Welcome to Aarklash, a land of chaos where incessant battles between the forces of Light, Destiny and Darkness have lasted since the beginning of time. At the heart of this conflict, a group of mercenaries, wrongly accused of crimes against the Lion of Alahan, is being hunted down.

A path strewn with obstacles and many unfriendly characters awaits them. Go into battle and fight for your life! Your actions will determine the destiny of Aarklash…
Inspired by the Confrontation figurines universe, Aarklash: Legacy is a tactical adventure game. The player will find himself at the heart of the intrigue, controlling a group of 4 characters and leading them into battle across the lands of Alahan, Acheron, and the Behemoth. Final victory for the mercenaries is gained by the use of a wide range of powers which are enhanced through looting items and managed via skills trees which can be reset at will.

I can't remember last time I played a game with such tasty combat. There are tons of options and every little decision matters. It's a micromanagers dream. Skills are very diverse and you are free to creatively come up with combos, in fact you have to or the enemies will kick your ass. They all have their own unique traits and some very deadly abilities. Game is hard in the mostread more satisfactory way. Try to bash through the enemy resistance and you will be locked down in no time, but once you learn their weaknesses some adversarial gonads will be hurting.
Every character come with their unique skill tree and you can rebuild it any time you like. It's brilliant. Combined with your ability to choose which 4 of the 8 characters to bring you can try all kinds of interesting builds. Between fights there are some puzzles. I quite liked them. Nothing too hard but leaves you feeling clever and they're always logical.
Story kept me engaged, albeit some voice work is terribly over acted. I'd say you might be disappointed if you're expecting a fleshed out rpg. 100% focus is on gameplay. There are no side quests or lore to get lost in, no grinding, no backtracking. It's a game for strategy enthusiasts who want streamlined thinking man's action. It's a game for people who thrive on grim opposition and squeel a little when they finally figure out the perfect response and fire off 7 deadly spells in perfect harmony.

I own this on Steam and can say the combat is top notch. It fuses WoW raid mechanics with a MOBA style interface. You need to pay careful attention to the enemies abilities and execute your strategy properly to pass an encounter.
Otherwise, not much else to see here, unfortunately. The story and world are laughably bad, and the puzzles are snoozefests.

Don't let all those glowing, high, and positive reviews fool you.
What this game is in a nutshell:
It is just battle after battle to you beat it.
That's it, no depth, no soul, no charm, no replay.
No lore, no cities, no story, no plot, no shops, no interaction with npcs.
No items of any kind besides the 4 accessory types.
Game is far too short, game ends inread more mini-cliff hanger.
Finite experience points, moot point as you will hit max level long before end game.
For how much this game doesn't have makes its high price point a big rip-off.
Battles are pretty varied and decent amount of tactics.
Pretty good looking game. Unique characters.
Try it for yourself if you don't believe me, waste your money.
Go with other better games, like the much bigger Dragon Age: Origins.
Ps. This is my first review on gog, which I own over 350 gog games, I just had to voice my disappointment as a gamer with 25+ years of gaming.
