Age of Wonders: Planetfall Review
Age of Wonders
I've always sat and watched the Age of Wonders games carefully, eyeing them on various Youtube playlists and channels. I never really felt the urge to jump into an AoW game until now. I got the chance to get a code from PR for Age of Wonders: Planetfall and I have to say, right now, this is one of the best strategy games I've played on my Xbox One since Stellaris.
I'm a bit of an armchair ruler to be honest, and whilst some of the systems often go over my head in many of these games - and they always did on PC. Often, these strategy games are presented as so-much obscure gameplay mechanics, with little or no help for a new player, and oft appear as opaque as smoky coloured glass.
Age of Wonders: Planetfall isn't like this, and it's hugely accessible for a first timer like me from the get go.
I really appreciate this in a game as deep as this one.
AoW Planetfall is a fantastic entry to the 4X genre. It is the perfect jump-in point for new fans to the series or the genre. It is packed with replay value and has a fantastic soundtrack which is worthy of the best video game OSTs of this year so far. Hugely fun, extremely accessible and loaded with tactical options. I cannot recommend this game enough.
