The Dwarves Icon
Beautiful
by klcln, France - Jul 19th 2018

The game is beautiful, the music is nice and there is the song by Blind Guardian playing during the credits at the end.

But it's short, has very little replayability and it's so focused on the main plot that it can feel rather linear.

I haven't read the book but it's pretty standard fantasy fare if you're familiar with the classics and are a fan of RPGs. The story does have its moments and things pick up near the end but it may sound a bit too generic depending on your background.

RPG elements are limited to a few skill choices and decisions that play out like a choose your own adventure gamebook. You don't get to create your own character but the main character in this game is likeable and the voice acting is pretty good.

The main issue is the combat which plays pretty much like an RTS game. It's a bit messy and your guys are always facing overwhelming odds. Don't get me wrong, it does contribute to the epic dimension of these fights but it also gets old pretty quickly especially considering that you have to micromanage your party (of up to four characters) because if they're left to their own devices they never use their special abilities. If you want a more hands off approach then you will need to lower the difficulty and even then you will probably have to babysit your guys and gals and swicth around between characters every five seconds to activate their abilities.

It's not a game that I would recommend to people who may feel jaded about high fantasy and stories about dwarves and elves and considering its length you may want to wait for a sale but if you like the little bearded fellows and want to experience a short tale (probably around 8 hours of gameplay) then you could do worse.

Not for everyone

Definitely not for everyone but a game that will reward you for taking the time to appreciate what it has to offer.

Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes Icon
What else
by klcln, France - Jul 19th 2018

If you're into the genre it's a safe bet that you will really enjoy what this game has to offer. If you're not into this genre chances are you may still like it provided you approach the game with an open mind.

So so
by klcln, France - Jul 19th 2018

Your experience may vary but if you're looking for something with more depth you probably won't enjoy your time with this one.

Joe Dever's Lone Wolf HD Remastered Icon
Choose your own adventure
by klcln, France - Dec 21st 2017

This game will probably please old fans of the game books and it is a pretty good translation from the page to the screen but if you're going in bear in mind it can get a bit grindy and repetitive sooner rather than later. Still, if you're a Lone Wolf fan chances are you're going to like it. Last but not least if you're not into puzzles make sure you pick the Sixth Sense discipline as it will be a big help.

Crusader Kings II: Jade Dragon Icon
Absentee Landlord
by klcln, France - Dec 21st 2017

This DLC doesn't bring in China but makes it into an absentee landlord. If you're playing in the East you will have to go out of your way to please and cajole the Emperor but if you're anywhere in the West it will be business as usual.

Crowntakers: Undead Undertakings DLC Icon
A Worthy Addition
by klcln, France - Dec 21st 2017

This is a pretty good DLC if you enjoy the base game then you will like this. The new character and challenges are enjoyable and make for much added diversity.

Age of Wonders III Collection Icon
The Collection is the best package
by klcln, France - Dec 21st 2017

The game itself is not without some flaws but they are overshadowed by the possibilities it offer. Bear in mind that this is focused on warfare. If you want a peaceful fantasy civilisation building game it's not the game for you. Last but not least campaigns can be a bit tricky but random maps are a great way to get to grips with the game.

Tropico 5 – Complete Collection Icon
Tropico only better
by klcln, France - Dec 21st 2017

I had doubts about this one but after playing it I can say it still feels like Tropico and the additions are a lot better than I expected. The division in eras alone make for a much more dynamic gameplay.

Jagged Alliance: Flashback Icon
Decent but still lacking
by klcln, France - Dec 21st 2017

The game looks good and plays rather well but it's also a constant reminder of how great it could have been if it didn't feel so undercooked. Keep your expectations low and you shouldn't be too disappointed.

Beautiful point and click game with a great atmosphere, music and visuals. It can get a bit challenging at time but the overall atmosphere helps keep you in the game while you look for the solution!
