Reviews

“With crisp graphics and addictive turn-based gameplay, Etherlords II is an unexpectedly strong adventure/RPG/strategy title. [Dec 2003, p.92]”
100/100 – Play Magazine

“If you like "Magic: The Gathering" and "Heroes of Might and Magic", then you should get a kick out of this - if you're willing to devote serious time to an occasional, nonsensically difficult battle.”
80/100 – IGN

“Easily recommendable not only to anyone with an interest in collectible card games, including fans of the original, but also to those who enjoy turn-based strategy games with a twist.”
80/100 – GameSpot

Good old classic game right here! Solid gameplay, and pretty fun if you're into the whole turn based strategy game genre.

Etherlords 2 is a collectible card game very similar to Magic: The Gathering. The player collects cards to build a deck of spells and creatures. When you approach enemies on the world map you have the opportunity to fight them. This is where the actual card game starts. The player takes turn with the enemy casting spells and attacking. Victory is achieved by killing the opponent. The card game is surprisingly complex and it feels rewarding when your deck works. In addition your character levels up and can choose perks that will influence your strategy. If you enjoy these types of table top games you will probably have fun with Etherlords 2.

The problem is...everything else outside the card game. The voice acting is sub par and the movement/animations on the world map are jerky and frustrating. There is no camera angle that let's you properly see where you're going and there are no resolution options that I could fine.

I rushed thought the poor dialog and map navigation as fast as possible so I could get back to actually playing the card game. If you like card games then I will grudgingly recommend Etherlords 2 because it can be quite fun, but everything else almost spoils the game.

Unpolished, gritty interface, rigid UI, old

Feels like trying to drive a really old, beaten up hillbilly pick-up truck, with mud perma caked on the sides, half painted, half raw rusted steel, steering from europe or america, depending on whatever country you aren't from, with a cracked windshield, and i mean cracked. No power steering.

Funnily enough, extremely fun.

Sadly, far too short. Something very essential is missing to make this game work, becuase it has soemthing that no other game has out there, a perfect mix of card game, and grid turn based strategy. so many games out there have tried, and failed. Simply because they got the basics wrong, this one, I am amazed to say, as bad as it is---got the basics right.

Just a shame that's about all it got right,
recomended purely for strategy enthusiasts, or developers that want some inspiration.

This is one of my all time favourite card games. Despite its age, it holds up remarkably well thanks to solid gameplay mechanics, and the graphics come from an era of 3D where their aging looks don't count against the game at all. The story and voice acting are fun, with the game giving you access to a bunch of different tactics and gimmicks you can play in your decks. All kinds of synergies and cool strategies for you to discover and come up with. The game is constantly challenging you as well, setting you up against very specifically designed decks, leaving you to figure out how to make decks of your own that counter them. I can easily recommend this game to any fan of card games.
