“Legends of Eisenwald is a tactical RPG that gets fast turn-based tactical combat right.”
73 – IGN

“The combat system of the game is very different from what the genre normally offers, and there are moments when its bloody results and focus on placement and movement makes it feel revolutionary.”
80 – Softpedia

“Legends of Eisenwald is both a unique and quality game in a sea of clones, rehashes, and titles that disappoint.”

About This Game

Legends of Eisenwald is an adventure game with tactical battles, RPG and strategy elements. Take the lead of a small feudal army and try to defend your right to survive in this ruthless medieval world.

The mysterious lands of old Germany are waiting for you - it's a land where the superstitions of the time have come to life. This isn’t a fantasy game. There are no elves or dragons here. There are only people - and their passions, sins and fears that often take a tangible form. Which path will you choose? Live according to your conscience? Or live by power and might? Or will you live by justice? And what is your justice, really?

Game features

  • A unique and dynamic combat system - each move is also an attack
  • The ability to individually equip *each* fighter in your army
  • A large selection of weapons, spells and abilities, including the option to use mounted units
  • Diverse upgrade trees, and each unit level up provides cosmetic changes
  • An intriguing non-linear story
  • A distinctive game world without common fantasy cliches
  • Over 50 hours of gameplay within the game. A main campaign consisting of eight chapters plus two additional scenarios.
  • A beautiful symphonic soundtrack in a medieval style
  • An accompanying Scenario Editor with the full set of developer tools

French version is missing some of the descriptions translation. They will be added in a few days.

Great game. Difficult to stop playing. Here and there running through the map over and over again becomes a bit tedious, but nevertheless one keeps playing. There are some minor glitches, but not so much as it would keep you from playing. Maybe it's too short, and I doubt the replayability value. The combat system is nice, whatever other people may say in their comments. To say the truth I hate RTS-gaming and that may be one of the reasons I like this "old school" gameplay a lot. In hindsight one migth say that the storyline is too straightforward, there are clearly no alternative outcomes. But what do you want from an indie game. For its price it's value for money.

Don't write many reviews, but if it helps the dev team along then here goes. Being a mature gamer..ahem...I have played many RTS/RPG games and as always there is the good and the bad. With Legends, I find the path not as sandboxy as I would have liked from the setting. The castle points to build an army can be frustrating at times. As a reenactor I love the realism in the weapons and the armour, but still think the combat system is to basic....I dont want to attack I want to wait for AI to attack me so i want to create shield walls and pike hedgehogs.
However, it is quite fun although you are sometimes at a loss with quests if you didn't read the text.....
So in short...good start...gives us some sandboxy type of place.....allow a little bit more tactics in battle phase, and you might be onto something bigger and better.

This is the first and only Early Access game I have backed so far, but it really has left me with a high standard mark that I doubt will be met by all the other projects I back in the future.

The game is amazing, people wouldn't think such a feat could be done with as little funding as this project had. The battlefield in this game offers a variety that might be overlooked at first glance, but it's that what makes it much better than HoMM or King's Bounty, at least in my eyes.

The battles in the games previously mentioned tend to become dull and repetitive after a while, and I grow tired of the game and don't touch it for a long while. But in the case of this game, the battles are always quick-paced and focused. You can't just fiddle around wasting turns, you have to move and so does your opponent. Planning before the battle is as important as the fight itself.

And that's just talking about how the fights go. The music is simply wonderful and the art is very well-polished. Still, it's a turn-based combat game, so it's a niche game on its own, but for a cautious turn-based player such as myself, this game has delivered much more than it promised.

Legends of Eisenwald is in my opinion one of the best games that came through greenlight. The story is good and exciting. While playing you will have many decisions to make, all of which make the story evolve in different directions. The graphics are also well done, and there are a lot of nice side stories which come with beautiful pictures which you can read in a tavern. This gives the game a good flair. The combat system has a balanced and demanding design. I always looked forward to the next battle, because after I won a fight, my knight can level up again.

A mix of King's Bounty and Disciples set in (more or less) medieval Germany.

The first impression can be somewhat off-putting, because the graphics and animations look simple and feel outdated for at least 5 years. Nevertheless, once you get past it and get into your first quests, the engine doesn't really matter anymore. After the tutorial map the story picks up quickly and the first full size campaign map is very entertaining.

If you enjoyed Disciples, HOMM or King's Bounty, and you don't mind simple graphics, I would definitely recommend this game.

Bonus points for including an excellent Belarusian translation!
