Самая любимая игра!
Играл с детства, первая часть Age of Wonders по сравнению с третей мне больше нравится.
1. В ней 12 рас что обычно очень редко встречаются в играх.
2. Классная атмосфера.
3. Графика по сравнению с играми тех лет хорошая.
4. Классная анимация заклинаний.
5. Заклинания по физики тоже не отстают, есть такие эффекты как заморозка, отравление, порча и т.д.
6. Можно держать много юнитов в одном отряде, а именно 8, что на 2 больше чем в третей часе.
7. При нападении с разных сторон противник оказывается в середине(А не как в третей части перед тобой).
8. У нежити есть смерть с косой.
9. Приятно исследовать данжи, чувствуешь какой-то эпик от того что вся карта не видна.
10. И конечно же музыка которая мне очень нравится, надеюсь и вам тоже понравится!
12. Одновременные ходы на карте мира (то есть, все игроки ходят одновременно).
1.1 Единственный минус игры это недоступность нормальной сетевой игры (но это может компенсировать игра за одним компом).
Просто 100 из 100.

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.

This game is a hidden gem. Not so famous as HoMaM series but definitely with all important mechanics that could make a good game. RPG system for heroes, unit gaining XP and bonuses, magic in battles and magic for overland campaign, magic items from dungeons, city development, multi level maps, siege engines, ship combat, air combat, hell even ships vs. dragon combat is possible :D ....name it you get it. The combat system is easy to understand yet allows quite complex strategies.

The AoW2 is better in many aspects (or they managed to polish almost all aspects to perfectness) yet I cannot help myself but have to love feeling and immersion of AoW1. Music, simplistic graphics and campaign maps which could take a lot of time to explore and scout every possible part,dungeon..Yet the size is not overkill as in AoW2 where some maps are literally huge even by my standards.

Back in the day I somehow skipped on Heroes of MnM 3 and picked up this instead. It's a charming little turn-based strategy game where you control small squads of individual units (unlike the stacks in HoMM) and can move unit groups without a hero attached.

The game is admittedly simpler than HoMM when it comes to depth and strategy and features a couple of exploits that can turn it into easy-mode cheese but it was an entertaining and beautiful romp nonetheless.

The soundtrack by Michiel van den Bos is also quite amazing, especially considering it was Impulse Tracker orchestral tunes.
