Fantasy Wars - Review @ CVG

by Magerette, 2008-02-28 18:10:59

Fantasy Wars, the fantasy strategy game from Ascaron and Ino-Co we've covered for RPG overtones, gets a short, blistering review at ComputerandVideogames.com, who call it 'farcical' and give it a 3.5/10:

I would tell you the whole story, but there's no point - it's exactly the plot you'd imagine from a game called Fantasy Wars: some man wants to save the kingdom, there's a council that thinks he's reckless, and somewhere in the middle he has to kill a load of orcs or goblins. Mix in some magical weaponry and whoop-dee-doo, it's Fantasy Wars.

The turn-based action is a mixture of crippling boredom, mild frustration and a mild sensation of imminent doom - based on a huge, hexagonal board-game style map with gigantic pawns that you control scattered across it...

There is a chance, no matter how slim, that you may have seen this game and imagined a world where you owned it. Now, right now, you must unimagine this world, and create a new one in which Fantasy Wars does not exist.
