Endless Legend Reviews
Endless Legend makes a few notable tweaks to the 4X genre and steals Civilization's lunch money in the process.
With systems layered upon systems and a strong focus on narrative, Endless Legend is a deep, compelling strategy game that feels distinct from its contemporaries. Amplitude studios are quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the 4X market.
While the AI in Endless Legend is rather lackluster the rest of the game provides a fresh perspective on the RTS/4X genre.
If all of this wasn't enough to suck me in, they've also included the ability to create custom factions. Throw this on top of a multiplayer component with up to eight players, and I can see myself dumping endless hours into this incredibly fun game.
Despite my mixed feelings, I still think Endless Legend is worth a buy, but if you're strapped for cash, you might be better off just waiting for Civilization: Beyond Earth.
Complex but certainly not mind-boggling, and challenging yet never irritating or unbalanced, Endless Legend manages to seamlessly blend stunning visuals, an original fantasy universe and the joy of a 4X title's gameplay that will deprive people of their precious sleep with that good ol' "Just one more turn" feeling. Those expecting to start it today and master it tomorrow will be disappointed, though, since it will require a bit of time to be learned - something that certainly isn't exactly most gamers' cup of tea. The rest, however, are in for a tasty treat.
Endless Legend is a excellent 4X game that takes the genre in exciting new directions, expertly blending hard Sci-Fi and high fantasy in the process.
If you're looking for a game to tide you over until Civilization: Beyond Earth comes out and pick up Endless Legend, you might be surprised to find yourself lost in its world for much more than just a month.
Unique empire choices, deep and intuitive management, tactical and effortless combat, diversifying RPG content; there is enough here to last ages and it all runs wonderfully.
The game does stumble a bit with its battle sequences and slow start, but I would recommend Endless Legend to anyone that is a fan of the genre, or even newcomers who are looking to try it out.
Endless Legend is a game worthy of every penny for its price because of the amount of content the players can engage themselves on. Plus, the level of sophistication its gameplay has means that players will definitely get the right amount of entertainment and challenge in every playthrough that they do.
