    Hmmm, I remember Spellforce 2 - loves it at the time. Was puzzled why there was no sequel. Good to see it's on the way :)

    This game badly need a random map editor that can create huge maps. It would instantly become my all time favorite game. I loved Spellforce 2. I secretly wish for it to become more Diablo like. Imagine Diablo RTS/RPG :O

    I spent a month finishing Spellforce 1 (on GOG), but have yet to finish any of it's expansions. Was planning on going through the series in succession. There was a bit of a tiff regarding the timed demo on GOG, but I decided to bite the bullet and got Spellforce 3 preordered. This is going to be a busy holiday month of gaming where I'll probably procrastinate in buying family Xmas gifts in a timely fashion.

    Well kinda, it is a blend of RPG and RTS.

    I loved building my character up like a normal RPG by buying cool gear at merchants and leveling up -- not even thinking about the RTS part -- then going back to my city and playing like an RTS. It's a good blend.

    Not fussed about a pause option. I don't think the first 2 had one? Apparently there is no 3rd person camera option like there was in 1 & 2. Not a deal breaker but would have been a nice addition.

    Will wait for more reviews before getting this for sure.

    This game looks fun but I'm a sucker for top down games ever since the U.O bug hit me. I actually never heard of this series before but reminds me of Warcraft with the voices ect just done in 3-D which took a while to catch up to 2-D games.

    Good lord, this game is beautiful! Seems this takes place before Order of the Dawn- guess I can skip out on finishing the prior titles to enjoy this one exclusively for now.

    Based on the comments on the forums, it sounds like the game still has quite a few bugs to be ironed out. The devs have been very active with patching (already 1.08 a few days after release).

    Gonna hold off getting this one until it gets patched up good n proper.

    So, this game is pretty rad.

    You definitely have to be in the mood for a story though.

    It's spellforce. When I originally purchased spellforce it had a bug in calculating purchases. I could buy everything.

    Without a doubt I will buy the game, it's just a matter of when. Not if.

    I haven't encountered any bugs yet. I think I have about 3-4hrs in.

    The only thing I had to adjust was binding the camera rotations to my mouse. It really brings my system to its knees. I just boughta RX580 and its maxing out around 45fps @ 1080

    I can't remember if I have the resolution scaling to 1.5 or 1.25 though.

    There is a GoG link in there, it's just really small. I'll be picking it up on GoG rather than Steam once I get some free time.

    I really want to revisit this game one day. After grabbing Divinity Original Sin 2 I just haven't had any urge to come back to Spellforce 3 though.

    Ok finally had a chance to play this game. One thing you need to do is choose traditional gameplay at the start town management is easier than I thought it would be less managing. This game is a lot easier than Warhammer was for me anyway. Long story short I refunded the game but bought it again because I knew this was a unique groundbreaking game.

    This is a nice game it's doesn't say look at me it's very humble looking much like a old school game. Some stuff looks kinda obscure due to the characters kinda blending into the background.

    How are the bugs? I seem to remember a bunch of complaints when it first came out. I plan on getting but put it off until it had time to be patched a bit. Worth it now?

    I'm only two hours in the regulars on the steam forums say they are all ironed out.
