The Average Gamer says "There are multiple ways to tackle each situation; your talents, etc. can alter the battlefield in infinite ways. You will fail, you will see your heroes die, but do not be disheartened. Battlefields can offer different win conditions, be it having set characters reach an end zone, or defeating all enemies. These, along with the very deep character development system, will provide you with different experiences to your friends, and will still be rewarding when you replay Blackguards 2."
