Awesome hex-based Civ-Like strategy game. However combat can be played out on a 1 to 1 level, so it's not group vs group luck like Civ is. Honestly this game is everything you could hope for, difficult and rewarding.

Having never played it when it first came out, this was a wonderful turn-based, RTS/RPG experience! If you are looking for a fantasy strategy game that will run on just about any device with a screen, then I recommend this one.

This game has a dated UI, and has a poor first impression, but when you really dive into the game, you'll find out its one of the greatest games ever made. A true gem.

Loved this game years ago. Finaly bought it on steam because good turn based strategy games are hard to comeby these days. I recommend this game only if you are okay with playing in windowed mode as there is no option for fullscreen. I have not played a match on steam yet, mostly because I hate playing in windowed mode so I have no information on actual game play. Warning for those wanted to play multiplay: when I played this game years ago it had terrible issues with desynchronizing and crashing. Just a heads up.
To be perfectly honest I will probably never launch this game again since AoW3 is out. I own this game out of nostalgia, so I cannot recommend this to nonAoW / TBS fans.

The slew of compatability issues tarnish what was a very fun game in it's time. If you have a newer PC, go buy a $10 lottery ticket, you've got better odds of getting something out of it.

The AI can see everything on the map. This means your scout unit will get ambushed and killed while you're trying to get the map revealed. It also means the AI will quickly move in to take an undefended city. This means that taking risky gambles will also never pay off, and it slows everything down as you'll either be producing throw away scouts or exploring with an armies.

I love this game, and I think that it is a great game for people to play if they have time. The only reason people do not like this game is simply that it's not there kind of game. Its biggest flaw is that it can't attract many people, but i think that the people who like the game really like the game. Overall I give it a 7.5 in my "book" thats a good game. But what do I know I'm 12 years old.

If you don't mind outdated games definitely play this and Shadow Magic, the Age of Wonders games are the best of this type of strategy game, much better than any heroes of might and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

Excellent game, simple to play and difficult to let go. One more turn... ok this one is really my last one... this one will be my last one... no this one is... And next thing you know, the sun is beginning to rise.

Excellent turn-based strategy game. Very remniscient of the Heroes of Might and Magic series, although with more possibilitis of controling the individual troops. Timeless graphics and soundtrack that will envelop you.

It's a great game, but unfortunatelly this version has a lot ot compatibility issues and crashes too often. For example, I can't even zoom out the map, because when I try to do it - the game crashes. Plus, lots of over isses. If not for that, the game is a must have.

If you want to learn about this game this video is only gameplay footage and will tell/show you everything you need to know about it. It's basically a look at what you'll be playing and takes out all the reviewer fluff that they like to throw in.

Rediculously hard for new players, the actual functions are quick to master if you pay attention but the enemy even on the easiest difficulty are seriously overpowering. A good buy for those who like to play turn based stratergy and are willing to put in the hours to master the difficult combat handicaps.

Not for the feint of heart.
