  1. All in all Fantasy Wars is a solid game. If you are not a turn based strategy fan give it a miss, Fantasy Wars isn’t going to make any converts but it won’t drive away anyone who enjoys the genre either.

    A stout strategy yeoman. [Apr 2008, p.78]

    Fantasy Wars is an involving and satisfying game. Each side feels balanced if not dramatically different, the levelling system for every unit makes the game more addictive than it has any right to be and it hits the difficulty curve perfectly, being very easy to learn and incredibly difficult to master, especially at higher levels.
  4. An addicting strategy game that I enjoyed playing once I found the cheat codes.
  5. Fantasy Wars is as cliche as the title suggests. It does nothing new, but it also does nothing wrong. It's a good, solid game for newcomers to the genre, but it won't please too many hardcore gamers.
  6. Overall, Fantasy Wars was rather disappointing, since it had the potential to be so much more.

    It's certainly not worth more than a third of the asking price. [Apr 2008, p.115]
  8. Fantasy Wars will be most appreciated by those armchair generals who are thirsty for a dose of meticulous planning, not to mention those with comfy chairs, as it will be a long sitting before the day is done.

    Like a movie you'd only watch when your PC's fried and the cable's out, Fantasy Wars may satisfy a turn-based strategy fix when the well runs dry. [Mar 2008, p.78]
  10. The good implementation of the strategy makes up for what would otherwise be a pretty unimaginative and uninspiring game that would at best be described as a homage to a much loved aging genre.

    The AI is quite good (without "cheating") which makes this one of the most challenging turn-based games I have played in a long while.

The perk-tree is intriguing, albeit lacking in adequate documentation. This game will stretch your strategy muscles in good ways. Full Review »

    A great game for fans of good old turn-based strategies. If you liked games like Fantasy General, Battle Isle and Spellcross, you'll love this!

    Fantasy Wars: Una historia épica de fantasía medieval, con una jugabilidad excelente (Tactical-RPG), gráficos bonitos para la época, una bandaFantasy Wars: Una historia épica de fantasía medieval, con una jugabilidad excelente (Tactical-RPG), gráficos bonitos para la época, una banda sonora muy buena, tiene las voces de los personajes de Warcraft 3, es difícil, podes personalizar tu ejército desde qué tipos de unidades queres usar en cada batalla hasta el nombre de cada unidad y su progreso en las clases, batallas de 30 minutos a una hora como mínimo.
    IA balanceada, vasto número de unidades y clases en cada raza, múltiples maneras de finalizar un mismo escenario y un justo sistema de recompensa en base al tiempo que hayas tardado y los objetivos que hayas cumplido en cada misión.

    Tiene 3 campañas, la de los humanos, la de los orcos, y la de los elfos. Cada una consta de 9 a 10 misiones desafiantes, entretenidas y con diálogos épicos. Muy pocos diálogos, pero tremendamente épicos.
