Warhammer Quest Review
People love to complain about how often LEGO or Call of Duty games release every year, but sometimes, those franchises are unmatched when compared to Warhammer. The series has gone through a variety of publishers and developers, each with their unique spins, although there are plenty of cases where it simply didn’t pan out. The latest game to grasp the potential of the series is Warhammer Quest, developed by puzzle producers Chilled Mouse. Taking on board game like characteristics, it’s ambitious as it needs to be faithful in more ways than one. So does it work?
Warhammer Quest gives you a lot to start off with, but that isn’t to say that the game doesn’t ease you in. One instance is how decisions in and out of the main gameplay, are meant to have a true effect, so you simply can’t dodge what you find challenging. Challenge is various in Warhammer Quest, and this continues all the way into following aspects (story + design)
Story & Design:
Warhammer Quest contains sidequests along with main story missions, but both are treated with care and responsibility, so players don’t find themselves bored at one or another. While this does have to do with the gameplay loop being so good, there are a couple caveats in structure that make all the difference. One is procedural generation, which finds its way into nearly every nook and cranny.
Presentation/ Visuals & Audio:
Finishing off the collection of greatness is Warhammer Quest’s presentation which includes a finely-tuned soundtrack, as well as adaptability to every player in options menus. Considering the game is $20, this is an efficient way to squeeze replay value, without feeling cheaply added on.
Warhammer Quest hasn’t gotten the publicity of games before it, but it could soon grow into one of the most underrated games in the franchise. It not only bases itself off of something and does that well, but also finds ways to amaze you along the way. At the end of the day, it’s hard not to compliment that.
Warhammer Quest gets a 8/10 (Very Good)
