Massive Chalice Review

So, Massive Chalice just got released and it is totally free for June and July!

I decided to give it a go and so far, I'm suprised to say, I'm really enjoying it. The tactical element is kind of basic, but right now I'm getting used to it on Normal. The game itself plays VERY similar to Xcom, so if you're a fan, you'll love it. Every character has set skills and classes and these compliment your play style.

It also merges the idea of Game of Thrones in to it. You have 5 bannermen that you can choose, these give you your heroes for the battles that lay ahead. They also serve another purpose and that is to marry different members of the houses together to make babies, but first you need to build a keep first, this will create children and more heroes to command later in the game.

Then you have you basic map, which takes timeline inspiration from other strategy games. The timeline does what you'd expect, builds the research projects you have going, such as Keeps and new armours. It also creates battles, that your heroes level up from.

All in all, its a basic, fun game that really does give you some easy enjoyment. For an extra challenge play the game on Hard, would play the first game on normal with the tutorials on for a few rounds.

Overall 7/10
Graphics 6/10
Replayability 8/10
