    From the viewpoint of a casual but interested fan, Storm Ground is a success both as an enjoyable turn-based strategy rogue-lite game and as yet another product in the vast and varied Warhammer universe. Although it exists primarily as a training ground for multiplayer, the single-player campaign is worth playing, though it would have been even better with a true dramatic arc instead of the “infinitely replayable” roguelike runs. The three factions are a great place to start and whet the appetite for expansions and additional content.

    A great strategy title for fans of tactical turn-based combat. The synergy between different factions, playstyles, and faction heroes offers plenty of variety and, combined with the reward system, keeps things interesting. Maps can become repetitive after a long play session, but this felt like a minor bug in an otherwise solid strategy game.

    Storm Ground hits the mark by making the most of Warhammer Age of Sigmar’s license. The roguelite structure of the game might seem a bit bland, but the gameplay loop is solid despite the mission objective tending to be quite repetitive.

    Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground is an interesting and engaging tactical game, it should have in theory a huge lifespan with its 3 factions, its rogue-like campaigns replayable in many ways and its ton of units, equipment, skills and heroes. But in practice, it runs out of steam quite quickly in single player, the fault of an AI as well as a sluggish game pace, maps that lack fantasy and a decreasing difficulty curve. It could have been much more fun with more polish.

    Though the mediocre UI makes the game needlessly intimidating, Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground is an engaging tactics game that successfully mixes systems from multiple genres.

    With flavourful combat mechanics for each faction and a cast of bombastic characters, Storm Ground is a worthy introduction to the Age of Sigmar setting that's marred by some rough edges.

    Storm Ground delivers solid hexfeld strategy, but cannot bring the enormous potential of Age of Sigmar onto the screen.

    The most recent entry in its franchise, Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground is an ambitious tactical RPG that falls short of achieving its goals.

    Unfortunately, Storm Ground couldn't live up to my expectations. If the developers put a little more work into the title, I might come back and give the adventure a second chance.

    A decent outing for fans of the tabletop miniatures game. It creates a solid "one more time" gameplay loop that keeps players constantly trying to find better units and gear to max out their potential. The story for each faction is enjoyable, despite its constant mid-battle interruptions, and the consistent difficulty level makes for a solid challenge, even if the overall package is unlikely to resonate with anyone who isn't already keen on either the genre or the IP.

    Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground is a tough, roguelike strategy game not without its rough edges. But there's a fair amount of fun to be had for fans of Warhammer.

    A straightforward tactics game buried beneath an impassable mountain of roguelike metagame.

    Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground is a disappointingly mediocre tactical game. The bits of quality game design and pretty graphics that make up the core of it are overwhelmingly obscured by a frustrating single-player and multiplayer grind, then layered over by a thick paste of bugs, inconsistent rules, and an overall lack of content. Underwhelming to say the least.

    This could have been an awesome entry in the Warhammer franchise. Unfortunately, a poor main character, shoddy writing and lackluster storyThis could have been an awesome entry in the Warhammer franchise. Unfortunately, a poor main character, shoddy writing and lackluster story make this another victim for the bargain bin. In fact, I would not purchase it at a discount. I did enjoy the turn based battles but not enough to continue playing. Plenty of better Warhammer games out there. Full Review »
