Eador: Masters of the Broken World
28 June 2013
Conclusion: Perhaps making it turn-based was the only way this game was going to work. In all honesty, forgoing the campaign mode and jumping straight in a skirmish might be a better proposition. Being restricted in terms of buildings, troops etc...
Conclusion: Eador: Masters of the Broken World has a lot going for it, but it buries a lot of its strong points under layers of monotony and frustration. It is a tough, but not impossible, game to recommend. If you are a hard core PC turn-based strategy junkie, your options or rather limited.
Summary: Putting the pieces back together I don't know why I thought that putting a world back together -- conquering various floating landmasses and combining them through sheer force of will -- would be easy.
Excerpt: Conquering a fantasy world usually isn’t easy. Since anything from necromantic sorcery to stone-faced medusas lurk around every corner, you’re always one misstep from death. Add to that the fact that Eador: Masters of the Broken World involves the player having to conquer a seemingly infinite number...
Pros: Good strategic world conquering; fun hero development
Cons: Sloppy animations and sound design; many random spikes in difficulty; not enough is explained in the tutorial
Excerpt: Now I can easily say that strategy games are not really my forte but I’ve dabbled in the genre long enough to learn a few tricks along the way. One niche of the genre that I’ve always taken a liking to are the turn based strategy and games like Eador: Masters of the Broken World for PC.
Summary: Done? Good. You can skip this paragraph and the next. For everybody else, Eador is a turn-based strategy game with a fantasy setting. It was written by indie studio Snowbird Games and has a very “indie feel”.
Game-crushing bugs overshadow the turn-based tactical goodness Eador: Masters of the Broken World offers.

Summary: Eador: Masters of the Broken World is too difficult to enjoy. Even on the easiest setting, it does everything it can to keep you from making progress. Whereas some games lay honest challenges and let you learn your way through them, Masters of the Broken World offers false information that's...
Pros: Combat keeps you on your toes, Heavy management focus scratches that tactical itch
Cons: Crashes and stalls frequently, Menus are crowded and difficult to use, Offers tactical misinformation, Multiplayer has severe connection issues
Excerpt: There are games that you play when you're younger that can have huge impacts on you, that you'll always look back on fondly. I've got a few; Alpha Centurai, C&C Red Alert 2, and more relevantly, Heroes of Might and Magic 4.
Summary: Laat ik jullie mee terug nemen naar het jaar 2009. In dit jaar wist een Russische strategy-fanaat namelijk een spel volledig in zijn eentje te ontwikkelen. Hiervoor was hij natuurlijk wel even bezig, maar het resultaat mocht er zijn.
Summary: Eind vorig jaar probeerde ik Eador: Genesis uit. De game bleek te moeilijk voor me te zijn, omdat er nauwelijks uitleg werd gegeven. Ik had geen idee waar ik mee bezig was en dat leverde in combinatie met de hoge moeilijkheidsgraad geen aangenaam resultaat op.
Pros: Uitdagende en diepe combat, Managen van je kastelen, Optie tot verkennen, Mooie beelden
Cons: Automatisch vechten te effectief, Waardeloze interface, Veel bugs
