Silent Storm Reviews

Two very positive reviews of Nival and JoWood’s Silent Storm have surfaced on the web. The first is at ZenGamer with an overall score of 9/10:

Silent Storm is the new X-COM, the new Jagged Alliance. It is the standard against which all future turn-based tactical combat games will be measured, an instant classic that will hopefully rekindle interest in a slowly dying genre. No one should miss out on the fun of Silent Storm.

And the second is at WorthPlaying with an overall score of 8/10:

All in all you will find that Silent Storm has much to offer. If you’re willing to put in the time and really learn the controls of the game, you will be rewarded with a lot of fun. Like any turn-based strategy game, there is a learning curve that hovers somewhere in the two hour range. Once you start to feel like you have some control over what is going on, it can be quite addictive. Nival Interactive has come up with quite a fine game here that is both challenging and rewarding. I would have preferred to have seen some more historically accurate scenarios. Historically accurate WWII games are the flavor of the day so it seems forgivable that Nival has tried to do something off the beaten path with the story. With a combination of destructible environments, a great 3d engine, role-playing elements and challenging turn-based fighting, Silent Storm comes up a winner.
