SpellForce 2: Demons of the Past - Reviews

Here are two more reviews for the just released SpellForce 2: Demons of the Past.

Geeked Out Nation - 77/100

Spellforce 2 – Demons of the Past is going to be a very polarizing title. There are a number of very neat ideas and mechanics that are implemented quite well, after seven years they better be, but also comes with the steep learning curve, some frustrating glitches and some unpredictable difficulty. If you are a fan of the series then you are going to love the game and will want to pick this up and see how the story finally ends. If on the other hand you aren’t, then you are going to have to ask yourself if the RTS/RPG aspect of the game enough for me to deal with the steep learning curve, and at the price, and with the amount of content the game has it just might be.

Pure News - 8/10

I recommend this game to any RTS player who enjoys this type of games from the old times, I however do not recommend this game to all types of players. It might get too repetitive for some persons especially if they’re not in for the lore.

If you’re interested in the multiplayer part, I’ll just tell you off the bat that this game isn’t on par with current competitive RTS games such as Starcraft 2. It’s fun to drop in and have some fun like the old Age of Empires III times but if you’re expecting a competitive balanced multiplayer game, you won’t find it here.

Overall if you’re looking for an epic campaign story and a fun multiplayer this is the game for you. If by any luck you want to play some game close to the Warcraft RTS series but in a more modern game I’ll tell you immediately that this game is for you.
