Four years have passed since the Shaper's defeat through the use of Archfire. During that time scientists, dragons and inventors have tried to find a way to counter the mysterious deterioration of the portals - in vain.
The portal network has now totally collapsed and the islands are cut off from one another. The dragons and the Shaikan act as the only connection between the races, but even their resources are limited.
Now, with the nations isolated from one another, a new nameless enemy strikes. Eo is completely at the mercy of the attackers ascending from demonic depths.
In the midst of this chaos a new hero appears. A simple Shaikan and a member of the hand, he searches desperately for answers to his deeply disturbing dreams. This search leads him to the ancestral home of his people, the Iron Fields, to the mountain of the Patriarch Ur. The elders can only tell him that his dreams are connected to his destiny, but nothing more.
Upon arrival all he finds are more questions: Who are these demonic creatures the locals are calling the Nameless? What do the dragons know about the destiny of this world?
And what has Professor Twiddles plan to restore the portals to do with all this?
To discover his destiny, our hero must acquire new skills and do battle with enemies new and old. But wherever he goes - the Nameless always seem to be a step ahead, and futile battles break out in which the hero holds the destiny of all of Eo in his hands.

Very average for the Spellforce serieskoushik | March 17, 2014 | See all koushik's reviews »
This game is actually not worth it's price tag. It has what made the Spellforce franchise great, but it's short and i'll risk to say that it has the worst story of all the Spellforce series, based on the cliche that you have to do everything "because it's your destiny". However, if you like Spellforce mechanics you can still find this game enjoyable, and if you like the single player free mode it will be worth it for you.
Beware, however, that you won't be able to play with your friends if they own this game because the servers exist no more. You may try to find a way to play online with a program like hamachi, but I can guarantee that it won't be easy.
Very average for the Spellforce series....
Awesome addition to the SpellForce games.jeyko | July 1, 2012 | See all jeyko's reviews »
The long-awaited SpellForce 2: Faith in Destiny is here! Surely it does not exceed expectations, but it meets them perfectly. The graphics may not be of the prettiest, but the aesthetics are gorgeous and the gameplay is stellar - what you would expect from a high-class hack-and-slash game. The singleplayer portion of the game is it's main part, and is executed really well. There are a lot of diverse quests and a nice story. The multiplayer may not be that good, but that is not at what the game is aiming at.
By buying the Digital Deluxe edition you also get the main game - SpellForce 2, a digital map of the SpellForce world and an artbook. With all these additions, I would recommend the game to everyone, mustbuy if on sale!
