Default Expeditions: Conquistador - Review @ PopMatters

February 19th, 2013, 15:29
PopMatters brings us a review of Expeditions: Conquistador, rating it with an 8.
The complicated and delicate premise of the game deserves its own treatment, but for what itís worth, the press preview that this review is based on approaches the content in an intelligent and interesting way. Expeditions Conquistador doesnít romanticize its source material, but it also seems to deliberately make light of it at times. Thereís sometimes a low tolerance for ambiguity when it comes to how art approaches social justice, but the caveat is that Imperialism is not a respectful process. The developers appear to know that. It should be said that, according to the Kickstarter page, the finished game will include a campaign from the perspective of an Aztec war band. There was also a stretch goal that would have included a campaign set in the Inca empire that was not reached, though hopefully plans for it have not been totally abandoned. The game boldly walks a thin line, but until a finished product can be evaluated, it canít be said whether it succeeds or not with regards to its racial dynamics.
Thanks Darklord.
