  • Summary: It's never fun to purchase a game you're excited to play, only to discover that it's an incomplete mess. Yet if you purchase Elemental: War of Magic, whether from a retail outlet or developer/publisher Stardock's own Impulse distribution service, that's exactly what you'll get.
  • Pros: Solid turn-based formula may cause you to lose a few hours to its spell, A nice amount of strategic flexibility
  • Cons: Loaded with crippling bugs, Terrible interface and player feedback, The AI fails to put on the pressure, Tactical battles aren't worth the effort, Plenty of slowdown in spite of the unimpressive visuals

  • Excerpt: It’s always a good thing when you can feel the potential a game has. That early feeling a game gives you can set the expectations of what’s in store for you as a player. It excites you and drives you to discover more and see if the game has realized this potential.

Elemental: War of Magic Review

  • Summary: Elemental: War of Magic is a fantasy-themed strategy game for PCs that doesn't feel quite done. This buggy, hard-to-understand game is made all-the-more frustrating by the fact that there's nothing else out there quite like it.
  • Pros: Deep, fantasy-themed strategy., Handsome, cell-shaded kingdom, Stardock seems serious about evolving their game
  • Cons: Obtuse, undocumented rules., Bug-ridden code., Feels like a work in progress.

  • Summary: Ambizioso e potenzialmente un capolavoro sulla carta, l'ultima fatica di Stardock viene invece affossata dalla fretta avuta nel lanciarla sul mercato.
  • Pros: Ha tante potenzialità...
  • Cons: ...ma sono state tutte vanificate da una quantità abnorme di bug e problemi vari, Il multiplayer è ingiocabile (come il resto del gioco), Soffre di rallentamenti assurdi
