Any games similar to Underrail I could check out?
« on: October 28, 2013, 08:37:11 PM »
Besides Fallout 1, 2 and Tactics I mean. I'm looking for an isometric sci-fi RPG or MMORPG while I'm waiting for Underrail to be finished.

I guess Shadowrun Returns, sort of. It's way shallower, but it's ok.

Sword of the Stars: The Pit... it's also a sort of, and it's a roguelike(but a really good, and high production value one, and still runs even on my 6 year old netbook).

Tactical squad shooters ok? UFO: AI is decent and also completely free.

There's some more tactical squad shooters as well, but straight up sci-fi isometric RPGs are few and far between. There's a few coming up that look interesting(Stasis, Wasteland 2, Project Eternity, etc), and a few amateurish looking indie ones that I haven't tried out(like Datajack), but there's really slim pickings in this genre.

Hmm.. I always liked Eschalon book 1-2 (3 is being developed and should be out at the end of the year)..
Its a fantasy setting sadly, for sci fi junkies like me. But the gameplay is excellent! A bit of bauldurs gate/diablo flavor with survival mechanics..
This is an indie title aswell..

Sorry to revitilize and old subject, but these are my niche of favorite games

Arcanum: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arcanum:_Of_Steamworks_and_Magick_Obscura

Then just isometric rpg's without the stealth

Baldur's Gate


Icewind Dale
Temple of Elemental Evil
etc. etc.

Well, I can say that Avernum series is pretty much similiar to Underrail.
Exept there are magic, not tech.
But don't spit yet - magic in Avernum look like tech in general, so try Avernum out.
But not new Avernum, I mean old.
New is a shit.

Heh, psi is basically magic, and specialty pistols are pretty much wands.

Dustbowl is a post-apo RPG / point and click, about to be released.

http://dustbowl-adventure.com/

There is a free demo. The game seems very promising.

Check out Serpent in the Staglands (www.serpentinthestaglands.com).

Its a brand new oldschool CRPG inspired by Fallout (open world, classless character builds), Baldurs Gate (party based, real time combat with pause) and Darklands (gritty, Transylvanian inspiried setting).

While you're at it, you can sign our petition to make the game more known!

I'm suprised that nobody mentioned Jagged Alliance 2. I'm gaming on PC since 1994 and if I'd have to pick one single game as the best of all times it'd be this one. Graphics look outdated but gameplay is so outstanding I've yet to see a game that can rival it. Just make sure you play with the most recent build of the 1.13 community patch which gives the game tons of new features. I also recommend the mod Arulco Revised.

You mean, no-one except for LuckyRX7 a year ago? How did you miss that??

Then just isometric rpg's without the stealth

Baldur's Gate
Baldur's Gate definitely has stealth. So much so that you can pickpocket Drizzt for his enchanted scimitar. For a Dual-Classed Fighter/Druid with 4 stars in Long Swords, that's the best scimitar available. Even for a fantasy setting, it's incredible that anyone could pickpocket anything from Drizzt, let alone his prized weaponry he's holding in his very hands.

Personally, out of all nine posts, I found that one the most eye-catching. But that's just me.
