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...

The game features:
- Full 3D graphics with high quality textures, images and effects to bring the action alive.

- 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.

Este juego lo jugue en la version Android en mi Galaxy Tab 10.1 , mezcla estrategia y rol que nos llevara a los horrores de la 1ª Guerra Mundial y las pesadillas de los mitos de Chtulhu introduciendonos en una apasionante historia .

En el juego moveremos nuestras unidades por turnos , estas unidades ademas tienen un arbol de caracteristicas en los que podremos ir añadiendo puntos conforme avancen y especializandolos en aquello que creamos mas coneveniente . No es facil saber en que gastar los puntos pues las necesidades y las opciones son muchas , entre ellas el psicoanalisis , que necesitaremos para mantener la cordura de nuestros hombres en el campo de batalla cuando se enfrenten a criaturas sobrenaturales .

Para enfrentarnos a los enemigos tenemos un amplio arsenal de armas de fuego , melee e incluso opciones magicas con las que defendernos y atacar , tambien ayudas en forma de botiquines , mascaras antigas , petos , cascos y todo tipo de parafernalia tipica de la guerra de trincheras .

La ambientacion es buena y la historia trabajada , eso se agradece hoy en dia . Este es un juego que recomendaria si buscais algo que no sea un mata mata , en ocasiones la dificultad puede ser desesperante incluso , pero con perseverancia es facil acabar el juego . Yo lo recomiendo , es bastante barato y si lo pillais en una oferta por apenas nada tendreis bastantes horas de diversion .

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 :)

In Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land, it's basically the characters you control being dropped off for a happy-go-lucky jaunt of shooting eldritch horrors and cultists in the face, learning things man was never meant to know, and spamming lots of Psychoanlysis checks.

Really though, Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land is what you pay for. It's a good game, but short and sweet. It has it's replay value, but for most people, once you finish it you probably won't be touching it again, save for the extra missions. As a game, it holds up well, although it's not entirely faithful to the Mythos (we all know that the invesitgators would get their s*** slapped by these things). But, relating to the Call of Cthulhu tabletop game by Chaosium? These are all characters you may very well expect to see in any other CoC tabletop campaign.

I'd say that if you're looking for a quick game with some interesting survival elements and a fun battle system, pick this one up. But if you're looking for something a bit more in-depth and drawn out in your RPG strategy collection, this is a game that wont' be satisfying you any time soon.

This is a game I heard some positive buzz back when it came out on smartphones ages ago, but unfortunately virtually nothing was done to polish and prepare it for a PC release. I won't speak much to writing and presentation, since the controls kept me from progressing very far. They are wildly intuitive, it seems no consideration was given to updating them for PC gamers.

The many, many developers now porting their smartphone games to the Steam marketplace really need to realize what works on one device does not always work for another. Taking the time to fix up your release for the new audience will earn you a lot of mileage, and a lot less negative reviews.

A charming game with an interesting setting and concept. Has enough going for it to recomend to anyone who enjoys SRPGs and the Cthulhu mythos, just don't expect an epic 40+ hour quest with deeply detailed nuances. That said the mechanics for the system, and character growth are fun, and worth experimenting with, each character being molded how you would like to use them, along with in battle skill growth, based on weapon usage.

Though the controls are (initially) obtuse, once figured out are actually rather easy to use.

The only real downsides are that the story seems a little stilted and that the ingame 'help' menu offers little in the way of actual help. Also, the accuracy on some attacks seems really low, at times, but this never got in the way enough to cause me real frustration (as some SRPGs are wont to do)
