Spellforce is your classic real-time strategy and role-playing series that has been around since 2003. The series is set in a fantasy world called Eo ruled over by near-immortal mages and include various other races including humans, orcs, elves, dark elves, dwarves and trolls.

Like most RPG and RTS games spellforce, others complex skill trees to progress through as you level your heroes and get to choose a combination of many skill tree paths to unlock your skills and abilities to make your hero stronger. These include dark and light magic, archery, arcane archery, brutality and others. Gameplay is over the top of the map and giving you an aerial view of Eo’s vast beautiful landscape.

This opened a huge amount of lore in the begging to get us up to speed on the story, so even if you are new to spellforce or a returning fan you will understand the story and the world that you are discovering.

The story is very rich and filled with cinematic detail as well as an intense soundtrack to follow the story as you progress through the world of Eo’s. The beauty the game holds is unparalleled in offering vast detail in scenery both during cinematic scenes and during levels. You can easily get lost in the story and forget about time completely while you enjoy such a stunning and exciting storyline.
I awarded the score I did because I believe I can spend hours doing only a few level and still not break the surface of the vast story available. The content available for an RTS is huge and could fill months of enjoyment in just playing the story. All that I found bad with the Spellforce is while razing buildings once 80% is destroyed, the hit points glitch out, but it doesn't hinder the experience of the game too much and for that, I scored 9.
