About the Game

Fantasy Wars is a turn-based strategy game set in a fantasy world. Combining both classic strategy gameplay and sophisticated 3D graphics players can experience epic battles like never before. Taking place in a fantasy world of Human kingdoms, Orc clans, Dwarfs' citadels and Elven forests the player is thrust into a world of war and legend. Play the role of an Orc or Goblin boss, a captain of the Human army or lead the elite forces of the Elven army. Participate in castle sieges and village defense, assault and reconnaissance operations and swift raids. To be victorious remember that the amount and experience of troops is not always the key factor, organize cooperation between different types of units and use the landscape to achieve strategic superiority. The game consists of three story-connected campaigns. In each of them players will have to gather an army, upgrade units, find magic artifacts and study magic spells. An epic story has been crafted to draw gamers in. The great Orc chieftain and conqueror Ugraum, incited by the cruel shamans, gathers a huge horde to invade the land of Humans.

This game is great if you like turn/hex movement based strategy games. I picked this up for a couple of $$ on sale and it was a great buy as I just finished the game with over 80 hours of time in it. The game can be shorter or longer, just depends on your play style. Also, the game looks awesome on a triple monitor setup. I played this through on my rig with 3 24" Samsung monitors @ 4080x760 (5760x1080 made the font too small to read). So if you run mutiple monitors, this game works great on that playing setup.

I liked this so much I purchased Elven Legacy (the folllow up game from the same company) and have started on that now. If you see this game on sale like I did, pick it up and battle away. Totally recommended if this is your genre of gaming.

Despite what may be the most generic-sounding title ever conceived, Fantasy Wars is a quietly brilliant little strategy game. Each of the three factions has dozens of different units, upgrades, abilities, heros, and items to use, and the different terrain types and river crossings ensure that you will need to use all of these features to win. What I really like here is that many different army compositions are viable and no units types feel superior; you must use everything you have to win. The story is nonsense, but who cares?

With three different campaigns and tonnes of tactical depth Fantasy Wars is an excellent old-school turn-based strategy game with hours of playtime.

Fantasy Wars is a game with very good tactical turn-based battles. Nothing more nothing less.

The basic idea is this. You command a few heroes and other military units. You fight a lot of enemies and achieve some goal such as conquering a city. Then you move on to a new mission and do the same kind of thing. This is a lot of fun. Why? Because the tactical battles themselves are really good. For example thee are terrain bonuses that differ between military units and make perfect sense, e.g. elven archers may gain defence if hiding in the forest while knights will have a reduced charge attack score. Add to this a large number of different kinds of units to command, many of which are upgradable, several different heroes with unique skills and different skills to choose from for each type of unit when it levels up. Together it adds up to a challenging and fun to play turn based strategy game.

The story is the weakest element of the game. I cannot even remember what it was about and i just finished the game. But it doesn't really matter. This is not a game you play for the story anyway.

The interface is well designed and easy to understand and to use. There are three different campaigns, one of which is unlocked after you have beaten the other two (in either order). You can choose one of three difficulty level separately for each mission and there are also three different victory types depending on how quickly you finish the mission. This adds some replay value to what is already a long game.

Graphics are fairly good but nothing exceptional. Voice acting is okay, not bad but could have been better, although as with the story it doesn't make a big difference.

All in all I would highly recommend this to fans of turn-based strategy, but not really to anyone else. It offers great tactial turn-based battles if you like that. If you don't there is probably not really anything in it for you.

Think Vandal Hearts, feel the waves of nostalgia wash over your steam wallet like squirt from a camgirl and get ready to lose some hours.
