This was a killer game..and would love to have it again.
One of my favorite DOS games. Excellent soundtrack.
Why is this not here already?!
GOG if you add Fantasy General I promise I will buy 10 other games on the spot. This is a promise I will keep for a game that is on my all time top 5.
Picked the disc version of this up at a Goodwill a few years ago. An excellent wargame and I would love a GOG version So I don't have to argue with Dosbox on my own.
Funnily enough, i played all the 5 Star series (okay, except Star General) and i found this one the most challenging and fun of them all...which came as a bit of a surprise.
Okay this needs to be here like ASAP GoG....please... :D
Easily one of the most addicting and toughest games I've ever had the pleasure of facing. Never did get to complete it... To get a GOG version of this would be heaven. Love Panzer General and SSI stuff, but this game's fantasy elements opened up a whole dimension to get lost in. Crossing all limbs for this one...
Surprised it's not already on GOG. A curious omission, to be sure. GOG is exactly where this game belongs.
Please bring this game back GOG along with the awesome music. This game had the best soundtrack I have ever heard.
This is one game for some reason I didn't finish, but I've often thought I'd like to play again. Lots of good turn-based strategy, and the fights were very challenging. I want a second chance. I'd buy it in a heartbeat....
One of my all time fav's. Still have all the original stuff. Want this sooo bad GoG.
I've still got an original CD copy of FG... I always thought it was much more enjoyable than Panzer General and would pay for it again. Also a soundtrack is a must, wonderful choral music.
would totally buy this again and so would my brother. The game kicked my ass back then, so I need some revenge ;)
A delightful game of the 5-star series. It's like a well illustrated fantasy on Panzar General 1. Like the PG series, it has annoying little logistical puzzelments that make you go "hey, it couldn't happen like that". However, here, you're to busy caught up in the novel fantasy, of, say, Rat-men being flanked by Phoenix knights, to pay it much mind.
Ooh--I'd give a lot to be able to play this again. I still have the CD, and I can play the soundtrack. But I've never wanted to fiddle with DOSBox myself to try running it. Wonderful game!
Best of "general" series. Massive campaign. And I mean really massive. Like 60 hours long or even more. Lots of fun. I never finished it. My hard disk died when I was on the final continent and kicking shadowlord's ass.
Has my Vote. Fantasy Wars is great but it feels to small scale and the missions are puzzle ish. I'd buy if gog sells.
Excellent GOOD OL GAME. I remember playing this back in the day. Good, deep strategy game. Challenging game with so many different units. The graphics are just down right charming and the soundtrack is perfect for transporting you into the world of a struggling Fanasy General! Personally enjoyed it as much as, if not more so, than Panzer General. GOG - you would make this gamer's day if you could bring this one back. PLEASE!
Far better than Fantasy Wars, great soundtrack, not a puzzle game - there are multiple ways to fight most scenarios, and it's long. Do it, and I'll buy it.
Please add this game GOG. So much fun and an awesome Strategy game. ah, the memories!
I loved this game! It was much deeper than Panzer General.
I've spent SO many hours in this game. It could easily challenge you HARD, yet still had a gentle enough learning curve that you didn't get too frustrated. So many alternate paths. So much strategy. And the soundtrack! Good lords above, I still got MP3s on my music player from that game. I don't care if it goes up for $49,95, I don't care if I had to sell a kidney to get it, that game would be MINE!
wonderful game and the soundtrack was really, really good: orchestral-bombastic.
I remember crawling through my old DOS-stuff some years ago searching for the CD just to rip the soundtrack. listen to 'keldonia' or 'let all mortal flesh keep silence' on yt for example.
One of the few games I've played hundreds of hours. I remember installing it in the root directory with no spaces (C:\FG or something like that), so it may take some help to bring to the Win XP / 7 era.
It works with DosBox. I have the CD version. I used the D.O.G Dos Box frontend to create an ISO of my CD and load it with DOSbox. You can do without but then you miss the wonderful Soundtrack which is saved as AudioCD
I agree- one of the very best strategy games ever.
Hope GOG manages to bring it back-
(as well as the former Talonsoft Battleground Titles)
One of the best pure strategy games I’ve played, and it’s also from an aesthetic point of view one of the all-time greats. Please make this happen GOG! =)
I believe it was released in DOS format only. You would need DOS box and an audio program as well to run it in XP.
The soundtrack is a must have to fully enjoy it.
I still have this as a cd-version. Has anyone tried if it works with win xp or 7?
Would also love to get this again, if only for the music. For any fans of the game, Fantasy Wars is essentially a very, very similar newer game btw.
I'll also buy it if you stock it. Been waiting for GOG to release it since day one... :(
Fantasy General was the finest moment in SSI's Five Star General series. Sadly I was too stupid to buy it while it was still easily available, and so when I finally found this hidden gem, I was forced to play the abandonware version (without the magnificent soundtrack). Therefore GOG version would be greatly appreciated.
sell it I will buy it
I am a fan of the whole 5-Star Series. I know there isn't a big call for war games or turn based strategies any more but PLEASE bring this wonderful series back. Ubisoft (who owns SSI's IPs) tried some Panzer General thing on XBL Arcade a while back and it was nothing like the old games. I know they can be found on abandon-ware sites but Please get Ubisoft to release all of them WITH multiplayer support. (Repeat comment for the whole 5-star series)
Fantastic strategy game. I want it.
I'll buy this if you stock it
