  • Excerpt: Spellforce 2 : Shadow Wars promises a unique mix of RTS and RPG. I’m always sceptical when I hear something like this, because with such a mix chances of disappointing both sides are very high. All the same you never know, so a little curious I started to play this game.

  • Excerpt: Blending RPG and RTS elements, SpellForce 2: Shadow Wars puts you in command of an army tasked with defending the known world from utter evil. OK, so the innovation doesn't exactly carry through to the narrative plot.
  • Pros: ups: Large world and imersive story, control of Hero units.
  • Cons: downs: Not much variety in weaponry, system hog.
