No... Just no.

In a universe where Baldur's gate, Icewind Dale, and Neverwinter Nights doesn't exist. Confrontation would still be a clunky uninteresting game, of repetitive combat, linear gameplay, and lacking upgrades.

But in a universe where Those three games do exist, as well as many more, there's nothing to recommend with Confrontation. The story is weak, the enemies are repetitive, the characters have no real upgrade system to speak of, there's no inventory outside a minor weapon/armor upgrade system that feels cheap, and the gameplay is monotonous.

There's no "Exploration" in this game, you play through linear levels with a very similar party. The combat is mostly fast paced which requires either a lot of micromanaging before the battle starts or a lot of pause and resume.

The problem with this is that all the combats are the same, in the classic Fallouts (or even the modern ones) there are snap decisions that require a pause system because it's a new enemy, or you need to utilize a large inventory. In this game, a simple autocast system would have made the combat dull. Well duller than it already is.

There are a few interesting ideas in the game regarding death, but overall, I played two of the maps, and neither were that enjoyable. I mean how many of the same soldiers in the same formation do you have to kill to show you "understand" how to kill them. In between battles, you heal up so it's not even like the game can wear you down with multiple waves of enemies.

If you're considering this, buy Baldur's gate, Icewind Dale, Disgaea, Wastelands 2, or something along those lines. This game, well maybe if you've played all of those and simply MUST have yet another game, and can ignore a poor story, and uninteresting characters, then maybe buy this one, but honestly, you should have more than enough hours in any one of those other games.
