About This Game

Guardians of Graxia takes on the form of a card-based board game set in a floating island environment high in the sky of the Graxia world. Releasing with four powerful Guardians that will guide your armies into battle, charge onto the battlefield by laying out your forces strategically. Gameplay advances in turns by selecting new unit and spell cards to place and move on the tiled map surface. Win by completing any of the numerous skirmishes, or by defeating Draknal Trueblood in the game's initial campaign!
The floating continents are filled with the cities and dens of dozens of magical races, including Dragons, Dwarves, Elves, Goblins, Humans, and many others. Guardians are the only ones able to create magical portals which are the sole means to cross from one drifting continent to another. The various creatures are constantly at war with each other through using their Guardians and armies via the portals. Use these portals to transport your armies and conquer the land found on the other side!

Key features:

  • Combines the best of a card game and board game in a PC format.
  • Dynamic gameplay using cards and map tiles in a floating continent environment.
  • Single-player skirmish and campaign modes available.
  • Highly replayable with over 240 Unit and Spell Cards.

There is a grocery store near me. It is probably one of the few sanctuaries of old fashioned small town American thought left in existence and I mean that as both a positive and a negative. The store hires 70% local kids, makes them all be cleanly shaven, wear suit shirts and has a strict no smoking policy. The store isn't open on sundays, the baggers carry your groceries to your car for you. Visiting the store is like entering a time machine.
At the exit to the store is a small gumball machine. For 25 cents you get one gumball. The thing is the machine is broken. It will 9 times out of 10 give you 2 gumballs. I bought this game on an extreme sale for 25 cents. If that gumball machine only ever gave out one gumball instead of 2 I would recomend the game over the gumball machine. As it is I get more long lasting enjoyment out of 2 gumballs than I have out of this game.

Before I go into the review, here is some information you'll need as at the time of me playing it before completeing it, the game is broken and requires the following fix, however for some it still doesn't work:

Rename CREDITSTEXTFILE_ENGLISH.DAT as CREDITSTEXTFILE_UNITED_KINGDOM.DAT and MASTERTEXTFILE_ENGLISH.DAT as MASTERTEXTFILE_UNITED_KINGDOM.DAT
Both of these are in ...\Steam\SteamApps\common\guardians of graxia\DATA\TEXT\


The actual game however, it quite fun and I've been waiting for ages to play it as it's a turn-based, card based, tile-based game. It's a lot of fun, however I found as soon as I got to the second mission the difficulty just jumped out of the floor and into the sky. I'd like to see more games like this, but a little more easily balanced. Plus there are only 5 missions in it.

This game feels overly complicated. While that alone isn't bad, the player is often left in the dark or cannot comprehend how certain actions and numbers are calculated. Everything feels like pure chance way too often. And I haven't found any ingame help or manual that explains the underlying structure of the number crunching. You just cannot play a strategy "card" game, if you do not have the means to successfully develop a strategy with the things you are given.
