If you don't mind outdated games definitely play this and Shadow Magic, the Age of Wonders games are the best of this type of strategy game, much better than any heroes of might and magic game or even Civ despite the fact that they've been continuing to release content while Age of Wonders hasn't for over 10 years (Age of Wonders 3 is now in developement though). It has a hex tile map with turn based movement and a battle mode that takes you into a seperate map like in heroes of might and magic but much MUCH better, it even takes into account unit fatigue, morale, experience and the angle and distance at which they attack (obstacles like walls and rocks you have to shoot over reduce chances of projectiles hitting).

Sidenote: For anyone having crash issues, this is an old game, disable direct 3d and directsound to eliminate crashing, run on compatibility mode if it makes you feel any better. You can set resolution all the way up, the main menu and the intro video will still be tiny for some reason but once you're actually in game everything will be the right size.

This game is one of the best of it's genre I have played. You should definatley buy it if your into turn based strategy games. It has a good storyline to it that will keep you into the game for long sessions. And if you get bored with that then there's skirmish mode to indulge in.
The actual gameplay, though quite challenging, is really good. You can choose a start race from a wide range of fantasy races, and you don't even have to stick with them! You can change to some other race, or even be both, or all three, or all of them if you have enough diplomatic might to prevent them from squabbling.
All in all, this is a really great game.

If like me you enjoy a classic turn based rpg strategy, this may be the game for you.. upon playing this against the NPC you'll soon discover even on the easiest difficulty the bots will give you a hard time, this has a slight learning curve but once you get to grips with the game and can survive 100 turns, you'll be engrossed in the game and with each turn! How you play is entirely up to you, use diplomacy to your advantage..how about tradeing? maybe bribe? Or just annihalate anyone with a army of your choice. Good game overall, and fun to play i rate 7.5/10

skip this one as shadow magic is the same game but better. (shadow warriors and the shadow dimension) awesome game though. shame the next standalone eliminates the need for it.
