  • Review Score:8.4

    Fun to Play.

    I really liked the origional Spell Force series. This game kind of follows suit with the 1st game, but some of the features have been taken away. I don't like how the races are combined. I have found that some of the ... Read Full Review

    Not as good as the first one

    Meh. The first thing that flinged itself at me was the massive graphics change. I find it disappointing that the good old graphics have been replaced. Secondly: Now this game became an RTS-RPG instead of RPG-RTS. ... Read Full Review

    A sleeper hit!!!

    A mix of RPG and RTS elements is a dream come true. But to have it seamlessly blend together is the ultimate RTS/RPG experience. Phenomic have a hit on their hands. Smooth graphics, decent voice-overs, great gamepla... Read Full Review

    Overall, a very solid game, similar to Dungeon Siege with some some RTS gameplay thrown in.

    As a major fan of just about any and every RPG, whenever a new RPG comes out, I buy it, almost no questions asked. I picked up SpellForce 2 for $40 at my local video game store, and thus far I have not been disappointed.... Read Full Review

    This game is the complete package when it comes to great gameplay, graphics and character development.

    Spellforce 2 took me by surprise. And it hit me hard. I am still a little bit dizzy. In simple words - the game is great. It looks, it sound and it feels exactly like I would imagine and want it to do. From the early sta... Read Full Review

    Must admit that I am enjoying it immensely!!!

    I have had this game since Thursday and I have been playing it at least for 3 hours a day! I love the environment and the scenery and the graphics in general. Shining armour and fog of distance makes it all that much bet... Read Full Review

    A fantastic game, but if you a hardcore RPG or RTS fan, you may want to look elsewhere...

    Intro: SpellForce 2: Shadow Wars (SP2:SW) is one of the very few games in the RPS genre, or Role-playing Strategy. It blends the levelling, exp, questing, talent trees, armor and weapons of the RPG genre and mixes them... Read Full Review

    "Worth playing and worth completing"

    Some tech problems prevent this game from being the instant classic. But if you don't mind these you may have a hell of an experience! The single compain maps are well done but the side quests are sometimes boring and ... Read Full Review
