The sequel to the turn-based fantasy game, “Warlock 2: The Exiled” expands on the first game in every single aspect. This game brings a unique mystic spin on the traditional turn-based strategy game to bring an experience that makes it like no other game out there.
- The game looks beautiful and the presentation is high quality, big improvement over its predecessor.
The difficulty is welcomed, new players who want a light breeze through the game can play on Casual and the more experienced players will get a nice amount of challenge on ‘Normal’ and up.
Production values have improved tremendously since the first game, graphics are more current and the voice acting is superb.
The added planes warping and heroes for hire mechanics keep the game entertaining and always on your feet.
Some features/components of the game are unexplained, such as the gods and their backgrounds.
Could have used more lore and scenarios/explanations to fully flesh out the world of Ardania and its planes.
It’s still heavily focused on warfare with very little deviation on win conditions.
“Warlock 2: The Exiled” has a much more unique take this time around and drifts farther from bring a Civilization clone with some mysticism to a game with its own personality. Thankfully, the developers didn’t fix what wasn’t broken and made it even more addicting to play.
