Über das Spiel

Dreihundert Jahre sind vergangen, seit die Schattenkriege Keldonia und die Welt Aer verwüsteten. Diese Kämpfe der Vergangenheit sind längst zu Legenden geworden.

In den Hochlanden von Fareach hatten sich Krieger der Barbarenclans im harten Nordklima das Überleben gesichert, indem sie sich gegenseitig bekriegten und die reicheren Grenzland-Städte überfielen. Die Grenzland-Clans hatten die ständigen Angriffe satt und baten das Imperium um Hilfe. Dieses mächtige Reich kontrolliert das ganze Land, von den Scharlachbergen, über das Cynehelm-Tal, bis zum Hoarwood. Die westliche imperiale Legion wurde ausgesandt, um es mit den Hochlandräubern aufzunehmen. Mit der Hilfe der Grenzland-Clans Iseal und Machnar töteten sie den Hochkönig Brendan in der Schlacht vom Wyrmpass.

Ein Abkommen wurde unterschrieben, das im Namen des Friedens allen Clans verbot, in die Grenzländer überzuschreiten. Seitdem gab es keinen Hochkönig, der die Clans vereinte und sie verfielen inneren Streitigkeiten und Räubereien.

In diesen dunklen Zeiten wurde dein Clan von Falir Einauge angeführt, einem Krieger mit großem Ansehen. Du bist sein Sohn und Erbe und bist darauf aus, dem Clan-Rat und deinem Vater zu zeigen, was du drauf hast …

Das Vermächtnis
Fantasy General II ist die Neuauflage eines Strategiespiel-Klassikers der 90er! Erneut treffen im kriegsgebeutelten Land Keldonia Armeen aufeinander und eine neue Generation Kommandanten stellen ihren Mut und ihre Taktiken auf die Probe. Fantasy-Kriegsspiele sind wieder da!

Die Kämpfe
Ganz in der Tradition des Originalspiels gibt es bei Fantasy General II rundenbasierte Kämpfe. Führe über 75 verschiedene, einzigarte Einheitentypen, einschließlich mächtiger Helden. Berücksichtige das Terrain, die Waffen, die Rüstungen, magische Effekte, Moral und die Balance der Kräfte; erstelle einen Plan, führe ihn aus, vernichte deine Feinde und erkämpfe dir einen Ruf als brutaler Kriegsherr.

Die Kampagne
Kampf um Kampf musst du Entscheidungen treffen und deine Armee entwickeln. Die jungen Clanmitglieder müssen ausgebildet werden. Erhalten sie genügend Erfahrung, können selbst die blutigsten Anfänger zu Champions werden. Aber Vorsicht: Teuer erkämpfte Siege können schlimmer sein als Niederlagen. Werden kampferprobte Einheiten ausgelöscht, verschwinden auch ihr Fortschritt und ihre Erfahrung.Jede Einheit hat spezielle Fähigkeiten, Waffen und Rüstung und sie können mit im Kampf gefundenen magischen Artefakten ausgerüstet und mit vom Feind geplünderten Gold und Ressourcen verbessert werden.

Die Clans
Eine Konföderation von autonomen Bergstämmen, die ihre Unabhängigkeit schätzen und bis aufs Blut darum kämpfen. Stelle Axtkrieger, Berserker, Speermaiden, Trolle und Schamanen auf, beschwöre Geister der Urahnen und mächtige Elementare, trainiere flinke Eberreiter und tödliche Werbären oder rekrutiere Söldner von Langbogenschützen bis Zentauren.

Das Imperium
Das mächtigste Reich in ganz Aer.Stelle dich den mächtigen Legionen des Imperiums und ihren magischen Kreationen von Drachenkanonen bis Golems, sowie den untoten Horden, die sie in den Kampf führen. Oder bekämpfe unterwegs Harpyien, Echsenwesen und große Drachen.

Die Welt
Die Welt von Aer ist voller Schönheit und Wunder. Von den kalten, magiereichen Hochlanden von Fareach, Heimat der Barbarenclans des Spielers, über das Grenzland mit seinen fruchtbaren Flusstälern und tiefen Wäldern, wo Hexen und Monster frei umherstreichen; vom Tiefland, das durch eine große Katastrophe unterging und mit gefährlichen Sümpfen und Echsenwesen gefüllt ist, zum edlen und gemäßigten Imperium im Süden, Heimat wundervoller Städte, die von untoter Magie aufgebaut wurden. Deine Kampagne wird dich auf sehr unterschiedliche Schlachtfelder schicken, daher wirst du unterschiedliche Taktiken und Armeezusammenstellungen benötigen.

Extremely well done SP campaign (so far), with sometimes LONG maps. I have finished Onslaught, and love the versality. Personally, for me the MP shines. Map generation is in active development, and the studio actually responds to questions in decent time. I look forward to many more hours with this game, which is amongst the best computer game I played in recent time. (I never played the original FG, though).

Ich bin auf ein Hype reingefallen. Fantasy General 1 habe ich gesuchtet. Das hier spricht mich überhaupt nicht an. Es fühlt sich an, wie eine Kopie des ersten Teil, geschrieben von einem Informatikstudenten aus fernem Osten. Mit jeder neuen Karte schwindet die Motivation. Die Mechaniken sind simple, Darstellung der Einheiten auf der Karte unübersichtlich, und die Schwierigkeit des Spiels besteht aus immer mächtigeren und zahlloseren Gegnereinheiten auf folgenden Karten, während der eigene Fortschritt minimal und unbedeutend ist. Nach ca. 10 Stunden Spielzeit erreicht man den Punkt, an dem man keinen Bock mehr hat auf aussichtslose Schlachten. Ich habe ganz unverschämt nach 10 Std. eine Rückerstattung beantragt - wer weißt, vielleicht klappt es. Das Spiel fliegt so, oder so von der Festplatte. Schade nur um die 20 Euronen. Alter! Man hat sogar die Mucke aus dem ersten Teil übernommen! Welch eine großartige Entwicklung......

I tried to like it. The developer seems very nice and engaged. It is just that the game lacks the real FG feeling and is just not enough fun.
Main problem: You need to learn where the enemy appears in each map and then check that you get the first shoot. This was ok back in the SSI PG times, but today this is just poor game design.

I even tried the DC - I really wanted to like it.

Sorry, aber wer es mag Karten mit allen ihrem Loot zu erkunden und nicht schnell durch die Level stressen will, für den ist dieses Spiel leider nichts. Wenn man in Ruhe spielen möchte und sich den Gegner zurecht stellen möchte verliert man den Boni und kann nach hinten heraus seine Einheiten nicht ordentlich Upgraden... Gegner zu Umgehen scheint bei mir auch nicht so recht zu funktionieren... Spaß bzw der gewisse Sucht-Faktor wollen sich bei mir nicht einstellen.

Für Freunde von Rundenstrategie ein Fest. Ich habe das originale Fantasy General geliebt, und hier gibt es einen gelungenen Nachfolger. Ich mag die Story mit interessanten Entscheidungen, die sich auf die gesamte Kampagne auswirken. (ich habe sie noch nicht durch, daher weiß ich nicht, ob andere Entscheidungen wirklich relevant etwas ändern). Ich habe schon weit über 50 Stunden spannende Spielzeit und kann daher für mich eindeutig sagen, dass das Spiel sein Geld wert ist!

Wow, nach 113h habe ich die Kampagne nun durchgespielt. Ich bedanke mich bei den Entwicklern für dieses tolle Spiel. Unterhaltung auf sehr hohem Niveau. Sehr motivierend aber auch anspruchsvoll. Man sollte schon etwas besorgt sein um das Leben seiner mühevoll hochgelevelten Einheiten und einigermaßen klug mit seinen Ressourcen umgehen, um eine Chance zu haben das Ende auch zu sehen. Ich habe einige Monate für die Kampagne gebraucht, nicht weil es mir langweilig war, sondern weil man sich damit ruhig Zeit lassen kann. Die Story ist bei weitem nicht so komplex, dass man nach vier Wochen Spielpause den Einstieg nicht mehr finden würde. Trotzdem will man wissen, wie es weiter geht und man freut sich jedes Mal auf die nächste der durchaus abwechslungsreichen Karten. Eigentlich fand ich es schade, dass man aufgrund alternativer Storyentscheidungen nicht alle Karten spielen kann. Damit beschneiden die Entwickler eigentlich sinnlos den Gesamtspielumfang der Kampagne. Der Wiederspielwert ist meines Erachtens sowieso nicht gegeben. Der Aufwand wäre viel zu groß, nur wegen der paar zusätzlichen Kartenalternativen nochmal alles durchzuspielen.
Also kurzum, das Spiel ist toll, fordernd, motivierend, sehr schön ausbalanziert und kostet nicht viel. Absolute Kaufempfehlung für Strategen die stressfrei und gemütlich spielen wollen.

Tipp: Unbedingt den ersten DLC kaufen. Die geflügelten Einheiten sind ein must have!!!

It's hard for me to say exactly why I love this game. It has a way of making every decision that is taken seem gravely important to the task at hand and often leaves me wondering what would've happened had I done things differently.

I like the scarcity of resources that you accumulate to upgrade your army, which makes me painfully and carefully consider how I should spend them to hone certain aspects of my army rather than going through and rubber stamping units in chronological order.

I find the missions themselves to be challenging to the point that when victory is achieved I feel a smug satisfaction, but not so challenging that I find myself save scumming.

I'm a sucker for turn based games anyhow that I can pick up and put down at a moments notice. If you like that sort of gaming too, I think you'd enjoy this one.

The story is interesting, the gameplay fun and strategic, graphics and sound are quite good. This pearl definitely deserves more attention. I am glad that I already bought the General Edition, so I'm really looking forward to the DLCs now.

WOW!!!!! What a game, I really did not expect I would get that much into it, but I sure did. 66 hours, I beat the campaign. I know there are skirmish battles and multiplayer I have not done. But as far as the story, I found it exciting, sad, funny, all mixed. So many surprises from start to end. It is bitter sweet finishing, I will miss my adventures with this. I hope more content will come. As for my review, I love the tactics, leveling units, loot, great music, good story. I recommend this to anyone that loves a good viking adventure.

This game is kicking my butt!

I've played a lot of strategy games since the good old DoS classics, and this is bit of a gem for the simple reason, its both very challenging AND fair. Fair, because each time I've wiped failed, I can see what I did wrong.
Sometimes its due to lack of game knowledge given my low hours, but most of the time I could've done something better - more scouting, less greed for kills, played more conservative ect.
(playing the DLC campaign on Veteran difficulty with iron maiden enabled for reference)

So aside from the welcome challenge, what is there to like?

The graphics are nice. They aren't amazing but things still look good, and even potato rigs should be able to handle this game.

Story is delivered mostly through text boxes, but there is one.

The resource game is quite strong, not only do you need gold (to hire units, mercenaries, upgrade units and hire leveled replacement soldiers for your squads instead of taking an XP hit for hiring free rookies), you want all manner of other goodies like weapons, armour and mana that is needed to upgrade specific troop paths depending on what you want.
Every spend feels like it has impact and importance on the long run, as your army carries over mission to mission, like the original Homeworld, except units also gain experience, so every loss really matters.

The variety of enemies is quite impressive, and the units that the player can recruit (depending on their starting hero) might seem limited, but with upgrade paths you have many options.
And you can find or be rewarded new units during missions, which, of course have their own upgrade paths ensuring endless army compositions and variety.

Overall I'm really enjoying the game, and I strongly rate the DLC which adds many new units, and most important, procedurally generated campaign.

Awesome successor to Fantasy General. My only complaint is the main campaign is broken. After the last mission in the swamps, when the next stop is the Dragon Isles, the last narration screen showing dialogue in between missions is simply blank, and you can't skip past it in any way. Game hasn't crashed, it's just stuck on a null narrator card. So the main campaign is unplayable. Other modes work fine though. Lots of fun to be had.

The new Invasion DLC brings Fantasy General II a lot closer to and reminiscent of the original. After a few hours of play it looks to be a great and must have DLC. Several different leaders now to chose from to lead you in the new non linear campaign. New units too. Flying ones also. My Great Eagles were instrumental in getting me through one of the battles. Really enjoying the multiple and varied paths that you have to chose from as to where to battle next on the Campaign Map. Did someone from the initial company of SSI have something to do with this? If not, the new guys definitely took a page out of their book! In my opinion a big move in the right direction. Don't think twice. I highly recommend the game with this add on. Enjoy!

I'm about 30 hours in. I'm a long-time gamer as well as above average tournament chess player.

About 1.5 to 2 hours into this game, I was ready to uninstall. I just wasn't feeling it yet. What I realized was that for some reason I was thinking I was simply going to open each new scenario and easily steamroll the enemies. As far as I can tell, that's now how this game works. Sure, that should be obvious. But I wasn't in that frame of mind. Once I shifted my mental space, I dumped 20+ hours over a few days!

The highlights of this game for me are unit selection and development. You can hire base units which you can then upgrade along several different paths, e.g., do you want your basic spear infantry to upgrade into mobile hit-and-run cavalry or straight up tanky spear formations (who even provide armor auras to friendly units at top tier). Do you want your basic sword infantry to turn into ranged slingers, shock berserkers, and on and on.

As you'd expect, these units function very differently and crafting your army how you envision it has been a blast.

And I've not even touched on hero development or loot.

One potential negative, depending where you're coming from, is that some of the scenarios can take time. It's not uncommon for me to spend 1.5 - hours on a scenario where I'm at in the game right now (and I'm not even that far). Maybe I'm a slow player, but my point is that sometimes the battles take quite a while to finish. Of course you can always save and exit.

One final note, another reviewer suggested play on iron man. On one hand, YES! (and it's the only way I've played). At the same time, I've started over several times due to making mistakes and I could see home some players would rather re-load than restart.

For me, I love this game. However, I say that knowing it's not for everybody, even in the turn based strategy world. If you're looking for quick, snappy battles this is most certainly not for you. A single battle/mission can take a couple hours. But if you're in it for the long haul and you're looking for a hex-based strategy game where you calculate your every move then look no further. The icing on the cake is it has troop upgrades, a loot system, and nice little skill tree for your heroes. Set in a Warhammer-esque fantasy world hits the nail right on the head. Exactly what I want out of a game like this, but that's just me.

While I would recommend this game for its own merits. It is challenging and fun. However, the first game was much better imho. This game obviously has updated graphics and systems (although this game could have been made 10 years ago, nothing too flashy here). I actually preferred the flat view of the units and terrain. It was much easier to see where they were . I also preferred the number for the health instead of the health bar.

This game has a stronger narrative and the choices make for interesting gameplay, but the original was superior in almost every way.

Well, once again Slitherine is involved when it comes to take a beloved game and remake it sp that you end up longing for the original.

This game is not bad, but it could be so much more. Just like Sanctus Reach was not bad, but it wasn't as good as the old Chaos Gate. In the exact same manner, this game is good, but not as good as the old Fantasy General.

There are only two factions and the only thing that has been significantly improved are the overall graphics. I wills till play the campaign to the end, just like I did with the last game from Slitherine I played (Sanctus Reach), but I regret buying this. I recommend using your money on finding the original instead.

I didn't hold out much hope for this game. It looked to me like a boring old civ game.
So, imagine my surprise on finding this game to be extremely good. It's the width of a puddle but deep as a ocean.
The mechanics along with the story, heroes and generous/varied amount units have the game rock. Along with giving you a great and satisfying experience.

When not on sale it is a little on the expensive side but in my opinion the price is justified.

So yeah it actually is the spiritual successor to the old game which is what 25 years old; and it's awesome. So far I have only played the first 5 campaign missions. It has everything I was hoping for heroes, monsters, upgrades, skills, artifacts, and spells. The strategy is good with stuff like flanking, skirmishers, long rang support, terrain effects, yet it isn't overwhelming. It's manageable. Very fun. So glad I bought it. Wanted to put up a quick review for people who are on the fence like I was. Not sure what the haters are prattling on about. Get it.

This is a great game, very well thought incarnation of 'general' series with own distinctive set of rules. Graphic and music are very good, units can be upgraded in multiple ways, tactical combat of medium complexity is very interesting and (depending on difficulty) demanding. Campaign missions are interesting and very well designed, gradually introducing player to game concepts. Honestly this is a sleeper hit for me. I consider Panzer Corps 2 a great game but this one is even better and a no-brainer for fantasy fans. Highly recommended!

Being a fan of Turn-Based Strategy and also Fantasy settings i tried it and do like it a lot. You are getting quite attached to your units. Customization with various upgrades and items and also skill trees on hero units are well done.

Game mechanics are a bit more in depth compared to some other TBS games but not overdone, it's worth having a closer look how everything works. Some parts are not all that obvious i.e. my personal highlight armour piercing working also with magic damage. :) There is some puzzle to be solved which i like and if you get some practice you will be able to find some really interesting and powerful combinations of skill or spell uses and tactics.

Also was quite fond of the looks and immersion the game world, story and units offer.

FG2 is a game i can recommend, especially if you like the combination of Fantasy and TBS.

I played the original Fantasy General on my younger days. It's my all time favorite turn-based strategy game. Now i'm having a blast with the sequel, although something feels lacking compared to it's predecessor. There are only one playable faction on campaign unlike the original with 4 factions/heroes to choose from. Luckily i can recruit units from another faction/race later in the game. Also the game feels tedious at late game. The map kinda too large and uninteresting where enemies are separated in groups across the map. I have to move my units one by one from one blob of enemy to another where sometime the distance is too far it become a chore.

But despite those complaints, Fantasy General 2 offer many other things that can force me to give it a thumb up. It has decent graphics, smooth animations, soundtrack from the original Fantasy General (make me feel nostalgic), non linear campaign where each choices has consequences, lot of heroes and unit roosters to be fielded, trained, upgraded, and equipped with tons of artifacts; and surprisingly this game has good AI, combined with terrain bonuses/penalties, they add more depth to the tactic and strategy.

A must buy for every fans of turn-based strategy genre. 8/10

I really enjoyed the beginning of the game, but it pulled a frequent issue I have with strategy games like these: it scaled primarily through number of units. As action economy goes up, each individual action becomes less relevant and more tedious. If I was already getting irritated by the number of units I could control a dozen missions in, then things were only going to get more and more irritating as the campaign continued. I'm rather sad about it, since I really did enjoy the game while the number of actions felt spot on.

This was... disappointing to say the least. Having played hours of the original Fantasy General this felt more like a poor man's knock off than a sequel. The original offered four generals to choose from, each with their own unique strengths and play-style. All unit classes were viable and needed to advance the game requiring you to master their strengths and unique talents. The research panel forced you to play smart, looking for all hidden locations to gain gold so you can advanced your units. Even the weakest of magic items felt powerful and useful, granting new forms of attack and abilities and the story was simple and to the point. Bad guy taking over the world, go wreck him. Despite that I found it very interesting none the less.

Fantasy General 2 has none of this. You're locked to one boring general unit who has a few paths to spec in but it's all pretty boring. You get to ride a bear, sure, but you feel very weak overall. The Barbarian faction that you're locked into is very boring with poor unit variety and even poorer viability. You learn early on that about 80% of the unit advancements are useless forcing you to focus on two or three unit lines. Unlike the original, there is no reason to keep a balanced army. I got one of those Imperial units which you can't hire normally from an event and I looked at their upgrade tree. REAL archers (not this slinger bull), advanced heavy cavalry, necromancers! Diverse and interesting units. All those things you want with the BASE game, but can only get if you buy the expansion and play that campaign. What do the barbarians get, Berserkers, Thanes, Shield Maidens. How very... ever Norse/Barbarian game ever. Maybe that's unfair, but with how much the gaming industry has forced Skyrim in my face for almost 10 years I don't care. I'm so sick and tired of reading and hearing the word Thane. Items felt weak and meaningless and the story. You spend half the time running around like an idiot not knowing what's going on and as such, you end up not caring. I didn't care for the story because it took so long to tell me what I should be caring for.

Sure, some of these problems may be fixed if you put more time into the game, but it just felt so uninteresting and disappointing I'm not sure I want to put more time into it. I guess it depends on if I can get a refund or not. You know Steam. Oooww, I played the game for five hours instead of two. *sighs* Look, if you're coming into this game brand new with no expectations I guess it's a decent strategy game when it's on sale as I do think this game is overpriced for what it does offer. If you're an old fan and want that old Fantasy General feeling with a modern twist like me, don't bother. That's my opinion at least.

Bought with discount for 40€ in total (General edition with all DLCs)

Is it overpriced? Kinda. Yes.

Is it good? Yes. Lots of different big maps allow for plenty of real life tactics : from pincer maneuvers and sweeping to ambushing and guerilla tactics. However, these are not taught in game ! You have to already possess some basics of military tactics knowledge. Otherwise, you will just get frustrated when you constantly die during direct assault.

Piece of advise 1: choices matter ! Decisions made in the beginning of the game can make game very-very difficult later in the campaign and force you to restart from the beginning.
Piece of advise 2: having a well rounded army is difficult. Better decide on your main tactics from the beginning (guerilla tactics with berserkers or more direct approach with axemen, for example).

Also, I had to restart each mission very often since I discover more about the map while playing.

CONCLUSION :
Game is a must-have for fans of turn-based tactical games in spite of its price ! (buy it on discount)
Nevertheless, having to restart missions and reload saves makes game a little bit annoying and might not be for everyone.

Fantastic game. The complaints about the pricing are misplaced. Niche game genres like complex wargames or flight/racing simulators are more expensive because they sell way fewer copies than mass-market FPS games. If we want the genre to survive we have to be willing to pay for it or all we'll get is crap :(

I was really impressed with a couple Slitherine games recently. Gladius and Battlestar Galactica. So I thought for sure I'd like this. It's kinda like Gladius, sorta... two factions? Well, I like Vikings but...

Fantasy General 2 is one of the best turn-based strategy games I've played. Mechanically, the game is similar to many other wargames, with each faction taking turns to attack each other. But I feel the breadth of strategic choice and resource management through long campaigns is very well crafted.

The game is most easily described as 'meh'. It's not bad per se, but it's nowhere near its contemparies.

Where series like XCOM and Age of Wonders have evolved the turn-based tactics genre, Fantasy General is firmly stuck in the 90s. Which is good news for people who think the latest installments in the aforementioned two series got too complex, but for me I got bored really quickly of Fantasy General 2, despite having played the original back in the day quite a lot.

If I compare it to Age of Wonders - Planetfall, it falls short on EVERY facet: The units are more bland, the music is repetitive, there is a lot less to customize, there is a FAR less content when compared to the same amount of money, you have less tactical options, the AI is less intelligent and the meta-game between the tactical battles is FAR less involved and interesting.

I simply can't recommend this game over others in its genre, especially since the price is the same. You're better off buying Planetfall, Phoenix Point or any of the two XCOMs. If you're looking for high fantasy, I can recommend Age of Wonders 3. It's long in the tooth by now, but still in my opinion more fun than FG2.

I am not going to say this is a bad, game, just that its not for me. Basically this is nothing more than a lite fantasy tactical skirmish game.

What It is missing is a strategic layer. I was hoping you would build some kind of civilization / faction by making or capturing cities, choosing what to produce, etc...

Instead this is a super linear campaign, with no strategic layer at all. In between missions you can only recruit a very limited type of troops with some gold you get. To upgrade them, you need weapons and armor, which can not be bought, only found on the skirmish maps.

Anyway, the pure skirmish game play was not interesting enough to hold my interest, especially since you can only play one faction, barbarians, in this fantasy game.

If pure, tactical game play appeals to you, then you might like this game.

Disclaimer: I'm an old gamer (late 40s), so my preferences may differ from younger players.

Pros:
Interesting story line
Hero character progression enjoyable
No crashes/bugs found

Cons:
Steep learning curve (game provides very little guidance)
Limited resources leave no room for experimentation
Enemy receives unlimited resources (especially mana)
Enemy overpowered in general
Movement can become tedious

Summary:
Wanted to like this game, but it's too hard to enjoy. Other reviews recommend save scumming for better results; if that's what it takes to play the game, the game isn't balanced well. More frustrating than fun.

Leaving a down vote here, due to the devs locking threads about people not wanting intrusive ads in the launcher from the developers.

Imagine locking threads and claiming that something does not exist when in that same thread another dev said existed, lol.

the game itself is decent, nothing special, but don't buy it at full price, or any dlc, check out the digital sites and get it for 1/3 the price, more of a reasonable price for the game and dlcs.

Anything from slitherine/matrix store/publishing used to be quite niched which is why in the past they could get away with simple graphics/mechanics in games that's not even voice casted for more money then a tripple A title. However that time is long gone. Adapt to a growing market or keep losing sales and making desperate decisions like forcing intrusive ads on your customers, in a pointless launcher that just pi**es people off in the end.

Fantasy General II is a turn-based strategy game with fantasy themes which focuses on tactics and gameplay. As a loose comparison, think of a modern-day Warcraft III but without base building or Blizzard's lore/sense of humor. The base game features an extended campaign made up of several dozen maps, a storyline, and playable characters. There are two major factions (Barbarians & Imperials) and many minor factions (trolls, harpies, beasts, dragons, & undead).

Since there's no base building, your army is the core of the game. It's made up of heroes, regular units, and mercenaries. Heroes are unique units with powerful skills, regular units have a leveling tree and can specialize in a range of roles, and mercenaries are only employed on the map which they're hired. You can make an army any way you like and there's no one way to complete a map. There's enormous depth and replayability - I'm at 60 hours and roughly halfway through the campaign but I tend to play extremely thoroughly. Someone less thorough could probably finish the campaign in 30-40 hours.

Although FG2 has lots of content, it does lack cutscenes and levity which makes the content feel dry. The gameplay can also be pretty brutal for casuals, so this is not a game intended to appeal the masses. The tutorials could really be much better. Though there are tooltips on about everything, what's needed are simple missions to clearly demonstrate the proper use of unit and terrain types. I want to see tutorial missions added to the game to smooth the learning curve.

My biggest gripe is all the stuff that's left unexplained, some intentionally. This is a mistake in my opinion and makes the game frustrating for first time players. Many dialogue choices affect the game in significant ways that aren't apparent at all. For example, at certain points in the game you are given 3 dialogue options and each one has a significant effect on the game, but the effect isn't explained at all or hinted at. Why? I would have liked it if the devs included hints/icons for dialogue choices and minimap positions of ruins/shrines. It takes nothing away from the game and means less time spent reloading earlier saves.

Despite it's flaws, the gameplay of Fantasy General II is really masterful and plays like an AAA studio game. There is so much depth and content here for fans of the strategy genre. I love the unit design and building my army to explore the map and conquer the enemy for victory in battle. Yes, I would have liked more simple QOL additions, tutorials, and hints but I'm not deducting a large number of points for that. And yes, cutscenes like a Blizzard game would've been nice, but this studio doesn't have the budget and staff of Blizzard so that's really not something which they can control and I think a direct comparison is unfair. For that reason I'm not factoring this into my final score.

All said and done, after 60 hours I rate the game 8/10 and my recommendation is to pick up the base game or sale, because there are more campaigns available with DLCs. You can even play Fantasy General II Prologue free to get a feel for the gameplay (be aware the difficulty of the prologue ramps up much more quickly than the base game though).

Do I recommend this game? Yes.
Do I think there's still room for improvement? Also yes.

PROs:
- nice graphics (the terrain is really beautiful and the units fit in well)
- the campaign seems good (OK-ish story, not too boring, but doesn't keep you on your toes either)
- the unit skill trees seem quite varied and the units themselves are interesting
- the map design is also varied, definitely seems like you're exploring the world map, fighting your way through different regions
- I like the fact that you're offered a few story decisions every now and then, which then directly impact the course of the battles

MEHs:
- UI (the tooltips could be much better, explaining more of the game mechanics, the buttons could use a bit more detail and not look like they're from 15 years ago)
- the maps seem pretty small
- the resources used to upgrade the units are very limited and searching the maps left and right for some scrap and then having it behind an RNG just adds insult to injury
- there definitely needs to be a marketplace system (e.g. buy one set of armor for 100 gold)

CONs:
- overall value for money, at least at full-price
- only comes with two factions, although the campaign has plenty of missions
- controlling villages and towers doesn't provide the tactical advantage one would expect; perhaps some villages should drop some resources every couple of turns (e.g. one set of weapons for every 3-4 turns you control it)
- sounds are next to nothing

Been playing Battle for Wesnoth for a while now (long before it made its way to Steam) and the similarities are obvious. FG2 has nicer unit trees IMO and much, much better terrain graphics, while Wesnoth definitely seems more tactical by granting income and healing bonuses inside villages.
The base game should be $20 and DLC should be priced at $10 each. This ain't an AA(A) title and the price should reflect this.

Overall: 7/10 with good potential for raising this score.

I got it as part of a Humble Bundle deal, and I cannot recommend it at full price.

Pros:
-Decent graphics, I like the UI of the unit progression trees
-Interesting unit variety and cool setting
-The gameplay feels solid and consistent

Cons:
-The sound design is bland at best and grating at worst. Music is very repetitive and uninspired.
-While unit variety is nice for 1 faction, there are only 2 factions to play
-Story seemed hammy and didn't capture my interest (this very much comes down to personal preference)
-My biggest issue: while gameplay is solid, consistent and has very few bugs, it offers nothing new or exciting for me. The game doesn't offer me an incentive to play it instead of Fire Emblem, Disgaea or other similar turn-based tactical RPGs. If the gameplay was the same but the presentation was impressive, it could maybe compete, but as things stand the game feels mediocre compared to what else is on the market, especially considering the price point. Maybe it's because I only got through 3 hours, but these first 3 hours really weren't able to keep me interested if there was a good part to get to later on in the game.

Nice enough game, well made and looks good, but I find it just too hard even on easier difficulty levels. Yes it's probably because I'm not very good, trouble is after a while at failing to progress you just lose interest and drift away don't you? For example the most recent game my force was totally outnumbered by a seemingly endless stream of enemies that were unstoppable. Where is the fun in that?

I really had high expectations for this game. It has very good mechanics and it's very creative, but the wealth timer kind of took away much of the fun for me. I know timers are designed to increase difficulty, but in this case there is just too much weight on the clock, as you even loose loot in map locations if the timer runs out (which makes no sense). That's really unfair in a game where locations are also hidden by the fog of war. That's obviously designed to make you go the same map again to get better results once you know where everything is. I played many TB games, and if there is one thing I hate, it's playing a known map again just to cheap out more resources, as replaying maps is too easy and boring. Maybe if the loot wasn't timer dependant, or if the fog of war afected only enemies, not locations, it would be more fun. This way to extend play time is not attractive to me, so I got a refund, but I still highly recommend the game for people who enjoy replaying known maps.

A very good game 8/10

I did not expect much when buying this and it pleasantly surprised me in every way.

- The Good:

- Decent content even without DLC
- Meaningful choices and campaign paths, adding replayability
- Very nice unit/hero upgrades and gear
- Very well thought out game and battle system; not overly complex but still never too easy
- You can explore each map for treasure locations or you can finish it quick and get bonusses that way, and even try both
- Looks good
- Distinct variety of combat roles for units and heroes (ranged, melee, tank, atrillery, flying, scouts, hidden, all with different damage types)
- Immersive (for lovers of strategy and fantasy alike)
- Okay music, though it gets repetitive

- The Bad:

- Nothing much except I would welcome some more races to recruit from (I got about 4 sources of troops, I know there are more through choices), adding more variety to the army roster
- Some maps are cluttered with difficult terrain (mountains, swamps, forests etc.) crawling your units to a halt and making it a tad tedious

I liked this more than some of the WW2 games from Slitherine, because the fantasy setting gives ample opportunity for gear, upgrades and unit diversity.

I played the original Fantasy General long ago and it was always one of my favorites. This is similar enough to that but much more modern. If I recall, old Fantasy General had experience levels and you could use gold to upgrade your units. This game is the same except there is a unit upgrade tree and there are more resource requirements for certain units than simply gold. This forces you to make some choices with your limited resources so it's great. Hero units also have a skill tree and can gain spells and abilities. Overall just a great turn based strategy game.

I want so badly to like this game. The concept is great, the unit progressions, the story, the visuals, the combination of exploration and combat - unfortunately, the actual gameplay consists of 90% save scumming and replaying the same mission over and over because you can only win if you know what's going to happen ahead of time. Which means by the time you progress to the next mission you're already bored.

This game doesn't offer a lot to dazzle a player. The graphics are outdated, The mechanics are pretty shallow, there is little to nothing to do in between battles, the storyline is almost non existent HOWEVER it does a great job at what it focuses on doing and that's to provide very good TBS battles without a RNG. The simplicity of the game was actually a breathe of fresh air for me as I was able to hop right into battle and learn as I played without having to read guides, watch tutorials or spend countless hours crunching numbers to field a good army. When I say the game is simple that's not to say it's easy because as an avid tbs gamer I've already lost a few tough fights on normal mode.

If your looking for a decent TBS war game without all of the trappings of 4x games then pick up fantasy general, you'll definitely get your moneys worth.

Being a big fan of real time battles like Total War Warhammer (and having around 35 years of gaming experience) I did not realize turn based battle games could be so much fun until I played this. This game is much better than the screenshots and info would suggest.

The combination of game mechanics are absolutely great. The mixture of battles, army management, unit and hero upgrading, exploring and looting is great and very addictive.

Coupled with a really good story and excellent and often funny script writing. Yes it is primarily text based but, that has its plus side in having the more reflective nature of reading a book rather than watching a movie (and it is much better than what you get in AAA titles like Total War Warhammer). I can only conclude that those who have criticized the story in other reviews, primarily focus on Nobel prize winning literature as their reference point... The material in this game is good enough as the basis for a great blockbuster movie that would be much better than the majority of the tripe that comes out of Hollywood…

The atmosphere that is conjured up in the game is a wonderfully creative fusion of Norse and Celtic mythology, some Ancient Roman flavors, mixed with more fantastical fantasy elements.

This is all enhanced by the great graphics, animations, artwork, music, and sound.

If you like war games, turn based games, fantasy etc you will love this. I bought it on sale for around $27 but definitely worth the full asking price!

I play a lot of turn-based tactical games, not a lot of war games. This game is as much a tactical RPG as it is a war game. It takes the best of both worlds and combines them into one addictive package.

Tactical RPG:
- Heroes level up, spend skill points on a skill tree. Units also level up, getting bonuses as they do. All units persist from scenario to scenario.
- Unit positioning matters a ton. Units can support each other and to rain plays a big factor.
- Maps are dense. Expect a few large battles per map rather than several insignificant engagements.
- Choice based narrative. Several options for how to shape a story that isn't the selling point but is engaging.
- EXP Is much more strategic. All units within a three hex radius of a killed enemy unit get EXP. No more boring juggling of who gets the kills.

War Game:
- Great resource management. Resources can be spent buying units, upgrading units, training units, and preserving EXP for units that suffer casualties.
- Diverse unit roster where every unit serves a purpose. Lots of strategies for how to build an army.
- Unlike most war games (the reason I rarely play them) moving is rarely a chore. I hate spending multiple turns moving across an open field just to get to the point where I can actually do something interesting. Not the case in Fantasy General 2. Since maps are so dense I'm always analyzing where to go, who to attack, what objectives to go after.
- Missions are challenging. Good variety in the objectives and layouts. Rewards creative thinking.
- Unit supply cap increases gradually and at a good pace. Rewards good long-term planning of squad composition.

Out of the 20 hours of played so far, I've been bored for maybe 10 minutes. I can't say that about very many games. The only downside is FG2 doesn't fall neatly into a singles genre. But I think anyone who likes tactical RPGs like Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy tactics or turn-based tactical games like XCOM 2 should at least download the free prologue. It's not nearly as in depth or good as the main campaign but it is a decent sampling.

And you HAVE to do it.. you dont.. you lose. Because EVERY move, EVERY attack has to be PICTURE PERFECT.. or your campaign is over before it even starts. You lose a unit? You cant complete the campaign. EVERYTHING about this game is designed to ONLY be completed on PERFECT runs. Or you reload and start all over again.

This is shitty game design wrapped in nostalgia goggles.

Wish I could get my money back...

Surprisingly good. Given its pretty generic name, I wasn't expecting much from this title, but it actually ended up being pretty enjoyable. I only played the campaign, but it's quite enjoyable and a fun little strategy title. There seem to be a few places where you can make choices that shape the game a bit, though I haven't played through it multiple times to see how much difference these make, but I have played enough to see that the central combat mechanics are enjoyable and strategic without being overly convoluted and complex as is sometimes the issue with war games.

I'm a little older and played the original Fantasy General as a teen and it was on of my favorite games. I'm not sure how it would hold up today - and there's too many new games to play to go find out. With that being said this is an EXCELLENT successor to that game. The play isn't super original but it's well done. For me, this is a perfect blend of nostalgia and modern features.

Gets really repetitive after a while causing players to lose interest.
