8.3/10 – IGN

“BESTES STRATEGIESPIEL 2014 - Hier wird das 4X-Genre in ähnlicher Weise neu erfunden, wie es XCOM für rundenbasierte Taktikspiele geschafft hat. Endless Legend ist ein neues Highlight im Genre!”
9/10 – Hooked Gamers

“COMMENDATION FOR DESIGN 2014 - Endless Legend brilliert in allen Bereichen. Es nimmt Altbekanntes und verbessert es. Es erfindet einiges neu, doch das tut es vorsichtig und weitestgehend erfolgreich.

Dieses Spiel sollten angehende Entwickler spielen, um von ihm zu lernen.”

Very nice 4x game. The AI is a little weak in end game as it doesn't properly fully upgrade its units, however the diversity of the factions provides a lot of replay value as every faction plays differently and the early game AI is no push over...

I have to say that I love this game. I find that it much improves upon Amplitude's previous game (Endless Space) by a huge margin, everywhere from empire management to the beutiful battles that have the aestetic of playing a tabletop wargame with animated miniatures. The game is wonderfully deep with a gradual learning curve that eases you into the beutifully, yet appropriately complex systems, like diplomacy and battle.
To say that this game is a fantasy version of Civilizations does not do either series justice. Endless Legend focuses much more on the small things, like stacked armies, customizing units, customizable heros, and unstacked cities. Unlike Civ, Endless Legend spends far more time getting you to interact with other players and AI with a rich diplomacy system that can be game-changing should you choose to use it. There are also the faction main, ruins, and minor faction quests with varying rewards that give a point to some of the otherwise more boring turns where no wars are happening, maybe a settler is being produced, and you aren't freaking out about half your cities starving in winter.
Another huge difference is that factions in Endless Legend are nothing like leaders in Civ. For one, the buffs given by choosing, say the Drakken (Ancient dragon-like people), can give you a massive advantage, like for example, knowing where everyone started and being able to force peaces and alliances. Each faction poses a different challenge in playstyle and each has specific drawbacks, that harm specific playstyles but can help others.
Enough Comparisons. Endless Legend's lore is amazingly immersive, and you don't have to look further than the game to learn it! Each quest gives hints and echos to Auriga's (Auriga is the name of the planet that the game takes place on) troubled past, to the Virtual and Concrete Endless, who warred across the galaxy in ages past, and to the connections between this and the other Endless games. This coupled with the beutifully detailed artwork and excellent soundtract puts Endless Legend as my top 4x game.

This is a very rich, complex, and amazing game with a very bad UI and user experience. It's as if someone threw a game of risk down, only 10x more complicated but then didn't explain any of the rules.

I guess people give the game a free ride in much the same way Bethesda gets a free ride on all their bugs. The game is just so good that the confusing tooltips and lack of in game information get glossed over.

I really want to give this game a positive review, as it's asymmetrical mechanics and sci-fi and d&d and story elements are amazing in a 4x title. However I shouldn't have to fight with your game for 30hrs or have to read online guides just to understand the basics of how to play. I'm still not sure how some things function or what certain tool tips are even talking about. I nearly gave up at one point, called the game broken trash (even wrote a review), and moved on. I'm glad I'm stubborn and pushed through, but a game should never put you in that position to begin with.

If you're willing to put in the effort to learn it, the game is rewarding and unique and one of the best 4x games ever. However be prepared for hours of frustration and/or lots of Google searching, forum posting, and guide reading.

Sehr gutes rundenbasiertes Strategiespiel.
Unterschiedliche Rassen inkl. angepasster Eigenschaften versprechen auch langanhaltenden Spaß.
Kampf-Ansicht mit Rundenbasierter Taktik ist gewöhnungsbedürftig, aber tut dem Spielvergnügen keinen Abbruch.

Als Civ-Fan war ich erst skeptisch, wurde aber letzten Endes überzeugt.

I looked through a lot of reviews before writing this and I find myself in a quandry. I can understand both the positive and negative reviews I read, they are mostly coherent and true. I have played most of the 4x games(historical, fantasy and sci-fi) that have ever been published so I think I can reasonably say I am speaking from experience.

Positives
I have played over 1400 hours including all the expansions. With that said I obviously like the game and I don't think I have anything new to say that you can't already read in other reviews.

Negatives
There are still some things that bug me about the game even after several expansions and updates and I think they deserve mentioning. I have noticed that people that like this game are almost defensive about it and refuse to admit it's weaknesses.

Documentation, rules, tutorials - These are all pretty bad especially for a game that many people would find complex. I really enjoy games with depth to them, that is not what I am talking about. Even after 1400 hours their are technical elements of the game I do not understand and rules I am surprised by. That shouldn't happen (especially with an experienced gamer). Much of the useful documentation has been published by players. I find it frustrating to dig through home made guides that may or may not answer my questions. The discussion group can be equally opaque. Hoping you can guess the right key word that will take you to a comment applicable to your issue is equally frustrating. Just as a prime example, the game has several races you can play. There was 1 race in particular that I just wasn't understanding fully despite a variety of searches. At one point someone suggested a tutorial on YouTube. I clicked the link, it was just under an hour long!? And, no I did not even try to watch it.

Combat - In a way this goes with my previous comment. Despite my research I still don't think I fully understand the manual combat. You give your units some generalized commands(order matters) and hope they do what you asked of them. Some of the behavior the units perform is thoroughly bewildering, i.e. you tell a unit to 'Defend' and it charges forward? Regardless, it is a long game and between that and the peculiarities of combat I simply use autocombat barring some unusual circumstances. Personally I enjoy empire building over tactics, but that is just a matter of taste.

Bugs - despite how long it's been out there are still several bugs. Are they game stoppers, generally no, that doesn't mean that I enjoy them. The developers have offered many updates and you are welcome to post bugs on their site as long as you have a save file to go with it. Not all bugs can be demonstrated with a save file.

In the end, do I recommend the game, absolutely, but it has it's flaws.

Damn awesome game that's unfortunately become the recent target of a bunch of armchair crusaders ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off because a Chinese modder can't break the rules and get away with it, hence the game's rating drop.... and my rewritten review to help shill it back up where it belongs. Go check the reviews in Simplified Chinese and you will find them to be nearly all negative. All of them crying because a Chinese language mod was deleted and the modder banned due to a gross violation of Steam's Terms of Service. But do you see any of those people ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off at the modder for commiting the violation that caused this to happen in the first place? Nope, just a bunch of whining at the developer because the rules the modder agreed to abide by were actually enforced when he violated them.

Well, it's a very good game despite the peanut gallery's crying jag and attempt to harm the game because they aren't getting their way. A lot of people don't like the combat but I personally love it and it works infinitely better than it's given credit for, as long as you actually know how to make it do what you want it to do. The factions are all unique and the UI is a god-send for a game like this. It's also very beautiful and there's a mod on the workshop that lets you create some really outstanding randomly generated topography.

You can live without the expansions but they're all worth having. In order of my preference they are Guardians, Shifters and Shadows. The other stuff like the quest pack and soundtracks I don't own and I'm not interested in them but you might be. I really do like the game and I recommend it. Others don't and I can understand why they wouldn't based on their personal preferences, as long as we're not calling the combat broken or stupid. It is neither. The combat works very well and is a lot of fun IF you know how to do it.

Anyway, if you research the issue with the game's recent rating you'll find that the drop has nothing at all to with the game itself, just a bunch of ignorant, entitled little children having a tantrum about a mod.

You should - if you love your RTS games - really think about getting this game.
The only reason it has dropped in reviews is that some chinese brats decided to do negative review bombs due to a problem with a 3rd person chinese translation mod. While in the shop side it clearly says chinese isnt a supported languege.

Here are some points that make this game a unique (and brilliant) experience for every strategy-fan:

1) Factions actually play differently
You have like... what... 9 to pick from? And each race has a difference in traits and therefor makes it easier/harder to reach specific wins. You can even create your own race with the traits you love the most.

2) Combat
I admit I havent really looked into this point yet. It gives you an option to personalyse how your troops fight, but even if you roll with the auto function you arent left of screwed.

3) Tech hubs
Only you decide how you advance in research. Want to focus on ressources? Or on defense/offense? Your choice alone. And for the freaks out there, that love to unlock new stuff: You can score a win just by beeing over the top in research, leaving your enemies behind.

4) Different ways to beat your enemy
There are more ways to win the game than I actually remember. You can win by having the most dust (which is more or less gold ingame) scoring an industrial win. You can win by having the most overall points, or by killing every other enemy on the board. As mentioned above research also scores an unique win. An other option is a victory through missions similar to a campaign, which I havent done before cuz Im lazy. You can even score a diplomatic win, simply by beeing too powerful in that point category. I think I forgot 1-2 but you get my point. It has an amazing potential to adapt to whichever playstyle you prefer.

5) Setting up games
Of cause it offers a campaign and all, but it also gives you several options for endless games.
- Speed: The faster you gain ressources, the less control you have as you get less turns overall.
- World size / Number of enemies
- Difficulty of world itself and the enemy
- World itself: how big is it, how many rivers / forests / mountains, where does each faction start, how big is the ocean, how many islands is the world itself

6) Diplomacy
If you are smart, then you prepare yourself in research and strength before you start a war. But if you are too busy scoring your prefered non military win, then you better make sure that the other factions don't start a war becuz theyre getting jelous.
You can trade ressources, research, make other factions fight each other, or even demmand a town from your enemy for peace after you beat them in war.

Has some elements like the Civilization games, but the combat in far more tactical and worthwhile. The way the quests are done keep you from getting bored waiting for a tech upgrade and the different races keep the game interesting as you try to master each one. This game is a great value if you enjoy turn-based strategy games.

Now 4X games aren't for everyone, but I have looked around quite a bit. My own interests lean towards space RTS and space 4X (Sins, Homeworld, GalCiv), but Amplitude do the strategy genre so much justice with this game.

Given about 5 games, and observing some videos, a new player can pick this up pretty fast and usually have a good idea about who they'll want to be playing as.

Great way to pass time, not so intricate to be confusing, but complicated enough to vary up strategies.

Awesome game, definitely worth a couple hours with some friends, or simply a diversion to challenge yourself.

i love this game so much. i love that it's a lot like Civ V, but with more variety to the gameplay. you can turn off victory conditions you don't want, allowing you to focus on beating the game the way you want to. if you're playing as the necrophages (who can't do any diplomacy stuff) and want to focus on an economic or science based victory, you can. every single playable race can be customized from the full list of traits. do you like that the occultists can convert villages and wish the other races could do that too? well, they can. i also like that you can automate your entire empire or individual cities, allowing you to ignore late game micromanaging that so many people dislike.
i agree with people that the combat gets repetitive after awhile-but the devs planned for that and put probably the best autocombat simulator i've ever seen in a game so that you'd wouldn't ever have to manually command a battle after the moment you got bored with it. you can also choose different battle strategies when you are about to do combat. you can choose from offensive, defensive, or hold position strategies-which is fantastic when you're sending archers into combat against melee units. often, they can win unscathed if they hold position. i just recently picked up the shifters dlc and the allayi (moth people), and i enjoy that they have what appears to be a new type of unit-flying. which suffers no movement penalties from terrain and adds to the list of unit types (archer, melee, calvary, support). i also recently got the lost tales dlc which added a whole mess of missions and lore to the game, further adding to the immersiveness and personality of the game. the shifters dlc combined with the lost tales really made me feel for the plight of Auriga. the world is so beautiful and varied in terrain types (speaking of-i like how elevation plays a role in movement during combat and also while roaming the world) and the amount of customization and control they give you over the various elements of the world. you can control how harsh the winter is, how big the regions are (regions are what split up the world-you can have one city per region), how tough the minor factions and their villages are to defeat (minor factions can also be bribed or you can do a quest for them to pacify them), and much more can be altered.
i haven't played the Forgotten dlc/playable race much, but they add much more depth to the game by adding espionage and removing the ability (for the Forgotten, at least) to research technologies. the Forgotten can only buy or steal new tech. speaking of the technology, all races share the majority of the same technologies in each era (there are 6 research eras that are unlocked by researching 9 technologies from the previous era) but each playable race has it's own special techs that only they can unlock (unless you create your own customized race-then you can pick from the list of specialized techs). i also like that the technology can be unlocked in any order and you can select as many technologies are you want to create a research queue-a nice step up from Civ V's restrictive tech tree. everything produced is carried over to the next thing as well. what i mean by that is: your food production carries over to the next person after a new citizen is born, production left over from a building or unit is carried over to the next one, and science put towards a technology carries over to the next one in the queue.
i don't have enough space to list all the great things i love about this game. i suggest getting the game with all the dlc you can get. each dlc adds plenty of new content to keep the game fresh. (i hope they add a dlc of a playable race, that doesn't use production, rather they buy or steal units/buildings somehow and add the Harmony from Endless Space who ignore Dust entirely-all the other resources (FIDS-Food, Industry, Dust, Science) have a race that largely ignores it and i think that would add even more depth/alternative gameplay to this game.
