Developer: Crasleen Games

Genres: RPG, Strategy

Warbanners is a turn-based, tactical strategy game with role-playing elements. Managing a squad of mercenaries, the player will experience the story campaign's 42 missions, battle through a meticulously crafted fantasy world, and achieve the ultimate goal: become a true legend! Key features: • Create and modify your unique, well-prepared army; hire and equip soldiers, develop their fighting qualities, and learn new exotic skills. • Hire assistants! They will not participate in battles themselves, they never engage in dangerous activities, but they will provide you with several bonuses and options. Expect a catapult, poisoned enemies, increased morale, and much, much more. • Immerse yourself in a multi-faceted battle system that takes into account a variety of factors, including landscape morphology and lighting, each unit's field of view, morale, and even fatigue. • Manipulate the battlefield environment to gain tactical advantages! Freeze rivers, chop down and burn trees, dig trenches, construct bridges and barricades, and so on. • Choose the optimal level of difficulty for your tactical fantasy RPG experience; from easy for beginners, to nightmarish for sophisticated tacticians. With every step you take in Warbanners --each and everyone marked by blood and iron-- an invisible but deadly threat will become more tangible. Darkness itself, brooding in the corners of your soul, shall become ever more palpable. Who said earning your place among ancient legends would be easy?

Warbanners Reviews

Warbanners becomes quickly unplayable. It's not pretty to look at or listen to, the story isn't all that engaging, and the interesting tactical elements are hard to find under all the tedium. I would say that only a die-hard of the genre would appreciate it, but then, a die-hard would be turned off by the design flaws. It looks like we'll have to wait a little longer for the next turn-based masterpiece.

The good ideas are there, the tactics can be complex, but the overall design of Warbanners is completely broken to the point of souring the entire experience.

For the genre, Warbanners hits many of the right notes. There are a few issues with controls for selecting units or performing the right action, but largely it's a decent tactical RPG. The graphics are horrendous, which goes beyond a simple aesthetic and becomes difficult to tell what is happening at times. Barring this negative, the game was made with heart, and those looking for a fantasy tactics game will like what this presents if they can get past the visuals.

Warbanners lets you lead a mercenary army and engage in tactical warfare, but can't command your attention for long.
