It was just so refreshing to play a 4X game that wasn’t obsessed with making everything as needlessly complex as possible, while taking as much of your time as it could to do it. If only more games in the genre took the hint…

Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars is a title for vampire fans, with shallow empire management but a combat system to match. If bloodsuckers aren't your thing, maybe this game isn't either.

Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars is an engaging strategy game that fuses empire management with turn-based combat with a unique gameplay and inspired storytelling section.

At first glance, Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars may look like a simple copy of older titles but the new mechanics that has been put over the classic formula has made a world of difference. From the visual standpoint, Immortal Realms may not be something to write home about but the world building and characters that populate that world makes this a great new franchise starter in one the oldest video game genres.

I still feel like Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars has some potential behind its flaws. The idea of a more streamlined strategy game, with less of a resource management and empire-building focus, is something that could be appealing for newcomers to the strategy genre. However, its huge maps and clunky combat drag the experience down. Furthermore, without multiplayer or a map editor, there is not really much more to the experience than the campaign, which is only somewhat engaging. Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars certainly has enjoyable elements, but feels difficult to recommend to fans of the strategy genre.

Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars is not a bad game. It is, however, a game that missed its chance at greatness.

Average in every respect, and with little to reward or keep you playing, Immortal Realms Vampire Wars is a dull strategy sim, concealed behind an acceptable veneer. When the night is over and sunlight reveals its true form, it’s your will to play that’ll have dried to a husk.

Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars presents a very satisfying mix of different genres and aside from some UI quibbles along the way, does a good job of porting over from PC to console. The presentation works well with the vampiric theme, and while the narrative itself is nothing all that unique, the different campaigns are fun to venture through all the same. Fans of single player strategy games with some RPG and card game mechanics should enjoy this offering despite some of its flaws.

Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars does have some pleasingly involved battles, but as a grand strategy game, it is a tad simplistic and limited in scope compared to the titles it draws inspiration from. Still, the campaign provides for an entertaining romp, and it’s well worth delving into these dark realms if you’re a fan of the strategy-RPG genre.
