I enjoyed this game a lot. D&D meets Civilization. The only thing that frustrates me is that the spell research seems very random.

I know that it can seem disingenuous to leave a review for a strategy game when you have so little playtime, but I feel justified in this case. The game is very glitchy and unresponsive. The controls and interface both leave a lot to be desired. Left clicking to both select and move a unit was a terrible design decision. Unlike games like Endless Legend or Civilization, Warlock focuses mainly on the combat, and it isn't very fun. The whole thing feels unpolished and gives me no reason whatsoever to push on.

This game is really enjoyable, as a fan of the hotm and total war series I have to say this is as close as I have seen to combining them. I bought Endless Legend first and I have to say this game makes that one look so incredibly dull in comparison. The only problem I have with warlock is the difficulty, even on the highest level, impossible, it is actually pretty easy. The ai does not know how to counter spells that affect pathing, so as cool as raising a mountain range to block enemies or beaching enemy ships is the ai does not have an effective way to counter the tactic. The raise/lower land spells come early too so there is really no way to lose if you know how to use them effectively. 90% of this game is fun but the 10% that includes chasing weak enemies that flank you to attack cities or getting to a point where winning is inevitible and spending 5 hours cleaing up is not fun.

Conclusion: Buy this game if it is 15 dollars or less, you will enjoy it enough to make the purchase worth it at this cost or lower.

Got me hooked... again. Another late night, just one more turn, where did all my beer go? game.

Like Civ, its a turn based 4X (whatever that means) strategy crawler that just won't cut it with the shooter crowd. But hey, nothing cuts it with the shooter crowd, they even complain about their favourites until they get nerfed to heck and go plan another shooter to moan about.

THIS game has spells, and dragons, and plays like civilisations worst wet dream, just without the ridiculous evolving through the ages bollix. Go get it, play it, then tell your newly estranged partner that it wasn't your fault, Skull sent ya.

This is a very light-weight Turn-based strategy game that is perfect for those new to the turn-based strategy genre of games. It has decent graphics for what it is and is customizable enough to provide hours or even days of play on a given map. I love the units' speech.

If there were a downside to this game, I would suggest that you might start seeking some additional complexity after a while. I personally went on to the latest Civilization game and a few others. That doesn't detract from this game at all. Warlock is what it is and it is very good for the niche it fills.

I heartily recommend it.

A well-crafted, easy-to-play game with an entertaining fantasy bent, Warlock will have you staying up nights taking one more turn to blast King Rrat to kingdom come. Think of it as Civilization V but with a fantasy setting. My biggest gripe with the game, that you can't refuse a demand. It's only accept or war. Which is annoying. However, it's everything one may want from a serious turn based strategy. It looks and feels like civilization, but has the intensity of Command and Conquer with the in-depth unit levelling system of Majesty. No steam workshop support but you can't have it all. It's a fun game that you will be saying to yourself, just one more turn.

For this game, turn-based is synonym of slow-paced. Every move you make you have to wait... a single game can last for hours

If you got bored of Civilization 5 but want something similar, you should like this game.

If you don't have this game, I recommend buying Warlock 2 instead, as it is effectively the same game with minor improvements and new features.

I have played, alot, of this game. It focuses mostly on the 4X's but little on the negotiation between players mostly its about combat. All players have 3 ways to think about you, helpful, ignore and enemy; depending on if you are in an alliance, have a non-aggression deal, or by being at war/acting hostile.
The game is similiar to civ 5 so I'll list the differences instead.
Making units depends on having the building like in starcraft, but they always come from the city.
With the elf DLC you can build or control any unit in the game, otherwise your limited to 90% of them, see above.
Their are three main branches of unit types: human, undead, monster, and DLC branches koatl, elf.
Their are heroes in the game offered randomly to the player at a price.
Magic, anything can be enchanted/have a spell cast on it.
The game has two types of unaffiliated factions, neutral and monsters.
With the armageddon DLC their is a mode where everyone must fight together against a new threat, CIV needs this.
Their are dungeons which can amp up the difficulty if you choose to explore them called world portals.

a Starcraft and Civ mashed-potato with magic gravy

For someone like me who prefers Real-time strategy games, playing Warlock - Master of the Arcane was a very pleasant experience
I had played Civilization V before and I liked it. But for some unfortunate circumstances I couldn't get it on Steam, so I settled with this one. Turns out this game wasn't that different from Civ V, all the core elements are there, with the addition of a fantasy setting, mythological units and the ability to research and cast spells.
The goal of the game is simple enough, all you need to do is to defeat the other mages in the map. To do this, however, you need to manage your cities and resources, expand your empire, explore the game's world and capture important resources, research the right spells that match your strategy, and guide your troops and upgrade them. On paper it doesn't seem different from a RTS game, but the turn-based system is a bit more tricky. Unlike RTS games, it does not emphasize on micro-management, but careful planning before making any move and having a strategy.


The game has some optimization issues, the story is non-existant and the game could get a bit repititive if you don't know what you're doing. But it's still worth every penny (and seeing how the game is on sale all he time, it won't cost you much anyway)
I say it's a decent alternative if you can't afford Civ V, and a good start if you want to give this genre a try without spending much on the other more famous titles.

Just look at the insane number of hours I logged into this game.

Do I really need to write a long review nobody will ever read?

Feel the urge to become a powerful wizard and dominate the world?
It's a no-brainer, get this game, it has so much replay value.

Most fun addictive fantasy turn based strategy game since the old Master of Magic game.

Smart (grand and tactical) strategy with hi-fantasy; together again.
Remember the classic hexagonal war series Panzer General? The series went onto make all kinds of sequels, one of which was Fantasy General. That game scratched an itch for me in that I like Grand Strategy War games and I like Fantasy games whether strategy, tactical, role plying or other. It was a solid effort but something was missing. Warlock re-treads this ground in Wizard’s robes and does it quite well. It has the tight and balanced combat of the PG series with plausible and clever (role based) fantasy units brought from several traditions.
The Bonus to me is that there is as well a generous layer of Civ-5 era Civ-type flavour heaped on. Research tree, Religious favour, building wonders (sorta), and cultures with distinctive units all have their place in the overall game play and strategies.
This game may not have the most original ingredients but it has taken the right amount from each of it’s influences and mixed them well.
Although I like this game quite a bit, I do have some complaints:
- There does seem to be a memory leak where one needs to reload the game every few turns to prevent processing slow down.
- The underworld's populations seem to grow exponentially out of control by mid-game.

Overall I would recommend this game to gamers who are any flavour of strategy enthusiast or specialize in turn-based-strategy, hex war games, fantasy strategy or are looking for fantasy/strategy options away from the main stream.
- Overall: 8/10.
- Tighten up the scripting: 9/10.

Civ 5 with wizards.

You have 3 resources, gold, food and mana. You use mana to maintain enchantments and magical units, as well as cast spells. Food goes to supporting cities and units. Gold goes to building and army upkeep, as well as buying new units.

It's simpler, but still crazy addictive. There are also 'Lords', basically hero units that require a lot of upkeep but can equip artefacts and are essentially more powerful than standard units. Seriously, if you pile the enchantments on, these guys can get ridiculously OP, it's so fun.

There's a religion system, where you do quests to earn favour with gods that govern particular spheres (such as death, strength or the sun). At first I thought, oh great, another list of made up deity names for me to learn, but there's not so many and they all make sense. It's especially easy to remember as they have polar opposite gods as well, e.g Dauros is the god of order and law, his rival is Fervus, god of chaos and nature.

I'm not a massive strategy fan and I love this game. Fans of the 4X genre might want something more complicated, but this is a worthy buy for me.

Great game. Basically its your typical hexbased strategy game but with magic. If a battle isn't going too well, BOOM! Fireball! I found it a good way to pass the time when I was listening to podcasts or radio shows in the background. It can be a bit easy on the normal setting especially if you just build a pile of towns very quickly but the expert difficulty seems like more of a fair fight. The ai can be a bit stupid and I did have some screen tearing on my old computer that were a bit awkward to fix but overall no huge problems to report. A-
