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.”

Haven't played much, but it looks and feels like the old Warcraft 3 RTS series. Will update this when I figure out if it's better or worse than WC3

When I started playing Spellforce The Order of Dawn, I absolutely loved the story line, characters and lore. However, the quests , item stats and character/map graphics left much to be desired. These flaws have been very much fixed in Spellforce 2. Although the story was not as good as in Spellforce 1, it still sucks you in and drives you to play trough the whole campaign. The multiplayer would be enjoyable if there where more players, and if the resources would slowely regenerate as they did in Spellforce 1. This way they could be protected, adding more tactics to the game. The talent trees have been overhauled as well, forcing you to choose a certain path, which was not the case in Spellforce 1. All in all I would recommend it mainly because of the story, lore and character designs.

What an awsome game. If you like classic RTS games this is a must have for strategy lovers out there. The story mode is okay for starters, but the part I enjoyed the most was the skirmish battels between me and the computer 1 on 1.

good game overall. getts boring after about 3 hours of legit gameplay tho. was hopping to spice it up with some cheating and modding. found that to be a headache and found out the community and devs are generaly faggs about modification and extremly defensive about the removal of console commands. multiplayer is cheatable but still best played with people you know. was generaly dissapointed with this game and it's community and forums. if you like warcraft 2 and 3 you MAY like this game. But be prepaired for strict gameplay with little varriance to the RPG element. overall 4/10 no buy under 1$ i spent over 4$

This is an amazing game, it has a very attractive gameplay, many skills to choose from, this is the 3rd time I play it and I never got bored, the company did a great job :D

But it has an annoying camera bug sometimes, even with a patch it didn't work for me :/ , but I found out that pressing space very fast and choosing choices fast can help.

While the first Spellforce was a good game as well, the second part improves in every aspect and feels much more polished and modern.
Especially the role-playing part has been vastly developed, and offers real character developement now.
Additionaly, the whole game-mechanics have been overworked and optimized, resulting in a more fluid and comfortable experience, and of course, the graphics, especially character textures, have been improved as well.
And finally, the second game is still in developement, the last addon has been released only a few month ago.

Definitely recommended!

I liked this game, but the only frustrating thing is the lack of auto save, so remember to SAVE often! Once I played all the wy through two battles without saving and my main character died. Then I ended up rage quiting in frustration since I lost at least that many hours to gameplay. Otherwise, this is a great game if you like RPGs with a mix of RTS.

Hybrids of game genres never quite seem to strike it right, but Spellforce 2 is one of those rare exceptions; fixing most of the problems suffered by the original, both its RPG and RTS elements are now considerably more enjoyable and the graphical presentation finally makes the game a serious contender amongst some stiff competition.Spellforce 2 combines the best features of the fantasy RPG and RTS worlds, from strong character development, to massive, resource driven battles-all strewn across gorgeous landscapes. Throw in a wealth of online options-most notably cooperative play-and you have sleeper hit in the making.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.This game is sure to satisfy action-RPG gamers.

This is a interesting mix of RTS and dungen crawler (even though it is more linear than most dungeon crawlers) where most of the time you will control a little party of 4 or 5 characters. The RTS part is really limited, but still most of the game is really fun. It has a REALLY elaborated plot, one of thouse plots that make a gamer like me go online searching for more about the story. I just didn't end this game because it is really really long (what I guess is a good thing). At some point of the game I already had some of the best items and most skills but the story just wouldn't come to an end.

The biggest flaws in here is the RTS part of game, that is really limited and simplistic, and specially the fact that that the game is quite buggy (some major bugs might even prevent you from continuing some quests).

The best part of it is the plot and the combat system. It's kind of hard at first, but once you get used to this different combat mechains you will really enjoy it.

Hours upon hours of fun co-operative quest driven missions ontop of a brilliantly told story. One very under rated game!

Not as good as Spellforce 1, but it is still a beautiful game.

Storywise, Shadow Wars is both good and bad. I didn't like the boss, but the journey was okay. Dragon Wars part was a lot better, especially because it continues the story even further - with the knowledge from Spellforce 1, too.

They have blended the genres in a most excellent way, making this game a pure joy to game. Sure there is a few bugs as well as sudden crashes but as long as you keep in mind to save often, it becomes a minor issue. The journey through the game is long, and the stories being told is intresting, making it a game that will keep you occupied for quite some time.

Beautiful sequel with improved game mechanics. If you liked Spellforce 1 you will also enjoy this one.

Unfortunately the story is not as good as in Spellforce 1 and they combined the different races into three different alliances, limiting the amount of titans to just three. I can't deny that I missed summoning three titans at once to strengthen my army, but the new titans are well designed and very strong. Seeing that they can turn the tides of a battle gives you sweet satisfaction or despair if it's the enemy ;-)

I like the new hero system. They abandoned the rune system and give you permanent fellows instead, which you can skill to your own liking, at least to some point. A simple base orientation is forced upon them to keep the story consistency. Sadly they cut down the magic spells a little bit and removed all permanent auras.
Something important that I almost forgot; they added mounted and flying units granting you more strategical possibilities, unfortunately they don't have massive dis-/advantages over other unit types, like it is the case in The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth. Of course there are counterunits, but no real annhilators. (Damn I loved to run down some goblins with my Rohirims, but those phalanx carrier were really scary^^)
For those of you, who got tired of all the walking in Spellforce 1, fear not Spellforce 2 is much better in this matter.

The addon is also worth playing and comes with a fourth playable faction.
In conclusion: You should play this game, I'm certain you will enjoy it, even if you still prefer Spellforce 1, that's what I do.
