Old School RPG Game? Interested, Read On….
Legends of Eisenwald is an old-school RPG with elements of strategy and turn-based combat. Gather your troops and embark on a dangerous journey to carve your name into the legends of the grim lands of Eisenwald, where all the supernatural superstitions of medieval times are found to be true.
The mysterious lands of old Germany are waiting for you – it’s a land where the superstitions of the time have come to life. This isn’t a fantasy game – there are no elves or dragons here. There are only people – and their passions, sins and fears that often take a tangible form.
It contains aspects of choice progression with players able to choose their path, play evil or good,even define what justice means to them.
Imagine a world in which medieval superstitions are true, but without the clichés of several fantasy games. Expect divination, alchemy, and a few magical creatures, but no elves or fireballs!
Character Choice – Play as a Knight, Mystic, or Baroness and experience a different story depending on your choice. The heroes in Eisenwald aren’t your typical dragon-slaying sorcerers, but relatable characters guided by a desire for glory, wealth, and even romance.
Turn Based – Discover a dynamic turn-based combat system in which attack is synonymous with movement.
Equip Your Army – Manage equipment and upgrade your units to customize your battalion.
Strategy comes into Play – Take over castles to strengthen your troops, then defend them with all you’ve got.
We were a few hours in and felt the story dragged and did not define it as well as it could. The gameplay however – specifically the battle system was more well defined and worked well.
Later on, in our play through it generally got better and we felt better of the story. The battles progressed in difficulty and the stories depth surprised us.
The game took a while to get into but it will be worth your time.
