“Plays out on one of the greatest, most beautiful maps in strategy gaming history. It combines style, substance, and setting into a marvelous overall experience for both empire management and tactical combat.”
8.3/10 – IGN

“Reinvents the 4X genre, mirroring what XCOM did for tactical turn-based games, and they have, as today Endless Legend brings the genre to new heights.”
9/10 – Hooked Gamers

“At every stage Endless Legend shines. Where it takes from the past, it puts its own spin on it. Where it innovates, it does so cautiously and mostly successfully. Amplitude Studios has created another astounding story-driven game, that really has taken the best bits of RTS, RPG and 4X. This is a game that wannabe developers should play and learn from.”

This is review for version 1.0.12 @ 2014/10/30

Endless Legend is a 4X turn-based fantasy game. The world settings, background story and races are a little relative with Endless Space.

Several awesome feature
+Gorgeous artworks, pictures and animation.
+Wonderful in-game music. And OST included for sure.
+Simple and neat UI design.
+Distinguished races with nice story.
+Interesting and challenging battle system.
+Customizable race and units.
+Mod support.

-No hotkey instruction and no option to customize the hotkey.

Generally speak, Endless Legend is definitely a masterpiece. If you like deep and complex gameplay, thinking and figuring out strategies, managing and expanding, you should try Endless Legend!

此外,本遊戲其實是以接近光速的速度高速移動中

1.電子遊戲不含質量,不是巨大質量的物體,但每次遊戲庫打開後就會莫名的被吸引,遊戲開啟後還會感到巨大阻力無法離開遊戲,再一回合就好。根據愛因斯坦相對論,這種現象是因為此遊戲以趨近於光速高速移動中,因此其質量會趨近於無限大,巨大的質量產生巨大的引力,這就是為什麼再一回合就好。

2.在遊戲中會莫名的感覺外界時間過的快速,根據牛頓慣性定律,人在遊戲中則表示人與遊戲的速度相同,根據上點遊戲以趨近光速高速移動,因此遊戲者也是以趨近光速高速移動。根據愛因斯坦相對論,物體速度趨近於光速,則其本身的時間會過的比外界較慢,因此明明只是再一回合,外界的時間卻過了兩天。

It's literally Heroes of Might and Magic mixed with Sid Meier's Civilization.

What more do you want?

Just don't play the tutorial.
It's awful and dosen't explain much.
The UI is simple, but takes getting used too, after a quick warm-up round you'll be good to go if you explore it some.
Hell, you will get a basic idea of what to do if you take a moment and read through the factions triats.

The combat feels uninvolved at first glance, but it's more on how you tell your troops to do things. You can tell them what to do, to the letter if you learn to use the unit tactics, as they tend to do their own thing unless you tell them not too.
I played some multiplayer, and it definetly showed the difference it makes to interact with your troops compared to just telling them who to attack as you can better control the field and force them into narrow areas in the terrain, or into some troops you have on the high ground. In other words, it was a massacre, not a battle.
I'm so sorry to that Broken Lords Player, whoever you were.
Should of accepted the peace treaty, bruh.

Overall, good stuff. I'll play this over Civ anyday.

This is a 4X game with some interesting new mechanics, which mostly work well. For me it's basically the Sword of the Stars (1, not 2) of land-based 4X. The things that I enjoy most are the city management system and that you don't have to go wide to win, though there certainly are advantages to rapid expansion. I beat the game on the hardest difficulty with the one-city-only faction.

If I was giving it a score I'd probably say 8. It isn't as polished and well-rounded as Civ V, but I find it to be more fun and interesting.

- Looks much prettier than Beyond Earth.
- Lots of people praise the music. I wouldn't say it's the greatest, but it is solid.
- All the factions are interesting and different. Each has a gimmick, though they don't all suit the playstyles that the developers intended.
- The hero system can be annoying at times, since some heroes are just completely better than others, and it is random chance which ones you'll be given access to (though starting heroes are always the same).
- As with many 4X games, it suffers from the fact that the victory conditions can be pretty meaningless. Literally the fastest way to win a diplomacy victory is to continually break your alliances and reform them each turn. Also, once you start winning, you may as well just kill everyone else immediately rather than waiting to get a science victory or whatever.
- Combat can be very tedious; I recommend increasing the combat animation speed immediately. Also, do not underestimate the importance of initiative in combat. Each unit only gets one attack/counterattack, and the default counterattack overrides all except one of the special attacks.
- You have to work out a lot of the mechanics for yourself. This game does not hold your hand. Reading a guide on city leveling/building is almost mandatory.
- Harder difficulties are legit challenging.
- Quests system is robust enough, but some of them are fairly stupid and/or impossible.
- Strategic and luxury resources all have meaningful differences and advantages.

Some basic info so you can work out if it is the game for you:

Hex-based movement. Out of combat movement is in army stacks with movement of slowest unit, but combat is in a 6-turn battle/encounter where the units split into one-unit-per-tile. This encourages you to build armies which complement each other out of different unit types.

Cities work differently to most other games of the genre. The population is essentially all "specialists", to use the Civ term, where each unit of population can be used to create (base) 4food/4industry/4science/4dust/2influence depending on your priorities that turn. Food, industry, etc. on terrain adjacent to the city is automatically collected, and you can expand the city by building districts in adjacent hexes to increase the area being passively collected from.

The world is divided into regions, and you can only have one city per region. This makes city placement be really important, and leads to important decisions as to city expansion.

Units are upgradeable with equipment. Each faction has three unique base units, and you can assimilate up to three minor factions to get a faction-unique buff and their factions unit. eg. assimilate the Haunts to get 5% to science per Haunt village in your territory, and build "Ended" which are flying ghosts with a chain lightning attack.

If you like Civilization-style TBS*, but want more depth and strategy, as well as much more unique races and the option to create your own race, this is the game for you.
I have played Civ:BE, and I honesty regret pre-ordering that game before playing Endless Legend, Civ:BE is nothing compared to this game.

*TBS not RTS, thank you Sahuagin.

4X done right!

For the TL;DR Its a great game. Hits so many great titles out there, but adding its own fresh curve balls. I do not regret my purchess. I would recommend this game to anyone. 10/10

This is by far, one of the best 4x I have played in a very long time. If you are a Civ fan you need to give this game some thought. It has everything the civ fans enjoyed over the years, but at the same time also gives new and refreashing ideas. It has the 4X feel to it that we all know and love. So it wont take long to start understanding the way this one plays but at the same time also throws some curve balls your way making you go "whoa, that is awesome"

Scrolling out the map never felt so good. in other games you scroll out. Get an under standing and scroll back in. This, you scroll out and admire everything you have done seeing all that you controlll from a more masters look. Feeling like your on that iron throne and pushing around your wood pieces.

Combat gives a whole new meaning to the 4X genra. Iv played alot of these style games. I love the combat to this, So far this game has dabbled in my childhood more then I thought it would from playing Civ 1-5 and Heros of might and magic.
If your a heros of might and magic fan being able to tell eatch unit who to attack and where to run instead of click, right click. and a fight broke out. You get so much more controll over what eatch unit does. AS well as your hero.

Units, being able to gear up your units with more armor and weapons, rings and necklesses. For how indepth this game goes. Its got me comin back for more and more eatch time.

Heroes. Eatch hero has a skill tree as well as gains xp. Adding new armor, trinkets, weapons. Skill points. Want a badd ♥♥♥ that leads your troops to hell and back, you got it. Want one that sits in your city and just helps run that ♥♥♥♥. You got that to. I love just exactly how much controll i have over what everyone does.

On to that last part over controll. Your citys go a little different in the route of how things are done instead of making workers. plowing feilds building this, and telling them to do this. Instead you have workers, but apart of the city. Want to pop out more gold(in this case Dust) Move one, two or all of the workers over to dust. Need to make this troop faster for that war. Move all your workers over to industry. Some may say that might make it easier but it doesnt just makes it more convenient. Workers are still taken away eatch time you make a settler so there is a downfall to all happy ups.

The other thing that I love about this is the races to choose from, eatch with there own back story and quest line. There own play style. Really throwing more in to the ring. Not only this, its the fantasy theme, if your a fantasy lover, 4X player, and a Heroes of might and magic playing Civ 5 person. Give this game more then just thought, go ahead and put it in that cart. You will not regret it.

Looking for the story elements that Firaxis forgot in Beyond Earth? They're right here. The varied factions lead to tons of replyability. Each faction plays differently. There are some balance issues, but this is well forth playing . Firaxis need to step their game, Amplitude dunked them here.

One of the most original and innovative 4x games to come out in years. Eight wildly varied factions (each with their own unique, expansive plotlines), a host of really interesting, unique mechanics (only one city per district, no tech tree). Most of the mechanics are very intuitive, but offer some pretty significant depth.

This came out at the same time as Beyond Earth, but it's been much better received, and the reason for that is simple- it has personality. Playing with each of the factions is like starting a different singleplayer game, and the faction creator is very flexible. Like its predecessor, Endless Space, the game also has fantastic, understated art and music.

The only problems are that some of the more advanced faction-specific mechanics are poorly explained, and that the AI can sometimes be poor at defending their cities. Amplitude have patched this, but some more work remains to be done.

Overall, the most fun I've had with a 4x since Alpha Centauri.

Excellent strategy game with true diversity. Many games like this all of the different factions play exactly the same, this one they are all unique. Awseome that you can customize any units gear or all of your units of the same type. I love it, playing it more now since Civ Beyond Earth is such a let down.

I am baffled as to how this game could reinvent the civilization formula with so much originality that it makes me wish the civilization series would actually learn from this.

Extremely fine art and an absolutely gorgeous map, and lots to do. And I do find it quite hard. I still have to play many many hours but I am enjoying this a lot. All of the races are interesting and it is a first that I'm actually playing everything random.

9/10. Excellent

Pretty damn good game. It has a medium learning curve because you can build and use your empire how you want to.
Unlike most 4x games its not as much about expanding your empire as it is building it up.
You are not confined to a tech line and they really made this game open ended and customizable for the player.

The closest this game can be discribed is imagine civ and heros of might&magic had child; this would be the result.

There is so much that could be said about this game but ill narrow it down in four words. Deep Fun innovative and sandboxy like a 4x should be.

Each faction is totally diffrent and does not have the cookie cutter races that only differ slightly from eachother. One faction can only build one city. Another faction can move there citys becouse they are nomatic. Another faction doesnt eat food but consumes a diffrent resource. Another faction eats well,, other factions citizens!! Its great!

The Heros are amazing and have the MOO2 govener feel to them. Did I mention all the side quests in the game? Yes there are those too.

I can go on and on about all the neat things you can do in this game that are just ingenous but all I have to say is; This game is simply a fresh take and a instant classic. I have no regret buying it.

Only down side is there are a few small bugs to get squashed yet.

From the makers of Endless Space comes a stylish fantasy 4x. For anyone who has watched the intro to The Game of Thrones, the art style will be familiar, a quite unique look that I dont recall seeing before,

The gameplay is fairly familiar to anyone who has played a lot of 4x, with a few interesting mechanics to throw in there. Empire planning every few seasons allows you some customisation for your empire, allowing you to focus on say dust production (game resource) or reduction in costs to recruiting units. Strategic resources located within your territory enable you to create armor, weapons and equipment for your troops as well as provide mid to late game bonuses which again provide some nice customisation.

You are able to customise your units to some degree creating 1h shield or 2h for the basic infantry units for example. Further customisation in the material the weapons and armour is made from allow for further bonuses such as stuns and sweepback strikes (aoe).

The only problem I have encountered stability wise is the need to run the client in 32bit as suggested by the company on the forums as it was prone to regular crashing. I have had no problems since doing this altho it will crash on exit every time now, (will update if this is fixed or changes)

Overall I would recommend this as a nice addition to 4x library.

Here is a current playthrough I am running at the moment:

Just finished tutorial, this game is good. Overall this game is like civilization game with a new fantasy setting, battle is similar to Heros of Might and Magic.
1. Graphics 8, just normal.
2. Music is awesome, 9!
3. Game play 9, it's fun to play so far, so much to explore, and I think it's better than Civ beyond the earth at this moment. (This will be altered if 2k release other dlcs to complete CIV:BE...)
Overall it's worth buying, another game to waste time on next round.

才结束教程,感觉还不错。总体来说相当于一个新的世界设定下的文明游戏,战斗倒是类似英雄无敌系列。
1. 画面8分,普普通通吧。
2. 音乐很赞!9分!
3. 游戏性,9分!说实话目前玩下来感觉比超越地球要好玩。(如果后面2k发布dlc把超越地球做好的话就把这句去掉。。)
总体来说推荐购买啦!又多了一个不停下一轮的游戏!

I am not sure how this one slipped under my radar, but I just picked it up on sale and am havin a blast. Excellent graphics, unique gameplay features that really make it different than Civ5 or CivBE and other games in the genre. The quest system is great. Character development with skills and gear is really well done. In my opinion this game is much better than CivBE.

(Review for version #1.0.21 #2014/11/27)

Endless Legend is a 4X (explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate; Sid Meier's Civilization is an important example of the 4X-era) turn-based fantasy game.

It's really difficult - for an old strategist like me - to find something wrong within the game.
+The visuals are stunning,
+the soundtrack is harmonic and match the turn-based gameplay,
+the combat system is simple, yet interesting,
+a modern transparent UI,
+Customizable race and units and
+Mod support.
(Also the lore is quite fascinating)

But! - like every pro - there is critic:
-Like in other strategy-games, there's a lack of KI-performance. If you turn up the difficulty, it will just provide higher buffs (like more money, more science etc.) for the KI. It could simulate a challenge for someone, but for others it's just cheating and unfair. (I will deny my own opinion in this regard)


Overall, good stuff. Not bad for an Indie-game. This game tried some new ideas and implemented those successful.
8.5/10
