About the Game

In Aarklash: Legacy take command of a mercenary squad in search of truth and guide it through countless battles.

Welcome to Aarklash, a land of chaos where incessant battles between the forces of Light, Destiny and Darkness have lasted since the beginning of time. At the heart of this conflict, a group of mercenaries, wrongly accused of crimes against the Lion of Alahan, is being hunted down. Convinced that they are in the right, and intent on fighting their enemies to the bitter end, they will set forth on an epic adventure where they will discover dark secrets. A path strewn with obstacles and many unfriendly characters awaits them. Go into battle and fight for your life! Your actions will determine the destiny of Aarklash…

Inspired by the Confrontation figurines universe, Aarklash: Legacy is a tactical adventure game. The player will find himself at the heart of the intrigue, controlling a group of 4 characters and leading them into battle across the lands of Alahan, Acheron, and the Behemoth. Final victory for the mercenaries is gained by the use of a wide range of powers which are enhanced through looting items and managed via skills trees which can be reset at will. Interaction between the heroes is also important and real bonds will be created between them as the game progress. Both fun and action await you in Aarklash: Legacy!

Key features:
  • Take part in an epic campaign, mixing adventure and tactical combat, following a rich storyline that will transport you into the fantasy world of Aarklash.
  • Thanks to the active pause system, choose the best tactics to succeed in battle.
  • At any time in the game, dissolve your team and then recombine it by choosing 4 characters from the available 8.
  • Through numerous and intense battles, make your heroes work together using group skills.
  • A skill tree will allow you to change the skills of each of your characters. Find the best combinations to take full advantage of the possibilities of your group as a whole.
  • Take on enemies and various organized groups, who also have their own skills!
  • Loot objects from your enemies and progress your group throughout the game.

I highly recommend this!

From start to finish the combat is very engaging and has a great level of difficulty in terms of challenge and balancing from normal to hard difficulties.
There is a good range of different combinations with party members and talent trees so don't get too distracted by the equipment load out which is not as extensive as other RPG's, this game is honestly just very solid gameplay wise.
The visuals are lovely, there is a decent single player story to go through and then throw in a bunch of hidden areas with some puzzle sections and you may experience one of the more satisfying games in a while!

I also recommend checking out a YouTube channel by Force Strategy Gaming for a nice overview of the game in action.

Great game. I give it 8/10.


-Puzzles to unlock goodies on about every level
-Awesome puzzles to complete storyline
-Good storyline
-Combat is intriguing and makes you think--must be very strategic.
-The number of companions that you can control and deck out with gear
-Pausing the game to plan out strategies
-Talent trees to cutomize for each companion; it adds a deeper level of gameplay
-Decent graphics


-Game has some bugs--sometimes the abilities for a companion will not show up. Or, when you click on a companion, another companion's abilities show up. When this happens, you have to restart the game to fix.
...So, because of this, you need to remember to save the game after every battle!!
-Gear is simplistic--it doesn't seem to have gear specific to any one character, it doesnt change the look of your character, and it does not change or add abilities to any character. Basically. gear just adds passive stats.
-No end game. When you beat it, that's it. No unlocking of ubber mode, or anything, to find better gear for your characters. So, you can't really do anything else with the characters you have leveled up and decked out...not even restart and play the game again with your decked out characters.

Pro or Con?

-Easy to cheat to get gear. Just stand in front of a treasure box before you open it and save. If you don't like what you get, just load that save point and try again. You can do this when creating loot, too.
-Right before you beat the game, the storyline takes a drastic turn and ends, leaving you hanging.

What I would like to see in DLC or part 2 if they choose to make it, which devs should:

-Instead of still pausing, make it to where everything is in slowmo when you hit what is now the pause key.
-better gear
-some end game
-more challenges and hidden treasure
-more bosses

Tips if you decide to buy:

-Save Frequently
-Wendaroo is freaking awesome, so learn how to use her.
-Save before opening chests so you can reload last save if you don't like what you get.
-When creating loot, the last item is the item you will create.. it could've been my imagination, though, but it usually also had the last attribute of that item put into it too.
-Go for one target at first--usually the squishy magic type, like priests or mages. If you can't demolish it in 5 seconds, split your damage amongst other targets.
..usually I tried demolishing one fast. But when that didn't work, I usually split dmg across two targets in two seperate areas until one or the other was very low hp and then switched to full focus dmg on that one. This also helped me metigate inc damage better because I could see everything that was going on better so I knew who to heal and dispel and such.

This game is pretty cool, and would be perfect, but is lacking in a few minor details. The game mechanics are solid, the skill tree is pretty cool for each character, and you are not locked into the tree, can reset it for free. The combat is very much position based, adding a lot of possibilities to each fight, especially when you add in the skill trees. Want a healer that also damages units the heal passes through, well then choose that path down the skill tree. Pretty neat combinations and possibilities. The characters are interesting, and so far the story is pretty good, and somewhat original. The character Bio for each character is interesting, and hopefully the full story unlocks as the game is played.

It has a few rough edges. I don't like the map overview, it seems unfinished, static, and dead. Finished a map, and really had no idea where to go, or for that matter what i was supposed to be doing, as I have not found a quest log either (don't think it exists?). After beating the boss, and looking at the map a while, I finally chose to wander back towards the start of the map. After a short time it did finally trigger a cut scene, and spared me the long walk back, but it just seemed a little rough around the edges. It also hates the steam overlay on my computer, everytime I hit tab it pops open the overlay. While chatting with friends, the text lags horribly. So might want to turn it off.

None of this really detracts from the game in anyway. Having a lot of fun with this so far. I would have to give it 8/10 so far.

If i told you i know of an RPG that is not open world, has minimal customization, no quests page, no point distribution, and a limited skill tree would you be intrested? If you said no then you may be missing out one of the best tactical RPGs of the last couple of years. Aaklash Legacy is abut one thing and one thing only, combat. You can set it up as you like(Pause anytime, or RTS), but in order to survive you will have to plan every encounter perfectly becasue the game is brutal even on normal difficulty. What a huge gamble by Cyandie stuidos to basically strip away what you think an RPG NEEDS to be successfull and focusing their time on perfecting a rewarding battle system.

Rewarding balanced Tactical combat
Simple and Easy UI
8 unique chacters
Enviroments are common but looks good
Reset skill points anytime
Inventory system

Too much filler combat and puzzles
Bosses are very easy
Some charcters not having any heal or shield make them difficult to use
Voice acting and writing can be hit or miss
Limit of 4 skills per charcter

Aarklash: Legacy is a fun game that can be challenging without being frustrating. Contrary to what some other reviewers mention the puzzles aren't that hard, though some do require some thinking. I never had to check online for solutions. But they do slow the gameplay down a bunch during Act2 and the later parts of Act 3 (there are 3 acts total). The combat is the true star of this game, If you liked the tactical aspects of combat in games like Baldur's Gate and Dragon Age: Origins, you'll have lots of fun figuring out how to approach the fights in this game.
Worth a buy, but maybe not at full price. Wait for a special. I bought it during the winter sale at $12.99 and found it to be a good value at that price.
