Visually striking battles, intricate maps and an intuitive interface make this a cerebrally satisfying and accessible fantasy strategy. Pleasantly non-linear, it offers hours of fun as you quest to retrieve a stolen spell. There’s some party...

By Oo Gin LeeI HAVE been a huge fan of turn-based strategy games since the hit Panzer General game in 1994.That was when you had to conquer Europe using tanks, infantry and artillery in a world filled with hexagonal grids which determine where and how...

7This is a slightly above average strategy title that offers some good strategic gameplay. However, many players won’t stick with it because of the difficulty of finishing the missions from about the middle game onward. I enjoy a challenge as well...

This fantasy sequel is a good entry-level wargame....

Elven Legacy is a 3D fantasy wargame that is easy enough for newbies to learn but challenging enough to earn the attention (and affection) of grizzled veterans. Although you probably wouldnt know it from the title, Elven Legacy is the sequel to...

The story begins when one of the high elven mages sees a human mage using forbidden magic and you have to gather your troops and trek across forsaken lands in order to stop this forbidden magic from being used in the wrong hands. This game really...

Following Fantasy Wars of yesteryear, Elven Legacy puts players in the pointy-tipped boots of Elven armies in a vast fantasy world. Like many strategy titles, Elven Legacy relies on a turn-based game mechanic to allow players to strategize and plan...

In 2007, 1C / Ino-Co released a game called Fantasy Wars that was a simple turn-based strategy game set in a fantasy world where orcs, elves and humans battled against each other. At the time, I seem to have accused them of having chosen one of the...

While it sticks to come of the more clichéd aspects of fantasy and the genre, Elven Legacy for the most part is a solid and well put together turn-based strategy game with some decent graphics and a good starting price tag. It’s not next-gen...

Elven Legacy har en god del mangler og spiller ikke på svært mange strenger, men leverer likevel en virkelig god spillopplevelse. Hvis du liker utfordrende rundebasert strategi kan jeg anbefale deg dette spillet på det sterkeste....

Elven Legacy er et spil, der går mod strømmen. De fleste strategispil er i dag af real-time-typen, hvor man spiller uden afbrydelser og modstanderen handler, mens man selv overvejer sine næste beslutninger. Elven Legacy er derimod...

International Review By Gameswelt.de on 72

Elven Legacy kommt recht blutig daher, ist jedoch immer auf wunderschöne Umgebungsgestaltung bedacht. Jetzt muss nur noch der Spielspaß stimmen, damit das Spiel zu einem würdigen Fantasy-Wars-Nachfolger erkoren werden kann....

International Review By Looki.de on 81

von Christopher Link In Sachen Präsentation und Story versagt Elven Legacy kläglich: Eindimensionale Abziehhelden, belanglose Hintergrund-Texte der Marke "Ich hatte heute einfach keine guten Ideen" und eher magere Cutscenes können auf in...

Klassisk omgångsbaserad strategi som får dina geniknölar att arbeta är idén bakom Paradox och Ino-Cos senaste spel, Elven Legacy. Alver i krig med människor är huvudkomponenten i en titel många varit nyfikna...

International Review By Subdogs on 80

Elven Legacy är ett traditionellt, omgångsbaserat krigsspel i fantasymiljö och en inofficiell uppföljare till Fantasy Wars. Det är utvecklat av en rysk spelstudio men ges ut av det svenska förlaget Paradox är känt...

Kun kapinallinen ihmismaagi karkaa mukanaan vino pino haltioiden salaisuuksia, on aika tarttua aseisiin. Vääriin käsiin joutuneet tiedot on saatava takaisin, vaikka se tietäisi taistelua läpi ihmisten valtakunnan. Veri tulee...

International Review By GameCaptain on 80

Elven Legacy ist ein ordentliches Rundenstrategiespiel im Fantasy-Setting. Gute Bedienbarkeit, ordentliches Kampfsystem und Armeemanagement, eine nicht-lineare Kampagne und eine gelungene Vertonung sind die Stärken, simple KI, durchsichtige Story...

International Review By Gamer.no on 80

Det rundebaserte strategispillet Elven Legacy har ikke noen stor flerspillerdel. Det har ikke enorme mengder innhold. Det har ikke fartsfylte kamper med masse action. Det har ikke en original eller unik verden eller historie. Det har ikke nye og...

Tätä taustaa vasten vuonna 2007 julkaistu Fantasy Wars esittäytyi perinteitä kunnioittavana mutta samalla modernin toimivana herkkupalana. Nyt Tolkieninsa lukeneiden nojatuolikenraalien on syytä hykerrellä...
