About This 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!

This is definitely one of those diamonds in the rough kind of games. The strategic gameplay is amazing. Timing, targeting, and positioning is very important.

First the bad. There are definitely some aspects of this game that I wouldn't recommend. The storyline is decent, kinda your very overdone basic story though. Voice acting doesn't always match the dialoge text. The gear you get in the game is just RNG crap. 95% of the time you will get items that do not have the specific stats you want.

The good. Graphics are well done. The pause/assign gameplay is like Dragon Age, except the fact it is done wonderfully and is pretty much required to do well. The skills and skill tree are very unique, making each character add an interesting element to the game. You must read and understand your enemies to know which to target, and which you can counter.

Excellent game. Maybe not a box office hit, but it is unique and inspiring. Makes you wish there was a sequel, or another game more like it.

Once Pillars of Eternity came out, I craved a Real-Time-With-Pause (RTWP) game that was all about going fight to fight, instead of taking long breaks for story. This game really delivers just that.

Don't buy it for the story, but it for the combat and gameplay. Play the demo first to make sure you like it.

A good opener to a series that might never get a sequel. Too many puzzles and an ending begging for a continution. It was fun for what it was though, a RPG/RTS hybrid with real-time with pause combat. Worth buying on sale.

A really solid tactical RPG experience. Good soundtrack, good combat and levelling system. Very good cast of playable characters. The overall story arc is a little slow but the games positives well outweigh the negatives. Would love to see a sequel.

First off: This game misses a tag. PUZZLE GAME!

You run into puzzles everywhere (They aren't too hard for me thankfully) and even some battles are small puzzles in which you have to read enemies abilities and then deduct the best order to kill them. Often it's something like raiser-healer-debuffer-bufffer-warriors and if you kill enemies in the wrong order they're raised or healed.

Also, putting major spoilers in the load screen just before you reach that point in the story is not apprechiated by me. Not at all. Seriously. That's one of the silliest things I ever saw in a game so far.

Otherwise the game is quite decent, skills are adequate, battles are fairly fast and furious, the game looks nice and runs smooth. No errors but I wouldn't expect those in a game released more then 2 years ago.

There are some downsides to the game as well, equipment for one is abysmal with everyone being able to equip earrings, a ring, a relic and a necklace. All of those are randomly generated. Weapons and armor? Nah. Potions? Nuh uh. Anything but the four afore mentioned items? Nup.

Would I recommand the game?

Yep. The game could have been better but it's quite a lot fun to play and that's what counts and makes me forgiving of little loot vareity, sillyness and even of PUZZLES.

P.s. I wonder why this game has the rpg tag. I haven't been able to make a single choice in 8 hours that affected anything storywise. The game is entirely linear with smalls maps you can explore a little.
