Fantasy Wars Review
It may be old-school, but Fantasy Wars isn't behind the times when it comes to providing satisfying, albeit spectacularly tough, turn-based strategy gameplay.
Fantasy Wars is everything a fan of turn-fantasy strategy games wants. That is, if you´re like me and want to concentrate on interesting battles without production and camp management. The comparisons to Fantasy G... Read Full Review21 of 22 users found the following review helpful
This game is some sort of a Heroes clone so it takes most elements from the "success recipe" of the last two games of the series, but this time only 3 races battle for power: humans, orcs and elves. It's turn based and d... Read Full Review7 of 33 users found the following review helpful
If you like old-school, turn-based, rock, paper, scissors games this game is certainly one of the best to be released in that category since Disciples or HOMM V. The graphics and sound are pretty good for this type of ga... Read Full Review4 of 4 users found the following review helpful

Fantasy Wars seemed to be the 3D clone of Strategic Simulations's Fantasy General. The unit classification and battle mechanics are very similar with some minor improvements. Attack types and sequence are still restr... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
This is a fun little diversion. I've been into military games, starting with Avalon Hill, since back in the early '70's. After playing and owning literally hundreds of board and PC military simulations, I've found few ... Read Full Review6 of 6 users found the following review helpful
Most peoples just categorize it with Heroes of Might and Magic; or even with Civilisations games...Game-play wise I would compare it to titles from Galactic Assault: PoP (& Domination), to Celtic Legends (Amiga 500) with... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
