    "Halfway is a top-down turn-based strategy RPG game.. The RNG is against me in this game and makes the game incredibly difficult. I found it difficult to enjoy this game, even though I gave it a good go. I wouldn't recommend. "

    " Battle Brothers is a turn based tactical RPG that is both free and fun. You can get it on Steam and the learning curve is not as steep as other RPG's. You can install and begin taking over territories right away. The graphics are not super high resolution and detailed but they are engaging. "

    "I wouldn't say that "Pillars of Eternity" is the best RPG game with squad mechanics on Steam, but it's a solid enough choice to be in my top 5. The story is pretty well written and it's replayable at least several times without becoming too boring, so overall I'd say it's a decent selection. "

    "I'm a fan of the classic Fallouts so this should have been right up my alley but I found Wasteland 2 to be a letdown. It honestly feels like a step back even from those classics and became to me more of exercise in frustration than anything else. Giving me lots of options doesn't change a thing when I feel like I'm always making the wrong ones while my clearly blind rangers couldn't be told to shoot the broadside of a barn without hitting each other."

    "I was looking for a turn based squad game like X-Com on Steam. Buying Final Fantasy VII was the worst decision I could have possibly made. Being a simple turn based RPG from the 90s, this couldn't be further from the game I was actually looking for."
