    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 game didn't need to be a roguelike, and the quirks of its structure cast a bit of a pall over the entire product. There's an abundance of content here, with multiple campaigns per faction and plenty of scope for tactics... but enough of it falls into the category of "luck of the draw" that it's somewhat outrageous just how much essentially unchanged content it makes you play through over and over again when you fail — or even when you succeed. Warhammer fans will likely enjoy the lore drip-feed and typically portentous writing, but everyone else should probably steer clear of Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground. An impressive game for sure, but not in the way that counts most.

The battle system and the graphics stand out especially well. The gameplay offers a lot and thanks to the different tactics, the battles have become very diverse. Also, the constant equipping of the individual units always makes sense. The game captivates you and you always want to continue playing the campaign. We are curious to see what further content the developers from Gasket Games will release in the coming weeks and months. Expand

    As turn-based tactical strategy games go on the Switch there’s no doubt that while Storm Ground benefits from the Warhammer license it stillAs turn-based tactical strategy games go on the Switch there’s no doubt that while Storm Ground benefits from the Warhammer license it still struggles in a number of areas. Possibly my biggest gripe is simply the glacial pace it feels like every turn moves at, and since so much of what happens in any given battle is repetitive that can be aggravating. In terms of production values the polished look and at least reasonably-good voice acting do try to help pump things up, as does the incorporation of some roguelike unpredictability, but too often the ground you’re treading throughout feels a bit too familiar nonetheless since no matter how exotic your units may look if they still function in very traditional ways the unique edge gets lost in the process. There are certainly worse strategy titles on the console but this fails to really get into the vicinity of the better genre standard bearers in the eShop.

    As June 2021 the game is frustrating, buggy, slow and blurry.
    I'm sorry but I can't believe that the GUI has such a lack of polish. On the main selection screen where you assign abilities... It doesn't work properly. Items aren't sorted and I'd a card is used it doesn't say by who. It has some lag. And honestly I don't know why is roguelike the peace is so slow to be roguelike. It is frustrating. A campaign mode straight forward would have been much more nice.. I don't recommend.

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 though but not enough to continue playing. Plenty of better Warhammer games out there. Expand

Have to advise against it. This badly needed more time in the oven for the Switch. The anti-aliasing/blur isn’t too bad but the frame rate drops make even simple camera movement stutter and falter when traversing the map. Basic stuff. I’d have gladly took a hit somewhere else to avoid that and I’m betting no compromise would even be needed if they’d just taken the time to optimise instead of releasing alongside all other platforms.

    Wait for a well publicised patch or give it a miss; these are your only real options. You have been warned.

    as with any other Warhammer title, i was looking forward to it ... as with any other Warhammer title i was fooled.

    On the switch you have extreme drops in performance .. the control is imprecise and without a touchscreen you would be lost in the menu ...

    the StormEternal story is brutally difficult at the beginning and took me a good 8 hours ...

    the other two weren't even halfway through ...

    in short ... it takes longer to write the review than to play the game ...
    is there anything else coming? that's it? except for a "play the story and unlock other items .." does not come there. i've seen all... i think... well idk...

    there is no choice of difficulty .. at least I haven't found it... there is no endgame... nothing...

    that the graphic is not in focus is ok ... even if it had been in 16 bit, it didn't bother ...

    But it missed the goal so hard... zoomed in, you get eye cancer ... and scrolling out you know how the ISS astronauts must feel ... because the lower UI is sooo big, you can't see your units.

    no help ... no reading ... no story ... nothing ...

    this game (regardless of the platform) shows once again that GW is throwing another title in the sand ...

    We want a total warhammer ...
    We want a Down of War 1 or 2 ...
    We want a remake of spacemarines ....
    or a Warhammer online ...

    and get:
    Lost crusade ... Chaos bane .. odyssey ... Eternal crusade ... DOW3 ... and now storm ground ..

    Wait for the sale ... $ 5 ... it's not worth the 30-40..
