In this game, I spent my childhood and I really happy that this legendary turn-based strategy is in Steam.
All lovers of old-school strategies, join it.

This game is as fun as the old Heroes of Might & Magic series or Disciples. I think it's very underrated. Deserves much more popularity...

I can tell you why I should hate this game. It's dated, AI can be a right bint, I don't like Fantasy and finally, Fairy's..... The sound they make is unbearable. Always giggling, like their hiding something...

But somehow this game is like crack. It aint good, it aint pretty and it's defiantly not going to do you justice in the long run, but its simply amazing.

Really subtle and smart game play mechanics, you've got to prioritize early on what you want to do, to get the edge over the AI. Really got to understand what each unit is capable of and what all the different status perks mean (there's one dude who can just phase himself out of the games material plain... makes no sense but meh!). Also the Hero system is done really well. They appear kinda randomly and you can give them war gear to basically help you're armies achieve victories on the battlefield. Some of the hero profiles are very humours as well. We once had a guy called bromon or gromos, dude was death in one ear, ♥♥♥♥ing useless dirty ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. But after a lot of TLC (Tender Loving Care) he became the stallion of the land and once took on a whole cities defence when his whole platoon died (he was up against 13 units and ♥♥♥♥ me I nearly had a brain aneurism).

All in all, this is a really gay/happy fantasy, with an awesome soundtrack and in depth game play mechanics for its time. Also there's a giant bird unit whose special ability is "Toss". I'll leave it to your imagination.

Props again to my friend Red for gifting me this game. I'm actually going to make this review for Age of Wonders II, and this game as well...

The Age of Wonders series is a classic all-time favorite of mine in the case of the two, a challenging and enchanting strategy 4X game with spells, dragons, warriors, armies, everything. It allows you to personalize what kind of wizard you want to play as, how hard the enemies are, the setting you want to fight in, etc.. Haven't played through the campaigns fully for either, though. Nontheless, Age of Wonders II: The Wizard's Throne, and it's Expansion-turned-sequel, Shadow Magic, are games that Fantasy and Strategy fans alike will be spellbound by. Shadow Magic also definately took what AoWII had, and did some improving touch ups on it but still made sure not to fix what isn't broke. But still tried some different things with new additions for bonuses and tactics. Such as looping the limited production queue if you want to build an army, but the production que is overflown.

For both nostalgia and quality related reasons, an impressive 9/10 to both games.

My elves rebelled against me because I have too many goblins in my nation, clearly this game advocates racism, and encourages only having one, unified, white race. Incidently it is also sexist, somehow.

I can't stand playing this sexist, racist, anti-american trash. This game corrupts our youth to burn the flag and give up our guns to make way for "peace" and "commerce", clearly a product of Al Qaeda and if you even consider yourself a true american, you should burn this game at the stake and demand censorship.

Game is also very very fun and I can not stop playing, totally recommend buying it

This is a great game for strategy game fans. It has all the aspects of a quality strategy game, and I have enjoyed my experience with it thoroughly. Although, I think that those who aren't too big on games like Civ and Age of Empires will find this game boring, and should steer in a different direction. If you plan on buying the previous games in this series, know that this is by far the most polished and enjoyable. If you love strategy games like I do, you will have fun with the whole series. But if you simply like to play an hour or two every few days of strategy-based games I recommend only buying Age of Wonders: Shadow Magic. Overall, this is a great game and those of you who enjoy strategy RPGs will have a blast playing this game.

I unfortunately cannot get into 4x games like this, and that is sad because this is a legit good game, i cant give much actual information due to not understanding much of it, but see other reviews for that, im just saying that if you like 4x games, get this, it is actualy alot less complicated than things like Endless Space and whatnot, so it is a good place to start getting into 4x strategies.

Great game but very buggy on modern systems. Your mileage may vary. If there were a way to try it out before purchasing I would recommend doing that just to make sure it runs properly.

It still gets a recommendation from me as the game itself is excellent. It would be nice if they released a patch to iron out the new bugs but given this game's age I don't think that's going to happen.

This is a good game, I hadn't played it in a while, and then installed it again, and it was fun. Turn based strategy with exploring and fighting.

This would be great if the GAME ♥♥♥♥ING WORKED. No support or anything, either. Don't waste the $10.

This is like playing a really bad version of Heroes of Might and Magic. It looks like it would have been fun back in the day when there were less options but even then there was Heroes. The interface is the worst part. It isn't a super bad game but it is'nt a Heroes replacement or subsitute so I would not suggest this game unless you really enjoy these types of games.

This game is unplayable. It has taken over 15 minutes to load and the mouse was frozen.
I purchased this game today in a bundle. If I can't get it working, it was a waste of money like most of the other games I have purchased from steam...

Forgot how addicting this game is, it's so much fun. has an unfortunate flickering thing on my screen though... but the game itself is still awsome. Slow methodical strategy game that has a challenging but fair difficulty.
