Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars
Top Critic Average
I've been enjoying the game a lot… more than I was expecting to in fact… which is not to say that I thought I wouldn't like it… just that I've been going back to it, time and time again… normally I'd go from one game to another… but I've just been sinking hours into this and can see myself putting quite a few more into it.
A valid entry in the genre of turn based strategy games. It offers some unique gameplay features but in some areas it suffers from oversimplification.

Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars will not threaten any of the giants of the turn-based strategy games but for console players, it offers an accessible alternative with a fun dark fantasy twist.
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.

Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars is a strategy game that has the perfect atmosphere for the season we currently find ourselves in, and we're not strictly talking about Halloween here! Some cumbersome menu navigation and mostly unchallenging AI means that without even local hot-seat multiplayer, players looking for more challenging opponents will unfortunately need to look elsewhere. Still, console gamers who are desperate for more strategy games should look to Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars to get their fix, and at a wallet-friendly price point of $49.99 to boot.
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 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.
Streamlining many of the typical strategy game mechanics while adding more depth with the cards system and tactical battles, Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars is a game worth playing for all strategy games and role-playing games fans. While the experience tends to become a little repetitive over time, the different factions and the many customization options provide all the tools for players to make the experience feel fresh even after tens of hours.
Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars is a dark and bloody turn based strategy that hits the mark with lore, artwork, story, and music. The battles can use some work with not only making maps a bit bigger to give more strategic choices, but also the difficulty that ramps up significantly. The addition of cards in battle is quite fun, but lackluster on the map. But if you're a fan of vampires, I think you'll enjoy IR. Immortal Realms is currently on Steam for $39.99.
