The small army sizes prevent floods of units from taking and holding all points on the map and necessitate greater care with movement and empire expansion. Together, this creates a slow but focused style of play that's unlike anything else on the market.
It was sometime around the 13th straight hour of playing Warlock 2 that I realized I probably should have been asleep a few hundred turns ago. Despite that realization, I couldn't quit playing. Warlock 2 is a classic 4X strategy game that focuses a bit...
Warlock 2 offers a lot of options for a fantasy strategy fan, and the Exiled Mode is fun the first time, but there's something missing in the formula to make it a truly memorable game.
Warlock 2: The Exiled is a solid war-focused 4X strategy game with fantastic presentation. For newcomers to the series, it’s accessible but with a depth to the strategy that’s going to take you a few playthroughs to master.
If you liked the first game or need something to scratch that Civilization itch then this will make you very happy indeed – just don’t say I didn’t warn you about the giant turtles.
These balance issues aside, it's easy to spend hours warring against fantasy factions. Warlock 2 is now the best version of an enjoyably streamlined strategy series. Unfortunately, for owners of the original, it isn't so much better that it's worth wholeheartedly recommending.
An entertaining and efficient strategy game that improves on its predecessor—just not all that...
Warlock II might take place in a silly universe where narrators like to impersonate Sean Connery and kingdoms are ruled by regal rats or chatting skeletons, but Ino-Co has taken its construction very seriously. It’s exactly what a sequel should be, keeping the spirit of the original but improving every aspect.
Warlock 2 is an incredible well crafted game that is easy to bury hours into. Like any other good strategy game it can take some time to find the right strategy that will suit your play style, but that process of discovery is what makes these games so enticing.
In summary, this is a fun 4X TBS on the lighter side of things. The bugs and interface problems can be addressed in patches. What one is left with is a straightforward strategy game. It is colorful and easy to play, but won't make anyone forget “Europa Universalis”.
Still, this is a worthy successor, and definitely a game that can capture new gamers while keeping old fans happy. We look forward to seeing where the franchise goes from there.
I will skip right to the important part here at the beginning: no, this is not the next “Master of Magic”. Instead, “Warlock 2: The Exiled” (W2) is a sequel to “Warlock: Master of the Arcane” (W1). W1 was a decent game, so let's see what W2 can do with...
Cumple las expectativas de lo que debe ser un buen juego dentro de su género. Su calidad general es buena aunque le falten detalles que nos gustaría ver incluidos. Cómpralo sin miedo.
The original Warlock game was actually quite fun, all things considered. A fantasy Civ-like game, it had all of the military and political intrigue of a good 4x game, and then threw in monsters, alternate dimensions and kick-ass spell. It had its...
