    Like its predecessor, Fantasy General 2 captivates from the first mission.

    This is thoroughly entertaining, surprisingly well conceived fantasy tactics with a focus on depth. This is a breath of fresh air that doesn’t rely on the typical rock-paper-scissors mechanics.

    Fantasy General 2 worth its predecessor, both for what concerns the gameplay on the battlefield, and for the really high difficulty.

    Fantasy General II brings some modern additions to a tried and true formula in an engaging and challenging campaign. Overall - a great success.

    Fantasy General II is a true wargame, a tribute to the past but with a modern feeling.

    For a turn-based strategy battler the scenarios have a quite dramatic flow to them. And the game only gains from it. Even escort missions cease to be just battles and it pays to devise interesting ways to break through the enemy lines [12/2019, p.48]

    Despite having a lengthy campaign and sound gameplay mechanics, a number of technical hiccups, randomized rewards, and egregious repetitiveness hold back Fantasy General 2. It tries to combine a unique fantasy RPG experience with wargaming strategy, but it falls just a little bit short on both counts.

Thanks to the "weapons" system, no unit is ever completely useless and you can take your army in many directions. Tactically and strategically engaging, this game lives up to it's predecessor. Expand

    Awesome fantasy strategy with RPG elements. Your troops collects XP, gains levels and perks, can be equipped with items. Game play is reallyAwesome fantasy strategy with RPG elements. Your troops collects XP, gains levels and perks, can be equipped with items. Game play is really deep and tactical.
    There is lots of single player content even there is just one playable faction for campaign. Haven't checked out multiplayer yet. Worthy successor for Fantasy General I.
    Totally 10/10 game! If you like strategy games or are new with the genre and like fantasy stuff, you should get this immediately!

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Worthy successor. Only minor setback is overpower of missile units in contrast to the first game where normally they had support role. Expand

    A sequel as it should be: taking the original game and adding to it / improving features.

    Game(s) like: Fantasy General, Panzer Corps

    Pros:
    - Cool setting
    - Solid UI - enjoyed the look and feel of the maps. Though the overview screens were blah.
    - The upgrade trees were cool

    Cons:
    - You upgrade based on loot you find, but sadly that loot is random
    - After several missions the strategy of attacking/repeating/heal and using either your whole or flanking two armies became repetitive
    - Frankly I like strategy game where each mission is basically atomic - by carrying over troops/experience the game gets either really easy or hard

    Not even close to matching the original. Awful in all ways but graphics; stick to the original Fantasy General.
