Legends of Eisenwald blends two distinct games into one epic ‘Knight-errant’ strategic RPG experience. Journey through a vast wooded realm depicted in beautifully detailed map provides the setting for finding quests, recruiting troops, and choosing siege or visit castles. When assaulting an enemy, or are waylaid in the wilds, go right down into the battlefield, to control your forces in a deep yet streamlined turn-based combat. - Two distinct forms of gameplay - Questing and strategic planning, plus tactical turn-based battles. - Explore the beautifully detailed strategic map of the gritty and gothic Duchy of Eisenwald. - Tightly-refined battle system that swiftly leads to grizzly or glorious results. - Play as Knight, Mystic or Baroness. - Incredibly deep options for customising your character & travelling party, through upgrade systems and a huge arsenal of weaponry and gear. - Compelling variety of quests, based around realistic human motivations and goals. - No fantasy clichés.
The game is fun to play with bugs but it's understandable because the game is still in beta. Perhaps after consistent patches to fix major crashes (mainly occur before initializing battle or after defeating enemy lord), the game would lean closer to a 10/10.
This is a great game, even though it's still in Beta. It's the perfect mixture of strategy, dipimacy and combat. Most of the action in the game is player-driven. Rather than being forced to adhere to a linier plot, the player takes command.
