What can I say, this is my kind of game! Awesome graphics, great gameplay with fun mechanics. And who doesn’t love a good fedora. I want more, and then some.100dirkwedger
SteamWorld Heist is another excellent game from the folks at Image & Form. While I wish that the skill trees were less linear, I honestly have nothing else to complain about.95NintendoWorldReport
While not a narrative that would be found in a larger-scale RPG, the story is engaging enough to make keeping track of all the various factions and personalities not only worthwhile, but entertaining.90Cubed3
If we had to pick a definitive steampunk space robot pirates tactical role playing strategy game, this one would have to take the cake. You will lose quite a lot of hours in SteamWorld Heist.90PLAY! Zine
Steamworld Heist is a ton of fun, and developer Image and Form are doing a great job of trying new things following the surprise success of Steamworld Dig.90DarkStation
