Об этой игре

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!

Based on my brief experience with this game, it is truly terrible. The controls were clunky, the whole idea was needlessly complicated. I couldn't keep playing it.

Actually quite a good game of strategy. The expansion put in a random map and play so everything is different every game. One does figure out the strategy pretty quickly if one is an experience strategist and the ai becomes easy to beat but the difference in this one is playing and beating the ai. The are is nice and the animations are very good. I don't HIGHLY recommend this game but I do recommend it if you like card strategy games. It's one of a kind and quite different from others even Etherlords. It's more fun than a MTG game with just cards.

If only the devs had finished this and made it multiplayer. It would have been a fantastic multiplayer game. As the ai gets pretty predictable an easily exploited once you figure it out. For this price though it's worth finding out. :)

The game really looked interesting, but it's tooooooo slowwwwwww. I am not against having a complex card game, as long as it is well done. In that one, in addition to complexity you need a long time to just defeat an ennemy. Really a pity, because i quite like to see the different units on 3D. BTW, the game looks ok, but amazing but for a 2010 game, and considering that it's an indie game. It's still ok.

This is a messier, much more complicated, and fantasy-themed version of the Xbox 360-exclusive Panzer General: Allied Assault game from 2009. Panzer General was clunky, but playable and fun. To its credit, Graxia includes some of the balance improvements from the more refined board game version of Panzer General, but it does EVERYTHING else wrong. There's broken English everywhere. The tutorial is awful. The campaign is a measly SIX missions! There's no more deck building - each leader has his own deck, and you're stuck with it. (Supposedly you can unlock a few bonus cards by meeting special conditions in missions, but stupidly they're secret). The graphics are ugly - hilariously, wisps are just a ball of light. Every unit has several special abilities, so it's almost impossible to keep track of it all, especially because of the weird terms chosen by developers who very clearly aren't native English speakers.

Пресно, обычно, не ККИ (точнее не компьютерная её версия).

Это довольно слабенькая попытка скрестить элементы ККИ и пошаговой стратегии, смешно, но факт, авторы так и не смогли найти те элементы, которые ценятся в данных жанрах. Куцая короткая кампания и независимых сражений (даже с длц) тоже не делают игре чести. Свинью подложили даже в локализации, её нельзя выбрать, при запуске не в англ. винде у вас будет везде надпись TBD, правьте ручками господа.

Хмм, постараюсь написать адекватный обзор... Если вы любите битвы с участием карточек, то эта игра вам будет ближе. А теперь я хочу показать недостатки сией игры
1) Убогая аниммация
2) Анимация отстаёт от действий
3) Только английский язык
4) Тупейшие обучение
5) Никакой истории (из-за чего эти битвы происходят)
P.S Вот впринципе все недостатки игры.

Some interesting concepts here but it doesn't come together for a fun experience. The campaign is very short, the card mechanics are too reliant on sacrificing cards to boost your creatures, no deck building and the scenarios are always stacked against you. That second item (saccing cards) really ruined the game for me. I have no problem with playing cards to give you bonuses but what you are doing here is not casting a spell. You just discard it and your creature gets a bonus. Many, many battles are won by who can sacrifice the most. Not fun at all. With some tweaking this could have been a good game but it falls short. You are better off spending your time and money elsewhere in my opinion.

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.

This looked fun on paper, so I rolled the dice on this game... and started regretting it about an hour after. Each stage in this game drags out for what it seems like a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ eternity, models and animations are plain ugly, the outcome of battles is overly dependant on the luck of the draw and thus AI tends to gain unfair advantage here and there, all resulting in a really frustrating and daunting gameplay. Zero strategy, no deck builder, not fun. No multiplayer, no replay value, no involvement with the story either (was there even one? I cannot remember).

I suppose you could buy it when it's on sale if you're crazy about card games like me. I really like the concept but this game simply fails at too many aspects to be worth its current price.

Game is ok, lack of customizing, hurt the game. The developers didn't really support the game taking over a year to fix a simple bug and never adding in the features they said they would.

Предрелизный обзор
Genre - Strategy Fantasy turn based card game.
This game looks exactly like a game I would like. Unfortunately it dissapoints for two major reasons:
1) The game plays too slow Zzzzzzzzzz
2) The AI seems over powered on most levels HELP!
With a bit more play testing and balance this game could have been fun as there are some interesting concepts included that were fairly original at the time. Instead it just feels like an un-rewarding chore.

Play this game if you want to go up against hard to impossible odds in single player and prefer luck over strategy to get wins in multiplayer. Nothing quite like setting up a big attack only to find out that your opponent god-drawed a card to disable all support effects, or crippling the opposing hero and getting to watch as he gets healed four times in a single turn.

Guardians of Graxia is an innovative strategy card game that offers a detailed tactical challenge on a battle map, combined with the random element of card draws. The strategy is quite deep and not immediately obvious. You can't expect to jump in and play it well without first learning how the game works. Once you understand the mechanics though, it's easy enough to play, but not so easy to win! This is a hard game, which might put some people off, but for those that love a hard challenge, it can be very rewarding.

I must admit, when I read the other reviews, I was shocked to see so many negative comments, which is why I felt compelled to add this review of my own. Looking at those reviews, I noticed that many of them were by people who haven't put many hours into the game. Since it takes quite a while to master, I suspect that a lot of the negativity came from not playing it long enough to figure out the best strategies.

I'd like to address some of the points made in other reviews:

Overly complicated - Yes, it seems that way at first, there is a bit of a learning curve involved, but it's not that hard once you get used to it. The in-game help tells you all you need to know, you just need to take the trouble to read it. As for "ridiculously complicated" units with many different abilities, that's a good thing. It creates a lot of variety in the game, making the strategy more complex and interesting.

Trouble Man said that the game doesn't explain the number crunching, but it does. When in battle, there's a small arrow underneath Projected Health. Click this and it shows you the Damage Calculations. All the modifiers are listed to help you understand exactly what's going on in the battle.

Luck not Strategy - Not true! Sure, there's a lot of luck in which cards you draw, but hey, it's a card game, that's kind of the whole point! But once you've drawn your cards, what you do with them is pure strategy. There's nothing random in the combat calculations, it depends entirely on which cards are played. Of course, you don't know what cards the computer will play during the battles, but that's not luck, it's making strategic choices based on the cards it has available.

Just as the computer can ruin your attack by playing a powerful card, you can do exactly the same if you have one. Choosing which cards to play and which to save until later is a big part of the strategy. Tip: make feint attacks with unimportant units to force the computer to waste valuable cards, then make your important attacks with your best cards later, once the computer is out of good cards to defend with.

Another important aspect of the strategy are terrain effects and unit special abilities. Place units on tiles they gain an advantage on, not on ones that give them a disadvantage. Surround enemy units to gain support advantages. Capture many tiles quickly to increase your mana generation. There's loads of strategic possibilities on the battlefield.

Hard AI, scenarios stacked against you - This is true. It's not an easy game, but if it were then it wouldn't be much of a challenge. It's a pity there aren't more easy scenarios or different difficulty levels to make it easier for new players, but that's just the way it is. It may seem daunting at first, but it gets easier once you figure out the best strategies. People often criticise the AI for being too easy in many games, so it makes a nice change that this AI offers a hard challenge. If that scares you, then don't buy it, but if you love a hard strategical challenge, this may be for you.

Turn limits - Some people don't like this, but again, it's all part of the challenge. If you had unlimited turns it would make the game too easy. You'd just grab most of the tiles, get most of the mana and simply out-produce the AI. Besides, many people complain about the slow turns, so do you really want the game to go on for even longer?

Slow Turns - True, this can be annoying. I wish there were a way of speeding them up. But it's not the end of the world. You can always watch TV or do something else while the AI is taking its turn, or check your Facebook page, or whatever...

Story? What story? This is a strategy game! Who cares about story! :-)

Some reviewers compared the game to Magic the Gathering. Why? Because it's a fantasy game and it has cards? As I see it, this game is nothing like MtG, the game mechanics are completely different. IMO, this is more of a turn based strategy game than a card game. If MtG is what you are expecting, think again.

Saint Killjoy said "don't ignore the bad reviews, they were given for a reason" - That sounds fair enough, but I suspect that the two main reasons for the bad reviews are:

1. Having the wrong expectations about the game - perhaps thinking it will be like MtG, or thinking it will be easy because it's a card game. Don't buy it based on what you think or hope it will be like, buy it based on what it is. Check out some YouTube videos first.

2. Not playing it for long enough to figure out the best strategies. Yes it's hard, but you shouldn't give up too easily or pass judgement too soon. Good strategy games often take a long time to master.

My advice would be this: Make up your own mind about this game based on the kind of games that YOU like to play, not on the opinions of others who often have different tastes in games.

I'm not saying that everyone should like and buy this game. I'm sure that there are many people who would hate it. But for those that enjoy challenging turn based strategy against a hard AI, with some card based randomness thrown in, I highly recommend it. Just be sure that you know what you're letting yourself in for.

For the current sale price, it's a no brainer IMO. And even if you don't like it, you won't have lost much. But if you do buy it, make sure to buy both DLCs as well. There are only 9 maps in the base game. The DLCs add another 16 maps (some of which generate random terrain) and two more guardians, providing a lot more replayability.

To sum up:

PROS:
Challenging and deep turn based strategy.
Huge variety of special abilities.
Card based randomness ensures that every game is different.
Battles are quite hard.

CONS:
Gameplay seems a bit complex at first.
It takes a while to figure out the best strategies.
Slow AI turns.
Battles are quite hard.
