About This Game

A World to Build… or Destroy.

“A war is coming… a war between East and West - between Kingdoms and Empires, between man and Fallen. A future of blood and death, of chaos and destruction.” – the Oracle Ceresa

Design your sovereign with unique talents and weapons for the trials ahead. Learn powerful spells to enchant units, summon elementals, or destroy those who oppose you. Found cities and research technologies to expand your influence. Send your champions on quests to recover ancient artifacts, gain allies, or obtain the great wealth lost during the Cataclysm.

The land is not simply waiting to be claimed; it must be conquered. Darkling camps, ogre lairs and caves waiting to be explored dot the landscape. In remote corners of the world, tireless butchermen, fell demons and legendary locations are waiting to be found. Explore Varda, a pre-Cataclysm city defended by golems that have turned on the citizens and made the city into a prison. Defeat Sarog to claim the Temple of the Dragon and recruit Ashwake Dragons to your cause. Claim the Flooded Graveyard or the Pit of Sarpah to harness the powerful magical energy of those locations.

Key features:

  • Recruit Champions - Equip them with rare magical items that you create or discover. Customize your champion’s special abilities and traits as they gain levels.
  • Fight in tactical battles - Battle enemy armies or the wild creatures of the world. Command your armies directly and choose between the special attacks and spells your units have learned.
  • Design your units - Customize their armor and weapons. Equip units with mounts to quickly close on enemy units. Train them with specialized traits like Discipline and Ignore Pain.
  • Liberate or Enslave - Transform Elemental into a noble kingdom, or an empire where citizens are fuel for your spells. Build studies and workshops to make your citizens more productive, or gallows and sacrificial altars to keep your citizens motivated.
  • Explore Wildland Areas - Be cautious when entering these areas; they offer their own rewards and treasures, but you will need high-level champions, advanced armies and powerful spells to survive.
  • Build your own world - Use the included modding tools to create new improvements, locations, quests or factions. Design new spells in the Particle Cauldron and entire worlds with the Cartographer’s Table.

A mixture of 4x turn-based strategy like "Civilization" with the RPG elements, namely, a heroes, who you can level with thousands of perks and items. Yeah, fantasy world as background, which gives us a strong urge to compare this game with the "Heroes of Might and Magic" or "King's Bounty". Well, in spirit it is much closer to the "Spellforce" series, but, yeah, in turn-based way.

Overall, not a bad game to spend some time... A pleasure for eyes and mind, if you have a thing for turn-based strategies. Yet it is a waste of time and money, just because there exists a much more featured version of the same game, Fallen Enchantress Legendary Heroes. There you'll find achievements, steam cards, even some multiplayer challenge. Basically, the story is just the same as with Mount'n' Blade game, and its inheritor - Warband. You don't need to buy the first, because you'll see all the same stuff, but more and of better quality.

So, I'll set my mark as 7.25/10, and thumb it down the game only because it was turned down by the devs, in favor of standalone add-on "Legendary Heroes".

Lots of confusion regarding this title. Let me clear it up.

Fallen Enchantress ( FE ) was released on Oct. 23, 2012.
Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes ( FELH ) was released on May 22, 2013.

FELH is a standalone expansion, which means FE isn't required to play it. For various reasons, FELH is the game you will want to play. So why am I reviewing FE?

Fallen Enchantress: Ultimate Edition ( FEU ) was released on Nov. 13, 2015.

When FEU was released, Stardock, the developer and publisher of FE, FELH, and FEU, removed the possiblity to buy FE only; now you can only buy FELH or FEU. As 99% of the reviews you are reading relate to FE, not to FEU, they are not as useful as they could be. Still confused? Think of FEU as the inbred son of FE and FELH. Now try to forget what you just pictured. So what are you getting when you buy FEU? You get:

  • Fallen Enchantress (FE)
  • FE Map Pack DLC
    +
  • Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes (FELH)
  • FELH Map Pack DLC
  • FELH Quest Pack DLC
  • FELH Loot Pack DLC
  • FELH The Dead World DLC
  • FELH Leader Pack DLC
  • FELH Battlegrounds DLC

That's two complete game, but while FE was an o.k. game (reviewed somewhat harshly by my fellow Steamers), FELH is better and most importantly, it's the reason why you want to buy FEU. If you're thinking "Hey, you said that already, but with different words", then I obviously wasn't repeating it for you, you're too bright.

Now, since each DLC is US$3.00 you are much better off buying this package for US$10.00 when it's on Lunar New Year sale. Basic maths bro. Want some more basic maths, buddy? If you play this game 100 hours, each hour of your sad life spent playing this game will have cost you US$0.10. Now don't go telling me what you could get for US$0.10 in Cambodia; I don't care. But you should definitely go to Cambodia. YOLO.

If you've made it up to here, you probably want to know why you should play either of these games. Thing is, I don't know you, so I can't tell you. They are Fantasy 4X Turn-Based Strategy games w/ some RPG flavor. If you like Fantasy 4X Turn-Based Strategy games w/ some RPG flavor, you will like them.

At this point, I think I need to end this review like every other review I read on Steam:

10/10 Would give a history lesson in my first review again.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! BUY FALLEN ENCHANTRESS: LEGENDARY HEROES INSTEAD!

Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes contains this game and much more! Buy that game instead!

Dear Steam: Why is this even still on here?!
