I think this is the best game I’ve played in a very long time I’ll spend hours and hours of playing this game and never get bored. There’s always something new in different strategies to overcome and you feel a sense of accomplishment once you’ve conquered the territory.

the balance between graphics and gameplay is just about perfect

Fanatical User

What I most enjoy about Age of Wonders games is that, when you choose the right difficulty level for you, the game is brilliantly playable. The graphics are excellent, the options are good, the scenarios are well-balanced but the gameplay is the absolute clincher. I recommend Age of Wonders to any player who enjoys gameplay, especially those who, like me, find most games too difficult.
