Personal Rating: Great Game, balanced, addictive and features rich.
Classic Rating: ★★★★☆

I loved it from the first match - which i lost :)
As you know this is a fantasy turn-based strategy game: what i liked most is the great variety of mages (lords), troops (from humans to goblins to undead), monsters (snakes, bats, wolves, bears) and spells (elemental, arcane, attack/defense, healing/blessing), at your disposal.
You are never bored, even when you have to wait some turns in order to gather your resources.. moreover, the game HUD offers a truly good aid telling you which actions can be taken at your turn (build, research, attack, trade or diplomatic affairs).

The game automatically saves your match (you can save by yourself anytime, though); gameplay is basically one single battle against one or more enemy mages, over one or more worlds, till you achieve the victory or die trying. Multiplayer is supported too but i haven't tried it yet.
IMHO, one thing could have been done better: tutorial and general guidance through the game when you play it for the very first time: it's not that easy to be ready to go but the learning curve is not that high either.. once you start exploring menu and icons you get the feeling on what is what and how things work.

Strongly recommended, you can't miss Warlock: Master of the Arcane.

Warlock is entertaining hex based turn based strategy game. One Scenario took me over 10 hours to win
Positive
+Well generated worlds, gives you a planetary feel, with climate zones and you can actually make a trip around world.
+Terrain usage, in defense and on attacks
+Loads of spells
Neutral-arguable things
/No Campaign mode, it tries a diffrent aproach. Rule the world with some side quests
/Little hard to start playing this, because it wont raise your awerness to all gameplay elements, you will be just thrown into the game. This is my first game of this type.
Negative
-Annoying monster spawning
-olny 3 types of quests
I will reccomend this game because i had fun, and had some really intense warfare with weaker enemy, after i allready had conquered everything else, but he was well defended on his island kingdom, with superior navy.

-Quick Review-
Warlock - Master of the Arcane is a turn-based strategy game, like many strategy games, the longer you play, the more elaborate the tactics get, and the longer your turn gets as your control over the world increases!
...or you get constantly bombarded by random world events and you can't expand because you're fighting off hoards of giants, dragons, undead, and random quest heroes.

-Detailed breakdown review-
Story: Welcome to Adrania, maybe you've been here before, maybe this is your first visit, regardless welcome, welcome. This land has appeared in numerous games, the first game I played in the series was "Majesty Gold Edition".
In this game, you are one of (X) amount of Mages/Warlocks, depending on the world size you may have more or less mages/AI/NPC's in the game. The more AI the more competition in the game. (But on the flip side, the more people fighting back the wild landscape... and trust me, it's wild)

Game Play: Starting with the most basic explanation about the game play, you have Hex's which represent segments of the land, very similar other strategy games, some hex's increase gold, food, or magic... while others are just taking up space, or even reduce values.
I compare this game to one of the Civilization games except that you're fighting with magic instead of science, and the "Rock, Paper, Scissors" game of Land, Air, and Water units. It is now more like "Rock, Paper, Scissors, TNT, Chuck Norris, God"; There's magic that you can cast, there's magic units, heroes which can be equipped with better armor and weapons, you can upgrade them with gold, in addition to the typical "ship, flying, and land" units.
I need to point out I haven't played the multiplayer yet. However, after looking it up, the game doesn't have "simultaneous turns", so the multiplayer will be at an even slower pace. You probably don't want to get into a very large game, smaller skirmishes so you can play the game for a day... ...instead of spanning over several weeks.

Achievements: There are no steam achievements for Warlock - Master of the Arcane.

Price: Warlock - Master of the Arcane is priced at $24.99. For me personally, strategy games have always had a high value because I play them long and really enjoy the challenge. I won't lie, I picked this game up for free from Humblebundle, but this game on a 50% or better sale is definitely worth it.

Conclusion: The first time I played Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim (released in 2000), was when I was in highschool, I had no idea that there were more games from the same universe! So once I heard the announcer's voice I thought "NO WAYYYYYY!!!!" I'm happy to have returned to Ardania!
As I said earlier in my review, this game is basically Civilization with Magic. While it's not the most well made strategy game out there, there's definitely enough fun stuff you can do in the game to keep you entertained for a long time. I find myself thinking "okay... one more turn, then I'll go to bed" And just keep telling myself that for another hour.
I recommend this game for standard strategy game fans, Chances are if you like Civ5, you can pick up this game... but you will find Civilization has been made much better and tighter fitting then Warlock - Master of the Arcane.

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.

My friend and I got this in a bundle, and decided to play multiplayer since we had no idea what we were doing.
I was an elven woman leading an army of spooky skeletons, and I had the Heal spell. I traded with my friend to get a useful spell, while giving him Shadow Bolt, which he couldn't use against my skeletons.
Then we waged war over donkeys.

10/10

Its fun to sit down and play with a friend when you have time, either teaming up against AI or Playing against each other.

Would Reccomend to anyone who enjoys 4X games with a fantasy theme.

Simple 4x game, nice introduction to the genre or a nice casual experience for the pro.

It's not got the complexity of other 4x games, instead Warlock goes down the route of funziez. It's a very casual experience that after a while can lose it's charm and turn into mediocrirt but for the first 10-20 hours will hold your attention competently.

Don't bother putting it on the highest difficulty, the ai spams an ocean of units and it's just ridiculous. There are many types of units with various abilites but nothing really new.

I like how your spells can interact with the landscape to create mountains and oceans. Levelling up was fun but a clear rip off of civ 5.

eventually the game feels stale, lifeless and mundane. It's probably you won''t finish a campaign before your too bored to go on.

not a very good 4x but fun for a good while. Worth it for £5 even if you've played all the other 4x games or are not up for learning anythign complex.

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.

I love this game. It's soooooooooooo good. I play with my boyfriend often, and am currently in a 3-way game, waiting to stomp their heads to the curb. >.>

Anyway, does anyone know if the complete edition allows you to play with the base game? I bought the complete edition for my friend last night, and I'm curious. :3

I'm sad I didn't give this game a try sooner, it's an absolute blast! The game is so in depth with it's units and buffs/ debuffs/ buildings/ research. Do not let the "Civilization V" look fool you, it is a completely different game, and in my personal opinion, far more entertaining than Civ V.

Fantastic game for people who love Civilization series.

It's a mixture of Civ5 (mostly), Heroes of Might and Magic (You have heroes that gain exp. and different races? Pehaps species would be a better word. This include Humans, Undead and various insect, and dragonlike species), and of course for fans of Majesty there is Ardania, and couple parallel (for the lack of better word) worlds. No to mention whole tree of Magic to research. And here is the only bug I've encountered. If you want to see all the spells, you've researched, you have to use smaller, not extended version of Magic Book. But this small bug, while may be annoing doesn't cloud the fun I had playing game. After over 200 rounds in one game it still manages to suprise me (in a good way), and it seems I will be playing it for years. 9/10 or 4,5/5

Warlock is a Majesty/Civ hybrid fantasy turn-based strategy game. It incorporates some fantastic RPG elements, allowing you to customise each individual unit all without complicating the gameplay. A must buy for fans of the genre. 8/10

As of now, this is the most-played game in my Steam Library. I played this obsessively for a few weeks, giving up entire weekends to it. When you start one of these games, be prepared to give up the next 20 hours of your life, because that's how long some of these games can take, depending on the game setup (difficulty, world size, victory conditions, etc.)

The graphics, music, sounds effects, and gameplay all perfectly complement each other, and they don't get old even after hours of gameplay. Because you don't want to leave a game unfinished, you end up saying, "Just one more turn, then I'll take a break." Three hours later, you're still playing, literally starving because you can't leave the game to cook some food. The game takes so long because it takes time to build up your force enough to overcome an enemy. There are also neutral monsters which pose a threat. Not to mention, you have to wait for the AI to finish their turns. The wait is totally worth it, because the feeling of slowly overcoming your opponents is addicting.

The AI isn't super smart, which is good or bad, depending on your perspective. Personally, I liked taking advantage of the flawed AI strategies, like sending their entire army to me by boat, which I destroyed before they could even land. Diplomacy with the AI is somewhat of a joke. They might make a truce with you, but they'll break it on a whim. I tried to be honorable with truces, but after you've played awhile, you start to understand the motivations of the AI when they make a truce, and you can tell when they are about to break it.

Another great aspect of this game is the random world generation and fog of war. From the initial setup, you have an idea of what the world is like, but not the details. Curiosity and fear of the unknown helps to maintain your interest as you explore the map.

After playing this, I tried Civilization 5, and personally, I hated it. I'd rather take a history class. Personally, I don't like playing games that remind me of reality. Warlock is a fantasy escape into another world, and it really absorbs you. I can't recommend it highly enough.
