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.

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.

Good, basic turn-based strategy game. Some of the features haven't aged especially well, but it has still retained a certain charm despite the dated graphics and game systems.

Despite of the "low" graphic, this game is still great. :) If you missed this game, I highly recommend you to try it out before playing the Age of wonders 3 .

This is a classic turnbased strategy game. Not sure what to say, I hate turn based games but I love this game. Back in the days I used to play the demo for ages, sadly time went on and the installation disc got bad over the years. I'm happy that Steam took this game in, feels good to have it back.
I'm not going to give the game a real score since I haven't completed the "story" nor anything elsi, I have just been doing skirmish games.

I love this game! One of the bests for me. Great strategy game with fantasy and rpg themes. It has singleplayer/multiplayer/singleplayer-campaign and you can play "classic style turns" or "simultaneous". You are represented by the lord of your people and can not let him die. Your character levelup like any good RPG, and his people too. You can choose abilities and powers from a big list to customize your character and make him a good fighter, mage, or ranged attacker... This game offers 12 fantasy races really cool to play. The look is clean and simple. This comes with a map editor too for those who like it. Also this game has female portraits for girls. Negative side: AI is very stuppid and need to "cheat" to be challenger! It has few official big maps with only "after the fall" really nice for 12 players. Some units are unbalanced and schools of magic too. The cities do not have many improvements to make. And the worst is: the game crashs some times. For me the downside does not overcome the positive. Sadly games 2 and 3 of this franchise does not have the same qualities. I support a remake of this game with modern graphics.

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.

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.

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.

Turn base strategy with traces of luck during combat. It's classic. Can customize and build your characters. Multiple endings depending on your choices of allies. Overall an entertaining game if you don't mind the old graphics. Still doesn't look too bad.

So this game is HARD! That being said I find the interface the most difficult to get around then the game it's self. You build up squad's of 8 and take them around the map sacking cities and destroying the enemy. Also you have to keep your towns guarded and income in check. It's a old school game that's worth a pick up if you like the RTS\Sim style.
