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 sub-races are useless, cool, but useless. I still find myself wanting to play the old Spell-Force, which I do. I like that they kept free-game mode. I do like how you start with at least some resources. There is also less to manage, but I guess that is preference. I am also surprised at the lack of wide-screen support. Still, it is worth a try at current pricing.
