The word “Epic” doesn’t even begin to describe it

Age of Wonders 3 calls you out to explore and conquer an enchanting fantasy world where bitterness between humans and elves is about to escalate into a full scale war.

The latest title in the series lets you customize your Leader by choosing between six races and classes (the expansions added more), which significantly alters not just the way you play but also what units you can field. The leader, as well as the heroes you recruit, can become more powerful through experience points. Diplomacy plays a large part in AoW3, and you can assimilate neutral settlements instead of conquering them, gaining access to their units, but allowing your culture and alignment to come under their influence.

Indeed, the complexity, addictiveness and all-around beauty that this game has to offer make it truly wondrous.
