"Set in a world war one setting, you're bent on smashing lovecraftian lore demons rather the kaiser's troops. Worth a play though, turn based. Neat idea."

The fate of humanity is in your hands...

Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land is a turn-based strategy/role-playing game based on the award winning Call of Cthulhu RPG. Developed in conjunction with Chaosium and based their multi-award winning Call of Cthulhu RPG. Set in the midst of World War One, the game pits your team of investigators and soldiers against an ancient enemy, one older than humanity itself... Can your team of investigators keep their grip on sanity long enough to stop these diabolical plans?

The game features:
- Full 3D graphics with high quality textures, images and effects to bring the action alive.
- Select from a range of authentic period weapons, equipment, armour, skills and more.
- Build your team up to match your gaming style; will you shred your foes with massed rifle fire or blast them with powerful spells gleaned from forbidden tomes? It's your choice!

Call of Cthulhu was originally the title of a novella by cult American horror writer H.P. Lovecraft (1890–1937) which has, since it was published in 1928, captured the imagination of generation after generation of fans. Returning to the horror from Lovecraft's original 'Reanimator' set during the dark days of WW1, Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land draws the player into a nightmare world where the terror of mustard gas and trench warfare are but a foretaste of what is to follow.

Clearly a mobile port, but not a bad one. I LOVE the setting. I hope they make a Call of Cthulhu - The Wasted Land 2 properly for pc! It's also bloody hard!

NON ! Faut pas nous prendre pour des abutis, il y a des limites !

Ca vous dit un jeu paru en 2011 qui comporte encore en 2014 575000 fautes d'orthographe, de syntaxe et de grammaire dans sa traduction française, au point de rendre certains textes incompréhensibles et le tutorial infaisable ?

J'ai du faire le tutorial en Anglais, car en français c'était tellement portnawak que je bloquais...

Première mission : je me retrouve dans des tranchées. Certains ennemis sont dans des tranchées en face, d'autres bien en vue sur les terre-pleins.

Aucun de mes soldats ne peut tirer sur les ennemis, même ceux en surplomb. Donc, je bouge un soldat : il se prend 2 tirs "overwatch" dans les côtes. Un deuxième : même topo. Un troisième : pareil.

Donc : je me trouve face à des soldats inattaquables qui bénéficient d'autant d'overwatch qu'ils veulent. Je suppose que l'ordinateur calcule simplement : nombre de points d'action - tir overwatch, et s'il reste encore des points d'action, l'ennemi peut tirer à nouveau.

Qui a déjà vu ça dans un jeu "small team tactics" ?

Donc : retour au Menu, Quiitter

L'Innommable aurait-il 5 minutes de disponibles pour aller reformater le cerveau des développeurs de cette infâmie ?

To sum up in English : Call of Chtulu : the Wasted Money

DO NOT BUY THIS! The controls are abysmal at best. Loved the original paper based RPG, so I felt compelled to try this little strategy game which looks like a turn based X-com style game. After reading how it is supposed to function in the in game guide, I still cannot get my soldiers to do more than walk around. They will not target or shoot enemies. When you attempt to select an enemy target, it does select the enemy; however, it is as if it simply jumps to an information screen about that enemy while forgetting the original player's unit who was supposed to be 'targeting' the enemy unit. Thus no attack options pop up. Reading some of the producer's website, it sounds as if this might have been developed as a touchscreen tablet ap game, where it may work well for all I know. I'm not a touchscreen tablet user. I have a PC. I opted out of the 'new' Windows experience, not wanting a glorified tablet operating system on my PC, and I do not have a touch screen on my PC. The game currently feels unplayable. I may tinker with it enough to get it to 'unwieldy,' or I may just save the data space on my HDD, as I don't feel much need to trouble shoot games that are supposedly post production.



[After more effort to play and to respond to some comments]:
Oh I've done both. There is some sort of indeterminate lag on input in this game that makes no sense at all. The UI in this game is TERRIBLE. Appearance is fine, but over half the time it doesn't detect the presence of the cursor over a button, or, alternatively, it simply doesn't register most mouse clicks. Since there is no UI feedback to let you know you _are_ hovering over the hotspot for a button, it's anyones guess as to which is the case. I have finally got to see a targeting box, or I'd have deleted long ago. A diehard Cthulu or Lovecraft fan might tolerate this game, and I don't feel cheated at the price I payed for it since I am a Lovecraftian, but most 70's Atari games had better response/detection of user input than this game does, AND IT'S NOT EVEN REAL TIME, it's a turn based strategy game. Clicking a random number of times from 2 to 20 to get the game to acknowledge input, from character upgrade screens, dialogue screens, and combat turns doesn't make for smooth game play. Feels like the developers were pushed to roll the product out before it was fully play tested, like most EA products are done. Don't really expect that in indie type games.

Chaosium should be ASHAMED to have their name splash in the intro to this dreck. The writing is infantile, the controls are almost unusable because they didn't even have the courtesy to polish it for the PC release. It's like they've never designed a game for a mouse before. Baffling.

The statistics, turn-based combat-style and "pen & paper" elements are buzzwords used as a ruse to lure you into purchasing something incredibly shallow.

Halfway through the first level they want you to hold a trench for 15 turns while enemies attack. All you have to do is continously end turn and overwatch will wipe everything. And that's a better alternative to fighting through the multiple clicks to get a single shot off (which ends up being a "miss" anyway.

TL:DR Some crap that would have been slightly better if outsourced to wherever.

Sadly one of those games where the PC optimisation is lacking if not totally absent. Commands work sporadically, focus changes without reason and the keyboard commands are not at all intuitive. It may have been a great tablet game but it is not living up to it on PC.
