WARGROOVE DELUXE EDI­TION

Bangor Mail - - The Game Review -

PS4, Switch

★★★★★

WHAT’S Deluxe about this edi­tion of Wargroove, which launched in Fe­bru­ary? First, this Ad­vance Wars-in­spired fan­tasy turn­based bat­tler gets a phys­i­cal re­lease for the first time on Switch and PS4, a well-earned re­ward for a game that nicely blends cute 2D vi­su­als with chess­board strat­egy.

More im­por­tantly though, this copy of the game is pre-packed with a great editor (for mak­ing your own bat­tle sce­nar­ios or down­load­ing new ones), as well as qual­ity of life im­prove­ments that en­hance con­trols and in­ter­faces and bring ad­di­tional dif­fi­culty modes. This helps pre­vent Cam­paign mode from be­com­ing such a slog dur­ing later, grindy mis­sions.

Tac­tics re­main straight­for­ward – bat­tles rely on the old rock, pa­per, scis­sors for­mula – yet Wargroove also re­mains a won­der­fully ap­peal­ing strug­gle.

The last word: Fun and chal­leng­ing war­fare with added im­prove­ments.

Price: £19.99
