    Endless Legend is a lovely game with deep strategy that's a singular pleasure to play, but can sometimes disappoint you in finer details. Know that if you're never going to play multiplayer, you're not getting the whole experience - so bring a friend.

    Endless Legend combines fantastic fiction with compelling strategy. Underpinning it all is a strong design philosophy that connects the tenets of the 4X genre together seamlessly, while providing a plethora of options without being overwhelming. Even during a time when we’re seeing a lot of 4X offerings, it sets itself apart, promising something different from its contemporaries.

    It takes a classic strategy formula, but makes it feel fresh, offering a fun, addictive and almost unique experience.

    Daunting to an almost discouraging degree at first, but once you get the hang of it you’ll get sucked right in, and afterwards you’ll probably need a cooling off period before trying again. But you WILL try again.

    Endless Legends defies Civilization with a deep strategic gameplay, and a luxuriant fantasy setting.

    A gorgeous, smart and addictive game that is somewhat let down by weak AI. If Amplitude sticks with it post release, it could easily become the new king of the genre.

    A fresh mix of Heroes of Might & Magic, Civilization and the 4X strategy genre that boasts an enticing atmosphere but lacks polish. [Issue#246]

It's a fantastical world, beautifully realized, and provides so much more variety than the Civ series can. Much of this stems from the factions in the game. In Civ, factions have 2 unique units or buildings, and a special characteristic. In Endless Legend, each race not only has completely different units, but forces the player to adopt radically new play styles, depending on the strengths and weaknesses and quirks of the race they're playing. Oh, and your units can be equipped with items of increasing cost and ability, allowing a huge amount of customization.

    Play it see for yourself.

    Wonderfully designed 4x turn based civ like game.

    It does almost everything right. It has clever 1_city per region mechanic, which prevents city spam. It has adequate expansion rush drawbacks. You can’t build and research everything, you have to make decisions. And the quest and hero mechanics are also well done.

    The only (but quite huge) drawback the game has is AI. It’s simply bad, I've finished my second game run (I stared with one race, played for two hours, then decided to restart with another race) on impossible difficulty (2nd most difficult) and I wasn’t even challenged. I’m afraid this issue will not be fixed, the game is too complex for dev’s to make competent AI. It’s quite an indie title, and even Civ 5 dev’s couldn’t handle AI. They can scale up AI bonuses, to make it cheat, but that’s not really a solution.

I love the quest system and the differentComing from Civ 5, I rated this game poorly, but after getting into it have come to like it a lot. I love the quest system and the different factions. They each have a unique feel and play differently from one another. You get to customize your units and keep upgrading them forever which I really like. They mixed in a small number of RPG elements into a turn based strategy game, which is nice. Hero's, equipment, quests, temple exploration. You can micro manage combat, but after the first couple of battles I tend to just auto resolve it.

    This game does have issues with stability though. It tends to crashes every so often and gets slow in late game. Which is why i give it a 7, fixed those stability problems and it gets a 8.

Yet game doesn't offer any means to increase text size until it becomes readable. That basic failure requires so low an intelligence that you would wonder why the game maker even tried to make a strategy game. Anyway, it cannot physically be played, so the intrinsic value of the software is simply zero. Expand
