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.
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 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 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.
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.
Endless Legend makes a few notable tweaks to the 4X genre and steals Civilization's lunch money 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.
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.
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.
