The developer has just spent some time alleviating concerns.  Don't take it off your wishlists yet!

I liked the responses and the thought process behind some of the decisions, especially the response to the undead. I loved the original Fantasy General and while FGII will definitely remain on my wishlist, I'll wait and see how the reviews land before pulling the trigger.

Fantasy isn't my main thing, so this was never going to be a day one buy for me. I like the answers, and seems like a decent value if the campaign is 28-33 maps long. i don't mind the lack of factions if the there is a lot of unit variety, and different build choices. I do wish you could play the campaign from either side, but will reserve judgement until feedback on the campaign. It will depend on how the campaign branches and how interesting the choices are along the way, hopefully there are a bunch of interesting mission types. There's skirmish and random maps, so there's added value there. I do hope the animations are good, its an important feature for me in a fantasy game. At the end of the day i just want to throw some fireballs and lightening around and maybe freeze some enemies so i can feel the power...muhahahaha.

My guess is standard Slitherine price $39.99

Looks like there is a slight language barrier and the concept of ‘faction,’ or their take on it, needs to be explained better. Feeling better about this title now, a bit.

Yeah.  So long as they force you to make trade-offs between complementing your core "Empire" troops with "Undead" versus "some other branch", I'm fine with that.  If they just let you pick from a buffet of 30 different units, I'm not sure it will hang together for me, from a narrative source.

And I do think they need one "evil" faction, even if it's just a race of voracious, ravenous creatures that eat everything (similar to the Tyranids in WH40K).

^Thanks for posting. Review is kinda short on details, but maybe that is because the game itself is a little lean in content right now?

They sound rubbish, whoever they are.

Just as a note of apology - Google doesn't like it if I replicate content between sites and FG2 could legitimately be featured on both. Since I don't want to pay for a second review, I decided to have the main review up on WG, with a summary post on SG.

Sorry if that's caused any confusion.

Perfect timing. My ten year anniversary discount from Matrix has arrived! I think this might be worth $22.39.  O0

No price listed on The Steam yet :(

No official prices since Matrix/Slitherine never does that prior to release day....but someone guessed prices in their forum and a developer said they were close, but likely would be more than their guess.  Here was the person's guess.

Hero: $45
General: $70




If I had to personally guess, I would go with something like:

Base: $39.99
Hero: $49.99
General: $79.99

two out of three correct:)
