Elven Legacy Examined

VGTribune recently posted a new review of Elven Legacy, a turn-based strategy title set in a fantasy world. The game more than 100 units, five heroes, five playable factions, multiplayer combat, multiple game endings, and a game editor for players who want to create their own missions. VGTribune gave the game a score of 8.5 out of 10.

From the review:

As a wargame, EL is one of the best Iíve seen in recent years. It is balanced and simple to learn, but rewards the player with extended play and by putting some thought into army selection and upgrading units. Further depths can be tapped into in multiplayer and it is these attributes that might make this title a cult classic in years to come.The AI is better than most strategy titles of recent years and the computer can provide a reasonalby stiff test, especially on medium and hard difficulty settings.
The gameís appearance is very easy on the eye. The landscapes and towns that comprise the playing surface are well rendered and colourful. The units are well modelled and their motion in movement and combat is smooth. The artwork in all the gameís menus and loading screens is of a similar standard and this is a real strength of the game.
ELís only problems are in terms of the plotline, script and voice acting, but these pale in significance to the gameís sheer playability and compulsive qualities.
EL is a game that will delight old school strategy fans and may well convince some younger RTS fans that Total War is not the only game in town (if youíll pardon the pun). Itís graphics are pleasing on the eye, while the game mechanics lead to a balanced affair with real depth and great multiplayer potential.
Virtual Programming recently announced it will be bringing the game to Mac users sometime this year. For the full review click over to the page listed below.
