More reviews have come to the party – be welcome nonetheless. Also follow the reviews, a few Cthulhu-related links you might want to check out. Here is the first review by Moon Books:
The gameplay is where CoC:TWL really shines. I’m normally not a fan of strategy/rpg games because the more hardcore games in that genre have endless amounts of unit customization and other micromanaging that’s required, and micromanagement in games always gives me a headache. However, this game seems to strip out a lot of the unnecessary baggage of other strategy games to make a more stramlined experience that’s easier for more casual gamers to get into. …
it’s an easy enough game for more casual gamers, or people unfamiliar with strategy/rpg games to get into. Hardcore strategy gamers might find the game a little more simplistic than what they’re used to, but it shouldn’t detract from their enjoyment of the game. And if you’re a fan of the Cthulhu mythos and/or the Call of Cthulhu tabletop game, you should definitely go buy this game right away.
Overall Verdict: 9/10
Plus another view over on iGadget-news.de:
