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.

This is a good game. Do you like Turn Based Strategy games or play tabletop Warhammer back home? Well I didn't either, but suddenly -- after letting myself enough time to understand this in depth fantasy world -- I started to feel like this game was a home. And suddenly I become addicted beyond measure. No... addiction is a cruel world for this mistress... I would say that the hours that can be whisked away playing Age of Wonders is a true seduction of honor.

Expect the random map games to make you wonder where your day went. Expect grandest campaigns to last days. Fronts will be strategized, politics will be blumbered, and battles are fought to every fantasy wonder you could dream. This is an age of wonders!

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.
