Age of Wonders reviews and comments

Age of Wonders may be an old Game, but it's a Classic. If you're interested in turn-based Strategy games, you've come to the right place. You have a lot of Content that never really gets boring. There are up to 12 Nations, all even quite balanced, plus 6 different Magic schools with similar, both completely different Spells, and in addition there are Heroes you can "skilli" according to your Wishes and covet. However, I must also confess Negatives. The AI (highest Difficulty) can be defeated even in Undercount and Artifacts make the Heroes mostly Overpowert. But nevertheless for the Age of this Game you can have these 2 negative Traits, because even that makes this Game worth playing.

Great Round Tactics game ("ok, after the round is really closing"), which you can still play super today, but has small weakening in balance. + very well aged + super gameplay + well aged ...-slight weaken in balancing-... But still slight Signs Of Aging Who like Strategy games doesn't have it so easy at the Moment. So If you look for new Games in the strategy sector, you probably will inevitably come to look at older Games. And if you look at the Age of Wonders series, you should see it surrounded by a Kind of Luminous Shimmer while Angelic choruses are lovely in the Background. Because AoW is an absolute Top Game (and, By the way, the whole AoW series) in the Field of Lap tactics. It's almost hard to really say exactly what makes the Game so great. If you like Lap tactics, you know what I'm talking about when I say it just gives you this feeling of just wanting to play one More round. Sinking Into strategic Planning and Execution. To be Demanded and to feel good When you have achieved something (for Example, has finally conquered the doomed enemy City from which one of the Opponents has been annoying forever). All of This keeps AoW ready at a really high Level. The Gameplay is typical lap strategy: You expand your City and produce Units and then send them off together with your Hero to extract new Raw Materials and take on more Cities. What I find particularly great is the huge Selection of Peoples that is available-a total of 12 about People, Dwarves, Undead etc., Everything is there. The Game has also aged really well, even today you can still play the Game well. The graphic Style, which can still be seen today, also contributes to this. The slight Signs of Aging that you notice from the Game (Eg is a bit bulky) don't Matter. Little Criticism: Flying Units are a little too strong. Maybe a little Anticipation: AoW 1 is already good, but AoW 2 (and especially the Addon) really do! So If you're looking For the Prelude to a great Strategy series that can captivate you a total of more than 100 Hours, you should buy the franchise pack right away-it's only going to get better!
