I was wondering if any of the writers on this site were planning on reviewing Stardock's upcoming game, Elemental: War of Magic. I'm pretty excited about it, but beeing on a tight budget, want to make sure it's worth the cost. A review from someone here who's into that sort of thing and maybe an old time Master of Magic fan would go a long way in deciding if I buy it or not.

 

That failing, is anyone planning on picking it up anyway?

I'm knee deep in games at the moment Armand (as always) however, Lewis my brother may very well be interested. Based on what I've seen of Elemental it looks like one of those Big Ideas. I'm intrigued to know how the different, er, elements work together because it's supposed to be like an RPG, TBS, MMO type-thingy isn't it? The trailer didn't do an awful lot for me, it seemed to make the game look more dull than it probably is, though I do like the aesthetic they've gone for. I've read some people saying that the single player game is more of an RPG than a TBS but I suppose Stardock will gradually introduce the different game elements so it doesn't overwhelm you. It'd be nice to see a demo for people like yourself who aren't quite sure. How much is it? I know I could Google that but... pah!

Hmm, the more I look at this the more I'm tempted to get it... but man, does it look like a time sink. :-S

If it's good, I figure it will be a timesink of Civilization proportions.  : )

The trailer and graphics are doing absolutly nothing for me (though I figure mods will fix that.) I'd been following the development for a while, and the comparisons to Master of Magic were too tempting. Plus I like the whole liniage and marrying off ofspring factor.

The game is $50, which is a full price deal, and I know if I wait just a few months, it will be cheaper and heavily patched.. but you know how it is..

Eh.. maybe I'll just wait.
