Very streamlined 4X game. Purists don't seem to be a fan, but as a very big fan of 4X, I think the arcade touch to the genre is very refreshing. Yes, it isn't deep at all and lacks proper guidance, but it's much more instant in its gratification.
Civ V goes Master of Magic.Wonderful work by Paradox. I'm just wishing they would have put in even more details. Also the spell system could have been more interesting (MoM did it better).
Looks nice. Tasty visuals too. Might get this some time. Also, it's probably meant to be a given, but I didn't hear any mention of online play. Anyone know if this is online? Btw, VanOrd been poisoning drinks or something? He's been filling in a lot lately.
Looks kinda like Civilization V mixed with Might and Magic, with a dash of Warcraft. Sounds tasty... I mean, good.
Where do you guys find the music you play in the background of some of these reviews.. some pretty epic stuff there, sounded like a decent listen! :)
I love the video editing :D when complaining about the AI, the reviewer is accompanied by a scene in which a warrior shouts "For glory and honor!!... ARGH!" and dies. Love those details <3
This game looks good but it sounds like it's not very complex, which takes away from the fun for me.
That is one baaaad immitation of Sean Connery. Ugh. Despite this, the game looks great and right up my TBS alley. As for being "...initially simialr to "Civilization V..." - make that this IS 'CIv V" as a first impression. Great review, but I cannot help but feel this is a Mod for "Civilaization V" , a game I am well and truly over.
The lack of proper UI and the crappiness of the AI make this game quite boring and too easy even on the hardest lvl. the expansive part is fun and the 1st war you wage may be so too, but soon after having to capture the capitals of the inferior opponents left becomes a tedious. Maybe some patches will improve this later but seams unlikely.
played the demo and i was bored.
still no Master of Magic of AOW Shadow Magic
Which is sad b/c figure after like 15+ years you will see something better.
@Renoo27 We've been trying to do video reviews for freelanced assignments whenever we can. In the past, if a review was written by someone offsite, we wouldn't create a video review for it because the author isn't here to record voice and footage. It isn't always possible even now, but we're trying to fill in those gaps more and more.
@Riaktion Gotta say I agree with you. Would also like to know.
Similarly themed to M&M? Yeah, you're not the only one to see it. But to say it's a ripoff of it is just ignorant
@bob_geldof221 Just what? That statement is wrong for so many reasons.
@yomanjdf No, this is a review by Jason Wilson. Kevin VanOrd did the voice over for the video review.
@grove12345 A new Age of Wonders would be so welcome. Especially if they kept the hand drawn graphics.. can imagine how lovely they would look now? Bastion springs to mind I must admit..
@FlamingFury Yup, and the Scottish guy narrates all the Majesty games too.
@FlamingFury Yeah it is, there are many games around Ardania.:)
