Fantasy TBS, adds three new races to the original
With Age of Wonders: Shadow Magic, the original game received quite a few new additions. Still, the most important is the addition of three new races. But, besides those, the game also has 5 new episodes, and a great roaster of new scenarios. Plus, if you feel creative, you are going to find the new modding/level production tools included very helpful, for new material or for editing the already included material. So, with that in mind, if you love HoMM titles, this game will feel just as meaty and as interesting. It's got building, it's got strategy, it's got role playing and tactics. And all of this is dressed in really carefully chosen graphical clothing, maybe a bit on that commonly accepted look for fantasy top down games, but nonetheless even in that niche it does a great job. So give it a try, it expands the original and it keeps you playing and mighty entertained, as it sure got everything going for itself! Naturally, it won't satisfy those that want a very current looking game, say, those that have Played HoMM 5, but for the rest, it will provide an absolutely great package.
