There's a fun game underneath bugs and lacking tutorials, lots of free updates coming from Stardock." how is it that you score it 4 and a half stars...Vote: Down Up 0 report user First Prev 1 Next Last post a comment Elemental: War of Magic | PC Rele
Solid turnbased formula may cause you to lose a few hours to its spell, A nice amount of strategic flexibility.
The launch version is a little buggy, multiplayer is MIA, and a more thorough tutorial is needed.
Loaded with crippling bugs, Terrible interface and player feedback, The AI fails to put on the pressure, Tactical battles aren't worth the effort, Plenty of slowdown in spite of the unimpressive visuals.

Elemental: War of Magic is convoluted and ridiculous and sometimes fun. Part of this convolution (and most of the fun) can be attributed to the genre, which is called 4X (it stands for explore, expand, exploit and exterminate. Get it? 4X?). If...50

Stardock’s latest has some rough edges, but fans of the 4x genre (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate) will find plenty of reasons to pour hours of their time creating their own fantasy epics. Better still, Stardock's track record of post...70

Elemental: War of Magic is the first turn-based strategy game I’ve played in a while; which, turned out to be a sad reentry into the genre. Elemental: War of Magic was made by Stardock, the same developers that made the Galactic Civilizations...40

In the end I have to admit that despite its large number of problems I find Elemental strangely engaging, and I want to keep playing just because I know that someday it's going to become a much better game than it is right now. It really is the...60
