Eador: Masters of the Broken World

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: 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. Eador: Masters of the Broken World 's similarities to Heroes of Might and Magic , Age of Wonder , and Kings Bounty gave me confidence, and then the leisurely-paced campaign tutorial taught me how to play an entirely different game.

  • 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... only adds to the boredom factor on the earlier shards, but in a custom game you have no such restrictions.

Eador: Masters of the Broken World

DarkStation

  • 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. Eador can satisfy your appetite for a long time, if you can tolerate the early monotony and the meat grinder learning curve.

Eador: Masters of the Broken World (PC)

ccgr.org
21 June 2013
  • 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 of worlds, called Shards, and you have a recipe for a very difficult, long game.
  • 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

Eador: Masters of the Broken World Review

GameSpot
14 May 2013
  • Excerpt: 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 difficult to plan around. It gives you the option to tinker with systems you can't understand until the game offers a half-baked explanation.
  • 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’s not a lot of strong competition for this style of fantasy strategy game these days, but even if there were, Eador: Masters of the Broken World would still contend, based on its successful marriage of tactics and scale.
  • Pros: Graphic engine scales remarkably well, story arcs and writing are well done, massive worlds that can take hundreds of hours to conquer
  • Cons: Building construction can be confusing, combat tends to be slower than you’d prefer, largely a remake of

  • 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.

Eador: Masters of the Broken World im Test: Heroes of Might & Magic trifft Age of Wonders

PCgames.
2 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Während die Echtzeitstrategie in den letzten Jahren ins Hintertreffen geraten ist, kommen Rundenstrategiespiele derzeit zunehmend wieder in Mode. Der neueste Genre-Zugang heißt Eador: Masters of the Broken World, ist eine interessante Mischung aus Heroes of Might & Magic und Age of Wonders und bietet eine enorme Spieltiefe.

Eador: Masters of the Broken World

3 September 2013
  • 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. Toen eind vorig jaar een remake van Genesis werd aangekondigd was ik nieuwsgierig, maar sceptisch. We zijn inmiddels enkele maanden verder en ik heb behoorlijk wat tijd aan Eador: Masters of a Broken World besteed.
  • Pros: Uitdagende en diepe combat, Managen van je kastelen, Optie tot verkennen, Mooie beelden
  • Cons: Automatisch vechten te effectief, Waardeloze interface, Veel bugs

  • Excerpt: В 2009 году увидел свет оригинальный «Эадор», инди-проект за авторством одного человека — Алексея Бокулева. Эта пошаговая стратегическая игра с простенькой 2D-графикой оказалась настолько глубокой и интересной, что сумела приобрести определенную известность у ценителей жанра. К развитию игры подключились студии Snowbird Game Studios и Unicorn Games Studio, результатом чего стало появление ремейка с подзаголовком «Владыки миров».
