Savage 2: A Tortured Soul takes the best of the FPS, RTS, and RPG genres and blends them seamlessly into an extremely addictive and complex experience. Anyone who's seen the game in action knows that each match is full of possibilities for epic moments and amazing displays of skill and strategy. Take the reigns as your team's commander from an overhead RTS perspective with superior strategic insight -- or join them on the field from a mixed action RPG and FPS view with a wide array of powerful classes and carve your path to victory.
s2games simplified and removed a lot of good fundamental game mechanics that made Savage 1 challenging and complex (distinct races, melee system, tech tree, economy, weapon and item selection, building placement ...) and flooded Savage 2 with insignificant micro configuration (+1 blabla item there, +2 blabla regen there ...) making the game look complex, although it is empty, boring and lacks true freedom of choice and mechanics.
The reason why there are still people believing Savage 2 is a worthy sequel is because the RTSS genre is so unpopular that even the most dissimilar games within the genre look somewhat similar.
Good Game. Nice mix of RPG, Strategy and FPS genres. Pretty good graphics even for todays standards.
Hopefully there will be savage 3 some time in the future, cuz somehow HoN (and all those other mobas) are not interesting for me. Thx for making Linux Clients also.
