Looks great. AI lacks armies.

This game looks amazing. And the idea of having a civilisation type game where you can expand the city beyond the original hex is exciting ~ an actual growing city with bonuses for each city/district level eg if you surround a district with 4 other districts it gains a level with powerful bonuses. Or you can spread the districts out like a branching pattern and maximise your income and covering unique terrain features. This game is definitely one for those who like civilization but wanted more focus on the building side. The ai is abit weak in this game. I played on hard and normal difficulty and found they rarely sustained any armies till quite late in the game by which time I had spent half the game killing 90% of the players on the map. I later found out that the ai quite happily suicides his units on the neutrals in this game which is why they never had much of an army or chance against military conquests especially if you attack their cities in the first 20 turns. I've seen many ai cities under siege by just one neutral unit. This game looks great and has good gameplay mechanics but the ai needs improvement. If you don't play for conquest, this game plays very nicely as a civ builder.

Endless Legend Review

Nazakoo | Oct. 2, 2014 | See all Nazakoo's reviews »

Endless Legend is a fun game, but more it is capable of being custom tailored to someone who wants a slower pace or a faster paced game. Endless Legend is best summarized as "Heroes of Might and Magic" and "Civ 5" got together, had a baby and Endless Legend was that child. It got an 80 because the game is very well balanced. The issues I saw with it was winter... kind of annoyed me. The game has a hell of a curve but, once you learn how to deal with winter, the different UI, and the varied strengths / weaknesses of the game. . . It turns into something very solid and honestly I enjoy playing more than civilization.

Early Access with a great perspective

Endless Legend is a great looking, but sitll alpha stage title. Gameplay is very promising, looking like Civ5 in fantasy world with some new ideas in the way of handling combat (you only choose what units should do and they execute your orders by they own). Still some bugs which can hit completely entire game from being playable (and you need to restart it to regain possibility to continue playing). A very promising turn based strategy with a very nice graphic style.
