Eador: Genesis was a game which is clearly built in the Heroes of Might & Magic mold. Created by Alexander Bokulev, a lone Russian programmer working for 3 years almost entirely on his own, it gained a modest following but did not receive much exposure or marketing. The game itself, however, was recognized as an undiscovered gem. Snowbird Games, with the collaboration of Bokulev, recognized this potential and have now brought us an enhanced remake of Genesis with Eador: Masters of the Broken World.
Eador: Masters of the Broken World (or just Eador: MotBW for short) is still just as good a strategy-RPG as the original one, with extremely deep and interesting mechanics, and more complexity than might initially meet the eye. But unfortunately, it's hard to fully recommend just yet. Read on to find out why. -
