Age of Wonders III

  • Conclusion: It seems as if about one good turn-based, epic fantasy strategy game comes out every year.  If that trend continues to hold, then Age of Wonders III should be your choice for 2014.  The complex tactical combat that has given the series its identity is as strong as it has ever been.

  • Conclusion: Since I never played the earlier games, I can’t make the call as to whether or not this game was worth waiting 11 years for. Saying that, I’ve been waiting since I saw the game at GamesCom last year to get my hands on it, and it was definitely worth it.

IGN
2 April 2014
  • Conclusion: The quest for the ultimate fantasy strategy game will continue for a while longer, as Age of Wonders III only partially fits the bill. Still, it's a fairly successful return for a game series and style that seemed undeservedly buried.

  • Cons: Poor strategic choices, Interminable campaign
