About the Game

Frozen Hearth is a Real-Time Strategy game, blended with exciting RPG features to create a new experience for lovers of RTS games. Set in our own unique, Dark-Fantasy world-setting, you can play alone, or co-operatively with a friend, through an epic and brutal campaign. 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.

Multiplayer

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. Our Multiplayer game and map-types offer both well-loved favourites, and some new surprises of our own! Or of course, if you’re feeling confident, just jump right into the PvP action!

  • Play as either the warlike Danaan, or the bloodthirsty Shangur in multiplayer skirmishes and PvP
  • Heroic characters with skill-based character progression, powerful spells, and many hero items

I thought a game that had initial price of 23.99 would be somewhat polished so I jumped on the sale. I got my buddy to get a free version of the game also. We thought we are going to have a good time. Oh were we wrong. The journey was a very painfull one and full of sorrows. It started with us having no freaking clue wtf was going on during the tutorial. The so called campaign coop tutorial consisted of putting us on the opposite parts of the map and making us beat the ♥♥♥♥ out of each other.
That was fine whatever, eventhough we desynced multiple times. During the second level the desync issue became even worse. We were able to get a couple source nodes before the enemies attacked. Oh the AI pathing was horrendous, I barely managed to get back to my base because AI kept getting stuck inside trees and taking the stupidest routes possible. Well I got home and defended the first wave of the enemies. Then my game crashed to desktop.
My friend kept going forward while my hero stood there without any control at all. I was unable to rejoin the game because it said the current lobby had 5/4 people. After another failed attempt to join it said the lobby was at 6/4. I kept saying wtf is going on. When I was finally able to join the lobby my friend has failed the mission because he was unable to control my hero. Yea this was the best and the worst experience I have had with an indie game. We have played a game called Love by Eskil Steenberg and that says a lot. So overall this was a giant waste of time, bandwidth and harddrive space. Save yourself and fly you fools.

My friend also has this to say. "Your game sucks. (period) All of the default hotkeys are completely wrong. There's a game called dota 2. You should play that for a little bit to see how to make control interfaces and hotkeys."

First of all i got this game for free. I then checked the price on steam and i thought this is worth a decent amount of money must be pretty good. Then i read the reviews, reading that the game is complete trash i thought i can give it chance it can't be that bad. Then i played the game... and all those reviews that said bad things were 100% trash. I highly don't recommend this game is garbage. I couldn't even finish the first mission it was so bad.

This game is not worth the time it takes to download.
Avoid it.

In generally it seem like a nice game. But there is no possibilty to safe your game, you have just the opportunity to resume to your progress when you finished a map. I have so many crashes that i didnt get that far in 6 tries. Not one time because i failed, but each time because it crashed. My system is definitely good enough for it, so it must be some softwarte problem.
And when you try the first level 6 times and fail because of crashes, you get tired of a game.
Unless you are really sure it will run fine i would not recommend buying this.

Sluggish controlls, camera is too close to action, game doesnt run stable at all, when you change position on minimap it loads textures; I've never seen that in an RTS.

Couldnt find any online games, either noone is playing it or I have to open a port. (What year is this?)

I can't use hotkeys for spells of the hero when he is in a group with normal units, I have to put the hero in his own group which doesn't really work because the group system is bugged, sometimes I can select groups, sometimes not.

It's pretty hard to disgintish units in battle because it gets cluttered up and they just randomly swing around.

The missions I played were so godawfully boring, having to defend from enemy troops which are no threat at all for 15 minutes, couldve gone afk at that point and it wouldn't have made a difference.

All in all this game feels like it should've come out 2001.
