Turn-based fantasy strategy games with rpg elements

GOGmix by Sargon's avatarSargon 44votes

Age of Wonders

Sargon's rating:
250

Sargon says: The best fantasy TBS. If you want to experience a part of another world, it's tragedies and triumphs, this is your game. Epic tactical battles with many possibilities. Great strategic depth. Handmade portraits and a description for every unit.

Age of Wonders: Shadow Magic

Sargon's rating:
250

Sargon says: Like it's predecessor it is the top of the crop in the genre. Compared to it it has more balanced hero progression (but less freedom). Many gameplay additions and some subtractions. A random map generator. A living community. Less serious atmosphere.

Age of Wonders 2: The Wizard's Throne

Sargon's rating:
250

Sargon says: Only buy this for the campaign and the custom maps (which can be copied and pasted into AoW: SM. This game was improved with the release of "Age of Wonders - Shadow Magic" which is a stand-alone expansion to AoW II with many new additions.

Heroes of Might and Magic® 2: Gold

Sargon's rating:
250

Sargon says: A truly great game! Lush, detailed and beautiful graphics that makes you want to explore. Fairy-tale feeling. Very fun and exiting strategic and tactical gameplay. Really great sound and music. No angels nor devils. My favourite of the series.

Heroes of Might and Magic® 3: Complete

Sargon's rating:
250

Sargon says: Much of the same as it's predecessor. The artwork and music have a very different style. It is great and very immersive in both games. More possibilities, but HoMM II is no lightweight game either! Both games are highly recommended!

Heroes of Might and Magic®

Sargon's rating:
250

Sargon says: Only for Heroes of Might and Magic fans. It was a good game when it came out, but HoMM II built upon and vastly improved it. Same overland graphics as HoMM II mostly. Different graphics for cities, units and battles. Different music.

Master of Magic

Sargon's rating:
250

Sargon says: A great game! Like a mix between civilization and the aforementioned games. "Endless" possibilities and replayability. Unbalanced, so don't read up on the strategy before you play it. A lot of the fun is exploring the gameworld\mechanics.

Lords of Magic: Special Edition

Sargon's rating:
250

Sargon says: Flawed, but still a good game. Atmospheric, many possibilities, some of the best fantasy game music made. A very charming world. Unfortunately the tactical battles are fought in real time.

Disciples 2 Gold

Sargon's rating:
250

Sargon says: Very good graphics. Unfortunately more shallow than the other games here, especially the tactical battles which plays more like Final Fantasy than Heroes of Might and Magic. Still a pretty good game.

Disciples: Sacred Lands Gold

Sargon's rating: not rated yet
250

Sargon says: I haven't played this but I suspect that it has many similarities to Disciples 2. The graphics are not so good.

Fantasy Wars

Sargon's rating: not rated yet
250

Sargon says: The extremely generic and uninspiring graphics makes it very unappealing . In it's mechanics it is supposed to be quite similar to the earlier game "Fantasy General". I hope that game comes to GOG as well.

Heroes of Might and Magic® 4: Complete

Sargon's rating: not rated yet
250

Sargon says: I haven't tried this one yet but I have great expectations for a new fresh take on the great gameplay of the previous games, more good music from Rob King and more focus on storytelling. The AI is supposed to be bad.

Heroes Chronicles: All chapters

Sargon's rating: not rated yet
250

Sargon says: For fans of HoMM III. If you want more campaigns there are eight of them here. Nothing new otherwise but there should be a lot of gameplay here. The campaigns are supposed to be easier but the difficulty is adjustable so veterans can play too.

Heroes of Might and Magic® 5: Bundle

Sargon's rating:
250

Sargon says: I really dislike this game. The artwork is horrible. The characters are designed in a World of Warcraft \ anime style and look hideously deformed. Story and dialogue is laughable. The gameplay though is quite good, an inferior take on HoMM III.

Etherlords

Sargon's rating: not rated yet
250

Sargon says: The game is made by Nival like HOMM 5 above. I haven't tried it yet. I don't know how many RPG elements there are in this game since the battle mode is more similar to "Magic the Gathering" but it looks like it belongs on this list.

Eador: Genesis

Sargon's rating: not rated yet

Sargon says: Just bought it and it looks like an awesome game!

Age of Wonders 3

Sargon's rating: not rated yet

Sargon says: Not tested yet.

Eador. Masters of the Broken World

Sargon's rating: not rated yet
250

Sargon says: This is a remake of the first game. Eador: Genesis. But it is supposed to be worse.

Treat your GOGmix as your child - name it! ;)

Coming up with a cool and descriptive title should be your first priority. Being original is in your best interest - bet you wanna get lots of nice votes, right? Go all crazy if you want, but be sure to keep it civil!

So, what are the ingredients?

Pick a game that belongs in your GOGmix from the list, or find it by typing something in the text field. Relevance is key here - Earthworm Jim doesn't quite fit the "Sexiest heroines of all time" bill now, does it?

Justify your choice... Or not!

OK, so it's not required, but now that you went through the trouble of adding a game, telling everyone why you did it would be a nice finishing touch. After you're done here, add another game, rinse, repeat.
