    Worlds of Magic would have been passable had it not been so buggy.

    It’s got some strong foundations but the execution begs for a mercy killing. [05/2015, p.59]

    Its fantasy world is undercut by bland artistic direction and a lack of conviction.

It's a pale, buggy imitation of Masters of Magic from 20 years ago with much of the magic removed. It's not a horrible 4X game, but there are a few major issues.

    1. It's buggy. As hell. Like that tactical combat didn't work on release. Or lockups when taking cities. Or corrupting saves. Or a host of other issues. It should have never been released in this condition.

    2. Some of what made MoM great has been removed. For instance there are more shards now but none of them have the features or coolness of the old Myrror in the original game.

    These are just a couple of examples of issues. Major spell/racial imbalances, map zooming issues, control issues, AI issues...the list goes on and on. At this point it's so unpolished you can't even tell if it's a diamond or a cubic zirconia. It's just a rock.

    What it is right now is a buggy, pale version of a former classic. After a couple of games I see no reason to return to it. Save your money.
