Elven Legacy - Review @ Gamepex

Gamepex writes in about their review of Elven Legacy, which sports a score of 70% (and, oddly, a screen "borrowed" from IGN).  They criticse the dull tutorial levels and settle for the "you'll like it if you like this sort of thing" summary:

That is not to say the game is disappointing. Fans of the fantasy war game subgenre should be pleased with the overall quality and depth of strategy inherent to Elven Legacy. For those who appreciate more realistic war games, as I do, Elven Legacy is a great distraction while your latest copy of Empire Total War streams at snail’s pace off of Steam’s servers. The game also lacks a definitive multi-player feature. Sure, the option is on the title screen, but there is no one on the Elven Legacy server looking for action. Those searching for a completely immersive Fantasy RPG war game may want to look somewhere else. Getting past the game’s opening bugs is a difficult undertaking. However, if you are a more casual gamer who can appreciate a game for what it is, rather than what it’s not, Elven Legacy can be the perfect escape from your work, your nagging parents, your dog that craps everywhere, or those younger versions of you that live in your house and keep referring to you as “Daddy I’m hungry.”
