SpellForce 3 - The perfect blend between RTS and RPG!
It is the year 518. The rebellion of the renegade mages, known as the Mage Wars, has been quashed by the Crown. However, it was a Pyrrhic victory: Whole regions have fallen into anarchy, refugees roam the lands in search of shelter, and a mysterious, deadly plague called the “Bloodburn” has arisen and is spreading rapidly.
In times like these people cling to any sign of hope they can find. The Purity of Light, led by a charismatic man called Rondar Lacaine, claims that mages are the source of all misfortune – and that only the second coming of Aonir, the father of all gods, will return Eo to its former splendor.
The story takes place before the acclaimed SpellForce: The Order of Dawn.

Not everything in this game is bad, to start, the game offers a fun and yet simple skirmish mode that begs to be praised from the younger predecessors. Combat is bloody, fun and fast and punishes mistakes while rewarding those who know how to position their armies and use their heroes strategically. The campaign as I stated is deep and stuffed full of lore that is building the world for SpellForce: The Order of Dawn; the first game of the series of which this game prequels. Geralt of Rivia's voice actor (Doug Cockle) brings life and a grizzled narration to the story's dark storyline and helps to immerse you in the missions. The environments, maps, co-op campaign and wide-open doors of the developers seems to be showcasing that this game is definitely worth its price of only $50 USD. Does it need polish still? Yes. Is it broken and full of bugs? No. Is it fun and worth it? Absolutely!
The spellforce series is a collection of special games that PC owners must proud of it, this series combines both of role-playing and the strategy genres and has a special atmosphere which is unique and you didn't see it in any game before. Its role-play dimensions reflect well-known games such as Diablo and Sacred titles, and inherit the development of personality, skill trees, personalization of equipment, and isometric viewing angles, and the ability to simultaneously control multiple characters resembles titles such as Baldur's Gate or Neverwinter Nights. Also, Its strategy dimensions are borrowed from games like Warcraft. The two previous games of the series all come with a positive feedback from critics and players, and I'm sure the new Spellforce 3 is expected to be well received.
