Is the Humble Classics Return Bundle worth it?
I rarely say this, but this entire bundle is worth it. But I’m gonna point out the best games anyway.
The Shadowrun series are turn-based RPGs with great stories set in a Cyberpunk setting. There are many fan made campaigns, in the form of mods. So, you can get a lot of replayability. Tesla Effect is a detective noir game set is the future. Broken Sword 5 is part of the popular point and click adventures.
Wasteland 2 is kind of like Fallout in a turn-based setting, and party based gameplay. In fact it was made by the producer of the first Fallout game. Need we say more? Age of Wonders III is probably my pick of the lot. It is more of a turn-based RPG, than a 4X, but the truth is it mixes both genres perfectly. Xenonauts may not have shiny graphics, but it is the successor to Xcom. Oh yeah, it is not an easy game.
Torment: Tides of Numera is the successor to Planescape: Torment, and thought it isn’t exactly the classic that Planescape was, Tides does hold up as a great game in its own way. Dreamfall Chapters is a 3D adventure game, which has no combat at all. If you like games with a good story, exploration, puzzle solving, and third-person view, you will love Dreamfall.
My only advice would be for gamers who already own most of the games, and want to buy the bundle for getting 1 or 2 games. If that is you, I think you should give this bundle a pass.
