|PlayXcess has tossed up a review of Infinite's RPG-flavored strategy game 'Warlords Battlecry III'. Rating: 7/10.
Gotrek the dwarf ran a finger over the honed edge of his axe, notched with glory and conquest as it was. The chill east wind flicked his beard as the tail of a Minotaur and the blood red sky portended bloodshed to come. From the south, the elves were massing an assault, and the honour of the elders would be made or shattered this day. As the ochre sun crept into the sky, Gotrek tore his beard and threw down his axe in disgust. He was sick of fantasy cliché RTS games, and had no desire to be part of another one. And you have to acquiesce to his point; second only to the throng of WW2 RTS games is the fantasy RTS genre, equally at boiling point. The Warlords Battlecry series is an established one in the gaming canon, despite genre heavyweights dominating the scene like a fat man at an ice cream stand. The Battlecry series always forged a striking path, boasting cunning campaigns, persistent hero characters and more playable races than several lesser fantasy RTS games combined and spliced. The question is, do we really have it in us for build one more elven temple and send out peons to gather wood and stone? Wouldn’t we all rather sit and punish ourselves by watching Stars in Their Eyes as opposed to building one more fantasy-themed base?
