Paradox’s International Elf Service

I kept on meaning to go back to Russian developer Ino-Co’s spectacularly derivatively named Fantasy Wars, but i didn’t get any further than the demo. Tim Stone liked it though. But Paradox appear to be offering a second bite – they’ve announced they’ll be selling Elven Legacy from the same company, which is clearly an updated spanglified a-slightly-better-name Fantasy Wars.

It’s Fantasy Wars. The 355mb (Or just over 22 peggles) demo includes two levels. The first is a little simple, but the second allows you to have all the orcs and knights and similar as you desire. It’s closer and more combat (as opposed to exploration) driven than the Heroes of Might and Magic games. Main feature that stands out is the Civ4 like purchasing of traits for your armies as they (rapidly) gain experience, which is pretty neat. Also, it has a name that’s so generic it kind of loops around into being incredibly awesome. Developers – take heed. We won’t be happy until Infinity Ward bring us Shooting Game. While it actually hits the shops in February in the UK, it’s already available to buy online if it takes your fancy.
