Journey back to the realm of Ardania, the land that cannot go an entire week without being conquered, and conquer it once again!

Che dire di questo warlock master of Arcane , inanzitutto senza leggere tutta la recensione, prendentelo solo scontato, perchè io l'ho trovato in un bundle.Il gioco in se per se è carino, ma la cosa che colpisce subito è che è TROPPO semplice, l'unica cosa che bisogna tenere conto è il mantenimento delle truppe, poi il gioco si divide in due, sfornamento delle truppe e ricerca di incantesimi. Il turno infatti si possono lanciare incantesimi, ma una volta finito capisci che l'unici incantesimi che tiri sono quelli di evocazione... quindi troppo semplificato.Poi la mappa è tipo-simil-civilization, non ha nulal a che vedere con il grande, ma da gioco di strategia io lo vedo, questo warlock, come un giochetto arcade più che strategia, perchè di strategia io NON ne vedo.Vai avanti sforni truppe e distruggi il nemico, che il più delle volte rimane immobile e DICO mai mi ha attaccato.
Lo consiglio per chi si avvicina alla strategia e vuole sapere le basi di essa.O hai ragazzetti che vogliono proprio giocare a un gioco e vincere facile... Non lo depenno perchè qualche aspetto che si salva ce l'ha.

NOTE: Since people will see this game and say: "this looks like Civilization 5." I will say it right now that the only similarity between this game and Civilization 5 are the Hexagon Based Grid Map, Leadership Choice and User Interface (UI). Everything else is completely different.

INTRODUCTION:
Warlock: Master of the Arcane, despite sharing the same look as the more popular Civilization series, is definitely NOT the same game. Warlock: Master of the Arcane plays differently with its own mechanic that delivers a lot of fun to strategy and fantasy world players alike.

It is an X4 Strategy game originally released in 2012. It lets the player take the role of one of several 'Great Mages' who vie for control of the world of Ardania (from the Majesty Series of games) using vast armies and mighty spells to aid them in their struggle.

PROS:
+ Fantasy Theme: -This game places you in a fantasy world populated by different mystic and magical creatures. Raise an empire of the Undead, Monsters, Humans or Elves and utilize a wide variety of magical spells to buff your forces or smite your foes.

+ Combat Focused Gameplay: -The Empire building on this game is based primarily on combat, fighting with the other factions and the different monsters that constantly threaten your borders. It delivers a very satisfying gameplay since most Magical Spells will make for some very interesting strategy. (Ex. Having problem crossing that lake? = Waterwalk.)

+ Extensive Upgrades: - Each military unit has so many upgrade choices each time they level-up that once they reach max level, they can be called Hero units in their own right. Add to this your Tech upgrades and Spell buffs, then you will have beast of an army.

+ Epic World: -The game offers your standard Small, Medium, Large and Huge map sizes but it also allows you to add more 'Worlds' that you can invade. Just look for the portal that goes there and fight extremely dangerous monsters inside before reaping the rewards.

CONS:
- No Vsync: -This is inexcusable. The game suffers greatly from Screen Tearing and yet the options menu offers no Vertical Synchronization option to mitigate this. The player will be forced to use manual Vsync provided by the Nvidia Control Panel (or its AMD equivalent).

- Brain-Dead AI: -The AI really needs some more work to be done. I have seen the AI countless of times mobilize for an invasion, only to cancel it the last moment and just have its army run around in circles rather than coordinate a proper attack. The monsters roaming the country side poses more of a threat than the Faction AI. (It might be different on Hard or Impossible)

- Lack of Variety: -There are 16 different Great Mages you can play OR your own Custom Mage, but the bonuses or faction specialty is so negligible that it almost makes no difference. Add to this, there are only THREE, playable starting races in the game.

- Poor Research Tree: -Instead of Tech, you research Spells, which is good, but there is no Research Tree available. as far as I know, the game randomly generates 5 spells and will require the player to choose one of those spells to research.

CONCLUSION:
In its own rights, Warlock: Master of the Arcane is a very refreshing take on the 4X Turn-based Strategy Genre. I definitely feel this game deserve your attention if you are a 4X or Strategy fan in general. It provides a fun and enjoyable experience.

This is a pretty decent turn-based stategy, quite similar to Civ 5 in style, but in a fantasy setting. It does have a few downsides- the UI is a little bit clunky with you using left click to do everything which is quite unwieldy. It would be better if you used the strategy convention of left click to select and right click to give commands. You can only cast one spell per turn, which means that I don't bother casting most of the available spells, because healing and damage spells are the most useful. It's still worth getting.

Its a mix from Age of Wonders and Civilisations 5 (I mean REALLY a more or less one to one copy of it's interface). And even if its so similar to those game it still does not support simultanious rounds. civ 5 and AoW both have simultanious rounds. this is very very sad. because the game would be very nice else. if you want to play this game in multiplayer i strongly recommend looking for something else. otherwise if you only wish to play it in singleplayer you'll probably be very satisfied with it.
i'm not sure if multiplayer was planed during devlopment. i think it was rather a bonus feature they updated later and that might be a very neat feature usually, but here it's so poorly done that it takes a lot of the fun that you could have had.

otherwise its a good & fun game and this review should only be of importance if you are looking for a multiplayer game.
