Well lets look at the negatives:
#Firstly: WHY ISN'T THIS GAME ON EARLY ACCESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
&:Something I feel you must be aware of when getting this game is that it is STILL in beta. For a long time however this game was only in closed beta, and despite being officially "released" on Steam it is still only in open beta. They really need to clarify this!
#This isn't the only game of it's type on the market.
&:Other games such as Kings Bounty and Blackguards perform similar functions and are arguably better.
#This is not an OMG DAT GRAPHICS kind of game
&: I only include this detail as I'm aware there are those who prefer all their textures to be uber high res and have some absurdly high polygon count.
#I used to have there being no PvE mode here, however they have added a more than adequate one since I started playing..
#I have yet to see 2v2, 3v3, etc. modes.
&:Arguably a matter of preference I feel being able to fight along side or against multiple players would make the game a lot more interesting.
#Unless you wanna drop some cash your going to have to spend a lot of time playing to get higher level units
And now for the positives:
#Nice, well implemented art style
&:Dogs of War uses a very dark and dirty fantasy style that may not be for everyone. I personally find it to be well executed.
&:A crucial part of any game is context. Games of this type are always far more interesting when the player can connect to the characters they control, and Dogs of War does a good job of presenting an intriguing set up that will leave you curious and wanting to find out more about the characters and the world they're in.
#Solid well paced gameplay
&:The game is turn based so if you're a hard core RTS fan then this might not be for you.
&:The game has a time limit on turns so you don't have to worry about the other player stopping to eat, file their taxes, and maybe go on vacation before making the next move.
&:Also the gameplay itself allows for little in the way of a dull moment.
#The game is balanced
&:The game uses an "Army Points" system. Basically each unit is rated based on how much they can contribute in game. This helps in match making as a player with a bunch of uber powerful units wont get paired against a nube with a bunch of starters.
#Not a pay-to-win
&:Everything attributing to how effective you are in game thus far appears to be accessible to anyone playing the game without having to spend money. Not to say spending money wouldn't let you get some epic stuff, just that if you got said epic stuff you'll then be paired with other people who also have epic stuff, regardless of whether or not you are fully aware of how to use aforementioned epic stuff. So you're not paying to become more powerful then everyone else, just to skip the time it would have taken to build up the necessary in-game currency. (And perhaps get yourself nube stomped)
#Lots of interesting mechanics
&:Injury system, Leveling system, Charge attacks, Cover, Race mechanics, Stances, just to name a few.
#Plenty of potential
&:Looking at the wiki's and even some of the menus game mechanics is enough to tell you that Cyanide is no where near adding all the content they want to have in this game. Which is awesome considering how much they already have. Multiple game types, lots of different units, and even ways to customize them all look to be things players will have to look forward to in the near distant future.
#A dev team that's DEDICAITED to quality
&:Something I just felt deserved to be mentioned. This dev team didn't just rush their release. This game was set to go into open beta some time fall 2013, yet got pushed back because the devs didn't feel it was ready. And it's not like it's impossible to play right now, getting into the closed beta is rather simple, and they seam to still have a few keys left so I recommend you check out their facebook. These guys aren't rushing this, and seeing as they've now set a more solid release date (January if you didn't notice...) it's not because they're lazy. Otherwise they would have pushed it back like half a year or something... No it's because they're willing to take there time to make sure they get it right. And I for one appreciate that.
#I personally find it fun and have no problems with playing my game to get more stuff to have more fun playing the game
So yeah... Also it's free, so why the hell not? At least give it a shot, or if you're not into strategy then look up some gameplay vids when it comes out. If you are into strategy then what's stopping you?
That's all for now, please pardon my bad grammar, and thanks for reading. I really hope this helped.
P.S. Seeing as this has a good chance of being one of the few reviews people see before they decide to download this game I want to do my best to make it as informative as possible. So please feel free to leave comments on how I might make it better.
