“"In my opinion, the best part about this game is that it’s not free-to-play. Pay once and have fun; no boosters and no race for better items to get ahead of other players."”
Gamers Sphere

“Legends of Callasia hits all the right marks and is shaping up to be something really rather special indeed.”
Alpha Beta Gamer

“The art of the game is simple yet vibrant and resembles the maps of board games. A definite old school theme emanates from the aesthetics. The maps, cards, and portraits of heroes are all well drawn and definitely accentuate the quality of the game. The music has a medieval high-fantasy feel to it, and the sound effects of attacks and such are well done. The visuals and sounds are definitely polished and make the game feel so much better, even in the pre-beta stage.”
Haogamers

Take a game of Risk, add some fantastical settings and creatures, throw in some powerful cards to use against your enemies, and you get Legends of Callasia. The latest full platform release from Boomzap Entertainment is a detailed, colorful strategy game with a smooth learning curve.

Set in a fairly traditional fantasy world, Legends of Callasia takes its roots in the form of long standing games, like Risk, and Magic: the Gathering, and blends them in to something new, yet familiar. You can take control of a single faction in either a skirmish versus AI opponents, 3 sizable campaigns, or go online against up to 7 other players.

Whichever game type you choose, you go on to find yourself at a starting point with a hero or two and a few starting units on one of Legends of Callasia's colorful maps. Game play is turn based, but surprisingly fast paced. Legends doesn't ask you to do too much resource management. There's no taxes, or upkeep, or menu upon menu, upon sub menu to go through each turn. On the surface this may seem like there is not much depth to tenured strategy players, but it does make the game move quickly, and things can change on the map just as quick.

The only things you really manage are your income, keeping your land, and upgrading your towns and keeps enough to order up higher level troops, and increase your unit cap. Every territory you get can hold either a forts or a town. You need to balance what you build on each territory as although towns provide more income, you can only recruit troops at forts. Each of these can be upgraded to increase your income, population cap, and at forts your ability to hire better troops. Building all your forts too far away from your front-line can mean long trips back and forth to restock troops, as they can only move while accompanied by a general.

You can aid in this movement by building portals that will transfer your Hero and his troops across the map to any other owned portal at the cost of that units turn. The downside of course is that each territory can only support one building type, so you need to plan ahead, especially in larger campaigns if you don't want to leave yourself exposed.

Skirmish mode lets you take on up to 7 AI players in a rush to either destroy each other and take over the land, or accumulate enough points before the final turn. Skirmishes are quick and sweet. You can easily get through a game in under an hour. Multiplayer works similarily and it's nice that you don't have to commit too much time to any one game.

The campaign of Legends of combines skirmish style play, with various objectives that can change throughout the course of a single map. You'll also be thrown various choices of aligning with other factions during each battle, though I did find these choices more or less redundant as I was not often given much context to them, and I usually wasn't allowed to look around the map and access before making a decision. This left me with usually just clicking the first option and seeing how it turned out.

Campaign

In campaign mode, you choose one of three factions, the Hundred Kingdoms, the Faeborne, or The Revenant. You'll also encounter various Orchish clans during your fight for supremacy. Each faction has it's own set of heroes at it's disposal, and you'll unlock more as you play. These heroes are your generals in battle, and the only way to move troops around the map. Each has a unique class and traits that come with it, as well as unique cards that can be used either for offence, defense or to better your kingdom. You gain cards randomly throughout each game mode, and they can be used contextually for a small amount of money, or can be sold back at face value if you can't use them.

Cards add a significant amount of strategy to the game, as higher value cards can instantly swing the momentum. An oncoming superior army can be slowed by dropping a card that summons a horrifying beast, or neutral army to fight them. You can perhaps supplement your own troops by instantly recruiting reinforcements. Certain cards will also build improvements on your territories, or give you boosts in income, offence or defense. The right card, played at the right time can make a big difference.

As you play through the campaign you can skip back and forth between any factions' available maps. Each faction also comes with it's own set of troop types, for which you can 4 of any kind at a time in any army. Balancing melee fighters, with ranged troops, and hard hitting elite troops is necessary in each army. Though there is a lot of variety in the troops, I did find that there wasn't a very tangible difference from one faction to another besides for the look of the troop cards, and for a few of the playable cards you receive.

The campaign should last you a good 30-40 hours. The story is relatively light, and easy to follow. It doesn't distract much from the gameplay, but it also wasn't intriguing enough that I wanted to hurry to the next map to find out what happens next.

Combat is simplified in Legends of Callasia. Your troop cards attack based off of attack type and any specific bonuses they have. You've really fought each battle ahead of time by checking your foe's cards, and making sure your compliment of troops matches up well. This makes battles go by fast, and keeps up the quick pace of the game. You can bring multiple heroes into play in each battle, and they can go for several turns in the case of larger troop battles. Every movement choice into battle gives you a quick preview as to your odds. These can change suddenly however with the right cards played during the same turn. Combat begins whenever you enter into a territory with non-allied units, though your enemies may still get a chance to move their troops away if there turn falls after yours.

The map size, and limited unit resources mean you need to take precautions whenever you make a move, as enemy units can pass freely through undefended territories, potential sacking your towns behind your borders.

Visually Legends of Callasia is a ton of fun to look at. The stylized map and characters are well drawn, detailed and very colorful. Small touches on the game map like interactive clouds and birds that swoop across your screen, and can be clicked on for a quick, fun animation show the attention to detail. The UI and everything on screen is easy to read, and accessible.

Overall Legends of Callasia is a fun, fast paced strategy game. It doesn't overwhelm with it's depth, but in some cases this is a boon as you can complete a quick match with friends in a realistic time, not spending days back and forth taking turns. The game is easy to learn, and very accessible, but it's turn based style adds just enough dimension that during certain points of a battle you'll need to make careful decisions with your unit selection and movement. Multiplayer is definitely the best part of Legends gameplay, as although the campaign and AI do offer some challenge, the story and factions are fairly irrelevant and there's no comparison to playing a real, live player, or players across a sprawling map. Legends of Callasia is a good offering for someone looking for a light, quick gaming session against friends. There is just enough content to explain Legends' price point, but luckily you can also download a fully playable demo that offers several hours of play for free.

pros:
fun to play
heroes/generals have different passives/abilities
feels like a mix of risk and talisman

cons:
cant play ranked in free version
not many ppl playing
unable to know if more ppl are playing on ranked because option is greyed out in free
dont really want to pay $25 for something im only interested in playing pvp when theres no one to play against online

what to improve:
more kingdoms, like orc, dwarves when u buy the game is fine
ranked for free players
maybe option to make champion/general portrait/circle thing bigger to see better
an incentive to play pve AND pvp like gain credits to buy/gain new champion/generals and flag/designs, make play custom theme song others will hear when defeat another champion/general a la apb reloaded.
coop story mode
coop versus mode no alliance making/ breaking

I write this because i like the game and want to see it do better ^_^

it's more like simplified strategic game in fantasy setting.
You are hiring heroes, getting gold, countering more land (to increase army size), upgrade land and try to eliminate enemy. On top of that there is card system, where cards can affect gameplay in interesting ways.

Player can control 4 heroes that have one action per turn. There are 3 factions with variety of units, but I don't find many differences between units or factions themselves.

Battles are played automatically (ranged, then melee) and can be played over a couple of turns (that's quite interesting feature actually!). Same goes for sieges (couple of turns),

Overall I like this design - looks simple, but offers many options and tactics. If Age of Fear ever gets strategic view it will be something similar to that.

Note:
Game is not free to play. After first mission, you need to activate game for 25USD.

Had a good time the first few hours and bought the full game shortly after launch but unfortunately it gets very repetitive after those initial first few hours.

My reason for thumbing it down is because I do not support the following actions of the developer:
Bought the game for 20% off because of launch sale in the first week. Not even a month later it gets 40% off because of summer sale... I kinda feel ripped off. I can understand that a game gets cheaper over time and during sales but within a month of launch? Really...?

There's some other stuff too like in the beginning how they promoted the game as a f2p game which was actually just a demo with an in-game purchase for the full game with DLC to be added later on and how, a few days after early access launch (apparently, this game has been in EA for longer than I thought...), they went out of early access but with still quite some things to do (the game really should've stayed in EA longer in my opinion).

These might be small points but all things considered, I left with a bad aftertaste...

If you like Risk and similar map conquest strategy games this one is for you. I highly recommend this game! The best part of the game is simultaneous turn based multiplayer!!!! (now if only total war had made a mode like that)

Hail lords and Ladies

This game is amazing and I encourage you all to install the demo play through the campaigns and then get in on some multiplayer fun.

At first glimse it looks and feels mostly like playing Risk with more depth. At first the learning curve may appear to be overwhelming but trust me if you take the time to play through the free demo you will soon get the jist of things fairly fast.
There is alot of really good things to say about this game and its definately a step forward for those strategy game lovers who are wanting something casual but competitive at the same time.

Pros

PLenty of depth a great feel and easy to get use to when handling your heroes and troops.
Great community which is slowly growing and in time will provide for a solid multiplayer base.
Gameplay is solid and at this point is well polished and very playable with few bugs to note.
Multiplayer is where this game starts to really shine community and players fight battles and create for epic games.
Devs are involved with the community and are supportive.

Cons

Combat can be tough for new players as you get your huge forces wiped by more seasoned players... however ask them why you got wiped ive seen the veterans explain how the combat lines work and most players are really helpful and will give you tips on how to improve.

Sales alot of people have had trouble purchasing this game during the summer sale myself included. the devs have promised to rectify this in the coming days so please no more bad reviews on the sale the shop was broke and it in no way reflects the game itself however i know people like to see things working when you pay those dollar bills.

Lobby is not the best its hard to have good chats with people due to a pretty basic lobby. Players would like to be able to make a game and still advertise games for people to join while at the same time seeing who is actually active in a lobby. I suggest the devs take a look at this area becos in truth the lobby needs to feel like a tavern where people can chat in groups without disturbing everyone but also inviting enough so that new players can meet vets and ask questions. People hate waiting for a game to start with nothing to do so a lobby that is inviteing and gives players waiting would be a great idea to improve the building of a gaming community.

Matchmaking option would be cool where players can enter as a 2v2 1v1 3v 3 4v4 of course this will work better once we have 500 players looking for a game at present on a good night we have 10 -20 and most nights 4-10 the community is growing but like i said until the lobby is a good place to wait most will be afk


Buy the game it is def worth the moeny and the replayablilty is spot on.

Would love to see a toolset version of this game so players can make user created maps and units

then we can get a civ type or game of thrones mod going and avoid all the red tape.. . Just like lord of the rings total war and crusader kings game of thrones mod ... I definately believe that the strategy community would just go nuts on this game with the ability to mod like other games. User created content is definately the future for strategy gamers as those games which have generated this have sold far better then most other games.

Hope to see you on the battlefield

Enjoyable game. Simple but complex. For those having trouble purchasing the game after doing the demo, there is a workaround. Buy the game as a gift and add it to your inventory rather than gifting to another person. Then assign the gift to yourself and the game will update as the full version.

If you're reading this before July 4, buy it now! It's 40% off for the Summer Sale so what are you waiting for?

Think of Risk with an injection of Age of Wonders, with updated gameplay but reasonable graphics and file size. Though the turn-based gameplay and micromanagement may seem a bit much for people who are not used to this genre, this is still perfectly casual-friendly, so give it a try!

As someone who plays games on an ancient (broken fan, integrated graphics) laptop, I often have to struggle with lag because of graphics and memory constraints. So far this game has not posed any problems for me. It's also clear on the description that this is only a free demo, and thus you will still have to pay for the rest of the campaign and features, but it's definitely worth the money!

I like this game, but I've no intention of purchasing it through steam as I have no faith in Valve as a corporation to provide even half way decent customer service. Its a real shame, as this games demo was quite fun. When I have 20 bucks to drop I'll see if I can find it on GoG.com or somewhere else. I dont know if the developer only sales through steam, I hope not.
