  • Summary: Curious about Armies of Exigo? You’ve come to the right place. You need to know two things off the bat: Exigo has beautiful graphics and Exigo extends RTS gaming into a multi-planed battle front. Not succeeding with your aboveground campaign, send your miners into the depth to tunnel you toward success. Oh, and by the way, yes this is another rip of the Warcraft series. Alright, let’s cut to the chase. This is another Warcraft copy.

  • Excerpt: Fantasy RTS, a genre everyone will know by now due to the big hits, Warcraft 3 anyone ? The whole genre in known because the world is filled with creatures we don’t get to see in normal life like orcs and elves. And of course there are always a couple of humans that are trying to lead a peaceful life in between this bunch of, mostly, irregulars who like most to kick everyone else out of their world.

  • Excerpt: Date: 7/19/2005 I think that it is not very good form to use other games as comparison points when reviewing a game, but sometimes the influences are so strong and so obvious that you do gamers a disservice by not mentioning them. In this case, when you first begin to play Armies of Exigo you may find yourself reaching for the game box to verify that the game is not the latest offering from Blizzard as the similarities to their Warcraft and StarCraft games are striking.

Game Vortex

  • Excerpt: At first look, Armies of Exigo doesn’t look like much of a step forward for the RTS genre, and you’d be right. For the most part, Armies of Exigo is your standard, run of the mill RTS in the vein of StarCraft . Those who look a little deeper will find Armies of Exigo to be a polished game offering some neat little twists that, while not revolutionary, still add some interesting elements to the genre.

  • Excerpt: Chris Massey once again straps on his trusty blade, smashes a helm onto his big noggin’, and wades into waves of minions in order to recover the truth about Armies of Exigo — or at least a decent review that drops from one of the Beast underlings…

  • Excerpt: I’ve been in a bit of a funk concerning real-time strategy games. I think most of my peers might call it "burnt out." My daughter might call it "bored." All the same, I just haven’t been playing them as much. Back when the genre was starting to gather steam, I couldn’t stop playing them. An evening with Warcraft II was pure nirvana and as for Command and Conquer: Red Alert, oh my!

  • Conclusion: The visuals are crisp, with detailed, nicely textured characters models. Although, like the rest of the game, their designs are a bit lacking in imagination, with the exception of the twisted, multi-legged Fallen. The gigantic portraits of each of the characters are well animated, but without any variety or anything interesting to say, they lack the personality that the designers were obviously attempting. It also seems to eat up too many resources.

  • Conclusion: Armies of Exigo might not be highly original and might not have a big name attached to the game but it's a quality RTS that veterans of the genre should not ignore.

  • Excerpt: EA's take on Real-Time Strategy (RTS) gaming, Armies of Exigo has all the convoluted interfacing, resource hording, multi-tasking and micro-managerial hoopla that seems to endear fans of the genre.
