    Updates improved the game’s sophistication, but also increased its requirements for computing resources.

    FOREWORD:This review is actually not about the MAC version of the game. Rather, it is a work-around for GameSpot’s inability (or unwillingness) to host two different user reviews from the same user for the same gam... Read Full Review

    The third entry in the series has incredibly sophisticated gameplay, if one can overlook its few dubious designs.

    INTRO:The earlier games in the Age of Wonders series impressed followers of the strategy genre by having wonderfully complex turn-based gameplay. However, they had problems, chief of which are their ugly presentation, pr... Read Full Review

    Brilliant So Far

    This has been a great experience so far. The story pulls you in immediately and creates a lavish world to get lost in. When a publisher releases a game like this, they need to be praised. First of all, it works, which is... Read Full Review
