Age of Sigma Warhammer: Storm Ground Review (Switch eShop)


Game workshop – A place where no one has fun.

Okay, let’s clarify; it is entirely possible to have a good time while playing their games or painting their models, or even chatting with their legendary helpful and accommodating staff.But choose a world, choose one game We can hardly say that any character had a good time in it. Necromancer? A demonic hell. talisman? They don’t even do this anymore, but it will be a shocking holiday destination. In any case, the point is that if someone asks us if we like to move quickly to the Sigma era, it will be difficult for us to refuse. Fortunately, in the form of video games, problematic times are a more palatable prospect. first of all.

But what is this “sigma age”, Did we hear you cry? Well, although it is a great potential game for the restart of Mega Man X, it seems to be a controversial remake of GW’s “Warhammer Fantasy War”; a new experience severely criticized by fans of the original product. Sounds familiar, gamer? We children because we love. In any case, in the “Warhammer Sigma Age: Lands of the Storm”, these are not particularly important; no matter the rule change may affect the war game itself, we don’t think it really affects this simpler and easier entry into the franchise. Turn-based tactics.

The core gameplay is an interesting hodgepodge of elements that will initially sound the alarm. The attention to collectible cards revealing new skills, war equipment, and upgrades made us squint, looking around for the inevitable microtransactions, but the result was a blank —— CurrentlyThe program is based on hexadecimal and is quite traditional. You play as your hero or unit from the card of your choice, then move and attack according to many other similar titles. Each round you will accumulate ether points, which can then be used for special actions with countless devastating effects. Each selectable faction has its own little quirks.

Initially, you have your common or garden, and never deliberately underestimate Stormcast Eternals (Thunder sounds), its hero unit can use her powerful hammer to knock the enemy into the air. If your target is killed by an attack, it may cause a devastating chain explosion reaction. You can also command Nighthaunt (here said), the servant of the Necromancer Nagash, which is a group of very dead souls whose main tactical advantage is their large number. Finally, there are maggots, which are basically what they sound like-disgusting, bloated monsters that excrete annoying mucus throughout the battlefield, destroying and poisoning their opponents.

In summary, it will take a while before Storm Ground allows you to relax with the faction of your choice. why? Thanks to an extremely wrong design decision that shocked us: the scourge of roguelike elements.

Don’t get us wrong-roguelikes (or rogueLiteAnyway-don’t worry about the little things), such as Dead Cells, The Binding of Isaac, and of course Hades are huge games that balance their progressive progression with perfectly sized game sessions. Storm Grounds will not do such a thing, kill you without hesitation three hours after the start of the game, and then send you back to the almost damn square. Yes, you can bring several units and their related Warband into your Warband every new attempt, but this is very frustrating.

The game does not seem to benefit from this approach, in which challenging and well-planned missions are designed to give play to the game’s tactical advantages in a more linear traditional structure. Except for some raised “platforms” and treasure chests that can be found occasionally, there is almost no topographical change. The roguelike element of Storm Grounds feels very popular here; well thought out, it’s not very good. This is not a big problem for multiplayer games, but the described mode does give up the advantages that may be beneficial to the game-the loot of single player games seems to be completely isolated from the loading of multiplayer games, which is quite confusing decision.

Unfortunately, because the instant game itself-and the demo-is very powerful. Even in handheld mode, it works well on the Switch, the user interface is suitable for smaller screens, and the controls are quite good. The animation may feel a bit long, but we never find ourselves frustrated with these small details. Unfortunately, the entire game has considerable flaws on a more basic level.

in conclusion

This game does not need to be roguelike, its structural quirks cast a shadow over the entire product.There is a wealth of content here, each faction has multiple battles and a lot of tactical space… but there is enough content in the category of “lottery”, so that it allows you to play the basically unchanged content a little bit Human hair means when you fail, even when you fail, over and over again successWarhammer fans may like the legendary bits and pieces and the typical ominous writing, but others may want to avoid the Age of Sigma: Land of the Storm. It must be an impressive game, but not the most important way.
