Рецензии

“Warlock 2 is an incredible well crafted game that is easy to bury hours into. Like any other good strategy game it can take some time to find the right strategy that will suit your play style, but that process of discovery is what makes these games so enticing.”
9/10 – Digitally Downloaded

“Warlock II might take place in a silly universe where narrators like to impersonate Sean Connery and kingdoms are ruled by regal rats or chatting skeletons, but Ino-Co has taken its construction very seriously. It’s exactly what a sequel should be, keeping the spirit of the original but improving every aspect.”
8/10 – PCGamesN

“Warlock 2 is definitely a step in the right direction – it takes everything that was good about the first game, and refines it a bit, while also leaving the original experience intact.”
8/10 – Strategy Informer

Об этой игре

Мироздание пережило Армагеддон, но миры были расколоты, и тебя, могущественного Великого мага, изгнали на один из таких осколков. Пришла пора вернуться в Арданию и отомстить тому, кто осмелился отобрать твои владения. Сквозь земли, населенные ужасными тварями, сквозь армии других Великих магов ты пробьешься домой, чтобы там встретиться с главным врагом – Единым и его Наместниками. Смети всех, кто встанет у тебя на пути, верни себе Арданию и соверши святую месть!

Warlock 2 - пошаговая стратегия в фэнтезийном сеттинге. Сразись с Великими магами, командуй своей армией в жестоких битвах, используй древнюю магию и веру в богов как свое оружие.

Играй в одиночку или с друзьями в режиме кампании «Изгнанник» или в традиционном режиме «песочницы» - «Война Великого Совета».

Особенности

  • Владей Древней магией: Изобилие заклинаний (170+) и продвинутая система исследований позволяют творить могучее колдовство, создавать разнообразные проклятия и высвобождать невероятные силы элементов, смерти и жизни.
  • Командуй армиями: Сотни юнитов, доступные для найма, каждый со своими тактическими особенностями, создают настоящий пошаговый тактический варгейм на стратегической карте. Люди, монстры, нежить, эльфы и сварты, а также странники – это только расы, а ведь есть еще лорды, коатли, драконы и не только!
  • Warlock – единственная игра в жанре, в которой игра в сингле и мультиплеере совершенно идентична – каждое решение одинаково важно и нет никаких кнопок «Автобоя». Совместное PvE, совместное PvP или просто PvP – рамок не существует – играй так, как тебе нравится!
  • Построй империю процветающих городов: Несколько путей развития, специализация городов – выжми максимум возможного, чтобы создать стабильный приток богатства, магических сил, и ресурсов для своей армии.
  • Игровые режимы: Попробуй свои силы в новом режиме кампании «Изгнанник» - вернись по осколкам миров назад к своему законному трону. Или же просто играй в традиционном режиме «песочницы», сражаясь с другими Великими магами в «Войне Великого Совета».

Предрелизный обзор
Не то, чтобы игра совсем уж плохая... Совсем нет. Просто явно видно, что сделана лишь бы срубить бабла. Очень мало развития по сравнению с 1й частью.

Warlock 2 is a truly fantastic game, despite what some of these reviews may say. If you're a lover of 4X strategy games and fantasy lore, get this game -- you won't be sorry.


IMPORTANT!
--------------

One of the reasons this game has so many harsh ratings is because it can be a little buggy. But on the right system (Windows 7, 8 and 10 all work well), it's a ton of fun and you'll encounter few bugs. I can safely say this after 2000+ hours of game play.

However, the Linux and Mac versions do not work. The developers were forced to abandon the game before they were fixed, so avoid this game if you're using one of those OS's.


PROS
------

There are more pros than I have time to list for this game, but here are the ones that stick out the most:

- Tons of flavorful units
- Varied races
- Simple but highly strategic combat system
- Wide variety of fantasy resources
- Interesting spells
- Great game modes (Sandbox is a single big map with subworlds; Battle for Outplanes is on "shard" worlds that offers an entirely different experience and is probably more beginner-friendly)
- Challenging campaign modes
- Rich and comical lore
- Excellent replay value
- Tons of fun -- one of the best games I've ever played (and I've played A LOT of games over the years)


CONS
------

BUGS

There are a few subborn bugs and the developers are no longer able to work on the title to fix them. On Windows, none of the bugs are truly game-breaking.

To give you an idea, roughly 1 in 20 games I've played have crashed at some point. (Games are usually 20+ hours long.) The good news is that you can usually "correct" a game-crash bug by loading an autosave from just a turn or two prior and doing your turn a little differently.

Note that there are also a few mods that fix a number of minor bugs -- Renaissance Mod fixes many of them.


SUBPAR AI

As a beginner, the AI seems quite strong. But once you know what you're doing, the AI is lackluster and you'll catch it making some bone-headed moves, even on the most difficult setting.

Again, a few mods exist that have improved the AI -- Legendary Mode AI is one and Renaissance Mod is another. The AI still makes the occasional poor move, but the games themselves are much more challenging with either of these mods.


NOT FOR LINUX / MAC

Despite what the description says, users agree that the game is not in a playable state for Linux and Mac users.


DIFFERENCES BETWEEN WARLOCK 1
---------------------------------------

The first Warlock was widely criticized on two counts:

1) It looked like a Civ 5 clone. True, it does have a very similar feel to the UI in Civ 5, and it has retained this feel for the sequel. But the gameplay is quite different than a Civ title, with only slight similarities.

2) The game lacked strategic depth. To win, all you really needed to do was to "city spam" your way to victory. There was no downside for having multiple cities, making most games feel like a race to see who could expand the fastest.

You could also "perk" (buff) as many units as you wanted just by capturing a single resource tile.

Warlock 2, however, changed both of these things for the better by adding some much-needed limitations.


GREATER LIMITATIONS

Some people who enjoyed the freedom Warlock 1 granted with regards to city spamming and limitless unit perks are likely to be turned off by the sequel. I know I was... until I learned how to "replay" the game.

In fact, fans of the first title pushed back so hard on the city limit that the developers even added the ability to turn this off when you create a new game. But just as the developers noted that disabling the city limit is "not recommended," I will echo the same. The gameplay is so much richer with some scarcity and consequences for overextending -- just as it is in the best 4X games.


MORE STRATEGIC DEPTH

As I learned to play with the newly laid out limitations on number of cities and availablity of perks, along with the new unrest system, I discovered that the developers really did know what they were doing. The game has TONS more strategic depth with these limitations in place. So again -- take some of these negative reviews with a grain of salt.

The developers really did a lot to improve the game with these simple changes. When people say Warlock 2 is just a clone of Warlock 1, they are sorely mistaken.


SUMMARY
-----------

Aside from World of Warcraft, I don't think I've ever spent so much time playing (and enjoying) a game.

Is Warlock 2 perfect?

No.

The cons I described above should be fair warning to those who are concerned about getting this game.

Is Warlock 2 worth your time and money?

YES. Absolutely.

Sure, It does have some imperfections -- many of which I've managed to correct myself in my own popular mod for the game, Renaissance Mod:

Note that Renaissance adds loads of fun new content to the game, too.


TL;DR - If you're running Windows and you love fantasy and 4X games, get this game and the DLC -- especially if it's on sale. You'll be doing yourself a disservice not to give it a try.

If it was as bad as some of these other reviews would have you believe, there wouldn't be such a loyal fanbase for the game.

Just like the original:
This is a really fun 4X game that feels a bit like the Heroes of Might and Magic games with exploring of different planes, dungeons and worlds, as well as magic and spells being thrown around and researched.
Instead of nukes and missiles you got fireballs and world changing spells/events.

But it have more of mostly everything.

You know, I really am ticked right now. I truly enjoy the game, been hooked on it for the past three days, and I truly enjoy the first one, but I have never run into so many bugs and crashes from a game before. I do this, crash. I do that, crash. I'm not one to be writing reviews, ever, but this game truly has made me mad and disappointed. I enjoy it, I truly do, but the crashes are out of hand, and the editor!! I love making maps, I have made many from HOMM to Kohan and I have never been so frustrated with a game as I have been and am with this game. I want to play it, but after it crashed on me over 25 times in the past hour (NOT KIDDING) I truly regret ever buying this game, and that is truly sad becuase it's truly a fun game.
