Double Fine Productions offers their take on the roguelike genre, and does so in a post-apocalyptic, neo-80s way with RAD. As someone born in the 80s and loves that particular decade, this game hits all the right notes. As a game though, especially a roguelike where every death is permanent, it falls short of greatness. It’s enjoyable enough, but lacks range much like its melee-focused combat. RAD doesn’t do anything egregious with any one thing, but it doesn’t do anything ostentatious outside of its stylistic choices to standout within the genre.
