"It's one of those "one more turn" games that has you up till sunrise. It's like Heroes of Might & Magic with infinite content."

Reviews

“It's indie roots show in the production values but it also has heart and provides both depth of gameplay and challenge I've not seen in more commercial products in ages. Eador: Genesis is both charming and rock hard with a fiendishly sharp sense of humor.”

Will you answer the call?

I recently purchased GTAV.... About a week later I purchased Eador: Genesis.

Now I don't play GTAV.

It's the blend of civilization and heroes of might and magic. I think this game might be the best of its genre. Don't forget to install the New Horizons mod. It's a free mod that adds lots and lots of new content, basically a free dlc.

Must say I've become a bit addicted to this simple turn based strategy game. The references to the HoMM series are certainly apt, as even on the easiest difficulties Eador can be somewhat unforgiving at times with its checkmate AI making a nuisance in every uncovered corner. The amount of content is basically unlimited, which would be normally be a frustration for a completist such as myself, but oddly it's become instead one of the game's attractions and now I look at Eador as an excellent drop in/drop out strategy game, one I could actually beat were I to 'drop in' for about 300 hours or so.

In addition to the skirmish style single player, Eador also offers a campaign mode consisting of 80 randomly generated 'scenarios', which apparently allows you to say you've 'beaten' the game should you be perserverent enough to successfully conquer 80 maps, any of which could take the better part of a day to complete. The gameplay and controls are solid, and although Eador can feel repetitive at times, it's no fault of the game's design but rather the frequent battles that often play out in familiar fashion. It's like a casual drop in strategy game that's been given a surprising sense of depth, and that in turn gives a satisfying weight to your daily bouts. Thumbs up.

This game is the video game version of crack.
It doesn't look that great and you wonder why people are doing it. You read the reviews, every one is saying how great it is, don't knock it 'till you try it they say. It's cheap and curiosity gets the better of you. You give it a try. Two weeks pass you have spent more time on it than you have complete major titles and you're still at the begining of the game. You find excuses to play, you keep saying 'just one more turn'. You start burning dinner, becoming later and later for work, missing appointments and you are seeing your family less and less.

Like me you have become an addict, living from shard to shard. Is there help for this? I don't know.

Quite frankly I don't want to know

This is an early review, i haven't played it much. But from what I have seen it was exactly what I was looking for, a classic Heroes of might and magic experience with a twist.
