Taking on the role of a powerful Avatar of the heroic, individualistic Danaan; you will try to save them from certain extinction at the hands of an immense horde of ravenous ice monsters – known as the Shangur –driven ever forward by an unstoppable wave of moving ice and snow that consumes everything it shrouds.

Once you’ve mastered the many Skills, Spells, Structures, Units, and tactics in the campaign, you can test your skills against your friends in our wide selection of Player-vs-Player gametypes.

It wouldn't even load. I left the crash reporter open until I got my Steam cards.

My experience with the game:

- Launch game, click setting... goes to desktop.
- Start tutotial... goes to desktop.
- Tutotial guide stop working, figure it out on your own.
- Found a training area... while the guy was slowly telling me what to do, my fighters killed everything.
- Tried campaign... stab-stab, dead... stab-stab, dead...

So basically, you capture and hold "strategiclocations" that give you all resource types and then you spam soldiers against the other guy that spams soldiers.

The main menu failed on me.
The tutorial failed on me.
The campaign intro bored me and the game just feels bad.

The game was also tanking my gamer-PC seriously overheating it.

I can't recommend this.

Despite the negative reviews I gave this game a chance because I got it for free. Believe the hype - unit movement is too slow for map size, animations are choppy and frame rates stutter. 10 minutes into the game the voice acting will make you want to quit and then the game will crash

3/10 - would uninstall again

Frozen Hearth is similar to Baldur's Gate and Age of Empires mixed together. It doesn't offer the versatility of either game, but instead is a territorial defense strategy game, where you claim resource points, create units and take over enemy avatar territory. The game can be played in single player campaign mode, as a skirmish with up to 3 CPU Avatars, in multiplayer and co-op mode, and with varying degree's of difficulty to give yourself a challenge. The game does not offer achievements in Steam, for all the achievement hounds out there, but is still a neat little game.
