GameSpace

Rating: 8/10

“The game is far above the average, but with little things like control issues, bugs and AI behavior met frequently enough to sour the impression.”

Pros:

  • Unique mix of RPG & RTS
  • Beautiful aesthetics
  • Deep systems

Cons:

  • Clunky controls
  • Lack of precision in commands
  • Bugs and glitches
  • Visual clutter

GameWatcher

Rating: 7/10

“SpellForce 3 is a unique mix of strategy and RPG mechanics that miraculously loses very few of either. It asks no knowledge of the previews titles, and features co-op and PvP multiplayer modes in addition to the rather long single-player campaign. Ironically, in an age of MOBA’s ad strategy-less strategy games, this years-old staple of game design feels surprisingly refreshing.”

Pros:

  • Beautiful and often responsive combat
  • Amazing soundtrack
  • Good graphics
  • Significant base-building aspects
  • Interesting lore and dialogue

Cons:

  • Bit to focused on micromanagement
  • Units are quite hard to select or precisely control in battles
  • Character development is rather shallow


Hardcore Gamer

Rating: 8/10

“2017 was already a great year for RPG’s and SpellForce 3 adds another entry on an already impressive list as the year comes to a close.”

Pros:

  • Blending of genres come together smoothly
  • Delivered on the potential it showed while still in development
  • Gives a unique experience

Cons:

  • Might not be the deepest individual RTS and RPG experience ever created.
  • Hardcore CRPG or RTS fans might find the game systems for the respective genres less complex than some of their favorites.
  • Not the most original idea for a plot


IGN Italia

Rating: 6.5/10

“With a full-bodied campaign of about 30 hours, it is not the contents that are lacking, but rather the sense of wonder that should push the player to discover them completely.”

Pros:

  • Interesting background idea
  • Long-lived campaign

Cons:

  • Poor characterization of heroes and factions
  • Uninspired aesthetics
  • Assorted berries
