Ancient Frontier reviews and comments

I have no Idea how this Game is supposed to be playable. The worst Tutorial in a Game I have experienced in the last 10 Years, in addition, the Game surface is so confusing that it doesn't seem possible to Play at all. It feels like a Click Where you hope to randomly kick off any action that is possibly a proper one... I go back to "Kronos," which is considerably clearer, simpler, more intuitive and more accessible than this Thing here ...

Product received for free Durfte to play a Trial And find the Game really cool for Fans of Lap Strategy. I would like to see a German Translation, as the Story doesn't come across in depth like this. In short, a few Facts In a Nutshell: + XP Basined Fleet Management + Many Weapons, Extras, Special Features of Ships + Battlefield Very Clear-Story implemented Only by a lot of reading-Musste often at the End for "the last" Opponent annoyingly seek More Info in Future on https://www.gamer83.de/

It is not easy to evaluate this game, because I found it good while knowing that my criteria are very subjective and that it is not objectively the best game in the Galaxy. There is a kind of atmosphere Z series-80 years that made me sympathetic and after more than 10 hours of play, I can also say that it has good surprises, and that I have not yet finished. I think it deserves to be focused on. Edit after 20h of game: in its big flaws, I must cite the time far too long that one waits when the AI plays and that it begins to have many enemies. It is a defect that does not appear immediately, and that is boring and annoying. For those who would like to see before testing: https://youtu.be/dus1Ki5SU8M in more detail, there are two campaigns to do, with quests that lead you to the fights. We fight with spaceships in what resembles a board game with hexagons and animated pawns, turn by turn. Patches are out to fix bugs, developers seem to want it to be clean. We buy his ships, we fix them, we can equip them with objects, there is a little scientific research to do, some resources to collect. There are several types of vessels, with specific skills and characteristics (shields, weapons, Dodge, initiative, movement, critical strike, movement points and action points...). The AI is probably not the best performer ever, but when she sees a weak spot, she often uses it. There are some mechanics that we feel inspired by X-com, like activating pods or full cutlery and half-cutlery, but it has nothing to do with X-com anyway. The campaign is complemented by dialogues between the Barbies and the Ken of space. Everything is in English, but hey, the dialogues between Ken and Barbie are not necessarily very philosophical, a minimum level of English should allow you to understand.
