Summary: This game is incredibly hard and impossible to pass on easy. I had to cheat and add ten units on one map and I still lost. I just don't see how you can beat anything past the second level. Anyone who says that they beat any of them is probably one of the developers and therefore, lying.
Summary: There is no doubt that this game is difficult, but the challenge is intellectual, not how fast you can click, as it is turn-based. It is not complex to play, but strategy really matters in this game. Units carry between missions, as do unit losses. Play sloppy, it will hurt you in later missions. One detail I like, is there is a turn-limit on each mission.
Summary: First of all, the most common complaint about this game is that it's too hard. And it is hard, casual gamers need not apply. Elven Legacy and it's predecessor Fantasy Wars are inspired by Fantasy General and the Panzer General series. This is old school hex based strategy. If you're interested in a strategy game focused on tactics with a steep challenge you will love this series. The First of all, the most common complaint about this game is that it's too hard.
Summary: I really wanted to like this game. I even like the art and graphics (in 2011). But it really is too hard, even on the easiest setting. AI is good, but since you're heavily outnumbered, the game becomes unfair. And there's nothing as disappointing as seeing the AI gang up on your carefully nurtured elite unit and wipe it out in one turn.
Summary: A great wargame - a genre that has been quite rare in the past years. Decent storyline and presentation, simple yet deep mechanics, good map design, excellent challenge level. A must play for wargaming-fans, and a big recommendation for fans of tactical RPGs and turn-based strategy games.
Summary: Being an ardent fan of such turn based titles as HOMM, Disciples, AOW and Warlords I really wanted to like this game. Playing the game on easy mode and getting completely crushed in the second scene of the campaign, however, was quite a surprise. I found success on further attempts but it seems to me the game takes the fun out of exploring each map, as you must move directly to the Being an ardent fan of such turn based titles as HOMM, Disciples, AOW and Warlords I...
Great turned-based hex strategy game, in a fantasy setting.

Conclusion: For all intents Elven Legacy is a fantastic example of how do the easy thing right and develop a cracking game. Without doubt this wonderful game has been crafted to perfection. It uses the perfect formula for turn-based strategy games.
Summary: Da ich Spiele, gerade mit Elfen, besonders liebe habe ich mir diese Collection gegönnt. Vor allen Dingen war einer der Hauptgründe dafür, die Anmerkung "Komplett in Deutsch". Das hat aber scheinbar dem Synchronsprecher keiner gesagt, denn der spricht ausschließlich Englisch. Fazit: Das Spiel verstaubt nun ungespielt in meinem Kellerregal.
Summary: Elven Legacy ist ein rundenbasiertes Strategiespiel mit RP-Elementen. Die Einheiten sind ausgwogen, die Level (der Kampagne) abwechslungsreich, die Grafik der Zeit angemessen und auch heute noch absolut annehmbar. Insofern hat es viel Spaß gemacht und gibt es vier Sterne. Eine Besonderheit im Vergleich zu anderen RP-Strategie-Titeln ist der strenge Zeitplan der Missionen und ihr strategisch-präziser Aufbau.
