Battle for Wesnoth mini-review

28 October 2011

Overall 10/10

Battle for Wesnoth was one of the hidden gems I discovered once I stopped spending hours waiting for raids to start or grinding daily quests.

This is the sort of game I first loved PCs for (well after International Karate, Ultima 4 and Bubble Bobble).  A turn based strategic game based in a fantasy setting.  Think fantasy wargame.    It looks good despite only being old school VGA graphics.  It is clean and all the elements are easy to identify on the screen.  None of that mousing over random scenery to try and figure out if it’s something you can interact with or just eye candy.
