“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.

This game is everything you ever wanted out of Heroes and Might & Magic, and then some. Plus the story is fantastic. I'm not even half-way through and I've already experienced three Shyamalan-type plot twists.

Every dedicated gamer will understand this feeling- Your getting bored, you've played too many games recently and none of them seem to provide that deep gaming feeling of excitement, achievement and cheerful contentment and satisfaction that games provided you with in the past. Then along comes a game that reinvigorates you all over again, makes you sit up excitedly, totaly engages you in it's world , story and characters, and fully restores your faith in gaming as the ultimate escapism.

Legends of Eisenwald is that game.

After many hours of play the one thing that stood out for me was the writing, it's excellent. The low fantasy type story reeled me in and held me in it's grasp right from the beggining. Many games stories are judged in the first few hours of play so it's critical the player is kept interested. How many games have tried and failed at this test in the past ?, hundreds?. LoE, however, has no such worries. Without revealing too much on the story, as others have done in previous reviews below, it's safe to say that LoE is an excellent and believable knight errant type story set in medieval Germany. No voice acting opens the players imagination more and i honestly feel it's the best writing in a game i've had the pleasure to read for a long long time, it's the games crowning achievement .

The turn based combat , character leveling up, game economy, items etc is deep and addictive. You can spend a long time purchasing the right armour, weapons, medallions, rings and potions etc and just as much time balancing it all between your team of soldiers, archers, monks and healers to ensure success in battle.

I cannot add more than others have already said about this game other than it's one of the best RPG's i've played in a while. It's totally engrossing, a diamond in the rough, a gem of a game i sincerely recommend to the discerning gamer.

Another positive is the effort made by the developer to engage the players to guarantee an enjoyable experience. I don't remember seeing a problem that wasn't fixed speedily or a forum post or comment that wasn't replied to by the developer. The input from Aterdux from day one of development right up to now has been nothing short of tremendous.

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.
