Spellforce 3


Some cross-genre games are combined like ingredients in a mixing bowl, while others let their two halves exist side-by-side. This game falls into the latter category, as it pairs both, role-playing and real-time-strategy elements. Even though the end result is anything but cohesive, such a distinct design keeps the player from falling into a consistent routine. It also broadens the viewpoint of the conventional fantasy RPG, expanding the restricted worldview of a handful of adventurers into the more open perspective of a general controlling an army. Its starting missions serve as an extended tutorial, which first give you the basics on how role-playing works and then moving into base-building strategising. The game’s end result may not be ground-breaking, but it is an entertaining and interesting tweak presenting much to those looking for something unusual and engaging.
