Age of Fear 3: The Legend Gameplay Review

I'm playing Age of Fear 3: The Legend, a turn-based fantasy strategy game by The Age of Fear Team.



The game features two lengthy, challenging campaigns of scripted missions against numerous enemy units. In addition, multiplayer skirmish battles on a small number of maps (no randomized maps) are available on a LAN or against the AI; team rosters are customized before each match. There are a lot of units to choose from scattered across several races, with many interesting abilities to take advantage of during battle. Age of Fear 3 retains the gameplay of its predecessors: turn-based on maps devoid of hexes, where units can block the movement of enemies to shield heroes and support units. The AI is strong, able to cope with the multitude of unit abilities and provide a competent opponent. While the gameplay of Age of Fear 3: The Legend is not significantly different from the previous games in the series and the game engine has remained the same for six years, the long campaigns and huge variety of units and abilities do provide value in this new edition.
