Ameenah Salamunic: Endless Legend delivers a definitive 4X strategy experience, enhanced by impressive visuals, rich soundscapes, compelling narrative and solid information architecture. Amplitude Studios’ level of artistry helps transform the complexities of an often tedious genre into a surprisingly accessible product, without ever diluting conquest canon. Fully appreciating Endless Legend, like its contemporaries, requires time. But this vivid sci-fantasy, with its animated watercolor aesthetic, deserves every minute invested. I am not the target 4X audience. Turn-based hexagonal strategy does not denote any conceivable percentage of my gaming library. But I am now seriously reconsidering that stance. Thankfully, the full release now offers a brief but helpful tutorial, absent from early access. The fact that my inexperience with the genre did not hinder my enjoyment demonstrates how strong this release truly is.
