SpellForce 2: Demons of the Past - Reviews

by Couchpotato, 2014-01-21 00:43:56

Hee are two more reviews for SpellForce 2: Demons of the Past.

CGM - 3.5/5

Every criticism of this game comes back to how rough and untested the game feels. Frequent bugs stretch out the playtime and add just enough irritation to push me into a rage. The game has a frequent loading bug, for example, that will crash when loading saves, often with no indication except for a frozen progress bar until you Alt-Tab (a pair of keystrokes I use liberally with any game). These are not just small flaws, but major glitches like, for example, your troop capacity setting itself to 80 and preventing you from building a large enough army to beat the bosses.

MMORPG - 5/10

If you’re a big Spellforce fan that’s been eagerly waiting to see the end of the story that started 8 years ago, you’re essentially the target audience. The game has a handful of redeeming qualities and it can be refreshing to play something so decidedly “old-school”, but the novelty wears off quickly. There is a lot of content in this game that could potentially occupy your gaming habits for dozens of hours, but it’s ultimately just not worth the time investment. With so many other great RTS, RPG and RTS-RPG hybrid games out there, I cannot in good conscious truly recommend playing Spellforce 2: Demons of the Past.
