Just like Civilization but with a fantasy theme ie: Rulers/Players are Wizards, Monsters, Undead, with a focus on casting spells.

More stream-lined in the micro-management than the others, & it's easier to keep tabs on all your units etc.
If you like Civ or Anno style of play you'll be right at home here.
There's nothing particularly not to like, it just lacks a bit of the depth of the others.

Click, click, click, just one more turn...

Get ready for an endless sea of "neutrals" and "monsters". No, really. Nonstop, with new dens spawning every 20 turns or so. You can't ever clear land and just leave it as safe, because the game continually vomits troops into the middle of your lands.

This is a real eye-opener game. Unique design concept deep heart and it made ​​a very good detail. Plot is entirely inferior to Hollywood blockbusters. Role model is very fine, making good interface. So what? You worth trying to play!

Blends 4X with monsters and magic. If you're tired of Civ you might want to try this.

Sometimes you just want something to kill and take over cities or empires. Use gargantuan ogres and vampiric rabbits as well. The GREAT feeling when you use just one unit of knights to take down a capital. Having one unit so overpowered it seiges an entire city all by its lonesome. Cast spells that will cause the others anguish; bless your cities and units with holy spells.
Also maybe a little of turn based action as well if that's what your into...then maybe you have the patience for the multiplayer because I sure don't.

This game is fun for reason's I just can't even comprehend. Although it is tedious for waiting for the monster's turn and such, it is really fun just killing them for making you wait so long then capture all their land so they can't even spawn anymore.
I think this game deserves some more sugar and crack money because this makes me high and can't get enough(even though I haven't touched the game in a while).

Very similar to Age of Wonders, those familiar with the franchise will find old concepts like leveling heros, unit enchantments, and summoning packaged in a new engine. The best way to describe it is like if someone combine Civ V and Age of Wonders, very fun game, though rough around the edges.

A good TBS game. It's somewhat simple compared to, say, Civ, and it lacks Age of Wonders' tactical battles, but I still find it find to unite Ardania under my rule. I Love that each faction feels different from the others, but so far I've found that doesn't matter by mid game since you'll end up with cities from every faction anyways.

Launched it for card drops but played it on every account I have, never thought I'll play it but now writing a review just to share how good this game is. Its simple for understanding and easy to start playing. Its beatiful, graphics design reminds me Majesty games and I love it.
Game about 8 factions negotiating stuff in fantasy world with fantasy creatures, magic and skeletons. Before game you may choose faction and type of creatures you will control -- people, trolls, etc and skeletons. Also, at some point, you may hire lord creature or capture enemy city and make other type of creatures including skeletons.

This is a pretty good game not favorite but it's ok. Strategic and it's pretty fun but not that big of a deal if you compare this to other games such as League Of Legends and such still good game and all but just not a big deal to me personally. Visuals are nice the SP is pretty good and it helps novice players get a good feel ofhow to play the game etc. So overall just a 7/10.

This one is a turn based strategy game,
I really liked it, Why? Let's explain.
First of all I got the idea of the game in 20 minutes ~ and then I started rocking, the tutorial explains a lot about the main things so you will get the idea of the game in no time (I've played only empire earth in strategy games category).
You can control and change game settings so it will match your own taste and difficulty:
You have 5 different difficulty levels which you can choose.
You may choose up to 5 (I think) extra worlds.
You may choose how many rivals will be.
You may choose faction, your character, your starting race and starting spell.
And the terrian of the world (flat or not).
And some extra things:
There are some states between factions:
Peace, War, Alliance and anti-aggresive. These made the game really cool and not boring.

No other game has done a better job at paying homage to Master of Magic than Warlock - Master of the Arcane. This is once heck of a "just one more turn" game. Fantastic graphics, deep strategy and so many ways to play. Great fun and a grand game. Honestly, maybe a bit better than Warlock 2, as that game suffers from a much narrower campaign. Warlock is a must have for fans of MoM and MoO style games - and the great humor of the Majesty universe shines throughout. 5 outta 5 wands up!

I'm not sure about this game. When I'm in the mood, this game is awesome, but when I'm not ... I cannot even look at it.
It is not like other grate games that can get you into the mood.

Just downloaded this game and i've realised that this is just like Majesty <2 with some Civilizations style but it's farm from Civ for sure! Would recommend to anyone who loves the Majesty series (or Civilizations)!
