"A fantasy civilization type game. Very good and has interesting mechanics even if it's a bit dated. Very good alternative to buying the newer one."

It is like civ5 with magic. And not in a way that would ruin fantasy and strategy by cobbling to ideas together. This seems to be a very well made game that I have enjoyed spending time playing.

Quite a good Civ-type fantasy game, pretty shallow though and not particularly long lasting unless you're into multiplayer.

WOW, If you enjoyed the original Master of Magic, then this game is for you... Multiplayer is a bit slow since turns can get pretty long after several hours have passed. This game really delivers solid Multiplayer gameplay where everything works as it should. Great Job!

ENG:

If you are looking for more accessible and playable strategy game like Civilization or the Might & Magic Heroes kind of game, so here it is!

In fact, sid meier's civilization series is simply too difficult to play, which I can not therefore recommend to many.

That's why I think this game is by far the best Civilization game you've ever played.

Referral! :3


FIN:

Jos etsit helpommin lähestyttävää ja pelattavaa strategia peliä kuten Civilization tai Might & Magic Heroes tyyppistä peliä niin, tässä se on!

Itse sid meier's civilization sarja on yksinkertaisesti aivan liian hankala peli, jota en voi siksi suositella monille.

Siksi mielestäni tämä peli on ylivoimaisesti paras sivilisaatio peli, jota olen ikinä pelannut.

Suositteluni! :3

Civilization V with far slower gameplay in general, less control on what happens and a focus more on killing everything than everything else such as population / city managment, economy managment, religion control and other general stuff in civilization V.

I would say just give this game a miss, it is not as good as Civilization V and doesnt feel enjoyable at all as it is just far to slow and you have 0 control on how you expand or handle your empire.

Overall:
Avoid this game.

The game:
I don't want to make a full review here, but the game is too simple, to be satisfying.
I've tried multiple other similar games, and a fair deal of them, are better than this one.
It's not garbage, but it has no depth to it. Therefore, I will not recommend it.

Verdict:
Too simple, dull and buggy. Irritating and boring more than fun.

Score:
6,5/10.

I got this game at Humble Bundle for about the price it's worth. Free.

Seriously. It is a clone of Master of Magic or Age of Wonders, but is just 10% of what are (it is too simplictic), and is such a resource hog that it runs at about 10% of their performance in their age.

I honestly tried to find if there's more to it. F A I L

5/10 would not recommend.
It´s a nice Game to ALONE, but with friends it gets annoying really fast.
Each has a seperate Turn, which makes one round take AGES.

I really wanted to like this game, but the controls are so backwards compared to other 4X games I've played, I just can't break out of old habits.

Unlike Civ, Endless Space, etc, movement is on left click, not right click, and you can't left click and drag to move the map around. This makes it harder to manage units, because I'd try to move the map and end up moving a unit I didn't want to move...

If you can look past that, it seemed like it would be a fun game, but I didn't make it very far in.

Multiplayer requires each player to go one at a time. In today's age of gaming, this is simply unacceptable. /yawn

What is this? A Civ V mod? NO? Looks like it though.
Seriously don't buy it, thank God I got it for free... It's a Civ V copy-paste.
Unless you want to waste your money, stay away from this crap of a game.

Please purchase this game whilst it is on sale. They now include all the DLC in a single package, and it's really fun. It's in the vein of civilisation, but with a magical theme, which in my opinion makes it more enjoyable.
