""Stand-alone expansion" to Fallen Enchantress. It's really the same game with added content. Buy this one and not the base game! Really good civ game."

About This Game

The Fallen Enchantress seeks to destroy the civilizations that have risen from the ashes of the Cataclysm. Fortunately, your fame has spread and great heroes have been drawn to your banner. With your new champions, you will confront new horrors like liches, brood hunters, banshees, and the dreaded hergon.

Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes is the new standalone expansion to Stardock’s turn-based, fantasy strategy game. Players will forge a new empire in a world sundered by powerful magic, fight against terrible creatures, complete quests and rediscover lost secrets in their bid to rule the world of Elemental.

Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes is a standalone expansion. No prior games are required to play.

Key Features


  • Gain Champions Through Fame: Champions are no longer simply found, instead, they seek you out based on the amount of Fame your kingdom has generated. And not all of these legendary heroes were Men or Fallen…
  • New Leveling System: Your sovereign and champions now evolve through a skill tree that visually allows you to plan what kind of hero you want him or her to be. Make your mage into a powerful Necromancer, or train your Assassin in special attacks that bleed the life from your enemies.
  • Updated Tactical Battles: Battles are now more intense with additional special skills, combat mechanics, spells and new maps.
  • New Monsters: The legendary heroes didn’t reach our lands alone. The events of the Fallen Enchantress have raised the dead and caused forgotten creatures to return to the surface of the world.
  • More Magic: New spells like ‘Lightning Form’ and ‘Raise Skeletal Horde’ add new options and dangers to battle.
  • Larger Maps: A new gigantic sized map delivers truly epic games.
  • Updated Graphics Engine: An improved graphics engine delivers stunning new visuals while improving performance on older machines.
  • And much, much more!

Not impressed. This game hits you from the start with unwanted hassle. You must create an additional user account on the developers servers to play the game. I don't want that. If a game is on Steam, it shouldn't need anything extra. No additional DRM or more accounts or anything. They want you to have an account so they can sell you tiny-expansions, which are annoyingly advertised in-game.

Then you start the game and find out it is unbalanced in a dozen ways.I have gone through the motions of playing the game, and It really just isn't fun. Maybe it's because I have played dozens of games like it (that are better or more interesting).
The designers created a complicated lore/item system, but forgot to make the game mechanic interesting.

I bought this on a steam sale. Still disappointed that I spent money on it. Still annoyed about having to create an extra account that I get emails for. Still annoyed at the publisher Stardock software.

4/10. If I was on a hypothetical deserted island and this was my only game.. I would play it. I guess.

Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes is the most played game I own in my library. The game is beyond fun, it is everything a civilization builder should be and more. The freedom to customize your kingdom from citys, to commanders (heroes) and army units is above and beyond anything I've seen in the gendre. But were the game truly shines is it's hud system. The hud gives you at a glance all the pertinent information you require in an unobtrusive way. The game is beyond fantastic and I highly recomend it to everyone who wanted to rule a fantasy kingdom.

Civilization meets Heroes of Might and Magic. A decent 4x game with an indepth combat/hero system and the ability to make your own units. The cell shaded art style will be loved by some and hated by others. No multiplayer but still a pretty cool world filled with enough magical creatures and stuff for at least a few playthroughs. There is no multiplayer, just a freeplay/sandbox mode and two scenarios.

This game is pretty good, just for a while. Combination of Heroes of might&magic and Civilization is really great idea and works. In my opinion this game doesn't offer you many options for tactics, just go and crush everything on your way, and it gets unentertaining after few wins, you do not even have to bother about your cities or resources, you can win just like nothing with one army running around looting and getting xp. I played just for 2 factions and made 2 wins - by conquest and completing master quest, and there is no more this game can give me, but few more DLC's which are really overcharged. I'd like it give it another chance, maybe later.

Good rating, still doesn't worth this price.

7/10

A 4x game that is part Civ 4, part Fire Emblem, extremely customizable and probably the most engrossing strategy game I've played in years. Definitely a solid buy.
