    You'll become so entrenched in the story and your resistance squad that losses will leave a mark.

    Warsaw is a tactical-RPG, a tribute to the hellish Darkest Dungeon: it's cruel, it's hard and it's also a bit unfair.

    WARSAW has potential and good ideas. Unfortunately, it is not well balanced, and the many constraints often force the player into frustrating stalemates — sometimes simply through bad luck. The history lesson is understood, but accessibility and fun just aren't present. As it stands now, only the most hardened and persistent veterans of the genre will have the chance to progress and have fun in the long run. Providing more reasonable difficulty modes or a progression curve — rather than sending players crashing into a cliff — would have accomplished a lot, and that's a shame.

    WARSAW wants to be a mashup of World War II and Darkest Dungeon but doesn't bring anything new to the table. WARSAW is a blatant Darkest Dungeon copy with no innovation or unique gameplay mechanics whatsoever. Everything that it might go as original in WARSAW exists in Darkest Dungeon in a slightly different form. Add to that the design flaws, bugs, and balancing issues and you have a subpar experience that can't be balanced by the tense atmosphere and interesting setting.

    There is, of course, nothing wrong with complexity and challenge in a game but Warsaw adds to the mix some capricious unpredicatability in its AI mechanics and design that can be frustrating, resulting in gameplay that is simply not on the winning side of the challenge/reward equation. Some streamlined systems and little more tolerance for varied playstyles and approaches would make Warsaw feel encouraging of creativity. If Warsaw’s intent was conveying the hopeless desperation that the city’s residents felt in 1944 was the goal, the title succeeds but that doesn’t necessarily make for an engaging game.

    Warsaw is a solid foundation, but the balancing issues may make it difficult for players to love.

    Warsaw looks nice, but it’s the substance that matters. The developers lifted pretty much everything from Darkest Dungeon, but failed to adapt those mechanics to suit the needs of a completely different story.

    This is a very good rogue like game, combat is difficult but also very satisfying.

    This is a very good rogue like game, combat is difficult but also very satisfying.
    WARSAW has a very unique atmosphere filled with sadness and hopelessness, it is definitely unusual experience in gaming.

    Not great but not bad at all! And for sure, not a cringeworthy attempt to sell another turn-based game. The only, only reason for not givingNot great but not bad at all! And for sure, not a cringeworthy attempt to sell another turn-based game. The only, only reason for not giving it more then 8, is... the game is kind of short and, if I understand what happened at the end, it’s kind of hard to imagine any DLC’s coming... sonner or later.
