While the AI in Endless Legend is rather lackluster the rest of the game provides a fresh perspective on the RTS/4X genre.
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.
Endless Legend is a lovely game with deep strategy that's a singular pleasure to play, but can sometimes disappoint you in finer details. Know that if you're never going to play multiplayer, you're not getting the whole experience - so bring a friend.
Endless Legend makes a few notable tweaks to the 4X genre and steals Civilization's lunch money in the process.

A brave, stylish take on the Civilization formula.
While this may not quite topple the Civilization series, Endless Legend has plenty to offer for 4X and RPG fans alike.
Welcome to the new king of fantasy turn-based 4X strategy. While not perfect, this game has achieved many of its lofty goals. A must-buy for any fan of TBS games, Endless Legends could put a dent in the sales of that other big game coming out soon. It is that good.
Endless Legend offers one of the more refreshing entries in the genre, and it will destroy your sense of time and disrupt your sleeping pattern. This should be a sign to anyone that Endless Legend is not only a successful turn-based strategy title, but also a great game.
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.
