Reviews

“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

“BEST STRATEGY GAME 2014 - 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

“COMMENDATION FOR DESIGN 2014 - 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.”

About This Game

Create your own Legend

Another sunrise, another day of toil. Food must be grown, industries built, science and magic advanced, and wealth collected. Urgency drives these simple efforts, however, for your planet holds a history of unexplained apocalypse, and the winter you just survived was the worst on record. A fact that has also been true for the previous five.


As you discover the lost secrets of your world and the mysteries of the legends and ruins that exist as much in reality as in rumor, you will come to see that you are not alone. Other peoples also struggle to survive, to grow, and perhaps even to conquer.

You have a city, a loyal populace, and a few troops; your power and magic should be sufficient to keep them alive. But beyond that, nothing is certain… Where will you go, what will you find, and how will you react? Will your trail be one of roses, or of blood?

Explore fantastic lands.

  • Lead one of eight civilizations each with a unique gameplay style and storyline.
  • Survive through cold dark seasons that drive Auriga to its end. Will it also be yours?
  • Experience an endless replayability with randomly generated worlds and quests.
  • Set the size, shape, topography and more... to create your own world to discover.

Expand beyond the unknown.

  • Conquer, build and develop villages into feared fortresses or wonderful cities.
  • Assimilate powerful minor factions and use their special traits and units wisely.
  • Hire, equip and train your heroes to become army leaders or city governors.
  • Raise your civilization by finding mysterious artefacts and forgotten technologies.

Exploit every opportunity.

  • Evolve your civilization through the discovery of new advanced technologies.
  • Collect Dust, luxuries and strategic resources tradable on the marketplace.
  • Keep one step ahead of other civilizations through trade and subtle diplomacy.
  • Choose from different victory conditions and adapt your strategy on the fly.

Exterminate fools who defy you.

  • Experience an innovative dynamic simultaneous turn-based battle system.
  • Use unit equipement, abilities and the terrain to overcome your opponents.
  • Zoom out of a battle and rule the other aspects of your empire seamlessly.
  • Define your custom civilizations and confront those created by your friends.

Not the best 4x game ever played but the most refreshing one no doubt. Lots to love about this new take on the genre. Worth the support of the developers and hoping for more experiences in the future

Ssenkrad_II is a reviewer that falsifies how this game's mechanics works as well as blocks any comments that bring out the blatant lies the "reviewer" makes. It is possible to win the game through diplomacy, quest, supremacy, etc. This is coming from some one that has the achievements for winning the game multiple ways and has almost the same amount of hours as the reviewer claiming that supremacy is the only way to win.

The false review mentioned found here:
http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198072017110/recommended/289130/


Do not trust any reviews from the previously mentioned Steam user as they simply do not go in-depth or even allow people to question the credibility of their claims when they try to paint the game in a light that implies a mechanic is broken.

The actual game itself does not have a hard learning curve if you've played previous turn based strategy games. The diplomacy system is straightforward and shows you whether or not the trade will be agreed. Diplomacy is basic to the point that complimenting an empire for a handful of turns can make a hostile empire more friendly to the point that you can eventually ally them.

Endless Legend is a great game that is an easy pick up for anyone wanting to get into the 4x, turn based strategy genre. Factions are easy to learn and the game allows you to partake in an interesting campaign if you decide to try the quest victory. The AI can also present a challenge at higher difficulties as they are given modifiers to their economy, the handicap for the player will increase as the difficulty increases.

Settling cities is also an easy task depending on how you prioritize your city, where you place your city, and whether or not the city has a hero assigned to it. If you have a city focused on production you can dish out settlers to expand quickly but will have to sacrifice turns in doing so vs. building up that city to become a dust farm (gold).

This game also has a wonderful modding community for anyone that is interested in expanding the game through user-created content.

Under the heading above titled: 'User reviews' please ignore 'Recent'.

Recent examples: There are Chinese guys who aren't good at English and manifestly angry about it (because this game is obviously localized for a hot market like China) and another guy thought this was a HoMM clone. Still others thought it 'boring', 'sterile' and many found it 'confusing'... So I conclude that those who aren't Chinese and know what kind of game this is ought to be the right person to consider buying this title. Those with short attention spans and questionable intelligence, should in theory not enjoy this game.

The rest of you not falling into the abovementioned categories may read the very many positive reviews that dwarf the negative ones entirely and rest securely in the knowledge that you would be buying a well-designed 4X title with plenty of content to justify its cost.

Also don't play it in a hospital for the experience might turn out to be 'sterile'.

I am not a master in English, I played fine with Chinese localization mod for few months offline. Today I opened my Steam and update all as usual. ****, Where is my Chinese localizing mod? I just needed a few mins on searching in my e-dictionary few days ago but now I have to spend a few hours every time a long text shows up. You ruined my experience so I have to say no recommend.

I am really enjoying this game. What I like most is that it encourages you to exploit the various features of the game. For example, even if you want to focus on just a handful of cities, you may end up needing to expand in order to get access to the strategic resources you will need to build the best city improvements. I expect I will spend a lot of time playing this game before I am done.

I should add that my system is running this game just fine even though it is below the minimum specifications. I have an Intel HD graphics 530. The default graphics settings that came up on install work fine for me although I'm sure it'd be nice to be able to support higher resolution. Maybe some day!

Just here to balance out the review score. Endless Legend should by no means rates a 47%. And something like "Don't recommend because no Chinese version." What is this arrogant farce?

The overall aesthetics of EL is definitely amazing to say the least. The futuristic fantasy style design fits so well with the setting. The graphics have a very shrewd and modern fashion, if you are not a retro sucker then you should be absolutely satisfied with them. Hell, this game looks way better to me than the preview screenshots of Civ 6. The music is among the best game soundtracks I have ever listened to. The composer Fly By No really melded different styles of music into it, every time I open the game, the main menu track "Song of Auriga" always gives me goosebumps. Good music adds depth to a game, and for EL this is definitely the case.

The gameplay is pretty good imo. The factions are very distinct, each favoring one or two specific victory condition. The exploration and exploitation parts resemble Civ very similiarly. For the expansion EL features an organic city growing system, which is adopted by Civ 6 now. City districts and extractors need to be put on the map directly, they can be destroyed or raided, which adds more to the strategic layer. The extermination, or the combat, of EL is probably my least favorite part. Instead of doing combat on the map like Civ, battles are resolved in a seperate tactical map. The problem is the combat isn't as diversed and interesting like say, AOW 3. So eventually I would just auto-resolve most of the fights.

Overall, EL is a solid 8/10 for me. If the devs can deliver the rumored "last expansion" about naval thingy plus glitch fixing, I'd gladly raise it to 9.

Pros:
10/10 x4 game. Graphics beat CIV and *definitely* has better mechanics. DLC is a great addition to the game and adds factions/quests, and fun research stuff.

Cons:
♥♥♥♥ developers who don't update their game and fix (multiplayer) bugs. FIX THEM!! It's been 1+ years and people still get the same ♥♥♥♥ing bugs. Plus their website has been down for (almost half a year. Jesus christ, get your ♥♥♥♥ together AMPLITUDE Studios!!
No one plays/hosts multiplayer games. No reason too. Multiplayer lobby list is literally EMPTY.

Past the infuriating bugs the game *still* has, I definitely recommend playing. It's a very very fun game, and it's just as satisfying playing single-player matches. This game had so much potential for multiplayer, it's a real shame.

Around 20 hours played and I love this game. I was a bit afraid of this game just being a re-skin of Sid Meier's Civilization but in many regards got something completely else. The battle system, the neat graphic, variety of the races and really fun gameplays makes me recommend this game fully.

The only bad thing I can think of is the somewhat pricey DLC's. There are quite a few of them and if you want all of them it surely adds up.

Product received for free
I had heard of the Endless titles but had been trapped in an endless loop of Civilization and Paradox titles and hadn't given it any real attention. Having now received this for free I felt that push to try it out and, my word, am I glad I did. It's games like this that wake you up to the wider world of strategy games that often get overshadowed by the big names.

I have been absolutely bowled over by every aspect of this game so far, bar the UI (which isn't bad by any means), and I no longer have any desire to preorder Civ 6.

- Thick serving of interesting and varied factions each with their own lore, well fleshed out minor factions and a brilliant mix of civ V epochs and Heroes of Might & Magic style hero/unit creating and management.
- The combat mechanic was a pleasant surprise and I am looking forward to bigger battles. Occasionally I can't work out why units have performed a particular action but I will need to look into that further before calling it out as a flaw.
- The art style is balanced wonderfully, both sharp and detailed, allowing for this dense, varied world to shine through.
- The music is simply top notch. Refreshing choice of instruments and really well written and produced.
- Game audio is decent, not standout but it does the job.
- UI is very functional, would have preferred better use of screenspace on fullscreen panels like the unit creation and hero panels but it's crisp and clean and does the job very well.

That's all I can be bothered to type now because I just want to get back to playing this brilliant game! BYE
