It's hard to play a game over 100 hours and then not recommend it. And yet, I can't. I wan't to - but I can't.

You've heard the saying that 'the sum is greater than the parts'; in this game, the parts are greater than the sum. There is such a good game here waiting to 'happen'. Unfortunately, the overall game design is flawed.

Specifically, the size of the 'shards' and the mechanics of the shards hurt the overall game. Because of this, you won't even use most of the best units/buildings/etc. In essence, you've got all this outstanding content that never comes into play bacause of the mechanics of the 'meta-game'.

-Bought this when feeling nostalgic about Master of Magic / HoMM. I also like CiV and slower, turn-based games sometimes.
-More complex building options than HoMM and in some aspects MoM.. More specifically the City Build menu can be overwhelming to look at for the first time. I particularly enjoyed this aspect of the game - its complexity left me wanting more and more so I would restart a game after losing to tweak the build and see what works best.
-The heroes can be viewed as simple/straightforward - 4 classes. Each time you level you put one point into one skill (out of three offerred).
-Spells are just similar to Heroes of Might & Magic. Build the 4th tower to get the best spells.. except there is a different building for each magic type - there are 6 magic types (I think?) at least as far as buildings / main spells go.
-More complex gameplay & darker theme than Heroes of Might & Magic
-Can't wait to play multiplayer!

Even though the "battle for a shard" is a lot of fun, it gets boring and repetitive after a while. The campaign is a sequence of maps (or shards) you have to win in order to meet all other masters. But the game is fun as long as the player wants to play it and can be recommended to anybody who likes games similar to HoM&M.

It took me 248 hours to end the campaign - and I chose the quickest way to finish.

If you like to finish your games - beware of the necessary time investment!

The game runs very unstable (release 1.4.5) - during my playthrough I had over 100 crashes to the desktop (seems evenly distributed between "Invalid Pointer Operation" and "Access violation...").
The game might run smoothly for 5 hours or crash 5 times in 30 minutes.

Broken to all hell on Linux. Doesn't launch on most platforms, huge graphical problems with nvidia drivers, and when it does start by navigating to and directly launching the game, it's so hard to see anything that it is unplayable.

Needs to be fixed.

nice tactical system but too long, too slow, too repetitive . On harder than normal it's too hard if you don't do it the only right way after a while in. Prepare to get stuck and owned making it slower and slower. AI hired guards don't scale with you. Item repair also ridiculous. loads of crashes still after 1 year and a half of patching and randomness.

The idea is interesting but the implementation is lacking. Highly random starting positions can vary the difficulty from "cakewalk" to "impossible," and strategy games should be decided more by your decisions than by randomness. Hero units drive the game, so if your starting area is good, you steamroll the map; if not, you may be able to grind through, provided the enemy hero did not get a steamroll start that lets it one-shot your troops and two-shot your hero. "First OP hero wins" is not an interesting strategy dynamic.

Before each fight, the game evaluates your forces versus your enemies and gives you a difficulty estimate from "no casualties" to "no chance." Whatever math is being done does not compare the units' strengths and weaknesses. You will regularly find impossible "easy" fights and "run away!" fights you can win without taking damage. Between this and the highly random elements, you can see why so many places on the forums advocate save scumming.

I encountered fewer crash bugs than other reviewers did.

The games looks good. Unfortunately I get a distorted screen and despite my best efforts cannot seem to correct it. Upon checking out the forums, I've noticed that the problem appears to be with Nvidia. It would have been nice if the store stated that there might be incompatibilities with Nvidia graphics. Another things that bothers me is this is not a true linux port. It's running on wine-which wouldn't bother me, if I could actually play the game. Please correct these issues. I do not like giving negative reviews. The game looks like a great game with a lot of potential and I would really want to give it a positive review.

I do not recommend this game until they sort out some of the bugs.

I really enjoy it as a strategy game. Many choices, like which shards you go after, greatly affect how things go for you. I played the other Eador game and loved it, this one seems better but the different controls took me a bit to get used to. The AI can be very predictable, this is good at times but also can be very bad when things are going against you because there is little chance to fool it or evade it, it pretty much hits you as hard as it can at all times so most should start on the easiest setting. Even if not the greatest it's a steal for the price.

I enjoyed this game for around a week or two before I just didn't have time for it. I think, if I played Eador when I was younger, I would have had 100s of hours spent playing it. It seems like the kind of single-player game that manages to reward you for putting a lot of time into it, which is rare.

Surprisingly fun turn based fantasy game. Basically you play through 'shards' each turn, building up an army and eventually conquering each shard, which then unlocks bonuses for the next shard. While this game isnt too challenging, it is very fun to play here and there as you conquer more. Similar to Heroes of Might and Magic but with new mechanics.

The key problem with this game is for the first 40 turns of play you only have 1 unit; you have to throw that unit at every threat you see and the threats are all on pretty close to level footing with that unit if not stronger. Then if you survive those 40 turns you just end up stomping everything with no difficulty at all.

Also the equipment durability system ruins the otherwise decent Scout/Archer class Hero

Eador: Masters of the Broken Game. This game could be wonderful. It is the best Turn-Based Strategy I've ever played, and it is broken beyond belief. I'm currently nearing 70 hours into the campaign, and I've had to relaunch the game from crash over 150 times.

That in mind, the game is surprising in its depth of world, story, and dialogue. It incorporates the karma alignment options of games like Fable and Mass Effect, with actions made affecting the general disposition of everyone when they talk to you. Based on their appraisal of you, the dialogue changes entirely. If they like you, they may be willing to divulge information, or even give you a boost forward in the campaign. If they dislike you, they'll be curt, aggressive, and might in fact attack your home world. The karma system is much deeper and more involved than this, and is one of the flavors swirling in the mix that made me fight through the headaches of constant bugs.

Fighting is tough. The entire game is incredibly difficult. There are a large number of ways to beat the game (ten?), and each feels different than the others. Each ending makes you fight for it, and while fighting for it, the possibility for another way out crops up.

Managing the empire on each shard of the broken world is tough, and requires capitalization of what you have available. Once I felt comfortable and confident in my skills, I raised the difficulty to the maximum, which was a nice ego check: while I did still finish the shard, it was tooth and nail.

Bottom line for this game: if you're a fan of TBS, get this game. The developers have stayed on it consistently, improving the game since its ill-advised release. Even given how long it has been since the game was released, it feels like it's still in Beta release. It's a fantastic game that absorbed a large amount of time, and likely will continue to do so, but I doubt most people would be willing to fight through all the effort it has taken to get to this point in the story.

A decent turn-based strategy game with RPG elements. If you like games like Heroes of might and Magic, and Kings Bounty, this would definitely be a game to consider.

PROS
Does what you would expect of the core elements very well.
A lot of variety; units, weapons, tactics, etc.
A lot of tactical debth.


CONS
Not for everyone, the lack of pace can be frustrating for some.
There is a bit of a learning curve, especially for managing your city.
AI balancing, it does cheat.

If you like this type of games, and are a completionist to boot, you will be in for a long experience. The nature of progression makes your heroes start over each map/realm. And extensive possibilities of exploring provinces under your control makes it hard for you to decide weather to explore the land you have, or conquer more. And the AI tends to act in a Zerglike manner on the map if you dilly-dally too long. That being said, if you like games mentioned above there is a lot of hours of fun to get here.

Easily one of the funnest games I have played, that being said, I would not recommend you buy unless you have a god tier computer. On my normal computer, this game does not work it crashes all the time, I recentlly built a very nice computer and it runs as smooth as a lampshade made of fresh baby skin. Also the issue with the crashes and errors I got on my other two computers (ones a laptop) will not be adressed as none of my emails or error reports ever got a reply. Maybe the company is not the best at pr. This game is amazing nonetheless, I enjoy the strategy and it is not insanely easy as some others, so long as you dont select skilled or anything below you will have very nice combat that requires actuall planning and thinking, story line was pretty awesome too. Only issue I have had is that you need a strong computer to play it, and the lack of help or support from the creators, but I get that from ea and almost every company too. Another cool thing so far as gameplay goes is that you can use one method to win most battles, for example necromancy, however these battles can be slugfests, and you may end up losing, where you essentially trade blows until one of you manages to get the upperhand and you will end up taking days of back and forth battling to take or lose the shard, when if you just adapt you strategy and maybe add a commander with long range units in the back and strong defense with low attack to shield the path of incoming land units you could maybe have won the shard or faster if you win anyways. There are flying units too, the strategy is quite varied, really an awesome game.

You want to play turn-based combat and simultaneously building up your empire while leveling every single unit in your army up? You, dear Sir, have quite an interesting taste. And found a jewel.

The story itself is engaging while you conquer the whole universe and face from humans to gods everything you might think of. The shards (worlds) itself are then conquered by your hero and his armies, who fight your battles in turn-based combats. All the shards then allow for more units, equipments, buildings and boosts for the next shard to fall under your rule.

The graphical presentation might not appeal to anyone, but it is atmospherical and suits the game and gameplay well enough. A lot of peopel are reporting technical issues with the game, however I have never encountered such problems. If this bothers you, I recommend checking other reviews in more detail.

7/10 for breaking under it's own size from time to time and the technical issues a lot of peopel might have (This is hard to factor in, though, because if you do have such issues, one would very likely give it a 0, as in did not deliver).
