Reviews

“Europeans already know this is the best of the best; take the plunge and see why this is the most successful series overseas. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.”
9.5/10 – Worthplaying

“An ambitious effort, and a definite success. Conveying an interesting story with beautiful graphics, great voice acting, a nice soundtrack, and a tight control scheme, very few flaws are to be found in SpellForce 2.”
9/10 – Just RPG

“It's really hard to blend genres as thoroughly as Phenomic has done here and come away successful at all so it's a testament to the developer's dedication to the cause.”
8.4/10 – IGN

I really wanted to give this game a positive review and until today I was pretty sure it's going to happen. Let's start by saying, that I've played both main Spell Force games when I was much younger and it was great to remind myself why I enjoyed these games. It's very good combination of rpg and strategy. So why the negative review?

Well... First of all, this game is better than the first one. I find it hard to believe that someone without sentiment towards first Spell Force would have a different opinion. Plot is solid, in both games, but Spell Force 2 has better graphic, better music and most importantly, better controls. It's also much better paced. You finally don't feel like you wasting eternity just going from one point on the map to another. It has aged much better that the first game, it's still very enjoyable, you don't get the feeling like the camera or characters movements are clunky. Strategic elements of the game were also improved. The only thing that I've enjoyed better in the first Spell Force was the fact, that it has definitely more freedom in terms of creating your own character.

As for Spell Force 2 itself...

Pros:
+ interesting plot
+ original and well done mix between strategy and rpg
+ game is truly challenging
+ great music
+ interesting and useful spells/special abilities that unlocks when you level up

Cons:
- low resolution
- lack of truly interesting quests
- gaining another level doesn't really feel that rewarding
- pretty limited character creation
- dialogue scenes are essentially broken - characters not always shows up or does not shows up properly
- BUGS.

Yeah, I'm sorry, but how can you recommend a game that basically make you feel like you've wasted 16 hours of your life playing it? I am really understanding, I'm not the type of person who gets over frustrated and never wants to play a game after encountering a less or more serious bug. Sure, it's pretty annoying, but if it can be fixed somehow, if I can replay some sequences or just restart the whole mission, I'm still going to do this. So I've encountered few serious, game breaking bugs. Two times restarting missions worked. In other instance, skipping the dialogue was an only way to avoid being literally stuck in the void. And now... Well, now I actually can't finish my quest, because even though I've done everything that was needed to be done, even get a note in journal to go back to the person that is crucial for moving the plot forward... Well, this person does not want to talk to me. At all. There's no scene. No dialogue. Nothing. Replaying the sequence and the whole mission didn't work.

Maybe this game works better on older systems (I don't remember having this sort of problems in the past), but with this amount of serious bugs it's not really worth a recommendation. Buy it only if you want to replay it or just remind yourself the whole series.

I had finished the last campaign in SpellForce 1 and jumped straight into this sequel.

What I don't like is the fact that when compared to the first game, it feels much more simplified and lacks this specific "magic" atmosphere (that's in my personal opinion). There are also several bugs, which force you to save game quite often, just to feel ensured that you won't lose your progress.

However, I still have fun with this game. It's not as good as the 1st one but it still delivers. Many things are improved, such as the way the map is revealed or your avatar behavior when close to the enemy. If you liked the first game, you should have some fun with this sequel as well.

It's a great rpg / strategy game. But the amount of BUGS make it almost unplayable, if you're copmmited to play it, remember to save the game a lot and think about using some cheat codes to balance. Sad, because the story tale and the universe created are both great

This Entire Series, is one of the greatest games of all time. IF you played games in the "golden age" of gaming and never played this gem, do yourself a favor and buy platinum edition, play it IN ORDER and then do the same with gold edition and its expansions.
