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

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

Elemental: Fallen Enchantress Review (PC)

Softpedia
1 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Fallen Enchantress is everything that Elemental promised to be two years ago and more, a game that mixes quite a few genres very well and gives the player all the elements, from gameplay mechanics to lore, to create interesting and deep fantasy stories. I would have liked a little more direction during the early game and better pacing overall, but the game is still addictive and engaging.
  • Pros: + Strategy depth, + Role-playing options, + Fantasy world
  • Cons: - Difficulty level, - Complexity

  • Summary: Fallen Enchantress might be considered something of an apology letter as much as a game. Stardock Entertainment's strategy/fantasy role-playing game mash-up attempts to make up for the disaster that was 2010's Elemental: War of Magic , finally delivering the game that many were expecting way back when. Virtually all of the missing features and bugs that were lamented two years ago have been addressed here.
  • Pros: Compelling turn-based gameplay keeps you coming back for more, Great empire-building options provide long-term strategic depth and replayability, Aggressive, challenging AI, Eerie, atmospheric music contributes to the fantasy flavor
  • Cons: Extremely tough in the beginning, Not enough variety to the predictable tactical battles, Dated battlefield and unit visuals
