I`ve beenI`ve bought the game 1 day after release and it totally made to stop playing Cities: Skylines (another great game in this year). I`ve been playing it non stop and will continue to do for a long time for sure. I am sure I`m gona try out at least the PoTD mode and all made adventurers group compared to my current Hard Mode NPC picked party.
Game is great. I totally received a game I was hoping I would get. Game is trully a modern BG2. Music, UI, dialogs, options, game flow, active pause, all bring this nostalgic feeling of playing yet another fantastic great game from Black Isle Studios .... take that back - Obsidian. Some mechanics are a bit controversial but all in all it just a matter of taste how you aproach them f.e. rest mechanic, combat, AI abuse. Overall you recieve a wonderful game well worth it`s price. To be completely honest I regret now I didn`t back the game when it was on Kickstarter.
It`s a fine game and compared to most recent moderns RPGs the game has a real world, a real story. Overall game is a 9/10 but compared to recent BioWare games it`s a damn 10/10 and I`ll go with that score in my review.… Expand

And after few hoursHow to put it .... at release day I was disappointed. I had much hopes for this title after over 900 hourse spent in Civ5. And after few hours I felt I played a major mod for Civ5 .... I felt depressed. And at that moment I was rating the game as 5 or 6 tops ... but now. I think the game is quite good actually but the balance changes are ESSENTIAL if it`s lifespan is supposed to last longer than 6 months tops. Affinity is great, Tech web is great, New setting, graphics, environment, aliens. Superb. But all of those can be tweaked even more and I hope Firaxis still see potential to improve with their game as it is a solid game. Just polish it a bit more!… Expand

I`ve bought it yesterday and managed to sustain my survivors till 21 day ... The game is brutal for newcomers. You have to completly change your view over war games and how to aproach some situations it this game. Yes it has some issues but they are a minor annoyances compared to other stuff some developers throw in your face which names I won`t speak at this moment *cough*cough*Ubisoft*cough*cough*. The best and strongest part of this game as I believe I make a real connection with those virtual persons you control and try to keep alive. Well that alone is nothing groudnbreaking as already there are plenty of survival games but the emotional and moral narrative brought into the game is great. Well done 11bit studios! Well done!
This game made me go sleep at 2:00 AM even though my alarm clock is set to 5:15 am. Great buy!… Expand

If you are like myself this type of a player that like to have impact on almost every aspect of the game (while not so overwhelming like in Master of Orion3) which is made inteligently you`re going to love this game from first play. Where?
The game presents to us a very damaged world filled with ancient creatures, hordes of bandits or similar bloodthirsty ruffians roaming the land. A world with deep history with connections and old grudges betwenn nations. Civilizations are one step from oblivion and the only person which can lead your men and women to the safe harbor is You!
The options! Game designers presented to us a very big arsenal of customization to the civilization we pick to lead. Picking default soveregins or making your own is just a first sign of options the games presents to the patient gamer. The more you sink into the game, to more you try to understand and master the more you realize how good product have been given into your hands. I will just say, the way developers made the whole city managment, army customization, magic and economical system in my eyes is worth of a Nobel prize in game designing! Marvelous!
To sum up, for fantasy lovers with a taste for world domination this game is a must have!!!!… Expand
