Endless Legend is a 4X turn-based fantasy strategy game by the creators of Endless Space and Dungeon of the Endless. Create your own legend! Create your own Legend
Another sunrise, another day of toil. Food must be grown, industries built, science and magic advanced, and wealth collected. Urgency drives these simple efforts, however, for your planet holds a history of unexplained apocalypse, and the winter you just survived was the worst on record. A fact that has also been true for the previous five.
As you discover the lost secrets of your world and the mysteries of the legends and ruins that exist as much in reality as in rumor, you will come to see that you are not alone. Other peoples also struggle to survive, to grow, and perhaps even to conquer.
You have a city, a loyal populace, and a few troops; your power and magic should be sufficient to keep them alive. But beyond that, nothing is certain… Where will you go, what will you find, and how will you react? Will your trail be one of roses, or of blood?
Explore fantastic lands.
Expand beyond the unknown.
Exploit every opportunity.
Exterminate fools who defy you.

Endless legend is 4x turn-based strategy game, set in the land of Auriga. Which if you've played any of the other Endless titles, it's a familiar universe. You have 9-10 civilizations with which to roam the the land, colonize, or destroy. (Original edition gives you 8, but the expansions have added a few new ones) You build you cities, which have tech, food, and science points that help your city grow, but be careful, because winter is coming. 1st short, but each one after is longer and longer. Why is this a problem? Winter affects your food, when your city is hungry, it affects everything else. (This period of winter is the focus of their new expansion) Its a neat spin on an otherwise flooded 4x market. The AI seems to lack any real depth, this is really my only complaint. After awhile, it feels like it just gives up. Or, it's so hard you can't do a thing with it. No middle ground. But, Civ is pretty much the same way. Graphics and sound are beautiful, having had no issues with startup. At it's current value, it's a steal. PIck it up if you want an in-depth substitute for Civ. So is it a Civ killer? Not yet, but it is real close.
Pros: +Artistic Style +Lore +Diverse factions requiring unique play-styles Cons: -Lack of explanation on some mechanics -AI is not so great Endless Legend provides endless fun with an engaging and detailed world. This game gets a lot right, with diverse factions with unique quirks and skills. Some factions will force you to be at war with everyone, while others will require careful diplomacy and smart trade practices. However, it should be noted that not everything is explained in decent depth, requiring some amount of trial and error. Also, the AI is predictable and sometimes difficult to manage.
This game has so much I love in it. Amazing artwork, awesome lore, a huge world, awesome "nation" variety, and a surprisingly tense story. Unfortunately, the gameplay was painfully dull in my opinion. It wasn't bad, but it just never clicked with me. it felt really shallow and repetitive and it hurt because I was in love with this game from the first time I heard about it. If you enjoy the combat, I bet it's glorious. It's just not for me.
Endless Legend is a pretty fun game in a universe that is familiar if you have played Endless Space and/or Dungeon of the Endless. The setting is on the planet of Auriga and you have to conquer it by diplomacy or war. The battle mechanics are pretty unique as you have to maneuver your troops around tiles, like Civilization, and try to defeat your enemy. Also the units you have in your disposal depends on what faction you are and what minor faction you have assimilated, giving you a wide range of units. As for the empire mechanics, it's pretty much colonize, expand your city through improvements, and do the usual research. Where you place your cities is important since you can place it in an area with Food, Science, Dust, or Industry bonuses. There are also special tiles that gives you bonuses in more areas or stronger weapons. Apart from the game play, one thing I absolutely love is the music. There are some issues, like the game crashing on the 64-bit while running a AMD graphics card (not sure if that has been fixed) and does take a while to start off. Like Amplitude's games, it does have future free "add-ons" (or updates) and the probable DLC to further expand the game. I recommend this to anyone who likes 4X games or just the Endless lore.
Endless legend is a fun game, and extremely addicting if you enjoy playing tile games like Civilization. By far my favorite feature in this game is the combat system. If you've played Endless space, you are very familiar with the usual "manual or automatic" fighting modes. The difference comes in when you use the manual fighting mode, in which a battlefield gets stretched out and you use the physical map to fight on. It's an interesting concept, and it can make or break battles depending on the terrain you choose your battles on. This game, although Alpha, still looks absolutely amazing, and you wouldn't be able to tell unless someone told you. I'd recommend this for anyone looking for a slow, strategic tile-based game.
