Check out the new single player campaign with 25+ hours of gameplay, in which nearly all races are playable – Pact, Clan, Shaikan…

The Story

Zazhut is free, and his wrath now descends upon Eo. The Shaikan are hopelessly outnumbered – but you, an Elder of the Shaikan, are not willing to give up hope. Joined by companions old and new, you head out towards the Realm of the Gods, for only they seem able to oppose Zazhut's power.


However, the Gods play a game of their own, and don't seem to be inclined to help you... The fate of Eo now rests within your hands; face the demons of the past, collect information about Zazhut and banish evil from this world, once and for all. Much has changed in time... are your foes as dangerous and your friends as faithful as they used to be?

A fine successor, good campaign (although some bugs - these can all be resolved just by switching maps)

No clue about mutliplayer, didn't even try it, was never any good, just play with hamachi if you want it to work I guess

This game needs a patch or two before I'd consider it playable. It had bugs:

  • It BSOD'd after about an hour, and I'venever seen a game do that on this computer.
  • My units would regularly stop responding to mouse clicks until I toggled the Inventory/Quest/Map panel
  • On occasion, only a subset of units in a group would respond - I'd have to de-select and re-select the group to get it to work

...and it had UI/design issues. I fully acknowledge that some of these could simply be due to unfamiliarity with the game
  • Unit stats were unavailable. Compare this with Warcraft or Starcraft, where selecting a unit shows all of their stats
  • I have no idea how skills work. Every once in a while I would see them refreshing from a cooldown, but most of the time they simply sat there and wouldn't respond to clicks. They would on occasion appear beneath my heroes, but not always. I'm not sure what controlled their display, but with no UI cues it just felt glitchy.
  • The tutorials are videos, rather than interactive. You can't blaze through them at your own pace or view a message log if you missed an important item.
  • There's no Help to speak of in game. You need to open up the manual in a separate window, rather than simply going to Options->Keys, like most games.

I've played a lot of RTSs, and basically, the entire UX of SpellForce rubbed me the wrong way.

i got this off a bundle and played it for the cards. before i noticed i already had racked up several hours of play.

rather than our sily skirmishes where we start off with resources and move on slowly, this game lets you play the way you want to(to a certain extent, of course). rpg mechanics that let you build your heroes up to your liking with different active and passive abilities, quests and equipment. add to that some nice rts elements(hate it or love it :P) and you get a rather enjoyable game. i recommend it.

Well, I've always been more or less a fan of Spellforce games. Granted the first one was vastly superior to the 2nd one, Spellforce 2 still had some good things going for it. However... this "expansion"... yeah stay away from it. It's horrible build, has "quests" that barely work. It wouldn't be a bad thing if you could skip the majority of these quests but most of them are main storyline quests which do hinder your progression. The only redeeming quality is the Freeform Game which is also horribly bugged in some levels.

What more can I say? It's a badly made expansion and I do hope that the devs who worked on this never touch another piece of software again. But that seems to be wishfull thinking since the rumor is that Spellforce 3 is already being made. At least I know which game to avoid in the near future. A real shame the Spellforce series dies here because of this "expansion" for me.

This is a honist review if you call it that from my play though of the game I enjoyed it even with the bugs granted some where almost game breaking but I would say its a pin shot better than Faith in Destiny the campain will test you even on easy and the Free Mode is also worth a go granted with freinds its all the more fun

aside from the bugs that the patch did not fix I would say its a nice game but if you are the type of player who wants a game that does not have a tendancy to explode in your face or cause a restart of several hours as you did not save then its not for you.

This very much feels like a rushed beta-version at best. They forgot to put in the tutorial, which I don't mind (seeing as I own all of the Spellforce games before this), but for anyone new to the series this could be a huge issue. The game is littered with a relatively boring story-line that involves cut-scenes (multiple minutes at times) that one can't skip. To be fair, the story might be good, but the video at the very beginning did not work for me, which is just one of the many bugs that make the game-play a frustrating experience. I am probably still going to finish it (if the game lets me), but I would strongly discourage buying this unless you are a die-hard fan of the previous games.

Bugs, bugs, bugs. Lacking a serious tutorial. There are so many things a new player to the series will not understand. I you haven't played the earlier versions, don't buy this game. Unless you enjoy spending time on youtube trying to find out what you are supposed to do; or writing and waiting for answers on the Steam forum. I think this was the worst money spent. I am tired of half-made games being put on Steam for developers to make a quick buck. MAKE YOUR GAME THEN SELL IT. You have been warned......

I love the mix of rpg and strategy elements. Graphics are slightly imporved and it runs much smoother than previous games. No new faction but there are new game modes. My main (and only) annoyance and I hope developers fix this, its the lack of save game in the skirmish modes. Its really annoying not being able to save your game. But once they fix that, Best game ever!!!

To be honest I've only played one skirmish map so far
and though the graphics look good and the mechanics
suited well enough so far as getting things done but the problem
is that the AI builds a HUGE force compared to what you will have time to build
no matter how diligently you keep tabs on your production.
Maybe there's some obscure plan to increase unit production
but I got totalled before I could field an army of more than 20.
Since rumor is that this game is considered a "done deal" I have
little hope this gets sorted out to make the RTS skirmish maps playable.
Maybe the campaign is good. I don't know. Might or mighht not bother playing it.

Multiplayer didn't allow me to host a game. My friend was able to host a game, but I was never able to connection due to a never ending "Establishing Connection..." message. I had high hopes for this game and was shot down immediately. Even though I got this on the humble bundle, I should've spent it on the first game of this series for the same price. The single player wasn't much, didn't get very far since I mainly like the online aspect of these types of games.

It is rare I see a game this completely broken. You will not survive past the first hour of play, guarenteed, even on easy.

Simpatiche le batutte e le numerose citazioni, ma a lungo andare alcuni livelli diventano particolarmente noiosi a causa di quest dove l'azione vera e propria scarseggia, inoltre numerosi bug non aiutano di certo. Rispetto al capito precedente è molto più incentarato sul gdr che sullo strategico puro in stile AoE.

Although Faith in Destiny, the previous (also chronologically) installment of Spellforce series, was slightly disappointing, Demons of the Past is an amazing game, especially for the fans of the Spellforce series.

Gameplay - RTS and RPG mix still exists. Although I always liked Spellforce 1 (platinum edition on Steam)'s RPG system (skill building, etc.) more, the RPG side of Demons of the Past is pretty great still. Many side quests and main quests give you many details about the story, making it long, good and rich. RTS, on the other hand, is really good - challenging, yet easy to do still. The system also makes it easier to use some of the skills, spells and other special abilities. Army often can even do it on their own. It may be a bit hard for the newcomers at the start, but not too hard.

Soundtrack - as always, soundtrack to this new part of the series is pretty good.

Voice acting - it has certainly improved from previous titles.

Bugs - there may be a couple, but nothing too big. They haven't really bothered me.

I haven't played multiplayer with DotP much yet, but previous titles were already a lot of fun. You can even play the campaign with someone cooperatively.

Overall - 4 out of 5. It brings a good end to Spellforce 2, similar to Dragon Storm, and perhaps equally dark to Shadow of the Phoenix. Although the engine is old, it was improved. It may have some bugs and/or a downside or two here and there, but it has been a very enjoyable game with a very good story and also a good to Spellforce 2.

Spellforce II: Demons of the Past is an old-looking game, both in graphics and gameplay. There is some kind of narrative value here, but will appeal only to faithful fans of the series.There’s a lot of content here, with a sprawling campaign and varied multiplayer modes, but ultimately it’s not worth the slog of what amounts mostly to tedious battles and glorified fetch quests. Despite this, the core gameplay is solid and the mash-up between RTS and RPG is a lot of fun. If you are a long time fan and follower of Spellforce 2, then I can imagine that Demons of the Past is right up your alley. You’ll easily understand the events surrounding the main storyline, and you will have been used to the nuances of properly playing the game. For everyone else, Demons of the past is a mediocre game that is not particularly memorable.Maybe SpellForce 3 will be a game that anyone will have to play, unfortunately Demons of the Past is for hardcore fans only.

Actually I am sitting on the fence a bit with this new Spellforce game. I've clocked a number of hours but haven't got a long way through as yet. But I'll give it a thumbs up merely because I think it will end up ok - vastly different to the number of thumbs down reviews here from people who have spent little time in the game and their issues sound more like technical or other problems rather then an actual "review" of the game itself.

Sure, it's got a few bugs, but I haven't seen a game release in ages that didn't have bugs first up - sometimes badly affecting even being able to play. It does have some other developer issues like the stealth mission in the Stepping Stones "My god what were they thinking!". This kind of mission doesn't suit this type of top down rpg/rts at all. And there are bugs where if you skip missions, do things in the wrong order or something, some weird things show up. But like all other games, the dev's do hear about these issues and I'm sure there's patches coming.

The game itself, well if you have ever played the other Spellforce games, it will be instantly recognisable. it's much the same gameplay. What they are doing here is finishing up the story of the entire series. Considering the series started a long time ago, I've forgotten most of the story anyway... but, certain things do spark a memory flash in my brain at times.

The game is reasonably priced, it's not an "A" title, so don't expect the latest graphics and latest engine, it's running on the old Spellforce 2 engine. So far it's reasonably enjoyable, although sometimes a little frustrating. Mainly because the game so far is pretty linear in format. Even though they have lots of side quests (so they say) they are really nothing and get swallowed up by the main quest ie: if you complete a section of the main quest line then bang! Those side quests you had are now irrelevant or unplayable because you moved on - literally - it shifts you to a different area in the game world.

I guess Spellforce has always been a bit like this - just wasn't expecting for it to hit me so hard in the face with it, like when it transports you off to the Stepping Stones and you are sitting there going "No, I need to level up and I wanted to visit the merchants and that side quest I was doing...oh...bugger".

But as I said, it's not an "A" title and it's price means it's most probably worth it, so give it a shot - whether you've played Spellforce before or not.
