Heroes of Annihilated Empires reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
Magic game. The Atmosphere of the absolutely real world of Aquador is created thanks to amazing music, special effects, creatures. In The game a huge number of pluses, such as atypical races (mechanics, Solov and Krialtsev in no game can not be found, probably), the complexity (yawn will not have), a lot of different spells (sometimes you have to sweat to find what you really want Find), a lot of different weapons, equipment (you can create different combinations of the character of a strong magician, a tenacious tank or flush:D). But all these pluses disappear as soon as you pass the campaign. As Far as I know, the game has not been completely finished (In Campaigns only "The Way of the Forest people", which is certainly not enough. I would like to know what happened next, whether Akvador remained alive and what happened to Lina (only a small part of the questions that could Answer the second part of the game). Having read the trilogy of Ilya Novak we learn a little about the history of the world and the Heroes BEFORE the ritual, conducted by the Druid. About Elhunt is practically nothing new. Well, the game itself is 10 out of 10, but due to the fact that everything is so broken, forced to remove one point. So, 9 out of 10 put. Did not shoot 2 or 3 points because there are usual battles, where you can choose the race and the type of Hero (Warrior, Ranger or magician), rebuild the Empire and himself in his head to invent a story, roles, etc. Thanks for the masterpiece, the developers:)

A Wonderful, albeit little-known game from GSC. Beautiful, diverse world, different creatures, 4 dissimilar races. The Combination of two genres, RTS and RPG, gives a wide range of tactics, and different types of units, from the usual archers to steam tanks and airships, as well as various types of attack and protection indicators for each force to think about a strategy to fight against each race. It Should be noted that if we chose the mode "only development" then our hero calling the builders does not disappear from the battlefield at all, and "disconnect" for half an hour. You can Also cancel the automatic call builders, and then the player is free to choose how to play it, or still call the builders and the first time to play in the usual mode of RTS, or to become a single hero and rely on combat magic, potions, useful Things as well as mercenaries whose settlements are located in various places of the map. In this case, the hero is available places to buy scrolls, potions, items, and the hero will gradually be able to replace a whole army and alone to deal with the bases of the enemy. (However, the hero will be able to create a subcontrol army in this case). Also worth to say about the campaign, which tells us about the difficult struggle of the Elves with the undead. Playing for a simple pathfinder, we will visit different parts of the game world, called Akvador, following from their land called Atlantis in search of those who can help, we are thrown to various places, ranging from dungeons filled with undead and various Creatures, to the flying island where the whole city is located. What we get at the exit: The pros of the game:-Great Design-Interesting gameplay-Beautiful picture-Nice Music-Interesting campaign-Inserts in the form of videos and comics-map Editor (albeit difficult to learn, and cleverly hidden) cons of the game:-Small Bugs-a Small number of cards for multiplayer-Sometimes boring moments in the campaign-a Slight imbalance in the races (the two in a skillful game it is unlikely to be noticeable)-in The late stages of the game, the characters are somewhat disemliuyuchsya, because the magic and objects are the same for all ( Exceptions are only weapons and basic skills)-Small number of audio tracks-it is Also worth adding that due to the fact that in the beginning it was supposed to be only the first part of the trilogy, the potential is not used for full Evaluation: 8.5 \ 10
