The first couple of games in this series, the original Spellforce, Shadow Wars and Dragon Storm, were mostly enjoyable blends of RTS and action RPG, playing like a cross between Elder Scrolls and Warcraft. However, this sequel is perhaps one for the truly dedicated fan, as it doesn't really develop the core gameplay much, while the story is also pretty confusing, even if you do know what's going on. The narrative revolves around the escape of Zahzhut, his pursuit of revenge on the land of Eo and the struggle of the Gods and the Shaikan to contain him. So, even if this does make any sense to you, you're likely to find the ensuing tale somewhat contrived, forced and probably not all that enthralling. And if you're a newcomer to the franchise, well, you're going to be hopelessly lost. The gameplay is similar to the earlier games, with the aforementioned blend of RTS and RPG mechanics, as you explore a new series of worlds, completing quests, and engaging in large scale battles against a variety of enemies. Perhaps the game's biggest problem is that despite being made several years after the earlier ones, it just doesn't feel like it's moved on at all. The gameplay is pretty much the same as before, with just a few new ideas implemented, while the graphics are also stuck in the past, and while that might once have been acceptable, now they just don't cut the mustard. As mentioned, the story isn't great either, while the whole thing is pretty short, so when you combine all these issues, you're left with a less than must play game.
