Pride of Nations

Game Boyz
2 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Pride of Nations, developed by AGEOD and published by Paradox, is a turn based historical simulation strategy game. Essentially, this means that, if you don’t like anything slower paced than Supreme Commander 2, this is definitely not for you. Lots of tables, rules, policies, and numbers are the stock in trade of Pride of Nations, and it takes a fairly hefty brain to take it all in. But once you wrap your head around it, it’s interesting and enjoyable.

Pride of Nations review

Gamedot
14 June 2011
  • Conclusion: It’s simply not enough in grand strategy games any more to proclaim how deep and complicated your game is – they have to be accompanied by sensible design and solid guidance to mitigate the overwhelming complexity of the first hours of gameplay. Pride of Nations has near-bottomless depth, but good luck getting at it.
  • Pros: Depth. Rewarding in the long-term.
  • Cons: Shoddy tutorials. Stripped-down scenarios. Painful loading times.

  • Summary: Ontwikkelaar AGEOD vindt de markt van turn-based strategy games nog lang niet verzadigd genoeg, dus komt AGEOOD met Pride of Nations op de proppen, maar enkel een andere tijdstempel is niet genoeg om de game vernieuwend de maken.
  • Pros: Tactisch prima, Modus systeem werkt effectief
  • Cons: Doet amateuristisch aan, Erg traag, Landkaart lage resolutie, Niet vernieuwend

Pride of Nations im Test

GameStar
21 August 2011
  • Excerpt: In 15-Tages-Schritten zur Rente: Gegen das sperrige Paradox-Strategiespiel Pride of Nations wird selbst Hearts of Iron zum rasanten Echtzeit-Strategiespiel. Wir haben das historische Hardcore-Abenteuer im Test.
  • Pros: animierte Handelswege, bunte Weltkarte, ssende Musik (Beethoven, Dudelsack, Nationalhymnen)…, ordentliche Truppenbalance, gute militärische Strategie-Ebene …, historische Charaktere und Uniformen, man hat wirklich das Gefühl, eine große Nation zu spielen, Bedienung per Drag-&-Drop, mehrere Anzeigemodi für die Weltkarte …, sehr lange Kampagne (1.680 Runden!), vier militärische Szenarios (15 bis 78 Runden), die acht wichtigsten Nationen der Zeit sind spielbar, Nationen ...
  • Cons: krümelige Info-Bildschirme, generell nüchterne Darstellung, wenige und steife Animationen, … die sich schnell wiederholt, insgesamt dünne Soundkulisse, … schwach umgesetzter Rest (Forschung, Diplomatie), Schwierigkeitsgrad nur durch gespielte Nation wählbar, trockenes Feedback, zahlenlastige Präsentation, teils Leerlauf, … aber zu viele Untermodi und mangelnde Angaben, winzige und teils unsinnige Buttons, wichtige Meldungen gehen völlig unter, alle übrigen Länder nich...

  • Summary: От провала ее спасают только сценарии, посвященные войнам (англо-бурской 1899-1902 гг. и русско-японской), восстанию сипаев и Рисорджименто. Там AGEod чувствует себя в своей тарелке, выдавая геймплей фирменного качества. Коротких кампаний мало, но за игру и просят-то всего 20 долларов.

Pride of Nations

Level 7
11 July 2011
  • Conclusion: Pride of Nations är ett invecklat spel med ett gränssnitt som påminner om en kinesisk pussellåda. Skickligt designad mekanik drunknar tyvärr i hafsig presentation och det krävs tålamod och vilja att hitta till den goda kärnan.
  • Pros: Enorm precision, Historisk detaljrikedom, Gott om speltid
  • Cons: Dåligt optimiserat, Värdelösa instruktionsuppdrag, Uruselt gränssnitt, Osynligt bakgrundsarbete, Förbryllande detaljer
