Review: Expeditions: Conquistador (New Gamer Nation)

With its blend of spatially-focused strategy/RPG combat and big-picture team management, Expeditions: Conquistador is a little bit of XCOM, a little bit of Oregon Trail, with some choice-focused story elements thrown in for a twist. It hits several high notes from those prestigious titles, but falls a bit flat in other areas. I can also tell you from personal experience that it’s the sort of game in which – despite assurances to the contrary in the game’s introduction – it is totally possible to paint yourself into a corner that can only be escaped by starting the game over. Perhaps that’s a flaw, but such a do-or-die challenge can be very rewarding. (Expeditions: Conquistador, PC) 8/10
