“[While at the Australian EB Expo] Nothing even came close to the level of quality of Infinity Wars. It almost shouldn't have been in the same area; it should have been in an open space, where everybody was guaranteed to walk by. The game deserved that level of foot traffic.”

To give a little perspective on my opinion, here's a quick brief on me. I come from a game design background, having gone to an art school for it. I played TCGs heavily for a period and followed competitive play of friends, which led to a big interest of card game R&D. I also had a half decade of national-level competitive fighting game play that defined my love for the mental aspect of any competitive game.

With those things in mind, I love games that introduce new concepts into a genre and take great care in implementing them well. To my great pleasure, this is exactly what Infinity Wars has accomplished.

Taking full advantage of the digital format of the game, Infinity Wars has incorporated a few huge advantages over the average card game:
1. Simultaneous turns.
2. Deck commanders.
3. Animated card art.
4. A non-exploitative Free-To-Play business model.

Simultaneous turns is my personal favorite addition into the genre that really makes a massive change in the dynamics of a turn. It serves two major purposes. First, it reduces down time while waiting for your opponent to play through their turn, which keeps both players a lot more active while playing and speeds up games to a degree. Second, it enforces a major element of prediction over reaction. What your opponent may play and how you want to play spells or move/rearrange your creatures is always an important part of the flow of battle and ultimately who wins. In addition, there is an initiative that swaps between players each turn that allows one player's spells and attacks to resolve first. Simply put, this one feature puts Infinity Wars on a completely new level compared to all other card games, and I absolutely love it.

Commanders also serve two important purposes. First, the faction of each commander determines what cards you're able to place within that deck. Having 3 different factions in command gives you a lot of options, whereas three of the same faction gives you access to all tiers of cards within that faction. Second, the commanders are simply extra playable cards from the same list of cards you would build the deck from, yet they exist outside of the limitations of the deck. For example, setting up a deck with commanders that cost 1, 2, and 4 cost cards, when you know your deck has a majority of 3 cost cards gives you a huge advantage in the reliability of your first few turns. It would allow you to simply play your command creatures if you didn't have anything better in your hand, helping to you overcome the inherent randomness of card games. Command creatures also count as being in play, allowing you to use character abilities from the command zone, yet also being slightly at risk to creature removal in the process. Interestingly, the command setup often broadcasts what to expect from the opponent, so that both players understand what they're roughly up against. It's simply a wonderful concept all around.

A major marketing point for the game itself is the animated card art. Now, having come from an art school, I can tell you that a lot of the early card animations were very rough. Flash-esque element manipulation, simple things like colors glowing in and out, etc. With each consecutive set, though, the quality of art and animation has simply skyrocketed. The next set's card previews left me in awe and craving more. And despite a tremendous amount of time and effort going into each card's art, they don't skimp on the amount of content that each set delivers. That, to me, is truly impressive, especially considering the they're such a small team.

And finally we reach their business model. Now, I have to admit I really dislike what the free to play model has become in the current gaming climate. It often encourages a lot of exploitation of the player, detracting from their fun as much as possible without actively pushing away players, in order to influence addictive spending. Much to my relief, Lightmare has not only eliminated the biggest pitfalls of free to play design (the pay-to-win stuff), but also actively rewards free players by allowing cards purchased with the in-game currency to be tradeable with others. They also have a rudimentary master and apprentice system that rewards both players with free cards for playing together. It even incorporates a very rewarding draft mode that allows players who manage good runs to get high rarity free cards and even potentially receive their whole draft deck for free.

The only reason the game doesn't receive a 10/10 is that the game is still fairly new, and has a number of planned updates that are absolutely necessary to eliminate a lot of bugs, open it to more playable platforms, and expand on the overall longevity of the game. As those are incorporated, I can confidently say that the game will grow to be be the best possible card game I can imagine.

Thanks for reading along, and I hope you join us all in the wonderful experience it offers.

Been playing Magic The Gathering for a long time. If you, like me, love strategic fantasy card games, you will probably spend hours playing this fun game too.

The gameplay, balanced factions, and tutorials are all there and high quality, and this game is FREE!. You can pick from the undead type faction, the beasties, the mechs, the angels, the demons, the defenders, the fast attack warriors, and the nuker wizards types (not their 'in game' names). There are also some interesting choices everyone can use from a large pool of neutral cards too. The factions are creatively themed, like the defenders have a water samurai vibe going.

It really gets interesting because you can combine up to 3 factions in any one deck.

This game is full of mechanics that add to the player's satisfaction. For example, when you make a deck, you pick 3 commanders that can be any creature card and you start the game with those 3 cards in play, in a designated area.

So your awesome 3 best legendary creaturecards that you got lucky and drew from booster decks? Yeah, you start every game with those.

And as if satisfying deep strategic choices are not enough, the developers added very impressive artwork for each card! Honestly I enjoy all the beautiful artwork almost as much as the gameplay.
And if unique fantasy artwork isn't enough, the artwork is also animated!

You unlock plenty of cards playing through the campaign, which includes 8 missions for each faction. Also quests unlock you cards. Wins and losses generate you in game points which can buy boosters too. Also playing games gives you experience, and at the time of writing this I think you get a booster for every level you gain. So it does not feel as griindy as say, Hearthstone.

I would recommend this game even if it costed money. But is doesn't. So pick it up and go have fun.

So much more interesting gameplay than Blizzard's Hearthstone. You can actually use some strategy and tactics while in battle insetad of just rolling the dice on whos got better draw like it was in the other game where first turns draws dictated the fate of boring, childlish battle with no spin and tactics to it whatsoever. Im not a hardcore card gamer but playing this after hearthstone is awesome. You get more controll over the battle, more choices, more options to do with cards in yoru hand insetad of simple "use or hold and see what happens".

I definitely recommend you to try it out. And do whole tutorial to see the depth of the game :) Awesome!

One of the best strategy games I've ever played. This TCG (Trading Card Game) has 7 different factions + 2 other factions made just for fun to play with (not usable in ranking). All cards are animated, and some animations are simply gorgeus...
The battle field is also animated. Daily log-in reward + daily 3games played reward (no need to win to get them) of 1 card of any card, or if you are lucky you'l get a mini-set of multiple cards.
Very easy to learn. In-game economy it's just stable and the cards I find them with a very fair price (pleaze don't try to destroy it by you're egoism, remember that if the prices go up, it goes up for you also, keep it that way) like 1 rare card for 1 rare card.
Lots of riendly people also, including myself :D.
Just a good game that deserves at least a single try, if not more tryes.

A fun card game that any MtG fan will enjoy. Great artwork, faction choices, and animation make the game pleasing to look at as well. On top of all that, the game is free. Try it out and see for yourself.

pros: free-to-play, good tutorial (I recommend doing before you go to the campaign), hyped soundtrack, creatively animated card illustrations, animated UI & interface, windowed fullscreen option available, a lot of cards (all animated) with a ton of single player campaign missions & challenges (which rewards you with moar cards!1!!), you can construct as many custom decks (for free) as your heart desires with at least 9 different factions to choose from (but limited to 3 different factions per deck for it to be legal in multiplayer), gameplay allows two win conditions (reduce opponent health or morale to zero), gameplay allow ways to bluff & position. Also on the bottom right of the UI is an auction button (allows card draw & resource schemes) & at the bottom left is the undo button.

cons: the game requires you to create a login profile (why not just auto link with the steam account?), player vs player multiplayer modes has to be unlocked by completing single player challenges & leveling up your profile first (you need to be at least lvl 10 to play ranked constructed, although it's understandable due to experienced ranked opponents), few missing sound ques, the AI sometimes doesn't make the smartest decisions (& some campaign levels are trial&error), storyline is forgettable, when you close the chatbox during a multiplayer match there is no way of getting it back (& no way of reestablishing contact with previous opponents), ive experienced a few deck loading bugs

Overall, after playing for almost 2 decades of Magic: The Gathering & many other card games, Infinity Wars is by far the most compelling of all card games ive played. This is a must play for MTG, Hearthstone, Yu-gi-oh, etc. players - who long for a better card game that offers depth, easy to learn, customizable, streamlined online multiplayer ; but leaves out the pay-to-win BS, terrible UI & menu interfaces, & frustrating/inconvenient multiplayer experience.

Infinity Wars has my highest recommendation and a must play!
One of the most fun CCG experience out there.

It took me two hours to even realize they have a premium currency. I knew this game was something special when I wasnt bombarded by sales and discounts on premium items.

As is I give it a 8.5/10.
7/10 for the game
10/10 for not wanting my money and no limits on how long I play (Energy bars are the devil!)

Give it a try. It looks like the people who made this game aren't trying to make a quick buck. A rare find :)

It's really slow to earn money and its really quick to lose it*

Haven't played much of it yet, but what I have played looks really good. The animated cards idea is really neat. I also like the mechanic with the attack and defend zones. May just be the (free) trading card game I've been looking for

Pretty great little free to play game. The campaign mode is fairly extensive, and gives you a pretty nice little starter deck for each faction by the time you finish it. The rift mode (think hearthstone arena) is a very fun limited style that lets you compete in PVP without having to own all the cards. The UI is easy to use. As for the actual gameplay, I certainly enjoy it. Haven't really gotten deep enough to know if it's 100% balanced, but it's close enough to be a lot of fun

Solid TCG. Also good single player campaign. After betting the single-player you have enough card pool to build a decent deck for PvP too.

Infinity Wars is one of the greatest digital TCGs... scratch that.
Infinity Wars is one of the greatest TCGs I have ever played, and I have played my fair share.
This game is not for those who are only seeking a casual experience (seriously, go play Hearthstone or one of those web-based games), Infinity Wars has a great level of depth to the gameplay that can only be found in simultaneous turns. Imagine fusing competitive pokemon with its simultaneous turns (leading to prediction wars, 50/50s, and a very intense experience) with MTG (factions with very different tools that work together to create hundreds of possible strategies).

Ok, so currently its not the most balanced game ever. The exiles faction is bothering many players with its RNG elements. HOWEVER this is not as serious a problem as many take it to be. This is not like Magic where any deck that isn't OP will never win. You can get by with a limited card pool without dropping $100 plus. This game is completely free to play. I haven't dropped a cent on this yet, although I do plan on doing so at some point to help out the developers.

Speaking of limited card pools, those without a lot of Rare/Legendary/Epic cards can play "paupers" where only common and uncommon are allowed, or merged, where the two players divide their decks amongst each other. These have really long queues, however.

There are a lot more features coming soon too, and IW2015 will be expanding on the already existing game. Team battles and other stuff are in the works, or so I hear.

TL;DR Jus' get it. It gud an' free tu.

It's a cool game, a good alternative to magic, but don't even try to play againts players untill you have a ♥♥♥♥ load of good cards and a nicely built deck by your self... You will run into veteran's with all kind of shinny badges every match almost, even on the ones where it's supose to be beginners only, witch means you will loss, because they have ♥♥♥♥ load of cards and have decks that can literally kill you in less than 10 moves, no mather how good your playing with your deck...
