Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissmal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.
The subject of this installment: the Revelations DLC for Age of Wonders: Planetfall, developed by Triumph Studios and published by Paradox Interactive.
(Space) Cadillacs and Dinosaurs
HIGH Spectacular combo of grand strategy and tactical combat.
LOW Rough tutorial, inconsistent AI, unstable multi, minor UI bugs.
WTF The “succubots” slapping their own butts as idle animation.
