combat of SteamWorld Heist, but I found myself loving it. That said, the game isn’t perfect.
