    It is a good game for those with a lot of time and patience. Most bugs are gone by now due to patch 1.05, so now would be the time to buy it. Downrated for: Slow action, missions beeing almost always the same and so on. You can have quite some fun with it, but do not expect too much.

  1. It may have a familiar-seeming premise, and it may have a few noticeable shortcomings, but SpellForce's unique combination of role-playing and strategy elements makes it worth a look for fans of either kind of game.

    Gets an "A" for design, and a "C-" for execution. Let's hope major patches can revise this game to greatness. [Apr 2004, p.81]
  3. Amazing graphics, and it expands on everything that previous RTS and RPG games have created.
