    Think turn-based war game classics like Panzer General, but with elves, orcs, mages, and dragons and you'll understand.

    Rated on October 23, 2009 by drichard2830

    I have a long laundry list of turn-based strategy games on my "finished" list, and an even longer list of them on my "need to finish" list. The problem I have is my love for the deep strategy and com...

    Timed missions are no fun at all.

    Rated on October 29, 2009 by Algolagnia

    This game is timed, every mission must be finished within a set number of turns. There is no chance to explore the maps, or level up units by fighting enemies scattered around it. The focus is on b...

    An under appreciated strategy gem. Ignore the haters.

    Rated on December 31, 2012 by Gooseman321

    First of all the most common complaint about this game is that it's too hard. And it is hard, casual gamers need not apply. Elven Legacy and it's predecessor Fantasy Wars are inspired by Fantasy G...

    Timed missions, poor translation, just... /sigh

    Rated on January 19, 2010 by raef90

    I cracked into this game expecting a lot more than I got, I was expecting somewhere between old school Shining Force and Warsong from the old genesis. What I got in both storyline and game depth fell ...

    A wonderful example of a turned-based hex strategy game, in a fantasy setting.

    Rated on March 23, 2010 by AvatarBlue

    For all intents Elven Legacy is a simple game. Simple but a fantastic example of how do the easy thing right and develop a cracking game. Without doubt this wonderful game has been crafted to perf...

    Elven Legacy: A solid, legitimately challenging SRPG<br />

    Rated on May 04, 2010 by mjemirzian

    Elven Legacy is a solid, strategic, challenging hex based SRPG that doesn't stray too far from the fundamentals of the genre. It's developed by 1c company, the largest Russian developer/publisher, an...

    pointless difficulty and unbalanced maps ruin the fun

    Rated on August 10, 2010 by kocur

    Can be fun, but far too limited in unit types, map size, and about everything; plus it is far too hard!

    Rated on April 13, 2009 by ciskaos

    All right, to make it simple this game has you play heroes of might and magic BUT battles only. No recruitment during mission, no castle building. Just a deck where you can move your units around. St...

    Anyone who enjoyed tabletop strategy games will like this.

    Rated on April 14, 2009 by a5tro

    Awesome game for ex-tabletop gamers, turn based gaming with a hotseat multiplayer mode. Good campaign with voice acting and pretty damn difficult requiring you to really think about tackling each tur...

    Perfect for the kind of game it is

    Rated on April 26, 2009 by Gwarpup
