Informazioni sul gioco

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.
  • Game card creatures include: Dragon, Dwarves, Elves, Goblins, Humans, Orcs, Skeletons, Wisps, Wraiths and many more!

Worthwhile game by the Russians combining their favoirite genre (HOMM) with the concept of a card game.

CONSIDER THIS: THE TRUE GAME. I invite anyone reading this to consider the place of games in their lives. Do you feel it is an addiction or distraction? Do you feel it contributes to a sense of social and political lethargy? Does gaming function as an ajunct to TV as a form of mind control for (mostly) young males while you are being set up as potential recruit-fodder for the armed forces? There is a REAL game in this world. It is big and complex and totally worth playing. Before playing this game you should reflect on two things:
(1) What happens when a jet liner hits a large office tower?
(2) What happens when 200,000 of Structural steel in a 300 meter office tower collapses?
Compare your understanding for what happens in reality with what we were told happened on September 11 2001. If you notice a discrepancy you may be qualified to play the real game of life.
To play make your way to the nearest possible Freemasonic lodge and begin your application.
Talk to you again when you pass level 20 of the sacred order.

Nice graphics, good ideas for the units, end of positive points. Interface is clunky, you have to guess things out. Descriptions of the cards don't give you enough information. Animations during the combat phases slow down an already extremely slow game - the AI takes forever to move one card. Goals are impossible to reach because each map is timed and the AI cheats on everything - they can slay five of your units with the weakest of theirs. Maps are thought as bottlenecks : only one strategy, only one direction to go.

A frustrating experience I'd recommend only to my worst enemies.

Beginning the game

I've been playing for a couple of hours and I really have no clue what is going on. I get the basic mechanics but the details are not available in an explanation anywhere, such as what does a portal do and how do I use it?

I've done my years playing trading card games and I get they can be very complicated. So big fail on getting the player up to speed on the details of the mechanics, but I don't mind learning by experimenting if I have to, if the reward is a fun game.

Then drops the other shoe

The problem with experimenting to learn the mechanics is that the game moves so slow for every little thing. Then, the UI works, but interacting with it is painful. Like if you click the wrong card, does ESC back you out or right click? Because one works in one situation and doesn't in another. Overall it just becomes frustrating.

Then I get to the 2nd scenario and the huge giant just pummels my guys from afar with boulders (8 wounds jeeze) and 2 of the units they gave me, at the opposite end of the board no less, are dead within the first 2 turns. I still don’t know how to use portals, and it seems it would be useful here but it doesn’t work.

This is when I realize:

1) After 2 rounds and 2 hours, I don't know how to play this game well enough to compete even with a bad AI.

2) Trying to fight with bad UI, lack of any kind of decent instructions and the punishingly slow game progress is simply a waste of my time.

3) This game was probably a waste of money.

I say probably, because the strategic board game/TCG hybrid is interesting to me and is in my niche. It is conceivable that if I knew how to play it, I could get past all the bad (though the bad is terrible), and get some of my money's worth out of the game.

I hated Blood Bowl when I first played but, after watching some experts play through it, I got it and I ended up enjoying the game. Maybe this game could be that, but there is no such walkthrough to watch, no wiki to read, nothing.

Skip this game or trade it instead of activating it on Steam.

I like the whole idea of the game, but just the fact that it is such a slow turn-based game is what got me. And to add on to that, most the the AI units are OP and you have to have alot of mind power to overcome them.

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.
