Age of Fear 2: The Chaos Lord is the sequel of the award-winning fantasy turn-based strategy Age of Fear: The Undead King. The game features a novel battle system, two campaigns with solid fantasy stories, and very flexible multi-player and skirmish modes.
The story takes place in an untamed fantasy land, where four forces: the Human Kingdom, the Greenskins' Horde, the Undead Legion, and the Chaos Demons, are fighting for domination and survival.
Be wary. You're about to encounter quick skirmishes, where your unit's cooperation is essential. You will visit distant lands, either as a twisted succubus or an evil orcish warlord. And you will conquer cities, destroy demonic invaders, and discover ancient secrets. At least, you'll do all of that if you can survive!
Multiplayer and skirmish modes! (HotSeat vs. AI vs. Networked Players)
Two full campaigns with multiple branches: The Demon's Lover and The Horde!
Enhanced and non-cheating AI!
91(!) units with over 100 unique skills, split into four distinctive armies (Human Kingdom, Undead Legion, Greenskins Horde and Chaos Demons)!
Over 40 unique battles and bonus content!

I haven't heard about the first Age of Fear until I found Age of Fear 2: The Chaos Lord. The game is a sequel to Age of Fear: The Undead King. It is a fantasy turn-based strategy with an interesting battle system. There are four main factions in Age of Fear 2 - The Chaos Lord: humans, greenskins, undead and demons. The game includes the usual elements of the genre - travels, fights ranging from skirmishes to conquering cities, quests, etc. You will have to make tough decisions each turn, to deal with threats with the limited resources you have at your disposal.
When you're done with both campaigns, you can still continue gaming in a multiplayer or skirmish mode. Unfortunately I had tough time finding players for multiplayer.
The game made me want to find the previous part of Age of Fear and see if it's as good as the rumour has it...
