Quoting parrottmath, reply 22
What is the game play like in Age of Wonders (never played the series)?
Same here, I have never played it. But what I can see here only ignorant people are fans of the game and do little to promote it.
From what I could see from the game play it looked to me to be a heavily modded version of the Civ engine, but |I couldn't get a straight answer on this subject.
To answer the only real question/concern you have raised so far - no the engine is NOTHING like the Civ engine. It is completely new. Clear now?
Tattyhat, I am not a fanboy and still reserve judgement for the game, but I seriously cannot understand how you can be so derogatory and dismissive when (I) it's not out yet, and you haven't even played a demo (ii) most of the previews and reviews are complementary and (iii) IT'S ONLY A GAME !!!
And to go so far as to call everyone who defends the game "ignorant" does little to help your case...
Seriously, dude, take a chill pill!!!
