Age of Wonders 3 - Preview @ Strategy Informer

by Couchpotato, 2014-02-25 05:29:58

Strategy Informer is the next site to preview Age of Wonders 3. Here is a brief snip.

Despite my personal issues with early pacing, I don’t mind declaring “so far, so good” on this one. At the end of the day, it’s all a matter of momentum, and once you get going these issues become less critical and tense. New issues can arise though, and I worry that there won’t be much to sustain the game in the ‘late-game’ phase, when all the mystery is gone and it becomes purely an Empire-vs-Empire slug match. Which is interesting in its own right but it always leads to the ‘critical mass’ problem, which primarily war-focused games like these (traditionally) don’t handle that well. Still, you shouldn’t be worried, and this is definitely one to look forward to!
