There are better strategy games with the same mechanics. Frozen Hearth promises changes and new ideas but all I see are the same ideas and bad mechanics.

Cannot really recommend this game. Graphics are servicable, but sound and music fall flat. Gameplay is slow and boring. Plays like the Warhammer games, in that you get resource nodes, instead of chopping down trees, mining, etc. It worked well in those games, but not here. Just a very slow trudge through the map, trying to get to the victory screen. Unless things change a lot over the course of this game, just stay away.

Honestly I am actually enjoying Frozen Hearth, yea sure it may have its bugs, but is there a reason people cannot submit them instead of putting the game down? So far I am enjoying what it has to offer, and yes with various improvements it could be golden. Then again I am not the type of gamer who cares too much whether or not a game has a ton of bugs or not. I have not personally came across any as of yet, nor anything that I would deem this game unplayable.

It really brings me back to how much fun I used to have playing Age of Empires: Rise of Rome on MSN Zone, and playing it with a friend is a good experience. I am looking forward to seeing what more Frozen Hearth has to offer, as again I am enjoying it so far!

I see where they're going but the mechanics and build is so awful it's hard to enjoy. Nothing is intuitive and the races and units are so bland it's hard to care. My short playtime is due to giving the game a fair shot and being so uninspired I decided to devote my limited game time to other, better made, more enjoyable games.

Definate case of buys remorse here.. These guys need to either update & fix , do some work on this game or refund everybody for clearing trolling them and ripping them off! I read a developrs comment"we are finished developing this for the year" are you kidding? this game lacks really basic fucntions such as noway to change the graphics settings out of its native setting (wich is terrible btw),rpg elemnets are really boring and very few(minimal lvl/skill tree/gear/upgrades),this game is almost nothing like dow save for exception of point cap,( and even that's terribly done) as prievious posters have stated everytime you click on mini map to move the game will load textures!! What? The? FXXk?? there is no muylti player and even when you do have a willing firend who was unlucky enough to buy this "game" the co-op or multi will not work,both our rigs are fine our connections are fine evey other high end game works nps,but this is just a clunky horrible mess,the artwrok ,design is not soo bad the tehem is really cool the scale of uits verus buildings looks really bad!!!,the fact everythig you build is all stuck in one building and one building only sucks! it is like making a big pizza building and adding spices to the individual slices aka( resource/upgrade buildings) wich are all attched at the centrla hub building i liked it for an hour or so ,and belive i supoort heaps of green lit games and indy stuff and yeha i know how hard it is blah blah,but sorry no excuse it is obvious the ddes who made this clearly love the genre and know what they are into. wich makes me even more mad they scammed so many die hard fans with a ♥♥♥♥ poor game ,terribly shoddy mechanics,a delibertly convulted ,confusing,broken multi player set up why??? its on steam ffs! should be .. click play search friends or forum (of your game rules and is pop) bam play game noneof tis muck about here wait 20 mins ,do this try that .. itsnot bloody hamachi! i mean sure i only paid 20 bucks or whatever.. it is beside the point if i walk in to a store and steal a 20 doallr cd thats still theft and i cna be charged and probaly fined or worse go to jail i will never ever argue or give a person grief for dling torrented games ever again this is the final straw as much as i like to buy my games legit(preferably on sale) i can totally understand why people refuse to bother with a lot of new games legit as developers have this attitude of grab cash run.. if this game updates and is miraculously fixed in the next 2-3 months and i can actually play to give a better review belive i will do so .. until thne avoid this game like the plauge! it is the worst
