    What a terrible game, waste of everyones time. I was kickstarter backer and backed this game, but did not receive any game keys. Thanks for nothing...

    Местами красивый, и в то же время достаточно примитивный варгейм. Нет тактических особенностей по местности, обидно.

    I was really looking forward to this game. But after playing it, it's hard to be anything but let down. The game lacks the depth of even a casual TBS. No terrain modifiers or no defensive bonuses. The game is entirely balanced in favor of the attacker. Compounding this issue is the movement and action system. For a given move command, you can move once, regardless of the distance. ThisI was really looking forward to this game. But after playing it, it's hard to be anything but let down. The game lacks the depth of even a casual TBS. No terrain modifiers or no defensive bonuses. The game is entirely balanced in favor of the attacker. Compounding this issue is the movement and action system. For a given move command, you can move once, regardless of the distance. This forces the player to move to the maximum distance to scout positions, and be unable to retreat when contact is made. And because all units can move as far as they can see in one turn, this means the enemy is almost always the one to attack first. The AI is mediocre at best. They do very little outside of rush you as soon as you're spotted.

    Also, the game is missing a traditional skirmish mode. So there are no scenarios against the AI that are played on a level field. Instead, all scenarios against the AI rely on giving the AI copious amounts of reinforcements to zerg at the player, which is the only way to offer a challenge (and it is, though not very interesting..).

    I rated this a 3 because while the gameplay is not enjoyable, it's at least stable and playable.. which is something. But I'm afraid a few patches won't be enough to fix its faults. The core gameplay needs an overhaul.

    I did not like the game. They *say* that it is in the same line as Advance Wars? What is the only similarity with AW? Maybe the fact that it is turn based and that there are individual units. But that's about it. The way indirect units engage, the way the characters interact, the way the units move, the way money comes in or out, the interface so many things, mostly all the game.

    A solid strategic base brought low by cheap AI and some shonky net code. [March 2014, p.56]

    A model Kickstarter project, delivering exactly what it promised, on time. And on top of that, it is a fine, turn based strategy game in the classic mold to boot. Maybe even a bit too classic: more originality in design of the world and mechanics would have only improved things. AI does fine on the small scale tactics and punishes the player for the careless positioning of single units, but at the larger scale it feels like overwhelming numbers and scripting of the missions are what the player is fighting against.

    Battle Worlds: Kronos is a tactical strategy game that borrows from classics such as Battle Isle and Panzer General. Missions take long and demand your complete devotion, which makes the game fun but slow at certain times.
