Bereiten Sie sich auf ein Abenteuer vor, in welchem Sie antike Artefakte, wundervolle magische Kräfte und Geheimnisse eines zerrütteten Reiches entdecken werden. Schließen Sie sich mit den Kräften des Lichts oder der Dunkelheit zusammen und bestimmten Sie das Schicksal der Welt von World of Wonders!

Age of wonders kann ich nur empfelen da man viel Fantasy für wenig Geld bekommt.

Auch in diesem Teil sind viele Features schon enthalten wie z.B. -jedes Volk hat seine Vor- und Nachteile
-Individuelles Skillsystem für den Helden

Kleine Sachen die ich zu Bemängeln habe sind:-Die Nutzbarkeit des Geländes es verschefft im Kampf nicht wirklich Vor- oder Nachteile.
-das Tutorial ist ein wenig mager aber das Spiel ist eigentlich selbsterklärend.

Schlussfolgernd:
Mit "Age of Wonders" konnte ich mir das Geld für "Age of wonders III" sparen.

This game. Just incredible. As far as the game goes, I have no bad things to say, I could go on for DAYS about the in depth stratedy and awesome unit variance, and the map editor...ughghghg, it's literally just too good...however...

WHY DOESN'T THIS WORK FOR WINDOWS 10??

If you have windows 10, I cannot recommend this game, I have had nothing but problems. I have to bust out the old laptop to be able to play this game.

Anyone else have the same problems?

For now I've played only this title of the Age of Wonders' series.
The lore seems a bit flat, but it's pretty convincing, I won't spoil it, I think you must only know that you can play the campaign mode with two different factions with a complete different story, I've played with the Keepers of Peace (the good one) and I liked it.

The gameplay it's faster than what might be expected, besides the game allow you to do automatic battles or explore the area and do a strategic battle (I recommend this for dungeons).

The soundtracks of the various levels are not so spectacular, but they can give a perfect atmosphere, unlike the graphic impact, it's spectacular in every aspect.


This game appear like an experiment (maybe for me), but it is really full of surprises! I'm trembling from desire to play the following titles!!!

Clearly an old game, but still thrilling. I have to admit, Age of Wonders II is the better game, it is superior in many ways to his ancestor, especially when it comes to battles. But the first game of the AoW series still has his moments, the story is more beautiful, the races are rich in variety and the music is my absolute favourite video game soundtrack ever made. Of course, I put on rose-colored glasses, because one of the first games I ever played makes me nostalgic, but I recommend it not just to the few original players, but also to the people who love turn-based strategy fantasy games with role play charakter. Have fun with an old classic.

I really don't understand how this game could have scored so many positive reviews. They are probably all from people who don't know the original games this one is a pale copy from. If you want some good turn-based strategy, stick to Heroes of Might and Magic 3, or try Masters of Magic.
Ok, now, what is my problem with this game? It really doesn't take long to explain: it just lacks content. It gets boring after few hours. Not only is there nothing I haven't seen before in other games, there are also missing many elements that make other games interesting. For example, there are only two(!) ressources, mana and gold. All upgrades to your cities only produce units, there are no other boons (like, gaining items, some ressources or boosts to hero stats). The AI is rather stupid, even after a few hours of playing it's totally simple to win fights with few losses even when you're outnumbered. The diplomacy screen is a joke, you can't even trade technologies (i.e. spells).
I have to admit that I haven't played long enough to see even a fraction of the spells available, those might still cut it. I'll play on a bit (though bored already) and if they do, I might change my review.

tl;dr Yes, but with a warning below.

Age of Wonders, despite the age, is still a worthwhile game. It can appear deceptively simple at first, but as you begin to chip away at the abilities and magic system, you realise just how important deeper knowledge of the game mechanics can be.

A lot of the game has been covered by other reviewers. Essentially: turn based fantasy strategy game with empire management. Unlike the sequels - and many other games of its type - in Age of Wonders if your leader dies, you lose the game. This adds an extra layer of risk - your leader is powerful and can take down many basic units, but one wrong move and the game's over. It can sound cheap, but it really puts the stress on in major battles, something other strategy games miss out on. There is an option to remove this for the skirmishes, if you're not keen on it.

THE WARNING: this game, as it sits on Steam, is faulty. It crashes a lot - A LOT. Some people are fine, but looking at the reviews and the forums, it's wide spread enough for it to be an issue. You can fix this with a Hex editor. Now, I know some basic fixes are acceptable, but having to use a hex editor to fix the game is not. I imagine a lot of people out there don't know what a hex editor is, or how to even use one. Furthermore, I don't see any reason why this can't be done on the developers end - it took me two minutes, and would save everyone else a lot of headache.

Anyway, if you know what you're doing, this thread has the instructions: http://steamcommunity.com/app/61500/discussions/0/864973123853580717/

I very nearly put this as a thumbs down, but the cheap price, brilliant gameplay, and the fact that a fix is available - courtesy of the fan base (which, by the way, provide more maps and content than you'll ever manage to get through), I really can't bring myself to do it.

Thumbs up, only just, though.

Age of Wonders and its sequels remains the best of the Master of Magic heirs. The game has a number of races to play, two campaigns with branching points, tactical combat, magic systems and customizable characters. Its citybuilding is simplified, however. I'd recommend it and the rest of its family to people looking for a fantasy 4X style game though at this point they are all a bit dated and are not without frustrating gameplay aspects. But they are inexpensive and still enjoyable. I'd recommend this until something newer comes along to topple it, and so far nothing that I've played has.

I bought this game mainly due to nostalgia, having played it shortly after it came out in 1999. I knew beforehand there would be some frustration thanks to lacking quality of life improvements we are now accustomed to in modern games.

I gave it a shot nevertheless and I'm happy I did it. Sure, it can at times be cumbersome and tiring, especially when the enemy AI sends a lone dwarf across the otherwise impassable mountains to conquer the gold mines in your backyard. *shakes fist*
But the gameplay overall was fun. Leveling up your heroes, selecting their new skills and equipping them with loot from the dungeons and haunted ruins you occasionally encounter is what made me love this game all those years ago. And it's still great.

This game is not for everyone, I know, and it might be an acquired taste. But I immensely enjoyed playing through it once more.

TLDR: Get it.

More specifically:

I'd never heard of Age of Wonders before getting this game with AoW 2 and AoW: Shadow Magic during a big sale not too long ago. For $2, I was not expecting much - and was absolutely blown away when I started it up and discovered an enormously complex and well-developed game hidden behind such a low pricetag. The dated graphics might be a turn-off to some, but unjustly so; the game itself holds up masterfully against its current-gen counterparts.

Some might be tempted to call this a 4X strategy game in the vein of Civilization, but that was not what I personally found to be the case. Yes, you're on a tiled map with cities and armies marching around, but that's about where the similarities end. Things like city management and upkeep are extremely reduced: cities provide you with money and can build units, and you can upgrade them to unlock additional tiers of units. No city upkeep, no taxes, city size doesn't change, and happiness is basically a factor of whether you're playing as a "good," "evil," or "neutral" faction (good likes good, evil likes evil, neutral's indifferent to everyone). It's simple and keeps the focus on what the game is really all about, which is capturing territory.

Here the game starts to feel like Starcraft or Warcraft, but turn-based. Each turn, you get a certain amount of gold, and you have to decide how you're going to balance spending between teching up (unlocking better late-game stuff), fortifying cities, and producing armies. Exploring the map is a necessity; that's the only way you'll find mines and farms to supplement your income and acquire more cities to boost production. Fighting happens when one player moves an army onto the same hex as an enemy army, at which point not only those two armies, but all adjacent armies as well, get ported to a small-scale tactical map. Tactical combat is fun and, at least agains the AI, smaller companies can take down big stacks if they're managed properly.

The major drawback some people might find is that certain units are absurdly strong relative to their counterparts in other factions (the Orc Red Dragon, for example). Much of this strength comes from the fact that hitting units is RNG-based. For lower-tier units, there's very little unpredictability, but when archers are shooting at a dragon, it can take a long time before one of them lands a hit - or it can happen right away. High-level hero units with high defense present a similar problem, and going up against them usually requires some contingency prep work in case RNG is unkind. It's manageable, but some might find it a turn-off.

There's much more to discover in the game than what I've laid out here, but hopefully this gives people an idea of what to expect. All in all, it's fun to play alone, the campaign is massive and satisfying, and there's hot seat and play-by-email multiplayer for those who want more. Highly recommend this game.

A great table top style fantasy war game with role-playing elements. Dated graphics to be sure but the unit artwork is immersive as are unit descriptions. I always play as the good guys but you have the option of playing as the evil ones if so desired. Keep your display at 1028 x 760 or 800 x 600 or the units get very tiny. If you like turn-based strategy games you will love this one. 9/10.

Music is some of the best ever for fantasy setting.

Considering that age of wonders 3 is out now, you may think that skipping this title and going on to a bigger brighter game might be a good idea, but then you would miss out on the diamond that started this series. This game is a strategic/tactical game that really has the power to draw you in with its unique armies and keeps you playing due to the overwelming number of strategies, tactics, and options at your disposal. Be prepared for anything as each upgrade you learn about will seem even more overpowered than the last and be amazed at how well this old school AI keeps up with the varied options at your command.

I guess what I am getting at is, if you think you like turn based strategy games, give this game a shot. You won't be sorry.

Very fun game, addicting for those who like Strategy and RPG games.

Has a few bugs and sometimes crashes, but the auto-save function works really well and I never lost any progress with the crashes.

For those who enjoy this type of game its a must play.

I give a 8/10 just because the gameplay could be better, tho you couldnt really ask much more at the time.
