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.

Pretty decent for its price of $4.99, and I like how it actually isn't some ♥♥♥♥ty wannabe 80 Dragon Quest type-game with Cthulhu slapped on it like "Cthulhu Saves the World" or a good concepts-bad execution type of game like "Eldritch", but rather a tactics role-playing game similar to XCOM: Enemy Unknown (funny considering this was originally released on mobile devices serveral months before EU). Despite this, the game still doesn't satisfy my desire for a very good Cthulhu game, as the plot so far has been very meh, and I sure as well wish this game was not a direct mobile-to-PC port. But once again, it is cheap, so if you are in for it, it is well worth its price.

Longevity: It's unfortunately quite short :( but there is a bit o replayability, cause you want play again a mission to have better result (or try other weapons and characters)
Fun: It's really enjoyable with nice quotation from lovecraft's work
Gameplay: A Tactical game in some ways similar to X-Com, but not so challenging, complex and difficult (but it's not easy at all)
Story: Very Linear but solid and in pure Lovecraftian style.
Sounds and Ambient Music: Not excellent but well done and very immersive.

It's a good game :)

Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land is a great turn based combat game with a mixture of H.P.Lovecraft cthulhu-mythology and WWI combat. The scenarios and the overall feel to the game is awesome and it really is a enjoyable game for a Lovecraft fan like myself. The chemical warfare and the pigeon are really nice features. It's like some kind of another dimension of ww1 with cults, cthulhus and evil. The extra missions are also really awesome. Highly recommended!!!! And the game is also really cheap and it offers a lot of great things and entertainment.

This is a true lovecraftian game. Before cheking other reviews and beliving this is a worthless buggy crap, do not forget that you give only £3 for a good tactical game with WWI era lovecraft game that comes from a very honest and small developer group. I finished iPad version some time ago and now I wanted to play again and bought the game on steam. There are some bugs I experienced but nothing I cannot get used to. And the story... As much as it is linear, you will enjoy it for sure if you like Chaosium campaings. After I finished the game, I used the story in a tabletop CoC game with success. All game atmosphere is faithful to the dark, hopeless and wierd lovecraft stories.

Endlich wieder gegen Cthulhu ins Feld ziehen :)

Nettes kleines Indiegame, die Spielmechanik erinnert ein bißchen an das Ur-XCOM - rundenbasierende Taktik. Die Spielmechanik basiert auf den Cthulhu RPG von Chaosium Inc. also BRS. Besonders interessant bei Cthulhu RPG's sind immer die Sanity-Regeln, konfrotiert mit dem kosmischen Grauen treibt es die Charaktere in den Wahnsinn :)

Das Spiel ist solide (konnte jedenfalls keine Bugs feststellen die so oft erwähnt wurden). Setting ist der erste Weltkrieg, also eher ein unverbrauchtes Setting. Grafisch darf man natürlich nicht zuviel erwarten bei dem Preis, aber die Wesen sind recht nett gestaltet.

Die Lernkurve ist sehr angenehm, nur selten wird es stressig.

Fazit : Zu empfehlen für Fans von Cthulhu und rundenbasiernden Taktikspielen, für 5 Euro kann man nichts falsch machen.
