  • All things considered, for the price Hard West is a surprisingly competent tactical turn-based shooter than gets more right than it gets wrong. It somehow manages to channel many elements of the X-Com formula for combat properly while also setting itself apart with new ideas of its own. While I wish its overall story were more cohesive and would allow for greater carried consequences for choices you make along the way, the degree to which you feel like your choices can matter is still appreciated. If you’ve been frustrated with the somewhat lacking quality of the other indie titles on Switch in this genre to date, rest assured that Hard West is currently the best of the bunch by a fair margin.
