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.

Superb faction design and twists on 4x genre conventions, combined with rather passive AI (even at higher difficulties,) mean Endless Legend is a strategy title that falls frustratingly short of being sublime.

The best way I enjoyed this game was to fire it up in the morning, grab a cup of coffee, and prepare for a few hours to vanish.

Almost everything about Endless Legend's grand strategy works in lush, beautiful harmony…except the endgame.

It's the smart faction design that's the key – Amplitude has done a fantastic job of creating races that feel distinctly different from each other, each offering an interesting new take on traditional 4X gameplay. I don't think Endless Legend is quite the finished article just yet, but there's a solid and likeable core experience here that deserves your attention.

Daunting to an almost discouraging degree at first, but once you get the hang of it you'll get sucked right in, and afterwards you'll probably need a cooling off period before trying again. But you WILL try again.

Endless Legend combines fantastic fiction with compelling strategy. Underpinning it all is a strong design philosophy that connects the tenets of the 4X genre together seamlessly, while providing a plethora of options without being overwhelming. Even during a time when we're seeing a lot of 4X offerings, it sets itself apart, promising something different from its contemporaries.

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.

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.

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.

Endless Legends tries to overcomes flaws by focusing on strengths. Unique factions, in-depth customization and beautiful art will keep you hooked and wanting more. It isn't perfect, but it is still a solid strategy game.

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.

It's a 4x game, sure, but it's a not a high or low fantasy one. It's weird fantasy and the weird cuts through to the playstyles as well as the art and fiction.

Endless Legend doesn't quite measure up to some of the longer standing series, but it gets very close. For a relative newcomer, that's a big deal.

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.

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.

In spite of this, Endless Legend gets my full and unfettered recommendation. If you like strategy games, fantasy/science fiction hybrids, beautiful art, and just plain having fun, you should already be downloading Endless Legend from Steam today.

The best part of Endless Legend is its interesting and vibrant setting. Each faction is unique with a rich history and lore that can be uncovered through the course of gameplay. The world of Auriga is divided into regions that are claimed by a single cities, affording players with the incentive to explore further into the unknown.
