Legendary Heroes a nearly legendary update for Fallen Enchantress’ heroes

Quarter to Three
9 August 2013
  • Excerpt: A lot of the changes in Legendary Heroes are the stuff of solid patchwork. Lots of rebalancing, tuning, interface improvements, and supposed improvements to the AI. I say supposed, because I still get the sense that the AI players don’t quite understand the importance of grabbing land and keeping a strong army together. But they play by the rules and there’s plenty of challenge to be had, unlike many other strategy games with AI shortcomings.

Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes

Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: So, while it’s not quite a case of rescuing a victory from the ashes of an unmitigated disaster, Stardock should be complimented for refusing to admit defeat and not burying Elemental under the floorboards. Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes is now a solid fantasy 4X game with plenty of mechanical depth for those who delight in tweaking parameters, if still lacking that certain spark to elevate it into the top tier of the genre.

Expert Review

GameSpot
4 June 2013
  • Summary: Elemental: War of Magic seems a long time ago. The 2010 turn-based fantasy game from Stardock came with a lot of expectations, most of which were soundly dashed due to a tremendous number of design flaws and bugs. The developer has been making amends, however. First came the generous announcement of two stand-alone expansions that would be given away to buyers of the original Elemental. Second came the news that these expansions were actually very good.
  • Pros: Cities function more realistically now, with automatic resource production, New fame score mechanic gives your heroics tangible benefits, Loads of tactical tweaks that give combat much more depth
  • Cons: A few lingering crash bugs

Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes (PC) Review

26 May 2013
  • Summary: Overall, Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes is an enjoyable game that doesn’t quite have the right mixture for what it’s trying to accomplish. It is fun, but things in the game aren’t put into detail, so you don’t know why you’re doing them. It is rough around the edges somewhat, but is still worth a look, if you’re a fan of the 4X genre. Especially since the Civilization 5 expansion (Gods and Kings) kind of stunk.

Review: Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes

Everyday Gamers
21 May 2013
  • Excerpt: From the original, buggy release of War Of Magic , the universe of Elemental has seen some turmoil.  Seemingly rescued with a critically acclaimed new release of Fallen Enchantress last Fall, things are certainly looking brighter.  Not satisfied with the myriad of accolades and acclaim Fallen Enchantress has garnered, Stardock has looked deep into their crystal ball and overhauled the game.
  • Pros: Updated Hero system rewards your actions with heroes, rather than randomly unlocking them, New graphics engine, new monsters, new skill trees, Great pricing for new or returning plans, Added depth to customize Champions, Tons of content and replayability
  • Cons: Champions do not bring armies when recruited, Lack of a “line of sight” requirement for ranged attacks

Strategy game mixes tactical combat and hero characters.

Common Sense Media
2 May 2013
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes is a deep, top-down strategy game that can engage players for hours and hours, rewarding equally peaceful and militaristic solutions. It bears some resemblance to the popular Civilization franchise but is more granular and tactical. Players assume the role of a sovereign in charge of one of eight factions and try to expand their faction's power.
