    Age of Fear is definitive throwback to old times when game developers were focused more on game content than flashy graphics. I have boughtAge of Fear is definitive throwback to old times when game developers were focused more on game content than flashy graphics. I have bought this game on BeamDog's promotional sale and I later on also bought it from developer site for my Linux box.
    The game starts small with barely 4-5 creatures in player's army, but it quickly grows to dozen and more units and that's where game becomes very interesting. There are three races available (humans, undead and orcs), each with its own unique characters and magic. On the single player side - story is surprisingly good! I found myself playing yet another level just to find out what happens to Krill (necromancer) or Edward (knight).
    Cons: game starts small in tutorial-like fashion, simple graphic; Pros: good story, nice music, interesting armies, you can play as necromancer, Linux and Mac OS are supported natively

    After finishing both campaigns and spending several hours in skirmish battles, I can say the game gives lot of fun for 10 pounds. Graphics and sound are fine for an indie title, but the gameplay is where Age of Fear really shines. There are three army sets with dozen distinctive units each and every single unit with its own unique skills - that's impressive, especially the game is balanced quite well! Nevertheless, do not worry about the complexity - campaigns are doing good job introducing all units in good pace and you will learn the system in short time. I wish there were more games like this.

    Turn-based strategies are quite rare nowadays. Recently we have HOMM6 and King's Bounty series - those are good games, but they do not offerTurn-based strategies are quite rare nowadays. Recently we have HOMM6 and King's Bounty series - those are good games, but they do not offer anything new. After few sessions of play - there is nothing that will surprise you and the rest of game becomes tiresome grinding. Age of Fear is an indie title, thus do not expect fireworks. Game is kinda short - it takes like a 20 hours to finish plus skirmish, however I found each mission to be interesting and they require some thinking and planning. Devs are also introducing new features in each level (exploding goblins!), thus game does not get boring until the end.
    It's definitely worth 20 bucks.
